... at all. It wasn't even the future. The novel T here have been persistent rumours that Anthony Burgess's novel (published by Heinemann, London, in May 1962) was in some way related to espionage. These rumours were given the proverbial 'shot in the arm' with the 2002 publication of Roger Lewis's scurrilous biography, entitled simply Anthony Burgess (published by Faber and Faber) .2 Lewis engages in much speculation but the most substantial material concerns what Lewis was told when he made contact with an intelligence officer:' "You realise,"said the spook, as we sat on a bench in Berkeley Square, opposite Maggs Bros. Ltd, by appointment to Her ...

... still a subject of considerable controversy. Was Klugmann responsible for the British decision to end support for the royalist Chetnik resistance and throw their support behind Tito's Partisans? Persuading Churchill's government to help install the Communists in power in Yugoslavia would be one of the greatest achievements of the Cambridge spies, arguably putting the achievements of the likes of Philby, Burgess, Maclean, Blunt and Cairncross in the shade. Certainly, he and others highlighted intelligence that showed the Partisans in the best light and 'either suppressed other intelligence more sympathetic to the Chetniks or produced intelligence detrimental to their cause'. Klugmann actually admitted all this in his 1945 meeting with Bob Stewart with MI5 listening in. However this ...

... to get a pension when he retired. Why? Well: ultimately von Ustinov was an urbane, highly cultured pragmatist who would have wanted to do a deal with the USSR over Germany. Once the US seized control of the diplomatic initiative in Europe in 1948-1949, proclaiming the existence of a Cold War, and especially after the decamping of Burgess and McLean in 1951, expansive liberal types like Klop were not in vogue. A strong case can be made for him being the most competent intelligence officer the British had working for them 1935-1950. At first glance it might appear that John Freeman, like Ustinov, was a casualty of the Cold War. He too was cultured, ...

... London, Grafton, 1986 p. 48). At the end of 1940 the lease that Lord Rothschild had on a three-story maisonette in Bentinck Street in London expired: Blunt moved in with Tessa Mayor (then Lord Rothschild's secretary in MI5, later his wife), Patrician Rawdon-Smith (who later married a friend of Blunt's) and Guy Burgess. They were soon joined by Jack Hewitt, a sailor boyfriend of Burgess, who very quickly switched his allegiance to Blunt. Hewitt told John Costello that during the time at the flat Blunt had only one visitor come to stay with him: Peter Montgomery. (See Costello's Mask of Treachery New York, William Morrow, 1988, ...

... not regard poetry as particularly threatening and only really noticed poets when they engaged in more conventional activism! Even Auden's visit to Republican Spain seems to have gone unnoticed by MI5, although as Smith notes there might well be an SIS file. Interest in Auden did, however, explode into life in June 1951 at the time of the Guy Burgess defection. One of the last things Burgess did before disappearing was try to contact Auden, something that excited considerable activity on the part of MI5. Smith has a very interesting discussion of another member of the Auden Circle, Stephen Spender, who attracted a lot more attention. He examines his post-war involvement with the Congress for Cultural Freedom ...

There is nothing like a Dame Pressure from the royal household, Mohamed Al Fayed and Number 10 have been cited as reasons behind the decision of the Royal Coroner, Michael Burgess, not to hear the inquests into the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed. Following a flurry of speculation, the former President of the High Court Family Division, Dame Elisabeth Butler-Sloss, was duly appointed as Deputy Coroner of the Queen's Household for the purpose of hearing the inquests. According to the Judicial Communications Office, Dame ...

Coroner for Surrey, confirmed that inquests on Diana and Dodi would open on 6 January 2004: Diana's inquest was to be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in the morning, with Burgess acting as the Coroner of The Queen's Household; Dodi's would be held that afternoon at Reigate with Burgess acting as H.M. ...

... H. A. R. 'Kim' Philby, that perfect spy, was quite possibly within a few months of becoming head of MI6, when the British diplomat and Soviet spy Donald Maclean a rising star in his own right was fingered by the U. S. government's code breakers. Maclean and his too loyal friend Guy Burgess took the ferry to Calais, thence the train to Moscow, leaving Philby implicated, but not convicted, and intelligence services all over the Western world looking over their shoulders at their own images in the washroom mirror. The question raised by Helms in A Look Over My Shoulder is: was Colby America's more successful Philby? In other ...

One 'sighting' was its condemnation of a BBC dramatisation of the early lives of Messrs. Blunt, Burgess, McLean and Philby: the dramatist was blamed for a sensitivity by-pass SIS itself had created.( [12]) Another was in the Careers Section of London's Evening Standard when a fiction writer explained SIS's recruitment process from ten years ago.( [13]) The article was truthful and measured, which is to say it ...
