31. Disinformation: From Euros to UFOs [Lobster #40 (Winter 2000/1)]
... ) The story was written by Con Coughlin and attributed to a 'British banking official'. As the trial revealed, said official came from MI6, who had been supplying Coughlin with material for years. Leigh describes how, when Coughlin asked his source for evidence, he was shown but not allowed to copy documents. This is the classic IRD disinformation technique, described in use in Cyprus in the 1960s by Charles Foley in his book Legacy of Strife (2) and, more recently, by Colin Wallace working in Information Policy in Northern Ireland in the 1970s: show the dummies forgeries but don't let them take them out of the room Finding MI6 disinformation in the Sunday Telegraph ...

(c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 38) Winter 1999 Last| Contents| Next Issue 38 George Orwell and the IRD John Newsinger In their recent history of the Information Research Department (IRD), Paul Lashmar and James Oliver discuss George Orwell's decision to collaborate with that organisation's anti-Communist propaganda operations. They write that 'George Orwell's reputation as a left-wing icon took a body blow from which it may never recover when it was revealed in 1996 that he had cooperated closely with the IRD's Cold Warriors, even offering his own blacklist of eighty-six Communist fellow-travellers...'(1) This echoed the newspaper coverage of the revelations which were originally sensationalised by Richard Norton-Taylor and Seumas Milne in ...

35. Britain's Secret Propaganda War (Book review) [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... Next Issue 37 Britain's Secret Propaganda War Paul Lashmar and James Oliver Sutton Publishing, Stroud (UK) £25.00 hb This is a really interesting and important book- perhaps the most important book about the British secret state since Fitzgerald and Bloch's British Intelligence and Covert Action in the early 1980s. The incremental uncovering of the Information Research Department (IRD) story has been one of the continuing threads of British parapolitics since Richard Fletcher's pioneering work on it in the mid 1970s; and for several years now a synthesis of all the extant material on IRD has been waiting to be done. But Lashmar and Oliver have gone way beyond that. Although that existing material has been digested, ...

... ) Neil allowed the Sunday Times to be used by all manner of spooks to run all manner of disinformation while he was editor and this spiel of his on Chile looks very much like an intelligence briefing- maybe even one of those distributed at the time of the Chile coup when Neil was working for the Economist, a regular outlet for IRD briefings. 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. 'Not a thing,' I replied. 'Never heard of the guy. Why? ...

... ends the book unclear as to how much of this programme was known about by the politicians who were nominally in charge of it. Fletcher Prouty discussed the same question in his 1973 The Secret Team and concluded that the politicians knew very little. This is an important contribution to the continuing reevaluation of the Cold War; and what with the IRD book and this, Lashmar must now be one of Britain's more important contemporary historians.

38. A War of Words: a Cold War Witness (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... ) £25. Christopher Mayhew died recently thinking he set up the Information Research Department. As I have shown elsewhere, he was throughly manipulated by the Foreign Office- just like his boss at the time, Ernest Bevin, come to that. This short (142 pages) book contains 47 pages of Mayhew reminiscing about his involvement with IRD. His recollections were taped and edited by Lyn Smith, author in 1980 of one of the first big academic articles about IRD. One or two passages, for example on pp. 27 and 29, seem to me to show signs of Smith inserting material from that article. Much of the material will be familiar if you have ...
