" It is the long standing policy of successive governments not to comment in detail on matters of intelligence"

A long standing policy, whose time has come to change. Especially given that people, where they've thought about it at all, have always assumed that spying is carried out against our "enemies" and now find it is apparently primarily carried out against our citizens and our businesses and our political representatives by spying agencies of "friendly" nations or by those of our nation on behalf of these supposedly "friendly" nations.

What a change from the cold war eh?
Back then you couldn't be sure who "our" spies were working for, but nowadays, we know who they are working for and we even officially accept payment for it too.
