... 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 ...

52. Was there a 'communist threat'? [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... imprecise at best. Initially, post-war, the major focus of the state's anti-communists seems to have been on the Soviet front groups - the friendship societies etc. Eric Shaw mentions that in 1953 the Labour Party's Proscription List suddenly expanded with information about these groups assumed to come from 'the Foreign Office [i .e . IRD] and Special Branch' run through the International Department of the Party.(163) This focus on the CPGB front groups seems to be attributable to two things. If Bower's recent biography of MI5 head Dick White is accurate, one is the inadequacies of MI5 in the post-war years.(164) The second is ...

53. The view from the bridge [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... no editorial names appeared in it – and the suspicion was that it was being used to run disinfo. This Mountbatten-Kincora story looks to me like just another one of the disinfo stories that were built around Kincora none of which (thus far) have ever amounted to anything, despite the possibility of considerable compensation for the victims. IRD reborn?On 17 October 2008 in 'Paedophiles unite with terrorists online', 'an investigation by The Times' claimed that examination of Jihadists' computers showed that some contained child pornography images.(7 ) This story included speculation either that there was something about being a Jihadist which leads to paedophilia or that Jihadists were using child porn pictures ...

... b 8.99 An updated and expanded version of Defending the Realm: MI5 and the Shayler Affair which was reviewed in Lobster 38 , this account of MI5's adjustment to the post Cold War world is one of the best books on the UK's intelligence services, up there with Stephen Dorril's MI6 book, Paul Lashmar and James Oliver's book on IRD and Richard Aldrich's The Hidden Hand. Rereading it, I was struck by the following. Although we now know quite a lot about MI5's recent history, almost none of it has come from MI5 itself, despite the talk of openness and its Web site. A good deal of the key information has come from David Shayler who is ...

... ' the UDC came to mind. But in the case of 'public diplomacy', while public does mean open, diplomacy doesn't mean diplomacy. 'Public diplomacy' is a recent term for a range of activities hitherto called propaganda, public relations, advertising and psy-ops. So while this book could have been been about the CIA, IRD, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its little UK cousin, the Westminster Foundation for Democracy, and all those American interventions in the Soviet bloc since the fall of the Berlin Wall, installing pro-American regimes with money and electioneering/PR techniques, of course it isn't. 'Public diplomacy' is basically a euphemism ...

... 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. ...

... the unions; the unions control the Labour Party; therefore the Soviets control the Labour Party.1 This MI5 theory led the anti-communist right to counter-organise and the author gives us a pretty detailed account of this in 1974-6 : the rise of the anti-subversion lobby (he mentions Brian Crozier's ISC but not IRD); the so-called private armies, GB75 and Unison; the surveillance and bugging of many on the left; the smear campaigns 1 The author does not mention the Soviet money. MI5 had been tracking the Soviet funds in British politics since the 1920s. See Kevin Quinlan's The Secret War Between the Wars: MI5 in the ...
