91. At Her Majesty's Secret Service, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... staffs of British commissioners, making George Thomson's private office in Strasbourg a useful source of information about the community.' (p. 143 but unsourced) But it's all whiter than white. He describes Maurice Oldfield gathering his staff together in the canteen to tell them that though SIS had been running Kenneth Littlejohn in the Irish Republic against the IRA, he had not been given a licence to rob banks, as he had claimed (p. 146) Yet Captain Fred Holroyd, of the Special Military Intelligence Unit in Northern Ireland, told us that the SIS man there in his day, Craig Smellie, asked him a year later if he wanted to rob some banks. ...

... . (The Golden Road to Samarkand, Anarchist Review No 6, 1982) At the same time as Holroyd's exposes there was the strange affair of the apparent discovery of Nairac's skeleton, reported by the British media, which paid little attention to the later news that it was in fact identified as Eugene Simmons, thought to have been an IRA informer, who disappeared on New Year's Day 1981. (Sunday News 20th May 1984) SD The Brotherhood of Eternal Love Stuart Tendler and David May (Granada, London 1984) Frank Zappa always said the CIA were behind the psychedelic revolution. Maybe not, but there are some interesting characters and international crooks like Robert Vesco behind the ...

... . For the Red Scare-- at whose core was the link to Moscow-- has been a key feature in the political armoury of the anti-Labour alliance between the Tory Party and the state. Secondly, the end of the CP in Britain would have been bad news to MI5 in the Whitehall budget struggle. Nowadays they've got the IRA to frighten the politicians with. In the late 50s, if the CPGB had folded, who would they have had as a credible threat? MI5 needed the Communist Party and 'the threat' created by the Moscow link, just as today it needs the IRA, the Welsh and Scots Nats and the Animal Liberation Front. (7 ...

... couldn't make it. So that was the end of it. Except that the heightened feelings of that year (the Gibraltar shootings followed by killings at two funerals, 'Death on the Rock', Lisburn, Ballygawley and other bombs) had led, only a month previously, to Mrs Thatcher appealing to the British media to withhold publicity from IRA sympathisers. A spokesman for the IBA said, 'The fact that After Dark is a live programme means there is no editorial control over remarks Mr Adams may make' and I was subsequently told our (unmade) programme was the straw which broke Downing Street's back. I cannot confirm this, but the timing is eloquent: our programme ...

95. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... of Counter-Terrorism. It is hard not to draw the conclusion that someone somewhere wanted MPs and the public to be terrified of the Islamist threat as new changes were about to be announced. The authorities (in fact, the 'leakers') were also keen to spin that the terrorists (bar the use of video) were analogous to the IRA (again, in order to get the Iraq insurgents to be seen as enemies of the people on terms the people would understand). The real conclusion, which no one in government dare make, should have been that the war was being brought home. Definitions of the terror threat The bottom line here is the actual definition of ...

96. Appendix 1: ISC, FWF, IRD [Lobster #11 (Apr 1986)]
... I believe, however, that the government discovered that IRD was, in fact, being used against themselves. See note 5 in main text. The revived fronts were Africa Features- in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and Zambia- and World Feature Services Guardian 27 January 1978 IRD set up a 'counter subversion unit' to deal with the IRA. It published a manual on the IRA distributed to journalists and others, including ISC's Iain Hamilton. (Guardian 27 January 1978) Sections of the manual appeared in Barzilay (1973) (Time Out 14 October 1977). In volume 1 of the book there is a picture of Colin Wallace posing in front of a pile of ...

... going on. There was a major outbreak of leaks- ie of official secrets- to the press in the early 1990s when the Special Branch was trying to resist MI5's take-over of the anti-terrorism franchise. MI5 won. Part of the reason for MI5's hatred of David Shayler is his revelation of just how incompetent MI5 were in dealing with the IRA in the UK having won that franchise. Currently there is a major struggle going on between the RUC Special Branch and the Army, with the RUC leaking to the Sunday Times the details of the campaign of assassinations in Northern Ireland by the Army's Force Research Unit, the FRU. A barrow-load of official secrets have been exposed in this ...

... the past year or so. The first was in the memoir of Field Marshall (Lord) Michael Carver in which, though not naming MRF, Carver acknowledged the existence of 'surveillance operations by soldiers in plain clothes...initiated by Frank Kitson when he commanded the brigade in Belfast, some of them exploiting ex-members or supporters of the IRA, of which I was aware, and for which I had obtained Ministerial approval.' (Out of Step, Memoirs of a Field Marshall, Michael Carver, Hutchinson London 1989 p. 429) 'Ministerial approval'? Why is Carver keen to tell us this? The second was 'West's', and the third is in Michael ...

99. Parapolitical bits and pieces [Lobster #7 (Feb 1985)]
... assumes- as most people who bother to check the bombing story do- that the Provos didn't do it, this new bit of information makes it rather more likely that the bombings were the work of the British state, jogging the arm of the legislature. A similar move had been made when the Irish Republic was considering legislation against the IRA. An hour or so before the crucial vote in the Irish parliament a couple of car-bombs went off in Dublin. Although the evidence is nothing like conclusive, it seems probable that the bombs were the work of the British intelligence/ military. (See The Kitson Experiment by Roger Faligot, London 1983, p101/2). ...

', just a dumb question?* The McGurk's bar massacre In December 1971 a bomb exploded at McGurk's bar in Belfast, killing 15 Catholics. The response of the Army and police was to blame the IRA for an 'own goal' the accidental detonation of an IRA bomb intended for somewhere else.
