101. Punk monetarism [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... had become a threat, as newspapers and the airwaves filled with doom-laden talk of the millions of jobs about to be destroyed by what was then called the 'silicon chip'. And Alec Guinness kept the nation spellbound with the television version of John le Carré's 1974 novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. It depicted the tempting of senior UK espionage moguls with a one-off, spectacular solution to Secret Britain's ills, a Soviet super-spy who would get us back in with the Americans and restore our standing in the world. In the real world, this sort of search for a painless way to get the Great back into Britain had been the biggest casualty of the ...

102. Rebel, rebel [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... 'back door' – Ireland, and the leakage of useful information. Fortunately, a combination of stringent British censorship, controls on shipping and intelligence co-operation saw the few German agents that landed there eventually rounded up; and it was established that the German legation was more keen to keep itself operational in a neutral country than undertake much espionage and intelligence gathering. Two agents who failed to make it to Ireland were Sean Russell and Frank Ryan, senior IRA men who sailed from Germany on a mission; but that was aborted when Russell died on board the U-boat, and it had to turn back because Ryan hadn't been given the details of the mission! To ...

... hard-back edition of Gary Murray's Enemies of the State refers to 'Cavendish, Anthony, mysterious death of'. Presumably it meant to say 'Cavendish, Anthony, and mysterious death of Sir Maurice Oldfield'. Cavendish further notes that he is not a Bulgarian -- as I reported that Rupert Allason has it in his Faber Book of Espionage (reviewed Lobster 26 ). This arose because, pestered by Allason to say where he was born (in Switzerland, of British parents) Cavendish, as a joke, told Allason he was born in Bulgaria. Finally, let me add that Cavendish is mentioned in Alan Clark's Diaries (paperback edition, Phoenix, London, 1994 ...

... late E.P . Thompson pointed out (Guardia n, 2 March, 1985), 'I also knew Harry Newton, on and off, for thirty years, in the adult education and other movements. He was an unlikely agent. But then, as a historian of such things, who has looked into what traces of such espionage as survive in the public records, when they are opened after 100 or 75 years, I know that agents are always unlikely persons. Harry was a man who received kindness from many people and, if he was suborned or twisted into this role, he must have suffered agonies of remorse. I despise the authors of that crooked ...

... ) In Porter's interpretative sweep humanity appears almost completely at the mercy of uncontrollable economic forces. If Marx had believed this would he have bothered to co-author the Communist Manifesto or establish the First International? Notes See Bernard Porter, The Origins of the Vigilant State (London, 1987) and Plots and Paranoia: A History of Political Espionage in Britain 1790-1988 (London, 1989). Thus Kenneth O. Morgan's study, The People's Peace 1945-1990 (Oxford, 1992), in many ways a fine book, barely refers to the plots against the Wilson Governments. Morgan discusses the Mountbatten incident but only on the basis of Cecil King's diaries. There ...

... expert, Sefton Delmer, was a Soviet agent. In the mid-1950s Delmer was expelled from Egypt for being an SIS agent. President Abdel-Nasser, who played footsie with both the Americans and the Soviets, would have hardly have booted out a Soviet agent and risked jeopardizing Egyptian-Soviet relations. He also asserts that 'the espionage reporters of all the great papers all now work hand in glove with the Security Service'.(p . 155) Names please, Mr West? As to West's contention that Hollis was a traitor, and the publisher's blurb that Hollis 'for nine years was a communist spy', there is only one conclusion: not proven. ...

... years MI5 has come out on top, replacing the Soviet 'threat' with the terrorist 'threat', and actually expanding its personnel, while MI6 and GCHQ are tightening (pretty generous) belts. Let's hope the IRA, the animals rights movement, Green Anarchist and the anti-roads campaigners are suitably flattered to be the equivalent of the espionage services of a super-power! For all the welcome candour of some of his interviewees, there are still corns that Urban won't tread on. The whole 'Wilson plots' revelations of 1986-89, thousands of column inches, the major cause of our present increased understanding of the British spooks, is evaded with a brief reference ...

... any politicians involved. Nevertheless, this example strongly suggested that poor transliteration may have been a factor in building a ridiculously inaccurate account of my activities. No wonder that Mitrokhin himself had been so disappointed with the eventual publication. He had wanted his life's work to be an unchallengeable history of Soviet misdeeds, not a compendium of inaccurate tales of espionage. ' (p . 314) Symonds' account ends with this devastating final paragraph. 'In retrospect, nobody emerges from the Mitrokhin affair with much credit. The BBC and The Times competed against each other to see who could renege on their agreements first; MI5 tried every slippery trick to conceal Dame Stella's stunning incompetence; Alpass tried ...

... political underground since the war and the book is thus dotted with interesting fragments about the area where the state, the intelligence services and political activity overlap. There are little bits of new information or perspectives, for example, on Will Owen, the Labour MP who was ripping-off the Czechs and got done (but acquitted) for espionage; the attempting framing of Peter Hain; agent provocateurs in the labour movement; the 'Angry Brigade'; Searchlight magazine, and the role of state agents here, there and everywhere. (I know nothing about Spanish history and just skipped those sections.) The book as whole is an interesting account of the post-war British ...

... be either scaled down, or become more open and accountable. Such concerns have been privately expressed by governments and MEPs since the Cold War, but surveillance has continued to expand. US intelligence activity in Britain has enjoyed a steady growth throughout the past two decades. The principal motivation for this rush of development is the US interest in commercial espionage. In the Fifties, during the development of the 'special relationship' between America and Britain, one US institution was singled out for special attention. The NSA, the world's biggest and most powerful signals intelligence organisation, received approval to set up a network of spy stations throughout Britain. Their role was to provide military, diplomatic and ...
