61. Atlantic Crossings [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... the Tory government's defence estimates. The Gaitskellites repulsed the unilateralists at the annual conference that year; and in the Labour Party its 'personnel committee', the organisational subcommittee, was dominated by Ray Gunter MP(54) and George Brown, a 'CIA source', and serviced by the Party's National Agent's Department, which received its information from IRD and others. Then things went wrong. Determined upon a final purge of the Parliamentary party, George Brown approached MI5, via the journalist Chapman Pincher, for evidence of Soviet links to Labour MP's believed to be 'fellow travellers'. But MI5 declined, apparently because afraid that to do so would reveal their sources within the PLP; ...

62. The View from the Bridge [Lobster #30 (Dec 1995)]
... , but that is the outfit he means.) Vialls believes that the shooting was part of the demonization of Libya prior to the bombing of that country by the USA, with British assistance. Vialls' attempt to prove that he committed a murder everyone else thinks done by someone else is unique, as far as I am aware. IRD: new material, old lies Another flurry of newspaper articles about IRD's early years occurred in August based on the release of some hitherto secret government files on the department. The only new piece of information I noticed in the press reports was in the Times August 17 1995, 'Celebrity team used in secret anti-Soviet campaign'. ...

63. Defector Politics: or, grooving with Mr G. [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... the private sector has to step into the breach. The group was the Coalition for Peace Through Strength, UK counterpart of the US group with the same name. (In the US group was a US General called Stilwell, a member of the Pinay Circle, whose meetings were also attended by Mr Crozier.) Pranks by MI5 and IRD Like their friend? mentor? case officer? Brian Crozier, messrs Lewis, Kerpel and Leigh are really bemoaning the demise of IRD in 1978. For it was IRD's role to combat communism, and the 'problem' of agents of influence. (In the 1980s the 'agents of influence' must be presumed to be CND.) ...

64. The Perfect English Spy (Book Review) [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... down side there is another endless account of Burgess and Maclean, Philby, Bunt et al, in whom I was never very interested. It might be bulging with new information; I just don't know (or care). There are some striking omissions. Not a word on nuclear weapons, for example, and only one reference to IRD, on page 145: 'On the crazy edge of that effort [to recruit students and trade unionist 'sleepers'] were F Branch's dirty tricks. In co-operation with the Foreign Office's Information Research Department, MI5's agents were encouraged to disrupt subversive organisations, even impregnating lavatory paper with an itching substance at halls hired by communist organisations ...

... go? Something like this? 'Listen old boy. Can't tell you the source, of course - need to know - but take it from me we have evidence, hard concrete evidence, that the KGB is funding the party. It is absolutely solid gold. ' Nudge, nudge; wink wink. Thus emboldened by official sources - IRD, I would guess - they took the fact of CPGB influence on the trade unions, and added the assumption of Soviet control. What a thrill to be part of the anti-subversion lobby in 1974 and 5! All their theories were being substantiated! The Russians ran the CPGB, which ran the unions, which ran the ...

66. Journals [Lobster #28 (Dec 1994)]
... the three parapolitical essays; 36 pages on the Cointelpro, the FBI and the American Indian, for example - appears to be attributed. In the digestion process, bits have got scrambled. On page 67, for example (the first page I tried to read) we are told of a 'merger' between the Information Research Department (IRD) and the Institute for the Study of Conflict (ISC). A 'merger'? Not as far as I knew. I looked up Bloch and Fitzgerald from whom I guessed this section had been lifted. Yes, there was the material on page 98. Bloch and Fitzgerald had this: 'The staff of IRD was down to ...

... Inf Pol: Miller treats 'psychological operations' as synonymous with disinformation. Not so: only a small part of psy-ops is disinformation.) In chapter 3 he gives a good account of the mechanics of newspaper coverage; emphasises the importance placed by the British state on international coverage, especially in the USA; and reveals that an IRD-type operation is still running, feeding Foreign and Commonwealth Office material into the US radio network through 'the London Radio Service'. Chapter 4 is a study of the international coverage, contrasting the near uniformity of language use among the major British media - the language and the concepts suggested by the state - and that used in overseas ...

... for the British and American intelligence services. Crozier would deny that he worked for anybody: 'at all times I remained independent, executing only tasks that were in line with my own objectives. '( pp. xii, xiii) But on p. xii of the preface he tells us he 'worked with' the CIA, MI6 and IRD; on p. 20 he tells that briefings he had been getting from an MI6 officer secured for him the job as editor of the Economist's Foreign Report; on p. 51 he writes of a 'part-time consultancy for IRD'; and on p. 86 that IRD 'put an office at [his] disposal.

... What is visible in the anti-communist literature is a shift in emphasis on the perceived main threat represented by the CP. In the early post-war years that seems to have been centred on the plethora of CP front organisations such as the friendship societies. This is presumably the early influence of the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD) in supplying anti-communist material. Focused on events in Europe, it was the the Soviet-run front organisations which struck IRD. But from the early 1950s, as the NATO-Soviet confrontation in Europe waned, it is the CP's industrial wing and the network it had in the trade unions which is perceived as the ...

... 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 ...
