21. Journals [Lobster #15 (Feb 1988)]
... the US from PO Box 597004, Department 608, San Francisco, CA 94164-9004. Coming In From The Cold: British Propaganda and Red Army Defectors 1945-52 Wesley K. Wark in International History Review February 1987 This is an interesting addition to what little information we have on the early years of the Information Research Department (IRD) and the uses to which IRD put Soviet defectors. It also contains a couple of names to add to the list of known IRD people. Wark states flatly that IRD's work fell between 'white' and 'black' propaganda - which I don't believe. One former British diplomat to whom I spoke about IRD (and who wouldn't thank ...

... -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, ...

Tom Spencer MEP, RIP About a month before the political demise of the Conservative MEP and former leader of the Conservative group of MEPs, Tom Spencer, I was asked by a researcher at the European Parliament what I knew about him.

... party, and the second most important part of the NATO alliance, is in the hands of someone who has spent the post-war years going to and from Moscow as an East-West trader! The rise of the left in the Labour Party and trade union movement, symbolised by the ascent of Wilson, was being monitored by IRD and its satellites, the Economic League, IRIS, Common Cause - and by Brian Crozier, who raised the alarm in the 1970 collection he edited, We Will Bury You..(73) Working the same seam - presumably for different sponsors - was former Army officer and Conservative MP, Geoffrey Stewart-Smith.

... Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) – allegedly, says the author – began funding one of the Islamic groups in Pakistan to spread Islamic literature among the Soviet republics with large Islamic populations. (p . 225) And there were phoney radio stations, newspapers, pamphlets, faked printed material of every kind, with the Information Research Department (IRD), the propaganda/psy-ops unit which hovered between the Foreign Office and SIS, at the centre of it. 'Fake news' is nothing new: IRD generated mountains of it between 1945 and 1977. In IRD's last big operation, in Northern Ireland, the blizzard of 'fake news' stories it generated eventually produced the ...

Arbitrarily we can locate the beginning of this in 1969 when the Labour Government pruned the Foreign Office's covert propaganda arm, the Information Research Department (IRD).(4 ) IRD had grown from its origins in the 1940s to employ hundreds of people and spend nearly 1 million per year on anti-Soviet and anti-Communist propaganda.

On page 67, for example (the first page I tried to read) we are told of a 'merger' between the Information Research Department (IRD) and the Institute for the Study of Conflict (ISC). A 'merger'? Not as far as I knew. I looked up Bloch and Fitzgerald from whom I guessed this section had been lifted. Yes, there was the material on page 98.
