... trade-union leaders from Britain and Europe to discuss tactics of disrupting industry throughout Europe in the ensuing five years'. Steve Dorril adds: There is one little gem in Wright's book which is worth noting. On p. 93 Wright reveals that the Director-General of MI5, Sir Roger Hollis, deliberately destroyed a document before the Denning Inquiry into the Profumo Affair. This showed that Hollis had tried, via the Cabinet Secretary, to enlist John Profumo's help in an entrapment operation of the Soviet diplomat, Eugene Ivanov, in July 1961. Tony Summers and I speculated that this was the case in Honeytrap but had no evidence. Hollis misled Denning-- easy enough-- and Prime ...

... " By coincidence- or not- a close friend of Dunbar was the painter Hal Woolf (who did know Harris) who himself died in very mysterious circumstances on 23 November 1962 (On which see Private Eye 9 August 1963). The case became a cause celebre and remains unsolved. Interest was heightened because Woolf had connections to the Profumo Affair and because his wife had been a friend of Guy Burgess. Daily Express 7 December 1986 Molehunt: the full story of the Soviet spy in MI5, Nigel West (Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London 1987) p 85.

... . Of much greater significance to Eddowes was a discovery he made in Toronto when he knocked on the door of an apartment owned by one of Shaw's boyfriends: it was opened by a fellow named Robin Drury. Drury, a homosexual, had been the 'agent' of Christine Keeler during the time of the British sex scandal known as the Profumo Affair in 1963. Like Eddowes I had often wondered whether Shaw knew Stephen Ward, the osteopath at the centre of the affair. This discovery inches the contention forward. Stephen Dorril is the other pioneer of UK Shaw studies (and co-author, with Anthony Summers of the best book on the Profumo Affair Honeytrap:the Secret Worlds of ...

The US Ambassador attended the Parliamentary debate on the latter in person and cabled back to Washington that MacMillan had become 'an electoral liability....his replacement cannot be too long delayed.... MacMillan eventually gave way to the Earl of Home (whom he favoured over R.A. Butler) in October 1963 ...

... are spent sketching the picture of Wilson as deluded, with a highly unusual (almost subservient) relationship with his own PA, Lady Falkender, and erratic judgement in general. However: on pp. 74-75 we learn that, yes, there were hidden microphones in 10 Downing Street. Apparently Harold Macmillan asked MI5 to install them 'during the Profumo scandal'. They remained in situ until 1977 when they were quietly removed. One reading of this would be as follows: 10 Attlee, too, went full term in 1950, and almost lost. In 1963 the US (specifically the CIA) lost patience with the British old boy network running MI6, following the imprisonment of ...

... debacle. The most significant figure he employed at Queen was Robin Douglas-Home, nephew of Sir Alec Douglas-Home. Robin Douglas-Home, who counted himself a friend of both Frank Sinatra and John F. Kennedy, appears to have had access to quite a considerable variety of interesting information. On 31 July 1962 Queen published the first piece of gossip linking John Profumo to Christine Keeler and Eugene Ivanov. It is not known who supplied Queen and/or Robin Douglas-Home with this information, but its appearance was a significant part of the events that led to the collapse of the MacMillan government.1 0 The career and political inclinations of Major Oliver Smedley have already been noted. During the negotiations to purchase the ...

... led to his incarceration. We began ripping through our libraries trying to make sense of Wallace's account. It quickly became apparent that we had been handed an enormous- and enormously complicated- story. But in the midst of this research, Dorril was contacted by Anthony Summers who offered him the chance to be co-author of a book on the Profumo Affair, which became Honeytrap. Dorril abandoned Wallace and Holroyd and I wrote Lobster 11, an attempt to make sense of some of Wallace's allegations. We had a press conference in the House of Commons, hosted by Kevin McNamara, my MP, who had written a cautious endorsement of the thesis in Lobster 11. Fred Holroyd should ...

18. The secret of the 1917 ‘Balfour declaration’ [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... , (London: Macmillan 1961) This was an insider's account of the dramatis personae, frank but excessively respectful of the decency of their motives. Margaret George, The Hollow Men, (London: Leslie Frewin, 1965) Was a more detached but damning indictment, and she names the guilty names. But by this time, the Profumo scandal (not coincidentally at Cliveden) and Wilson's Labour election victory in 1963 had displaced concern with raking over the past. 'Appeasement' became just another topic of debate among historians, and the central question of who was actually making foreign policy in Britain was lost sight of. From the 1950s onwards, distraction was provided with the revelations ...

... they felt that, 'We woz robbed'. It was this unarticulated feeling of disappointment that in part later enabled some people even to entertain the notion that Gaitskell had been bumped-off by the KGB to make way for Wilson. This notion wasn't entertained in NW1 but there was a feeling that Wilson had been suspiciously quick to take advantage of the Profumo affair. Cui bono notions were in the air. Perhaps the Soviets had arranged it for Wilson's political benefit? If so, what did that say about Wilson? Remember that Peter Wright knew Gaitskell slightly, and admired him. Golitsyn's little fantasy found some disturbing echoes even in the more liberal corners of Britain. Among Ayer's other close ...

The Radcliffe Tribunal had reported in 1962, devoting a whole section to the Civil Service staff associations and trade unions, expressing concern at the number of communists and communist sympathisers holding positions in the unions;(119) and his administration was being afflicted by the espionage scandals of George Blake and Vassell- and the Profumo Affair which Macmillan apparently believed was part of a communist conspiracy the bring him down.(120) Catholic Action?
