21. If Truth be Told (Book Review) [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... , and into WW2, 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-war era.

22. Feedback [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 46) Winter 2003 Last| Contents| Next Issue 46 Feedback From Garrick Alder Re: John Newsinger's 'Orwell and the IRD in Lobster 38 The appearance since Lobster 45 of further details of Orwell's dealings with the IRD has reminded me how very interested I was by Mr Newsinger's admirable reappraisal of the Orwell/IRD incidents. 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, apparently unsolicited, a month later. Newsinger's suggestion that ...

... /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 ...

24. Demos [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... notorious lobbyist for British Gas (BG), McDonald's (trying to squeeze them into school dinners) and British Nuclear Fuels. He 'brokered the marriage' between De La Rue and GTech to create Camelot and CAN was part of his operation: GTech gave them £130,000. Tucker advised Thatcher on PR and had connections with the IRD. (46) CAN's other funder is BG. This chimes in with Greg Palast's work on lobbying in The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. He has Derek Draper and Roger Liddle boasting that they can put a BG chairman on a government task force and that they were hired to do so. Palast also writes about scandal-ridden GTech's connections ...

... found that only 19 per cent were in favour of entry and more than half rejected even the principle of negotiating. Ernest Wistrich, director of the European Movement, noted that in December 1970 only 18 per cent supported membership, whilst 70 per cent were opposed. (9) The government enlisted the assistance of the Information Research Department (IRD). This covert unit, established by the Labour Government in 1948, was financed from the Secret Intelligence Services budget, with close links to MI6. The government's campaign had three stages. The first involved the dissemination of information to the press and public; the second, from the announcement of the terms of entry until the end ...

... that by 1953 the various US information services- what we would now call psy-ops- had 93 (!) people working out of the London Embassy. Doing what? There are new accounts here of some of the major landmarks of British post-war decolonisation, Malaya and Cyprus; but, oddly, nothing on Kenya. The two chapters on IRD and the one on the covert support of the post-war European unity movement, contain both succinct and comprehensive syntheses of the extant material and a lot of striking new information. The most startling chapter is probably 15, 'The struggle to contain liberation', on the work by British diplomats and intelligence personnel to prevent the United States launching a ...

27. Spooks and the House of Commons [Lobster #42 (Winter 2001/2)]
... in his piece about Parliament and spooks is the curious case of Ken Livingstone's parliamentary questions. In 1987/8, fed by Colin Wallace and Fred Holroyd via Livingstone's then (unpaid) researcher Neil Grant, new (1987) MP Ken Livingstone put down hundreds of written questions in the House of Commons about the war in Northern Ireland, IRD, and the cases of Holroyd and Wallace. In Lobster this was discussed in issue 16. But I also wrote about this is the now defunct magazine Cut (August 1988) and made the following comment: 'Livingstone appears to have hidden allies within the bureaucracy of the House of Commons. He has had astonishing luck in the lotteries ...

28. Cold War stories 2 [Lobster #42 (Winter 2001/2)]
... with a paper on British intellectuals in the context of CIA efforts to influence opinion in Europe. The influence of covert operations by the Americans seems to have been mixed at best, since the general British response was that they did not need the Americans to fight communism. For instance, in the labour movement the links between the TUC and IRD ensured a limited impact for any American contribution. Amongst the intellectuals there was also a reluctance to support American-backed schemes, with the lacklustre response of Trevor-Roper, Ayer, and Russell towards the Congress for Cultural Freedom being a case in point. (Russell may have been a 'figurehead' as Honorary Chairman of the CCF but he eventually resigned ...

... Files TV programme you have been watching themes first invented by Pandolphi and his crew. Which is an oblique way into this: the security agencies, the intelligence agencies, are a part of political reality; and maybe a big part- certainly a bigger part than orthodox historians and political scientists would have us believe. Denounced by a former IRD head I'm here because I have been publishing a little magazine called Lobster for 17 years, part of whose content has been information about, and critical commentaries on, the activities of the British and American- mostly British- security agencies. To intelligence professionals, no doubt, the little I have managed to learn and publish is laughable ...

... that Britain could 'punch above her weight', due to the combination of the possession of the atomic bomb, with a group of wily Athenians back home running MI6, was tested to destruction. In his final chapter, 'The New Agenda', dealing with MI6's future, Dorril drops the minor bombshell that the old black propaganda functions of IRD are up-and-running again with MI6. He maintains that a former MI6 officer (Tomlinson?) has alleged that 'the bread-and-butter work' of the service's psychological warfare I/Ops section is in 'massaging public opinion into accepting controversial foreign policy decis ions'. This includes the 'plethora of media stories about Saddam Hussein's chemical and biological weapons capability' ...
