41. Appendix 1: ISC, FWF, IRD [Lobster #11 (Apr 1986)]
... turn the research centre into a new 'Institute for the Study of Conflict." (13) At this time major changes were occurring in the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD). IRD was set up in 1948, the brainchild of Christopher Mayhew (S .O .E . during WW2), a junior minister in the Labour Government. Its original aim had been to attack communism in Europe, the Middle East and Asia by the promotion of social democracy as a 'third force'. It was to have been an open organisation, balancing anti-communism with anti-capitalism to appease Labour backbenchers. (14) This aim was never realised. IRD became ...

... abroad. The UK was MI5's bureaucratic 'territory'. Maurice Oldfield, MI6 head at the time, is said to have opposed the move. (Verrier, 1983 p 302) Once in Northern Ireland, MI6 began doing what MI6 does. It recruited agents, tried to create a political alternative to the IRA - the Social Democratic and Labour Party (and, perhaps, the Alliance Party) (Verrier, ibid p 286) - and began trying to talk to the IRA. MI5, which began operating in Northern Ireland with the advent of the IRA bombing campaign on mainland Britain, saw MI6 not as an ally but as an opponent. Colin Wallace: "The ...

(39) Most of these articles were obviously influenced by the Ulster Workers' Strike in May, but the conclusions drawn from that event varied as it was then still apparently ...

... 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 see also State Research No7 and Peoples' News Service ...

... 1974-1978 Foreword Kevin McNamara MP Any person who lived through the anguished days from November 1973 until Wilson's resignation will recall the high level of anticipation, expectation, surprise and wonder about what would be the next story to be leaked, scandal to be revealed, personality to be defamed, that was going to be another blow to the Labour Government. Stephen Dorril and Robin Ramsay have sought to unravel the events which took place at that time. They suggest that it was all part of a plan by elements within the security forces of the United Kingdom seeking to destabilise the Government of the day and to try to ensure the return of a Conservative Government with a right- ...

... more than a group of old soldiers playing games in their dotage. But if so why were they given access to operations like Information Research and the Joint Warfare Executive, where the psy ops training was based? Indeed, if it were just old soldiers refusing to fade away, why was Pincher so angry at the group's demise under the Labour Government? One final thread here. The RPOC group sounds not unlike the 'army of resistance' which Airey Neave was planning to set up in the event of a Labour victory in 1979 to forestall a "communist take-over". (61) Slessor's support of Walker's group suggests - no more - that RPOC may have been ...

... , among others, Admiral Hall (ex chief of Naval Intelligence), and originally known as Economic Study Clubs. But the State Research essay also points out that the League's fifth annual review (1925) states that the League was originally known as the Central Council of the Economic League, and prior to that, as National Propaganda. Labour Research, on the other hand, in an early piece on the League (58) refers to the Central Council of the Economic Leagues (plural), known, prior to 1920, as the National Propaganda Committee. This muddle is resolved by Barbara Lee Farr in her wonderful PhD thesis. (59) The National Propaganda Committee ...

... League for European Freedom circles. The Duchess of Atholl, on Common Cause's 'Advisory Board' from its inception, links the decline in the British League for European Freedom's "purely political work" (whatever that means) to the formation of Common Cause. (20) Dr. C.A .Smith, former Chair of the Independent Labour Party, was Secretary of Common Cause from 1954-56 (21), presumably from its inception, apparently in 1952: a piece in The Times announced Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton and John Brown, ex-General Secretary of the Iron and Steel Trades Confederation as joint chairs. (Douglas-Hamilton turns up later in the ...

(Issue 12) September 1986 Last | Contents | Next Issue 12 The British Right - scratching the surface The World Anti-Communist League and its British Connections There was a British representative at the first meeting in 1958 which eventually led to the formation of The World Anti-Communist League (WACL), a former trade union leader and Labour MP, George Dallas. (40) While serving in a minor capacity in the war-time coalition government, Dallas became increasingly concerned about the direction of Soviet policy and came to regard Poland as a test case of this. After the war he was a strong supporter of the 'Free Polish' cause and shared platforms with the ...

Neither Labour Research nor Searchlight have ever paid much attention to SIF (or, perhaps, just didn't get much information). Searchlight, for example, in a brief paragraph in No.31, refers to "the dear old SIF", and then remarks on the presence of G.K . Young as a former chair and the late ...
