For Your Eyes Only: Swedish Bond gala criticized
STOCKHOLM – Were the martinis shaken, not stirred? Nobody knows, but a James Bond-themed party thrown by Sweden's security service sure didn't adhere to this one-liner from "Casino Royale:" ''I will be keeping my eye on our government's money."
Sweden's prime minister has urged the heads of government agencies to control their spending on staff parties after the SAPO security service admitted it held a Bond bash for $650,000.
The Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported that SAPO threw the party for its 1,000 employees in June 2011, featuring roulette tables, a tuxedo-clad orchestra playing Bond film music, and song, dance and comedy performances by Swedish artists.
