In a brief press
conference after leaving from a meeting with Prime Minister David
Cameron at 10 Downing Street, Romney nonchalantly mentioned he had met
with the head of the British intelligence agency MI6.
The UK takes its super-secret intelligence service very seriously, refusing to even confirm its existence until 1994.
However, Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which handles press
for MI6, said Romney’s comment was a slip-up, and refused to acknowledge
any such meeting.
