... be said to imply a deal of cynicism. It also omits the fact that the expanding post-WW2 American empire was encroaching on, and sometimes displacing, the existing empires of the UK and France. But I'm being picky: the fact that he omits UK activities in the period (for example those of the Information Research Department [IRD]) is not surprising – even though they sometimes worked with the American efforts, for example in Indonesia in the sixties. In 330 pages Hancock can't deal with everything and the book is chiefly aimed at an American audience: one not familiar with Philip Agee,7 the magazine he founded, Covert Action Information Bulletin,8 and ...

73. Disinformation: From Euros to UFOs [Lobster #40 (Winter 2000/1)]
... ) The story was written by Con Coughlin and attributed to a 'British banking official'. As the trial revealed, said official came from MI6, who had been supplying Coughlin with material for years. Leigh describes how, when Coughlin asked his source for evidence, he was shown but not allowed to copy documents. This is the classic IRD disinformation technique, described in use in Cyprus in the 1960s by Charles Foley in his book Legacy of Strife (2 ) and, more recently, by Colin Wallace working in Information Policy in Northern Ireland in the 1970s: show the dummies forgeries but don't let them take them out of the room Finding MI6 disinformation in the Sunday Telegraph ...

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 ...

75. 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 ...

... 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 ...

... 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 ...

78. 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 ...

79. 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 ...
