GCHQ stands for Government Communications Head Quarters.
Basically it is Britain's electronic listening post, and along with MI5 and MI6, is part of the UK's defences against terrorist and military
threats, from both within the nation, and outside its borders. It is the head quarters for something called SIGINT, or Her Majesty's Government's
Signal Intelligence. This is a section of the UK intelligence network that started after World War One, being comprised of segments of the old COMINT
units of the Navy, Airforce and Army.
It is also the former workplace of Gareth Williams ...
