... 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 ...

103. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... -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 ...

... to pretend to think this because of his party's thinking? Or is asking of a modern politician, 'Does he really think this? ', 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.

... 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 ...

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 ...

... Johnson and former Labour Home Secretary Merlyn Rees. Quite why Rees should be in this company in Jerusalem is something of a puzzle. Two possible explanations come to mind. One, he had been much involved in the Ulster troubles as Northern Ireland Secretary. Then as Home Secretary, and responsibility for MI5, he had to deal with the IRA mainland bombing campaign. Two, he had a long record of seeking to bring Nazi war criminals to justice and was highly regarded in the Jewish community strongly represented in his Leeds constituency in consequence.
