... the US from PO Box 597004, Department 608, San Francisco, CA 94164-9004. Coming In From The Cold: British Propaganda and Red Army Defectors 1945-52 Wesley K. Wark in International History Review February 1987 This is an interesting addition to what little information we have on the early years of the Information Research Department (IRD) and the uses to which IRD put Soviet defectors. It also contains a couple of names to add to the list of known IRD people. Wark states flatly that IRD's work fell between 'white' and 'black' propaganda - which I don't believe. One former British diplomat to whom I spoke about IRD (and who wouldn't thank ...

83. 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, ...

(And Onslow, of course, was/still is a spook, having worked for MI6/IRD.) Other fragments of interest in these notes include: the story about Marcia Falkender refusing to be positively vetted; the story of the possible legal action by the widow of the civil servant Michael Halls who blamed the stress of working for Wilson and Marcia for the early death of her husband; the story that Gaitskell was murdered by ...

(1 ) CCF is believed to have originated in the fertile mind of Frank Wisner of the Office of Policy Co-ordination (OPC) which later became the CIA's covert Directorate of Plans. ...

... and losing); and fighting a 'Who rules? ' election (and losing). And so the return of Harold Wilson and the extraordinary events of 1974 - about which much more below. Arbitrarily we can locate the beginning of this in 1969 when the Labour Government pruned the Foreign Office's covert propaganda arm, the Information Research Department (IRD).(4 ) IRD had grown from its origins in the 1940s to employ hundreds of people and spend nearly 1 million per year on anti-Soviet and anti-Communist propaganda. (5 ) The next year some of the personnel of another covert propaganda operation, this one run by the CIA, Forum World Features ( ...

These five joined ISC's original Council with Hugh Adam-Watson (B ) (resigned March 1974), Geoffrey Fairburn (B ) (resigned 1975), and Richard Clutterbuck (B ) (resigned 1977). A detailed account of ISC and its links to Forum World Features and IRD is in our appendices. Crozier came to ISC as Chairman of the CIA operation Forum World Features. ISC was his idea and had grown from an original 'Current Affairs Research Services Centre' with Forum. From the British equivalent of FWF, IRD, came Michael Goodwin (B ), Peter Janke (B ), Lynn Price ( ...

... sponsor with ISC and the National Strategy Information Centre (NSIC) of the so-called 'Freedom Blue Cross' conference in Brighton, apparently an attempt to persuade predominantly British multinational companies to fund a private 'pro freedom' propaganda organisation. David Leigh (Guardian 6 May 1980) saw this as an attempt to create a privately funded version of IRD (IRD having just been finished off by the Labour Government). Little has been heard of 'Freedom Blue Cross' since - nothing at all, in fact - and if the follow-up piece in the Guardian (7 June 1978) is anything to go by, the British companies present were hugely underwhelmed. (On Bluecross ...

... this network - essentially the armed heart of the state - could hardly have been more explicit. From it she has taken Cabinet and Shadow Cabinet members - Neave, Tebbit, Ridley; junior front bench spokesmen - Biggs- Davison, Mitchell, Churchill; a speechwriter - Robert Moss; foreign policy tutors - Robert Conquest and Leonard Schapiro from IRD and ISC; and her closest political friend, mentor, confidant and ally - Airey Neave. She expressed her faith in Neave by her willingness to have him in the two 'hot' seats; Northern Ireland, on which he was shadow front-bench spokesman, and, had he lived, 'intelligence supremo' - overseeing the intelligence ...
