(c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 38) Winter 1999 Last| Contents| Next Issue 38 Defending the Realm: MI5 and the Shayler Affair Mark Hollingsworth and Nick Fielding Andre Deutsch, London, 1999 £17.99 At one level this whole Shayler affair is quite odd. For Shayler is the quintessential, contemporary, football-mad, New Labour-oriented, a-political technocrat- someone who can use the word 'modern' without blushing and putting it in scare quotes. (Shayler's complaints about MI5 can be seen in his submission to the Cabinet Office Review of the security and intelligence services, printed here as appendix 2: they are almost entirely bureaucratic and technical.) In a recent column of his ...

2. Our Secret Servants: the Shayler affair [Lobster #34 (Winter 1998)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 34) Winter 1998 Last| Contents| Next Issue 34 Our Secret Servants: the Shayler affair Things had been going rather well for the British security and intelligence services in the 1990s. Under pressure from the Wright-Wallace-Massiter revelations of the 80s, they had conceded a notional form of parliamentary accountability with the creation of the Intelligence and Security Committee. With members who either knew nothing about the subject, or who, like chair Tom King, had been part of the system as a minister, said committee had investigated nothing of consequence and issued a number of anodyne reports. No new revelatory horrors seemed to be on the horizon. MI5 and SIS ...

Rereading it, I was struck by the following. Although we now know ...

... done. And unlike CND which raised its own money as far as I know, young Mr Butler, we are told, got $1000 from the US embassy in London to take a couple of chums across to the States to beat the bushes for private sector funding for his project.(12) Robin Cook at the Foreign Office Shayler Hundreds of column inches about the David Shayler affair between August 2 and August 10 1998 produced rather little of significance other than the fact that Shayler, while head of MI5's Libya desk, learned from his MI6 counterpart that 6 had bunged £100,000 at a Libyan exile group to try and kill Gadhafi. Trying to contain the ...

6. Steady as she goes: Labour and the spooks [Lobster #35 (Summer 1998)]
... of New Labour I feel beholden to write something on this subject, but what is there worth saying that isn't blindingly and depressingly obvious and predictable? Jack Straw, who took over as Home Secretary, and thus formally as the boss of MI5, is determined to sedate any sleeping dogs he comes across. When former MI5 officer, David Shayler, turned up bearing bad news about MI5, Straw bolted for respectability, proving a worthy inheritor of the Labour tradition of grovelling towards our secret servants exemplified by Merlyn Rees in the Callaghan Government. David Aaronovitch in the Independent on Sunday (9 April 1998) gave us an insight into Cabinet thinking on MI5's plans to destroy most of ...

During the trial he was not able to utilise a public interest defence (previously ruled out by House of Lords, see below); in addition, PII certificates signed by the Home and Foreign secretaries prevented any disclosures relating to security ...

... first conference raising issues of national security and freedom of expression and asked why no-one from the authorities was present. Many members of the Labour government had been very critical of, and voted against the OSA 1989 because it allowed the prosecution of whistleblowers, but a Labour Attorney General consented to the prosecution of the author Tony Geraghty, Wylde and Shayler. Nick Fielding of the Sunday Times said that most of the debate was taking place in the courts and Parliament was left behind in the debate, the government refusing to discuss secrecy issues. A free press was the last resort for getting allegations out, David Shayler said. 'My experience shows we don't have a balance between free expression ...

... Robin Cook standing up and reading a brief written for him which makes him look like an idiot. (And, of course, their budgets are increased.) Everything you need to know about out politicians' relationship with the security services is expressed by the fact that they the politicians refused to even listen to what Machon and Shayler had to say. As did the Intelligence and Security Committee. Oversight? Overlook, more like it. As always happens, the system then tries to shoot the messenger bearing the bad news. When it comes to this, the system springs into life and proves to be very competent indeed. The second half of the book is ...

While the ISC were being invited to look at Mitrokhin and the way he was handled by MI6, messrs Shayler and Tomlinson, the two most important defectors from the British security agencies since Philby, were in exile in one case and in jail in the other. While Shayler was sitting in a French jail the House of Commons had its first debate on the work of the ISC which had produced its first report that summer: neither report nor ...
