... the unions; the unions control the Labour Party; therefore the Soviets control the Labour Party.1 This MI5 theory led the anti-communist right to counter-organise and the author gives us a pretty detailed account of this in 1974-6 : the rise of the anti-subversion lobby (he mentions Brian Crozier's ISC but not IRD); the so-called private armies, GB75 and Unison; the surveillance and bugging of many on the left; the smear campaigns 1 The author does not mention the Soviet money.

' 2 0 After the closure of the Information Research Department (IRD), Shield worked to provide briefings on the alleged Communist threat for the leadership of the Tory Party. Crozier also stepped into the gap caused by the closure of IRD with a group that included ex-SIS officer Nicholas Elliot and US General Vernon Walters that he described as a 'Private Sector Operational Intelligence agency', called the 6I ...

... '. As Ogilvie noted, it was evident from Orwell's recent writings (this was before Animal Farm was published) 'that he does not hold with the Communist Party nor they with him'. Post-war, of course, Orwell became involved with the secret state. Smith quite correctly condemns Orwell's relationship with the Information Research Department (IRD) and his handing over of a list of Party members, sympathisers and fellow travellers as a 'gross miscalculation'. He is, however, less successful in explaining this miscalculation. Obviously, Orwell's anti-Stalinism was a crucial factor, but in the post-War period the nature of that anti-Stalinism changed. Whereas in ...

... concluded that the 'threat' of the Communist Party had declined; and switched resources to what Peter Wright sneeringly called the 'far and wide left' – the Trotskyist fragments. MI5's lack of interest in the 'Soviet threat' triggered the formation of the anti-subversion lobby which gathered round Brian Crozier in the early 1970s – CIA, MI6 and IRD personnel who were not persuaded of the decline of the 'Soviet threat'. (This was part of the wider debate about the reality of détente between NATO and the Soviet bloc.) Crozier and his chums certainly did not think MI5 was on the ball where the perceived menace from the Soviets and the left was concerned; and they ...

... -war economy would produce a return to the slump which that war economy had ended. The 'threat' to the US wasn't communism, or even socialism: it was economic nationalism. So economic nationalism was deemed to be 'communism' and thus worthy of attack. Decolonisation in the 1950s and 60 wasn't about communism (though the CIA and IRD could always be relied upon to fabricate a communist link if one was need): it was about nationalism. It is curious how this has just been forgotten. The Soviet 'threat' in the post-war years was minutely deconstructed in the 1960s and early 70s by the so-called 'revisionist historians' of the Cold War, ...
