... The Book Guild, 2009, h/b , £16.99 Author Evans was a Times journalist in the 1960s and 1970s, for 17 years The Times' Home Affairs correspondent when it still was the voice of the 'British establish-ment'. Evans knew MI5 people and got material from them. He also got material from IRD (unidentified by Evans) but these IRD briefings were 'too right-wing' to be used. Then MI5 tried to recruit him as an informant and he declined the offer. By so doing he branded himself unreliable and MI5 began investigating him. Few of these events are dated and it is unclear to me in which decade some ...

22. The view from the bridge [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... no editorial names appeared in it – and the suspicion was that it was being used to run disinfo. This Mountbatten-Kincora story looks to me like just another one of the disinfo stories that were built around Kincora none of which (thus far) have ever amounted to anything, despite the possibility of considerable compensation for the victims. IRD reborn?On 17 October 2008 in 'Paedophiles unite with terrorists online', 'an investigation by The Times' claimed that examination of Jihadists' computers showed that some contained child pornography images.(7 ) This story included speculation either that there was something about being a Jihadist which leads to paedophilia or that Jihadists were using child porn pictures ...

... uk (Issue 55) Summer 2008 Last | Contents | Next Issue 55 Britain, America and Anti-Communist Propaganda 1945-53 The Information Research Department Andrew Defty Oxford and New York: Routledge, 2004, £23.99, p/b Thinking about this book, I wondered why people like me have been so interested in IRD for the last 30 years. There are two reasons, I think. The first is that way back in the 1970s, when information about the British secret state was virtually non-existent, some articles were published about IRD. They got onto the agenda when there was almost nothing else on it and so they loomed large. ...

24. The 1975 Referendum on Europe, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... had difficulty working together; they didn't produce a professional-looking campaign and were portrayed by the media as a group of oddballs. Meanwhile the 'pros', containing all the centrists who had been promoted by the media as the 'sensible' people, had tons of money and some covert help from the British secret state in the shape of IRD. The only bits of interest are an entertaining account by Alan Sked of his career as a eurosceptic and this snippet from former Conservative MP Richard Body: 'Carefully selected people were invited to luncheon and dinner .. .. .. .. to hear speakers give what they claimed to be confidential briefings "off the record". ...

... ' the UDC came to mind. But in the case of 'public diplomacy', while public does mean open, diplomacy doesn't mean diplomacy. 'Public diplomacy' is a recent term for a range of activities hitherto called propaganda, public relations, advertising and psy-ops. So while this book could have been been about the CIA, IRD, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its little UK cousin, the Westminster Foundation for Democracy, and all those American interventions in the Soviet bloc since the fall of the Berlin Wall, installing pro-American regimes with money and electioneering/PR techniques, of course it isn't. 'Public diplomacy' is basically a euphemism ...

... tells us what the book is going to do. Francis Stonor Saunders' account of the Congress for Cultural Freedom and the CIA (reviewed in Lobster 38 ) was titled 'Who Paid the Piper? ' and implied, rather than actually demonstrated, that the CIA was calling the tune. Over a much wider field than Saunders with chapters on IRD, the New Leader, labor diplomats (American labor attach s), the European Movement and the creation of Bilderberg, the Congress for Cultural Freedom and Encounter Wilford questions the conclusion of the musical metaphor. Some of this is familiar; some familiar but with new sources; some new. Some of it involves the CIA, and ...

27. The Rise of Political Lying [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... election campaign techniques and the availability of the money from Michael (now Lord) Levy merely speeded things up. In another sense it is just the political parties adopting the methods of the psy-ops people in the state. The intimate relationship between a Peter Mandelson and certain journalists is a facsimile of the relationship that the state's disinformation people IRD most notably had with journalists all the way through the Cold War. Oborne tells us that New Labour's mendacity amounts to a 'new epistemology', a kind of post-modernist relationship with the truth. It's a nice idea but it is far too generous to the people concerned. They just told a bunch of porkies which the media ...

... , for example the fall of Singapore, the British-American refusal to open a 'second front' in 1941-43 (to let the Germans and Soviets destroy each other) the (deliberate?) failure of the assault on Dieppe, civilian bombing by the RAF and so forth. After WW2 we get the CIA in Europe, IRD, and the Korean war (US biological warfare). From the 1950s we skip to the 1980s and Reagan-era disinformation about the Soviets (shooting the Pope etc); and finally we arrive at the two assaults on Iraq and a long list of countries which the US has attacked/invaded/subverted in the post- ...

Two things have struck me that seems to have escaped comment anywhere. Firstly, that the March 1949 meeting between Orwell and Kirwan (during the former's tubercular confinement in Gloucestershire) resulted in a list of potential recruits to IRD, and the so-called 'blacklist' was sent, ...

... b 8.99 An updated and expanded version of Defending the Realm: MI5 and the Shayler Affair which was reviewed in Lobster 38 , this account of MI5's adjustment to the post Cold War world is one of the best books on the UK's intelligence services, up there with Stephen Dorril's MI6 book, Paul Lashmar and James Oliver's book on IRD and Richard Aldrich's The Hidden Hand. Rereading it, I was struck by the following. Although we now know quite a lot about MI5's recent history, almost none of it has come from MI5 itself, despite the talk of openness and its Web site. A good deal of the key information has come from David Shayler who is ...
