... 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 ...

12. Terror Within, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... but the gold miners' struggle in Ballarat in Australia, while very interesting and while some of the participants were former Chartists, was not a struggle for a British republic. The book also suffers from strange lacunae in its coverage. Bloom has much to say about Irish nationalist violence in England in the 19th century, but totally ignores the IRA bombing campaigns in the 1950s and then from the 1970s until the 1990s (apart from the attempt to blow up Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet at Brighton in 1984) even though those would presumably be sufficiently 'terroristic' to qualify for inclusion. (And if the problem is that they are conducted by Irish nationalists then why include the 19th ...

13. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... in The Sunday Independent have a more credible position. I even started to think that David Aaronovitch has his good points despite everything I said when I was an undergraduate and he was a student union bureaucrat in a right-wing Communist Party. I know most of these Irish writers. With principle and integrity, all have at some time rightly denounced IRA terrorism and the use of Republican rhetoric by the gangster capitalists of Fianna Fail. In particular, they have shown how the relentless reference to a 'United Ireland' has driven Loyalist workers in Northern Ireland to support political reactionaries like Ian Paisley. I also still think that a simplistic, immediate withdrawal from Iraq would cause a horrendous sectarian blood-bath ...

14. MI5 and the threat from the left in the 1970s [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... .' Burns adds: `Together with a corresponding increase in the popularity of British fascists and quasi-fascist organisations, the paper predicts an increase of "enemy propaganda" by the "subversive" left targeting universities, the civil service, and the armed forces. This would be followed by incidents of sabotage "complicated by a revival of the IRA."' According to Burns, the paper presented a scenario 'in which a Labour government, acceding to trade union and other militant demands, radicalised its policies against the private sector and the UK's NATO commitments.' Burns commented that, The paper] appears to give some credibility to claims made by Mr Wilson, following his resignation ...

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. ...

... 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 ...

... now deployed in the Province, is not available.'( [11]) Fast forward to 2006 and researchers in the national archives have discovered a 1974 army briefing paper titled 'Army Plain Clothes Patrols in Northern Ireland'. The briefing states: 'Plainclothes teams, initially joint RUC/army patrols, have operated in Northern Ireland since the IRA bombing campaign in Easter 1971. Later in 1971 the teams were reformed and expanded as Military Reaction Forces (MRFs) without RUC participation. In 1972 the operations of the MRF were brought under more centralised control and a higher standard of training achieved( [12] )by establishing a Special Reconnaissance Unit (SRU) of 130 with ...

... all reworked with some new material. For British readers there is new information on William Sargant, author of the 1957 landmark book, Battle for the Mind. Streatfield shows that Sargant was working for MI5 and/or MI6- something I had assumed but had never tried to check. There is a chapter on the British Army's torture of IRA suspects in 1971. Streatfield shows us that these programmes involved the UK as junior partners to the US; and that by 1970 most of the experiments with drugs and gizmos had apparently ended. The NATO countries' scientists had abandoned their search for 'mind control' and had discovered that to break down most people all you need is stress ...

... Arab national liberation see the trajectory of Algeria reproduced wherever there are disadvantaged and angry Muslim communities. The rest of us need only mug up on Pontecorvo's drama-documentary, The Battle of Algiers, to get a feel for what we may be in for. From threat to movement? Some are now saying the unsayable: that, as with the IRA, talks will eventually be required with Al-Qaeda. That would be a sign of failure. My view is that talks should long ago have started with the non-terrorist elements in Political Islam about support for regional reform and the withdrawal of Western forces. Now, we reap what we have sown. If we fail to talk to moderate Political ...

20. 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 phoney IRA ...
