Rothschild, the right, the far-right and the Fifth Man

[…] misplaced – than the Rothschild version. It has been reported that the publishers of this pamphlet, Intercity Research, was a joint effort of Lady Birdwood and Ross McWhirter.

The National Association for Freedom

[…] largely a ‘notepaper job’ – an impressive list and little more. The full council rarely, if ever, met. An inner core – Robert Moss, John Gouriet, Norris McWhirter and Michael Ivens of Aims – took most of the decisions.
