Mystery Met deep cover Activist group infiltrator "Officer A"

Indymedia UK article on Mark Stone , aka Mark Kennedy , a police officer who infiltrated the Nottingham activist scene in 2001 . Kennedy/Stone admitted his role after being confronted
UPDATE: Stone goes rogue and reveals details of operations and "outs" other officers. A police chief with detailed knowledge of the deployments of undercover officers in the protest movement said Kennedy's breach of protocol could lead to the "relocation of a considerable number of people". At an estimated 250,000 per person what have the UK government been spending taxpayer money on while making huge austerity cuts?

“Mark 'Stone' has been an undercover police officer from 2000 to at least the end of 2009. We are unsure whether he is still a serving police officer or not. His real name is Mark Kennedy. Investigations into this identity revealed evidence that he has been a police officer, and a face-to-face confession has confirmed this. Mark claims that he left the police force in late 2009, and that before becoming an undercover officer he was a Metropolitan police constable.

Please pass this information on to anyone who may have been in contact with Mark in the last decade, both in the UK and abroad.”

UPDATE: the plot has thickened. It appears that Stone has "gone rogue" and revealed details of a web of other undercover operatives in deep cover investigating the activities of activists. It appears his activities span 22 countries.

A police chief with detailed knowledge of the deployments of undercover officers in the protest movement said Kennedy's breach of protocol could lead to the "relocation of a considerable number of people". At an estimated cost of 250,000 per person per year, what are the priorities of the UK government, past and present if they continue to spend large amounts of taxpayer money on the surveillance of peaceful activists and protesters while making huge austerity cuts?
