11. No smoke without fire? [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... book of the despairing nature of life in the landscape of Thatcher's Britain with the emergence of a huge unskilled underclass. [11] Denning wrote this judgement as early as 1946. He had a lengthy record of interventions on matters concerning sexuality, voted against homosexual decriminalisation in the House of Lords and conducted the cover-up inquiry in the Profumo case. [12] In Thatcher & Sons: A Revolution in Three Acts (2006) Simon Jenkins comments that one effect of the Thatcher, Major and Blair years has been the running down of local and regional democracy and the enormous growth in the unelected power of the Treasury. [13] The Conservatives had a unit at ...

12. Re: [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... there are unfortunate individuals such as Captain Robert Nairac (simply described as 'army officer') and Stephen Ward ( 'osteopath and scapegoat'). The entry for the latter is one of the few where the author eschews the studied objectivity of the majority of the work, his final paragraph reading: 'Ward was in fact incidental to the Profumo episode: he was a sacrificial offering. The exorcism of scandal in high places required the fa ade of his conviction on vice charges. ' The entries are scrupulously researched judging by the wealth of references on offer in the footnotes. These cover not simply books and journal articles, but also written, film and sound archives. There's ...

13. SISies: MI6 & A Life: A. J. Ayer (Book reviews) [Lobster #40 (Winter 2000/1)]
... 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 ...

14. The Liar: the fall of Jonathan Aitken (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... Aitken is connected to his curious self-abnegation towards Arab royalty from whom, after circa 1976, he was making huge amounts of commission brokering arms deals. But, on the other hand, the Tory MP - public schoolboy - sexual deviant/fetishist figure is scarcely fresh news. Didn't we hear all about this around the time of Profumo? The authors make a big noise about the general immorality of the arms trade and arms manufacturers. What they don't probe, in any great depth, are Aitken's unorthodox political connections. He was co-director, with Gerald James, of BMARC (the shippers of 'arms to Iraq'). Readers of James' memoir will ...

... 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 ...

16. Spy Master: The Betrayal of MI5 (Book review) [Lobster #31 (Jun 1996)]
... ' From this West daws this astonishing conclusion: 'His view that the arrival of Mao was the equivalent of Russia's winning China chimed exactly with Burgess's line, that Mao was the leader of a Russian-style Communism on a strict Leninist analysis, only carrying it one stage further. ' (p . 214) In the section on the Profumo Affair, West states:'[Stephen] Ward was being used by MI5 but, more importantly, the fact that he was introduced to Ivanov in the way that he was establishes that if Hollis arranged it then he did not tell his junior officers in MI5. ' (p . 222) (emphasis added) 'If Hollis ...

17. Common Cause and IRIS [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... the 'communist threat'. 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?There is a distinct Catholic tinge to Common Cause and IRIS. Hollis and Carter, the company which published the Common Cause Bulletin, was a Catholic publishing house. Catholics among the leading figures in Common Cause included chairs ...

18. JFK, the FBI and the Cambridge phone call [Lobster #30 (Dec 1995)]
... COULD NOT REACH [FBI?] REP THIS MORNING. [British] STAND READY ASSIST IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE ON INVESTIGATIONS HERE. What were the 'similar phone calls of strangely coincidental nature persons received in this country over past year, particularly in connection with Dr Ward case'? We know of the call in the Stephen Ward/John Profumo case that kick-started its public exposure,(2 ) but were there others, and what were the calls not connected with that scandal about? Of these we know nothing. I did some desultory research into the Cambridge call back around 1980 and spoke to a number of journalists who were working on the Cambridge Evening News in ...

... was being challenged by small groups in the trade unions who had no right to exert such power. ' Richard Marsh, Off the Rails, (Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1976) p. 133. Richard Crossman attributed much of 'the tremendous victory' and 'great triumph' to George Wigg, and described it as Wigg's biggest success since the Profumo affair. Crossman thought that Wilson and Wigg wanted to use the strike to 'discomfit the communists, not only in the seamen's union but in other unions as well. ' Richard Crossman, The Diaries of a Cabinet Minister, vol. 1, (Book Club Associates, London 1976), pp. 544 and 5. Of the ...

... 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 ...
