41. Spooks [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... of MI5's Soviet equivalents. MI5 left the CPGB running as a honey trap through which to view and contaminate the wider British left- rather a clever thing to do. Huh? The most startling story I have seen recently is the following. It appeared in the Sunday edition of the generally highly reliable Glasgow Herald. 'Undercover soldiers trapped in IRA' by Neil Mackay, Home Affairs Editor, Sunday Herald, 28 January 2001, began thus: 'At least 16 British Army officers, who are currently working undercover as spies within the ranks of the IRA, carried out a series of terrorist bombings and shootings to preserve their cover as leading Provos. The British government is thwarting all ...

42. Trimble (Book reviews) [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... loyalist paramilitaries' deep distrust of the Unionist establishment. Nevertheless it is clear that at this time Trimble was once again contemplating civil war, the repartition of the North and a 'Beirut style' situation. What led to his transformation into peacemaker? The key, one suspects, is the realisation by the end of the 1980s that the Provisional IRA had been effectively contained by the security forces and were coming under increa-ingly effective pressure from the loyalist paramilitaries. These two factors led to the Provisionals' readiness to abandon the armed struggle on the right terms, and seem to have convinced Trimble that a new game was underway. One should not underestimate the radical nature of his transformation. ...

(5) General Partin is a former U.S. Army explosives expert and he showed that a fertilizer bomb of the kind made by McVeigh could not do the damage attributed to it. (6) (C.f. the much smaller damage done by the IRA bombs in the Ciy of London.) And if these surmises are true it means what? Someone was running McVeigh- or had a line into him- and augmented McVeigh's bomb? Is that what they are thinking? Who are the questioners? On the publication of its annual report, the activities of the Intelligence and Security Committee ...

... 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 ...

... ) Winter 2000/1 Last| Contents| Next Issue 40 Ten Thirty Three: The Inside Story of Britain's Secret Killing Machine in Northern Ireland Nicholas Davies Mainstream Publishing, Edinburgh, 1999, £14.99 John Newsinger It is by now clear to everyone, except the hard-line Unionists hankering after the restoration of a Protestant Ascendancy, that the Provisional IRA was defeated in its war against the British. Their defeat was certainly not total, so that no return to 'the good old days' of Stormont was possible and they have received significant concessions, but nevertheless it is still a defeat. The Provisional republicans have not only given up their military campaign to bring about a united Ireland but ...

Julius Hogben I've got fucking A levels in fucking whacking fucking people....Your fucking ceasefire's going....I'll be in touch with you fucking soon....You watch your fucking car. On 9 February 1996 the IRA ended its cease fire by bombing Canary Wharf. In the warning period minutes before the explosion, Mickey Steele's Essex phone rang. It was RUC Special Branch in Belfast, posing as IRA drug runners. They'd begun ringing, with threats, the day before. They pointedly told him CW had just blown, minutes after it happened. ...

47. Bombing your way to the negotiating table? [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... the first time of an accurate figure for the cost of a major bomb in London. Incredibly, they released that information. The figure was half a billion pounds. The government then made the point that the cost of this single incident equalled the cost of all property damage caused by terrorists in NI over the previous 30 years. The IRA now realised that with just a couple more bombs they could bankrupt Pool Re and in effect bankrupt the government. So also did the government, and at that stage the serious talking began and a cease fire was achieved. When the talks faltered, the cease fire was broken with the bomb at Canary Wharf in Docklands. This time ...

48. Nothern Ireland redux [Lobster #38 (Winter 1999)]
... writes: 'To republicans and nationalists it was clear evidence of collusion between members of the security forces and the loyalist paramilitaries' (emphasis added). Not so: it was clear evidence to anyone. Taylor describes how, using state intelligence, the UDA's 'targeting' of the Nationalist community improved: fewer Catholics were murdered at random, more IRA members. Another way of describing these events would be this: the British Army was running the UDA's assassins against the IRA- and successfully, too. In effect, in the late 1980s the British state decided that while they could not kill the IRA openly (the late Alan Clark MP's solution: let the SAS loose), ...

... put together with the first 244 pages covering the contemporary Troubles, but tacked onto the end another hundred odd pages providing a Cook's tour of Irish revolutions and revolutionaries. This extended appendix is of little value. The book also contains some clumsy factual errors: for example, the bombing of McGurk's Bar was not, as Geraghty claims, 'an IRA own goal'; and the Civil Rights movement was certainly not 'a classic of Republican political deception'. Nevertheless there is much of interest in the main body of the text. Geraghty's account of the early years of the war provides further reinforcement for what has become the accepted view: the Army's counter-insurgency methods were completely inappropriate, and ...

50. The Committee (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... Protestant community that they were going to be sold down the river. This realisation, it is claimed, transformed the hitherto fragmented Protestant political and paramilitary community into a cohesive, province-wide, secret organisation, the Ulster Central Coordinating Committee. This worked with an 'Inner Force' which had formed inside the RUC. The Inner Force supplied intelligence on IRA members and sympathisers to 'the Committee', who directed assassins to chosen targets with protection provided by the 'Inner Force'. This book is about that documentary, its thesis, and the aftermath. On the central allegations about 'the Committee' and the 'Inner Force' the author has not really made his case. When Channel Four transmitted ...
