31. Lobbying [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... Smith'. ( Lobster 39 ). Defence procurement is frequently underhanded. In the US last year, Congressman Randy Cunningham was jailed for eight years for picking up over one million pounds from defence contractors and others in exchange for steering government contracts their way and other favours (The Times, 4 March 2006). Similarly, senior British MOD civil servant Michael Hale was jailed for two years in April this year for accepting bribes from an American company (Daily Telegraph, 17 April 2007). The construction industry can be equally corrupt, the most recent example being the 'more than 40 dawn raids carried out in four countries by police investigating alleged Mafia involvement in EU security and ...

32. The view from the bridge [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... the Ministry of Defence confirmed the presence of one of the cover names, 4 Field Survey Troop, Royal Engineers, but denied the presence of the other, Northern Ireland Training and Advisory Team. Other than confirming that 4 Field Survey Troop were in Northern Ireland when and where Holroyd said they were, no further information was forthcoming, the MOD replying, through junior minister Roger Freeman, that 'Detailed information on this unit, which is not now deployed in the Province, is not available. '( [11] ) Fast forward to 2006 and researchers in the national archives have discovered a 1974 army briefing paper titled 'Army Plain Clothes Patrols in Northern Ireland'. The briefing ...

33. In camera injustice [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... a tactic. Two examples illustrate this: (a ) It was claimed I lied on a job application form before joining EMI in 1976. This was completely untrue and no evidence was produced, but the jury were given the impression that I had obtained the job illegitimately. (b ) I had two private meetings at EMI and the MoD to discuss my security clearance. These meetings were recorded without my knowledge and the original tapes destroyed. However, transcripts of these meetings were analysed in court and used to denigrate my character. The meetings were held on 12 November 1979 and 10 June 1980, i.e . over 12 years before my arrest. All my lawyers ...

... deny reports that convicted radical cleric Abu Hamza organised terror training camps in the Brecon Beacons in the late 1990s. ' ( [24] )You can take this either way: it was a matter of state security so why bother to tell a Liberal Democrat MP who was never going to be in charge of the Ministry; or the MoD was as much in the dark as the rest of us. But we should also look critically at claims on sources. By September we have references to Guantanamo testimonies which were 'read' to the journalists concerned and then accepted as fact, without any analysis conveyed to the public of the circumstances in which the information might have been gathered ...

... made by Pencourt; and thus around Pencourt's investigation. In not pursuing Wilson's hint about Northern Ireland, the programme treated them almost as if they were A and R men who had declined to sign The Beatles. But even if they had pursued the Wilson steer towards Wallace, in 1976/7 finding him would have been difficult: the MOD has parked him in Preston. Had they found him, Wallace says today:'...if I had been made aware that the former PM had asked Penrose and Courtiour to contact me about the "plots", then I would certainly have used that opportunity to get the matter looked into. The fact that a former ...

... security' .. .. The FOIA may help to curb this abuse because it adds a public interest test to the national security exemption. However, there are many obstacles to the public's right to know in this area. Firstly, most security services are absolved from the public interest test by virtue of s23 of the FOIA [the MOD and Special Branch are covered by the Act] .. .. .. There are numerous dangers with having such a blanket exemption. One of the worst abuses came to light during the Matrix Churchill arms-to-Iraq case in 1992 when the government showed it was willing to see innocent people go to jail rather than disclose ...

... not)Whobelieved that the British state would give us access to its files without a considerable struggle? So the news that a 'clearing house' had been set up in Whitehall to look at potentially embarrassing FOI requests, was hardly a surprise.( [4 ] ) But I did not imagine something as ingenious as the claim by the MOD that millions of their files have been contaminated by asbestos and are therefore inaccessible. ( [5 ] ) Who dares to say that our civil servants are lacking in initiative?

38. Paul Foot 1938 - 2004 [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... Foot and I left the hotel and got into his knackered old Mini. For Colin Wallace supporters like us it was quite an occasion: it had been announced that day that David Calcutt QC, after examining the evidence, had found that the 1975 Civil Service Appeal Board hearing of Colin Wallace's appeal against his dismissal had been rigged by the MOD, just as Wallace had claimed; and this meant that Wallace was eventually going to win his struggle with the British state. (Calcutt's judgement is reproduced in Lobster 20.) As we crawled through central London's traffic, Foot was exultant: 'All my life I have been trying to rattle the British establishment, and I've finally done ...

... through Whitehall at Tony Blair's talk of Iraq being a threat (see 'Iraq', above), made some further comments on BBC Radio 4. 'There was a culture of news management which came in after 1997 which I had not seen before and intelligence got swept up in that. ' During the bombing of Yugoslavia the pressure from the MOD press office to come up with good news was intense. Morrison said: 'What I did, in effect, was within my crisis staff, set up in effect my own press office to handle the MoD press office. I took a very senior and tough-minded analyst and told him: "This is your job, to ...

... , which established the DIY trend subsequently followed by, for example, Julie Ward's father, or Ken Bigley's family. However, an earlier example pointed the way: the 1980s battle of Helen Smiths father, a retired policeman, to prove that his daughter, a nurse, was murdered in Saudi Arabia. This pitched him against spook, MOD and FO officials alike along with the British class system who perceived state and private sector interests to be best served by cynical cover-up of a heinous crime. Concurrent with the DIY, has been growing, sophisticated, public awareness of the inherent conflicts of interests and countless hypocrisies within the system: e.g . government's pretence ...
