31. Spooks and the EEC [Lobster #33 (Summer 1997)]
... the CIA in Western Europe (Zed Press, London 1978). The head of station appointed to 'intervene' in the Referendum campaign was Cord Meyer, who, in the early post-war years had been one of the leading lights in the United World Federalists, before joining the CIA. Meyer was head of station in London, 1975-76. IRD The Sunday Telegraph April 27 1997 carried an important piece about the IRD operation between 1970 and 1972 to put out propaganda in favour of British entry into the EEC. The piece lists a number of senior media figures, politicians and civil servants involved. Last| Contents| Next ...

... shipping cocaine to Britain'. The story refers to an 'alleged Iraqi plot to flood Britain and Europe with the drug'. And the source? 'Lawyers for a high-ranking Iraqi defector', former Iraqi ambassador to Venezuela, now seeking asylum in London. Later on in the story, on page 2, the defector denies the story. IRD is dead! Long live IRD! Liam Clarke and Barry Penrose (see review of The Committee, below) co-authored the story 'Syria paid IRA to kill Mountbatten' in the Sunday Times 17 May 1998, in which they reported that they had been told by former IRA member Sean O'Callaghan that he had been told that... ...

... B) and Miller (B ), and Fergus Ling. These five joined ISC's original Council with Hugh Adam-Watson (B) (resigned March 1974), Geoffrey Fairburn (B) (resigned 1975), and Richard Clutterbuck (B) (resigned 1977). A detailed account of ISC and its links to Forum World Features and IRD is in our appendices. Crozier came to ISC as Chairman of the CIA operation Forum World Features. ISC was his idea and had grown from an original 'Current Affairs Research Services Centre' with Forum. From the British equivalent of FWF, IRD, came Michael Goodwin (B ), Peter Janke (B ), Lynn Price ( ...

... 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 ...

... Brighton, Sussex: 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 of this ...

It set up a national structure with local branches- in 1954 there were 14- published a monthly Bulletin, and distributed many of the standard anti-communist texts of the time, for example Tufton Beamish's Must Night Fall?; some, such as the 'Background Books' series, published and/or subsidised by IRD; and leaflets from the CIA labour front in Europe, the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU) .( 97) In 1955 Common Cause's 'Advisory Council' included: Tom O'Brien and Florence Hancock, both past TUC presidents;(98) Bob Edwards, General Secretary of the Chemical Workers Union, 1947-51;(99 ...

... category. Arthur Gavshon (Obituary, Guardian 31 July 1995). Journalist, author, friend of this journal. Ian Greig (Obituary Glasgow Herald 4 November 1995). Anti-communist writer and propagandist; active in the Monday Club and Foreign Affairs Research Institute. Although I am still unclear of his precise role, I think he was an IRD stringer. Henry Hopkinson Lord Colyton (Obituary Guardian 11 January 1995).

... the Cominform would actually have written that 'new and and concentrated effort must be made by specially suitable undercover activists to penetrate into that bastion of British capitalism and so set up the strongest possible Communist cells within the Conservative Party....'. This document, I suspect, is a product of the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD). This impression is greatly strengthened by Braddock's report of another document, called 'MVD Information' (MVD became the KGB) 'which circulates to executives of the Soviet secret police and secret service'. In this 'it has been predicted that by June 1962, the number of fully-trained men and women who will be sent to work as ...

... right, 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 real reason which could ...

... FARI was co-sponsor with ISC and the National Strategy Information Centre (NSIC) of the so-called 'Freedom Blue Cross' conference in Brighton, apparently an attempt to persuade predominantly British multinational companies to fund a private 'pro freedom' propaganda organisation. David Leigh (Guardian 6 May 1980) saw this as an attempt to create a privately funded version of IRD (IRD having just been finished off by the Labour Government). Little has been heard of 'Freedom Blue Cross' since- nothing at all, in fact- and if the follow-up piece in the Guardian (7 June 1978) is anything to go by, the British companies present were hugely underwhelmed. (On Bluecross see also ...
