41. Back to the future: the 1970s reconsidered [Lobster #34 (Winter 1998)]
... open, post-war order.(65) It was a one-sided struggle. The 'yes' campaign had unlimited funding, the support of the City of London, the large British companies, the British state, its broadcasting apparatus (the BBC) and almost all the rest of the media, as well as covert assistance from the CIA and IRD. The 'no' campaign was out-spent ten or fifteen to one. The socialist wing of the Labour Party had made its challenge and been defeated. Prime Minister Harold Wilson immediately removed Tony Benn from his job as Industry Minister. Dealing with inflation Meanwhile the inflation generated by the Heath government had reached 27% a year on some accounts ...

... 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 ...

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.

... last great Goldsmith campaign- his hunt for the Red Menace in the late 1970s.(1) Then as now Goldsmith saw himself as the saviour of the nation and put his money where his mouth was.(2) He funded some of Brian Crozier's operations, created Now! magazine, giving a platform to Crozier and other former IRD wallahs,(3) and set up the famous libel fund to enable the poverty-stricken British Right to sue their wealthier opponents on the Left. (That last bit about the Left is a joke, by the way.) Like Crozier, Goldsmith was then obsessed with an alleged enormous Soviet disinformation offensive against the West. In this ...

45. Anti-communism as a profession: The Information Research Department [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... the CPGB declined, the Party continued to play a significant role in the growth of labour militancy. Symbolised by Harold Wilson, a nominal 'left-winger' becoming Prime Minister in 1964, this perceptible shift to the left alarmed one group in particular, the professional anti-communist network in Britain, at the heart of which was the Information Research Department (IRD). For a supposedly secret agency, we now know quite a bit about IRD- certainly a great deal more than we did in 1978 when the organisation was closed. IRD finally got partly exposed because of its curious position of working with the intelligence services, but not for them; of being part of the Foreign Office but ...

... well be exaggerated and it is not clear how successful they were. For all this anti-Labour propaganda, Labour's total vote went up in the 1951 General Election. The Information Research Department In the labour movement the Trades Union Congress was working with the newly-formed, Foreign Office-based, political warfare executive, operating under cover as the Information Research Department (IRD), in an anti-communist drive. IRD was not an innovation. British politics since World War 1 is studded with clandestine propaganda operations involving the mass media of the day. The claims of massive post-World War 2 media penetration by Aims of Industry and the Economic League are reminiscent of the operations of the post World War 1 propaganda network ...

... . The Congress's press agency was detached, reorganised and renamed Forum World Features, and Crozier was appointed its director in 1965.(125) Crozier claims that 'In 1968 the KGB made a first attempt to wreck Forum';(126) and perhaps in anticipation of the day when Forum was 'blown', with other personnel from the IRD network Crozier set up the Institute for the Study of Conflict (ISC) between 1968 and 1970.(127) ISC The first funding came from Shell and BP but then, as Crozier puts it, 'the Agency [CIA] now came up with something bigger', and put him in contact with the American multi-millionaire, anti-communist ...

48. The subversion hunters and the social democrats in the 1970s [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... and the next the party, and the second most important part of the NATO alliance, is in the hands of someone who has spent the post-war years going to and from Moscow as an East-West trader! The rise of the left in the Labour Party and trade union movement, symbolised by the ascent of Wilson, was being monitored by IRD and its satellites, the Economic League, IRIS, Common Cause- and by Brian Crozier, who raised the alarm in the 1970 collection he edited, We Will Bury You..(73) Working the same seam- presumably for different sponsors- was former Army officer and Conservative MP, Geoffrey Stewart-Smith. In Stewart-Smith's journal, ...

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 ...

... increasingly like IRD's last stand.) The rest of the state's information and diplomatic services involved in the insurgencies frequently objected to this line, sometimes successfully. Quite why the rest of Whitehall put up with IRD's incompetent meddling until 1976 remains a mystery: Carruther's account of the politics of official propaganda does not get that deep. Anybody interested in IRD- or the wider issues of propaganda in British counter-insurgency policies- will find important new material here. A short version of this, concentrating on the IRD sections of the book, is 'A Red Under Every Bed? Anti-Communist Propaganda and Britain's Response to Colonial Insurgency', in Contemporary Record, Vol. 9, No. 2, ...
