That is SIS to you

male operative

This month saw the launch of the new James Bond character: tougher, grittier and without the gadgets.  In real life it saw the launch of the MI6 website.  This is quite a development for the organisation which refused to acknowledge its own existence publically a mere 10 years ago.  The story is also covered in the Guardian.

Last week I found the above sign in a service station in England. Exactly what kind of organisation refers to its employees as operatives?
