72. Enemies Within? (Book Reviews) [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... 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 Labour Party ...

73. 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.' ...

74. Loose cuts and short ends [Lobster #31 (Jun 1996)]
... Liberties, Smythe described how, when he became Director of Mind in 1973, an anonymous document was circulated to some of the charity's most eminent supporters alleging that Smythe was some kind of communist agent. I wrote to Mr Smythe who kindly supplied me with part of the document. The document looks like a pretty obvious bit of state (IRD?) disinformation, doctored with some clumsy spelling errors and typos to make it appear non-official: for example 'legitamate' for legitimate, 'discribed' for described and 'conscious objector' for conscientious objector. What struck me most forcibly re-reading the document is this on page 7. 'Smythe was also involved with the International Confederation for Disarmament and Peace ...

... unions and other threats to liberal democracy in the 1970s. Of these Britain in Agony (Faber and Faber 1978) was the best known (and had the silliest title). David Floyd (obit Guardian 3 September 1997). Journalist, Soviet specialist, chiefly with the Daily Telegraph, later with Brian Crozier at Goldsmith's Now!; IRD asset or employee- I don't know which. Brigadier Michael Harbottle (obit Guardian 8 May 1997). Founder member of Generals for Peace and Disarmament, which was routinely accused of being a Soviet front by the pro-NATO lobby in the 1980s. And might have been such; but where is the evidence? Sir John Jones (obit ...

... MI5 had concluded that the 'threat' of the Communist Party had declined; and switched resources to what Peter Wright sneeringly called the 'far and wide left' – the Trotskyist fragments. MI5's lack of interest in the 'Soviet threat' triggered the formation of the anti-subversion lobby which gathered round Brian Crozier in the early 1970s – CIA, MI6 and IRD personnel who were not persuaded of the decline of the 'Soviet threat'. (This was part of the wider debate about the reality of détente between NATO and the Soviet bloc.) Crozier and his chums certainly did not think MI5 was on the ball where the perceived menace from the Soviets and the left was concerned; and they ...

77. Spy Flights of the Cold War (Book review) [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... 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.

It includes a paper by ex ISC Peter Janke, now Director of Research for the MI6 operation, Control Risks. Editor Tucker is a former Deputy Head of IRD. No team like the old team. (Thanks to H. G. in Canada for the clippings,) Tugwell is a contributor to Contemporary Research on Terrorism edited by Paul Wilkinson and Alasdair M. Stewart (Aberdeen University Press, 1987), some of the papers from a big conference on terrorism held in Aberdeen a couple ...

79. Cold War stories 2 [Lobster #42 (Winter 2001/2)]
... with a paper on British intellectuals in the context of CIA efforts to influence opinion in Europe. The influence of covert operations by the Americans seems to have been mixed at best, since the general British response was that they did not need the Americans to fight communism. For instance, in the labour movement the links between the TUC and IRD ensured a limited impact for any American contribution. Amongst the intellectuals there was also a reluctance to support American-backed schemes, with the lacklustre response of Trevor-Roper, Ayer, and Russell towards the Congress for Cultural Freedom being a case in point. (Russell may have been a 'figurehead' as Honorary Chairman of the CCF but he eventually resigned ...

'liaised, advised, wrote, lectured, published- and helped IRD [the Information Research Department] with the distribution of one of their early publications, The Curtain Falls.'(40) The US post-war penetration of the British Labour Party and wider trade union movement climaxes with Joe Godson, who was Labour Attaché in London from 1953-59. Godson became very close to the Labour Party leader Hugh Gaitskell ...
