71. Spooks and the House of Commons [Lobster #42 (Winter 2001/2)]
... in his piece about Parliament and spooks is the curious case of Ken Livingstone's parliamentary questions. In 1987/8 , fed by Colin Wallace and Fred Holroyd via Livingstone's then (unpaid) researcher Neil Grant, new (1987) MP Ken Livingstone put down hundreds of written questions in the House of Commons about the war in Northern Ireland, IRD, and the cases of Holroyd and Wallace. In Lobster this was discussed in issue 16 . But I also wrote about this is the now defunct magazine Cut (August 1988) and made the following comment: 'Livingstone appears to have hidden allies within the bureaucracy of the House of Commons. He has had astonishing luck in the lotteries ...

72. 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 ...

... 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 ...

74. Demos [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... a notorious lobbyist for British Gas (BG), McDonald's (trying to squeeze them into school dinners) and British Nuclear Fuels. He 'brokered the marriage' between De La Rue and GTech to create Camelot and CAN was part of his operation: GTech gave them 130,000. Tucker advised Thatcher on PR and had connections with the IRD. (46 ) CAN's other funder is BG. This chimes in with Greg Palast's work on lobbying in The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. He has Derek Draper and Roger Liddle boasting that they can put a BG chairman on a government task force and that they were hired to do so. Palast also writes about scandal-ridden ...

75. Feedback [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... (c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 46) Winter 2003 Last | Contents | Next Issue 46 Feedback From Garrick Alder Re: John Newsinger's 'Orwell and the IRD in Lobster 38 The appearance since Lobster 45 of further details of Orwell's dealings with the IRD has reminded me how very interested I was by Mr Newsinger's admirable reappraisal of the Orwell/IRD incidents. Two things have struck me that seems to have escaped comment anywhere. Firstly, that the March 1949 meeting between Orwell and Kirwan (during the former's tubercular confinement in Gloucestershire) resulted in a list of potential recruits to IRD, and the so-called 'blacklist' was sent, ...

... 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 ...

... , for example the fall of Singapore, the British-American refusal to open a 'second front' in 1941-43 (to let the Germans and Soviets destroy each other) the (deliberate?) failure of the assault on Dieppe, civilian bombing by the RAF and so forth. After WW2 we get the CIA in Europe, IRD, and the Korean war (US biological warfare). From the 1950s we skip to the 1980s and Reagan-era disinformation about the Soviets (shooting the Pope etc); and finally we arrive at the two assaults on Iraq and a long list of countries which the US has attacked/invaded/subverted in the post- ...

... tells us what the book is going to do. Francis Stonor Saunders' account of the Congress for Cultural Freedom and the CIA (reviewed in Lobster 38 ) was titled 'Who Paid the Piper? ' and implied, rather than actually demonstrated, that the CIA was calling the tune. Over a much wider field than Saunders with chapters on IRD, the New Leader, labor diplomats (American labor attach s), the European Movement and the creation of Bilderberg, the Congress for Cultural Freedom and Encounter Wilford questions the conclusion of the musical metaphor. Some of this is familiar; some familiar but with new sources; some new. Some of it involves the CIA, and ...

79. The Rise of Political Lying [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... 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 ...

... ' 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 ...
