21. The view from the bridge [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... 1970s yet it didn't mention – or, better, show – the discussions about a coup carried in The Times. It talked about a smear campaign but didn't refer to the various forgeries which were going around: Ted Short's phoney bank account and all the forged leaflets and letters trying to link Wilson and others to the Communist Party and the IRA. And here is the core of my complaint: it wasn't just a plot against Wilson; it was a plot against the Labour and Liberal parties and the Heath wing of the Tories. And it wasn't just MI5 doing it, either.( [1]) It did contain two significant new pieces of information. The first ...

... the Workers Party and the Progressive Unionist Party in Northern Ireland Roger Cottrell Before he went on the run, in the wake of Ernie Elliot's murder in 1972, former British soldier and UDA member David Fogel gave an interview to the London Times.(1) In it he denounced sectarianism and said that he hoped that one day 'the Official IRA and the UDA would work together, because both organisations have the working people at heart' (Boulton, 1974; 182-183). Sadly, for all that Glen Barr's founding of the New Ulster Political Research Group in November 1974 (in the aftermath of the UWC Strike) represented a genuine attempt to find a working class alternative to ...

23. The view from the bridge [Lobster #50 (Winter 2005/6)]
... years ago such a list, had it come my way, would have been a major item. These days it doesn't interest me greatly. Oh, I put it on a disk and maybe it will be useful one day; and I wonder who compiled it and why. But before these MI6 lists, Cryp-tome published a list of IRA members which included Clare Short MP. Which doesn't exactly inspire confidence, does it?( [1]) Even if I knew the list was genuine – though how would I know? – does it matter that we have a list of MI6 names attached to countries? In 1985 Steve Dorril's working out which diplomats were MI6 officers ...

... did not require a passport from the "businessmen".' UBS was heavily fined by the Swiss banking authorities and, The Guardian reported several years ago, Uri David was heavily fined himself, before being made a British citizen soon after New Labour was elected in 1997. Kochan ranges widely from the Bank of New York scandals to the IRA in courageously pursuing his theme that laundered money corrupts the wider economy. He concludes: "Money laundering by criminal or terrorist groups has far-reaching implications for the world's security.' As in his earlier BCCI book, Kochan shows a subtle understanding of the role of British bank regulators in dealing with these corrupt practices. The evidence to date ...

25. PR, espionage and language [Lobster #50 (Winter 2005/6)]
... to set itself up as an 'alternative' family. This can conflict with, or usurp, the actual family and could mean that excellent applicants from much needed specific associations are less inclined to put themselves forward. In addition, the use of the word risks linkage with other spook employers: a courageous former British agent who worked inside the IRA has warned that he was 'dumped' by the security forces. 'When you are no longer of use, they leave you high and dry with no regard for your family, your children or you.'( [21]) There, too, was that old chestnut: 'SIS insists it is not dominated by a macho culture ...

26. UDA: Inside the heart of Loyalist terror [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... of Northern Ireland – had exploited the legitimate fears of the Loyalist working class to try and block any kind of 'normal' democratic socialist politics, then developing elsewhere in the UK. The authors' second premise is linked to the above: namely, that a distinction must be drawn between the mass-based UDA that came together, in response to IRA terrorism in the 1970s, and the small but nonetheless deadly organisation of Hitler-besotted, drug-dealing fascists that is now parasitic on the community from which it was derived – bizarrely fκted and given public money by the government. Inevitably, given the book's vast research area, there is little attention given to how the Civil Rights movement first emerged from ...

27. Spies, Lies and Whistleblowers [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... Special Branches, who are presented as reliable and sensible. The rest are incompetent – mind-bogglingly incompetent at times – self-serving, venal, or all three. This happens – this is allowed to happen – because there is virtually no political control over the security organisations: when they fuck-up nothing happens to them. MI5 botch a surveillance of an IRA operation and £300 million's worth of damage is done to the City of London; and nothing happens, no heads roll. MI6 gets involved in trying to use Muslim fundamentalists to assassinate Colonel Gadaffi; and nothing happens; nothing, that is, other than then Foreign Secretary Robin Cook standing up and reading a brief written for him ...

... do not have a substantive support base overseas; nor have they received much in the way of academic attention. They are not fκted by Dublin, Washington or London. Their self perception is that of a community that has systematically lost out, while Republicans hijack the Good Friday Agreement to their own ends. Nor, in contrast to the IRA, have Loyalists duped a section of the left into seeing them as freedom fighters. Historically, even bourgeois and mainstream unionists have been quite inept at handling the media and public relations. This has been amplified by the subsequent fragmentation of loyalism that Crawford's book, in part, addresses, and by the deepening sense of disempower-ment and alienation ...

29. A Very British Jihad (Book Review) [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... the loyalist gangs. By the mid-1980s almost everything else, including some fairly ad hoc joint Army-loyalist operations going back to the mid 1970s – where Fred Holroyd came in – had been tried without destroying the Provos. Larkin believes that a decision was made by the British state in the mid-1980s to train, arm and direct loyalist para-militaries against the IRA. The one piece missing from his analysis is evidence of the political dimension. Did the Conservative government approve of this? Did they know of this? Larkin presumes so but cannot demonstrate it. Larkin lacks a senior British Army, intelligence officer or civil servant, let alone a cabinet minister, willing to admit this was the policy ...

30. Feedback [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... the most detailed and thorough account of the George Davis frame-up that ever saw the light of day. In fact on the day of UPAL 9's publication (28 August 1975) it helped the Davis Campaign to capture the tabloid front page lead (2 )despite such august opposition as the previous evening's bombing of the Caterham Arms pub by the IRA. The assertion of Lobster and others that the IRA's 'big bombs' inevitably and rightly pushed everything else into an abyss doesn't always configure. It occurs to me that had the IRA and not the Davis Campaign (with UPAL still waiting to bat) sabotaged the 1975 Headingly Test Cricket wicket (19 August 1975) it would have still ...
