1. Loose cuts and short ends [Lobster #31 (Jun 1996)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 31) June 1996 Last| Contents| Next Issue 31 Loose cuts and short ends Spycatcher in Kenya? Peter Wright? Is the picture on the right that of the old Spycatcher himself, Peter Wright? It has been used as if it is three times, in the Sunday Times on 12 July 1987 and 16 October 1988; and more recently, the version shown, heavily cropped to illustrate Wright's obituary in the Independent, 28 April 1995. It was taken in 1952, and the original caption was 'Peter Wright from Kenya'. It accompanied the story of the expulsion of 'Peter Wright' from Kenya by the British colonial authorities and ...

... the left first. Elsewhere in this issue is my contribution to the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom's book on the 1984 miners' strike. In that I repeat for the umpteenth time Peter Wright's story in Spycatcher that MI5 knew about the covert Soviet funding of the CPGB in the 1950s and neither exposed it nor tried to stop it. Wright is rubbished repeatedly by Andrew and he does not refer to this claim of Wright's. However on p. 403 he writes this: 'The Security Service had "good coverage" of the secret Soviet funding of the CPGB, monitoring by surveillance and telecheck the regular collection of Moscow's cash subsidies by two members of the Party's International Department, ...

3. Nothern Ireland redux [Lobster #38 (Winter 1999)]
... MP and later SDP member of the House of Lords, John Diamond, was taken in 1964.The picture was extremely fuzzy- presumably taken with a long lens- and it is impossible to tell whether the two women are 20 or 50, never mind whether they were attractive or not. Livingstone states in his column: 'The spy master Peter Wright, of Spycatcher fame, makes no mention in his book of the extensive work he undertook in Ireland, yet he was the central figure among the group of MI5 officers trying to bring down the Labour government.' In Spycatcher, Wright refers to his time in Northern Ireland on pp. 358 and 59. If there is other ...

He began it by revealing that the MI5 source who had claimed that Martin McGuinness had fired the first shot at the 'Bloody Sunday ...

5. ...MI5 goes on forever [Lobster #26 (Dec 1993)]
... in politics That covert role is one of the things fleetingly glimpsed in MI5's pamphlet The Security Service (36 pages, £4.95 from HMSO). In the page and a half long 'Outline history of the Security Service' we find this: 'The atmosphere of Cold War allegations also lay behind the highly publicised claims of the former officer Peter Wright that the Service had plotted to undermine the former Prime Minister Harold Wilson. A vigorous internal enquiry failed to produce any evidence to substantiate these claims, and Wright himself subsequently admitted that they were false.' This is a nice illustration of the drafting skill which is so valued in Whitehall. In the first place, Wright never did ...

... It refers the reader to Spycatcher and Peter Wright's allegation that 'up to 30 members of the Service had plotted to undermine former Prime Minister, Harold Wilson'. MI5 say that the allegation was 'exhaustively investigated and it was concluded, as stated publicly by Ministers, that no such plot ever existed'. In the end, they continue, Wright admitted on Panorama in 1988 that 'his account had been unreliable and only one other member of staff had been involved in any serious discussion regarding a plot'. Clearly MI5 want readers to infer from this that Wright himself and the 'one other member of staff' were the villains of the piece, and that the allegations were mostly based ...

... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 23) June 1992 Last| Contents| Next Issue 23 There's no smear like an old smear The Spycatcher's Encyclopedia of Espionage Peter Wright Heinemann, Australia, 1991 The cover-blurb says this is 'the rest of the story'. It feels more like the out-takes from Spycatcher spiced with a few more fragments of interesting gossip. And I do mean fragments: the interesting bits of 260 pages-- largish print and much white space-- would reduce to about 2 single-spaced A4 sheets. For example: on p. 35 he lists the educationalist Brian Simon, a sometime CPGB member, among Soviet 'spies', an allegation which has produced a ...

... Everybody laughed. We laughed a lot in those days. Whoever was tapping our phones heard lots of laughter. I taped a long interview with Fred and Colin that day which appeared as a double-page spread in Tribune- and then the first dribs and drabs began to leak out of Australia about a book by a former MI5 officer called Peter Wright in which he apparently mentioned plotting against the Wilson government; and my telephone began to ring. Lots of journalists wanted me to explain the story. And no wonder, looking back on it. The Wallace narrative was very difficult to become adept at- even if you believed that the story was true. Fred and Colin, with ...

9. The miners and the secret state (Winter 2009/2010) [Lobster #58 (Winter 2009/2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... Contents Lobster 58 The miners and the secret state* Robin Ramsay In his 1987 book Spycatcher former MI5 officer Peter Wright revealed one of MI5's biggest secrets; but focused as we were on his comments about the plotting against Harold Wilson, we didn't initially notice the section on page 175 where he wrote that the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) 's 'Reuben Falber...had recently been made cashier of the Russian funds. Wright tells us that MI5 planned to burgle Falber's flat in search of the files detailing the payments but their plan failed and he leaves it there. To MI5 in 1958 the proof of the 'Moscow gold' must have had something of ...

10. Colin Wallace - an assessment [Lobster #14 (Nov 1987)]
... Ware persists in these baseless attacks on Wallace we may be forced to spend a morning in the Colindale Library digging out Ware's articles on Northern Ireland. One of the oddities about all this has been the fact that Wallace has been the subject of far more professional scepticism and paranoia on the part of our journalists than either Cathy Massiter or Peter Wright. This I find curious. Cathy Massiter was never available to the press: access to her was always tightly controlled and these days she is wholly unavailable. She gave up very little in real terms: some information on surveillance which anyone not asleep at the wheel has taken for granted for years; some fragments on the MI5-MOD-Tory Party ...
