41. Britain's Secret Propaganda War (Book review) [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... 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.

44. A War of Words: a Cold War Witness (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... hb) 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 ...

... 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. ...

... 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 ...

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.

... 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. ...
