... , Knight, Goodhart, Biggs-Davison, Churchill, Maude, Soref and Amery- would be called 'right-wingers', with Wall, Knight, Biggs-Davison, Churchill, Soref and Amery (and possibly others) being members of the Monday Club. (And Onslow, of course, was/still is a spook, having worked for MI6/IRD.) Other fragments of interest in these notes include: the story about Marcia Falkender refusing to be positively vetted; the story of the possible legal action by the widow of the civil servant Michael Halls who blamed the stress of working for Wilson and Marcia for the early death of her husband; the story that Gaitskell was murdered by ...

... the bomb. 'One of the most widely circulated reports had the bombing carried out by Basque ETA terrorists on behalf of the Sandinistas. Curiously the reports were based on leaks- phone-calls to major newspapers in Washington and the U.S. from Intelligence sources, including the State Department's Office of Public Diplomacy'. The latter is a kind of updated IRD, and 'public diplomacy' is a 1980s euphemism for disinformation and psychological warfare. Morgan found that 'The same story was also being pushed by what the Pentagon correspondent of the U.S. television network ABC called 'reliable CIA sources'.' Few disinformation stories can be traced back to their sources, but in this instance Morgan got close. ...

... that by 1953 the 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 launching a ...

64. The EU: A Corporatist Racket (book review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Bilderberg tells us nothing not available on the Net and in many other books. The real point of this book are the chapters on events prior to the 1975 referendum on EEC membership. This is the best account I have read of the campaign run by the pro-EEC lobby in this country. The state, including the Information Research Department (IRD), the quasi-independent anti- subversion, anti-communist propaganda organisation, co- 1 The ACUE/European Movement, for example, was first discussed in 'How the European Movement was launched' in Hirsch and Fletcher's 1971 Who were they travelling with?

This is the result of recent changes in the law as a result of the Mary Whitehouse case against the film 'Scum', which now obliges the IBA to vet potentially controversial programmes.

67. In Brief [Lobster #4 (Apr 1984)]
... Unit and Here Is The News- Courtesy of MI6 Richard Fletcher, Tribune 2nd September and 9th September 1983 Two large pieces. The first is on the work of the Information Research Department of the Foreign Office: the second describes the formation of a world-wide network of news agencies and publishing companies created by MI6 to put out material created by IRD. These are essentially expansions of previous work by Fletcher- see, e.g. his piece in the Guardian 18th December 1981- and are based on a large study commissioned by UNESCO. This latter fact may give some hint of UNESCO's current unpopularity with the UK and US governments. BOSS in Britain James Barber, African Affairs, July ...

Could this have been part of the MI5 faction trying to undermine Wilson by showing that one of his Ministers"- note: a Minister- "had been a spy?" (134) *** On IRD, FWF, see appendix. Preuves Information was the French version of FWF. North American News Agency (NANA) looks like an intelligence front, probably for the CIA.

Labour Governments of Wilson and Callaghan did the following: Closed the Information Policy Unit (1976) (187) Closed the Resistance and Psychological Operations Committee (RPOC) (1976) Through Wilson, publicly attacked MI5 (1976) Appointed a new head of MI5 from outside the service (1978) Closed the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD) (1977) Cut off the Economic League's access to MI5 information (and, by inference, the access of the other private intelligence agencies) (1978) It would be encouraging to have this version of events confirmed.

70. The Rise of Political Lying [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... Clinton's election campaign techniques and the availability of the money from Michael (now Lord) Levy merely speeded things up. In another sense it is just the political parties adopting the methods of the psy-ops people in the state. The intimate relationship between a Peter Mandelson and certain journalists is a facsimile of the relationship that the state's disinformation people IRD most notably had with journalists all the way through the Cold War. Oborne tells us that New Labour's mendacity amounts to a 'new epistemology', a kind of post-modernist relationship with the truth. It's a nice idea but it is far too generous to the people concerned. They just told a bunch of porkies which the media have ...
