This is odd. How is it that the former chief executive of the UK Intellectual Property Office arrives just in time to "accidentally" spy on Megaupload Limited for the U.S. of America, installed as the Prime Minister's head spy at the New Zealand Government's communications security service? These "accidents" such as omitting to tell Dotcom's lawyer they wanted to take all Megaupload Limited's property are fictional, for God's sake. When does someone get held to account and restrained from having all these "accidents"??????

Ian then worked in Trade Policy at the end of the GATT Uruguay Round, and continued this work during a secondment with European Commission, negotiating in the World Trade Organisation on Free Trade Agreements. Ian returned to the UK in 1998 and, after working in DTI’s HR area, Ian joined the then Overseas Trade Services organisation at the time the Wilson Review of Export Promotion was being finalised and British Trade International was being established, working on finance HR and corporate policy issues. In 2000, Ian undertook a secondment with the UN Administration in Kosovo as Head of the Customs Service and Department of Trade & Industry. He returned later that year to head DTI’s Directorate responsible for electricity and gas policy.
