... . (8) 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 threat. You can see it ...

82. The Ulster Citizen Army smear [Lobster #14 (Nov 1987)]
... groups that it was real and the later reaction of journalists that it was a 'funny'- both were correct; and (b) because of one sentence in the document: "As far as is known this project was cleared through H. Mooney, the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) Information Adviser." Mooney was the IRD (Information Research Department) officer involved in the creation of the Information Policy Unit and his name is to be found very rarely indeed. I just do not believe that a phoney briefing document on the UCA would so casually (and senselessly) reveal the identity and role of Hugh Mooney. (1) The evidence is that, ...

... (19) Coote had contacts in the Soviet Embassy and, interestingly, he was a golfing friend of the Director of MI5, Sir Roger Hollis. (20) Coote arranged a meeting at the Garrick Club. Accompanying Ward to this lunch was David Floyd, the Telegraph's correspondent on Soviet Affairs. Floyd was on the books of the IRD. (2I) IRD, run by the Foreign Office, was a Cold War propaganda outfit which had a close relationship with MI6; and, especially with section IX which dealt with the Soviet Union. Was the meeting set up by the intelligence services or did Floyd supply a report to section IX? Officially Ward was employed by ...

84. 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; ...

Notice the misdirection: that IRD was the arm of the Foreign Office. A little research shows that it had become almost autonomous, running its own anti-detente foreign policy with the likes of Crozier. That was the problem for the ...

Crozier also stepped into the gap caused by the closure of IRD with a group that included ex-SIS officer Nicholas Elliot and US General Vernon Walters that he described as a 'Private Sector Operational Intelligence agency', called the 6I (the ...

... provided an opportunity to smear Wilson who, in fact, had acted completely honourably. Over the years there have been veiled references in gossip to Wilson but no substantial published material, though there were some peculiar letters from a Wilson enemy Hartley Shawcross. What the Tribunal did reveal was the involvement of the newly created Foreign Office propaganda unit, IRD, within the Labour movement. There was considerable press interest in 1962 in the East-West Traders who went to the Leipzig Trade Fair. Questions were asked in the House of Commons and much was made of their close relationship to the, then, unrecognised East German government.

... of Information Policy during his time as Defence Secretary or Northern Ireland Secretary. p. 162 'Information Policy was largely an Army and Defence Intelligence Service operation.' Information Policy was staffed by the Army and the Information Research Department. During my time at HQ Northern Ireland none of the staff belonged to Defence Intelligence. Pincher's failure to mention the IRD involvement is very interesting because of the key input the department made to the unit and the fact that its presence there has been widely reported over the past years. p. 163 'It is certain that Wallace was involved in the rather crude concoction of a diary of a disaffected IRA man, supposed to have been secured in a raid ...

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 GTech's connections ...
