81. 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.

... American capitalism. The man responsible for this initiative was Christopher Mayhew MP; and what would have particularly delighted Attlee was that he was, like the Prime Minister himself, an Old Haileyburian. Attlee took great pleasure in promoting chaps from his old school through the ranks of the labour movement! Whatever the ideological colouring of the propaganda, the IRD was defending foreign, colonial policy and defence policies that were indistinguishable from those a Conservative government would have followed. All that was different was the rhetoric. One other area where Lomas challenges the accepted wisdom is with regard to the notion that Attlee was unsympathetic to covert operations. He insists that the closing down of the Special Operations Executive ...

84. 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 ...

85. In Brief [Lobster #4 (Apr 1984)]
... Here Is The News - Courtesy of MI6 Richard Fletcher, Tribune 2nd September and 9th September 1983 Two large pieces. The first is on the work of the Information Research Department of the Foreign Office: the second describes the formation of a world-wide network of news agencies and publishing companies created by MI6 to put out material created by IRD. These are essentially expansions of previous work by Fletcher - see, e.g . his piece in the Guardian 18th December 1981 - and are based on a large study commissioned by UNESCO. This latter fact may give some hint of UNESCO's current unpopularity with the UK and US governments. BOSS in Britain James Barber, African Affairs ...

... to meet August and comments: "Clearly MI5 wanted me to know that he (August) was coming. Why? Could this have been part of the MI5 faction trying to undermine Wilson by showing that one of his Ministers" - note: a Minister - "had been a spy?" (134) ** * On IRD, FWF, see appendix. Preuves Information was the French version of FWF. North American News Agency (NANA) looks like an intelligence front, probably for the CIA. It was owned by Ernest Cuneo, an American political fixer, partner in the law firm of the legendary fixer Tommas Corcoran - 'Tommy the Cork'. Cuneo ...

... Labour Governments of Wilson and Callaghan did the following: Closed the Information Policy Unit (1976) (187) Closed the Resistance and Psychological Operations Committee (RPOC) (1976) Through Wilson, publicly attacked MI5 (1976) Appointed a new head of MI5 from outside the service (1978) Closed the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD) (1977) Cut off the Economic League's access to MI5 information (and, by inference, the access of the other private intelligence agencies) (1978) It would be encouraging to have this version of events confirmed. What to do about the state's security services should be high on the agenda of the next non-Tory ...

... 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 ...

... 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, ...
