... 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 ...

32. 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 ...

... 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 ...

34. 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 ...

... 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 ...

... ) 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 ...

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...
