... the Workers Party and the Progressive Unionist Party in Northern Ireland Roger Cottrell Before he went on the run, in the wake of Ernie Elliot's murder in 1972, former British soldier and UDA member David Fogel gave an interview to the London Times.(1 ) In it he denounced sectarianism and said that he hoped that one day the Official IRA and the UDA would work together, because both organisations have the working people at heart' (Boulton, 1974; 182-183). Sadly, for all that Glen Barr's founding of the New Ulster Political Research Group in November 1974 (in the aftermath of the UWC Strike) represented a genuine attempt to find a working class ...

3. Nothern Ireland redux [Lobster #38 (Winter 1999)]
... writes: To republicans and nationalists it was clear evidence of collusion between members of the security forces and the loyalist paramilitaries' (emphasis added). Not so: it was clear evidence to anyone. Taylor describes how, using state intelligence, the UDA's targeting' of the Nationalist community improved: fewer Catholics were murdered at random, more IRA members. Another way of describing these events would be this: the British Army was running the UDA's assassins against the IRA - and successfully, too. In effect, in the late 1980s the British state decided that while they could not kill the IRA openly (the late Alan Clark MP's solution: let the SAS loose), ...

4. Out of the blue and into the black [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... Gill and Macmillan, 2006, 22.99, h/b Out of the blue and into the black Roger Cottrell When Fred Holroyd first made his disclosures regarding the activities of SAS Captain Robert Nairac to Duncan Campbell of The New Statesman in 1984, they were credible because Holroyd was a loyal Army Intelligence Captain with absolutely no sympathies for IRA terrorism. (1 ) Despite efforts on the part of Martin Dillon in The Dirty War (Hutchinson, 1989) to smear Holroyd as an embittered ex-soldier motivated purely by vengeance, Holroyd's claims have also been vindicated. (2 ) Not only did Nairac execute the IRA terrorist John Francis Green, in Monahan, during the ...

6. The Enemy Within (Whitehall) [Lobster #27 (Jun 1994)]
... November 1993 the government published its Intelligence Services (Amendment) Bill. (2 ) By coincidence, no doubt, the 23 November was also the day chosen to show to the media the large, nicely packaged, photogenic collection of guns and explosives found on board a Polish ship in Cleveland. And these were arms not bound for the IRA, but for the Protestant, Ulster Defence Association. And it had all apparently been nipped in the bud by co-operation between MI5, MI6 and the Polish intelligence service. Noses began to twitch all over Europe (but not in the British media which reported it all, straight-faced, as requested). It was ...

... Twilight Zone of the Troubles'. His books provide a stark account of the conditions under which detectives then had to live and work, not least of which was knowledge of the killing, both on and off duty, of over 300 of their colleagues. One of the most controversial cases Simpson investigated was the dramatic kidnapping by the Provisional IRA of 45 year-old Thomas Niedermayer, a German national, who was the Managing Director of the Grundig electronics factory on the outskirts of Belfast. He had been awarded the OBE and was an honorary West German Consul to Northern Ireland. During the late evening of 27 December 1973 two men, who claimed to have collided with his ...

8. Rebel, rebel [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... of the Irish Sea, and this is shown in the wealth of footnotes that document his research. Equally I couldn't detect much in the way of bias (that is upfront partisanship, although such reliance and focus on governments and their actions produces its own bias, but that's a different argument). McMahon is as scathing about the pointless IRA actions in the 1930s and 1940s as he is about the British government's (and many of its intelligence operatives') apparent inability to work outside a very racist and colonialist mindset when dealing with the Irish' problem. He also gets inside de Valera's almost cynical use of the republican threat which enabled him to wring concessions out of the ...

... up till then, working only abroad. The UK was MI5's bureaucratic territory'. Maurice Oldfield, MI6 head at the time, is said to have opposed the move. (Verrier, 1983 p 302) Once in Northern Ireland, MI6 began doing what MI6 does. It recruited agents, tried to create a political alternative to the IRA - the Social Democratic and Labour Party (and, perhaps, the Alliance Party) (Verrier, ibid p 286) - and began trying to talk to the IRA. MI5, which began operating in Northern Ireland with the advent of the IRA bombing campaign on mainland Britain, saw MI6 not as an ally but as an opponent ...

Since 1945 MI5 has had three main domestic targets: Soviet bloc espionage, the British Left and the IRA. With the Soviet target gone, and the British Left of no consequence for the forseeable future, all that remains of the old agenda is the IRA. As MI5 Director-General Rimington acknowledged in the agency's glossy brochure put out last year, about half of MI5's budget is currently devoted to the IRA. So if permanent peace ...
