111. 'Conspiracy Theories' and Clandestine Politics [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... one another, to accomplish various specific but limited political objectives. No sensible person would claim, for example, that the Soviet secret police has not been involved in a vast array of covert operations since the establishment of the Soviet Union, or that international front groups controlled by the Russian Communist Party have not systematically engaged in worldwide penetration and propaganda campaigns. It is nonetheless true that scholars have often hastened to deny the existence of genuine conspiratorial plots, without making any effort whatsoever to investigate them, simply because such schemes fall outside their own realm of knowledge and experience or - even worse - directly challenge their sometimes naive conceptions about how the world functions. They do exist If ...

... recently released papers.(1 ) Below I present some of this new material with comments of mine in square brackets. All the emphases are mine. In the second line of the introduction the author (or authors) states: 'Its creation was prompted by the desire of Ministers in Mr Atlee's Labour government to devise means to combat Communist propaganda'. [So there is the line of this study: it was the politicians who ordered it.] But ten lines later we find this. 'Within the Foreign Office.....IRD evolved from plans drawn up in 1946. It took some time, however, for officials to convince Ministers. ' It did ...

... in Ireland, other agencies within the intelligence community in the United Kingdom believed that unorthodox methods and techniques were required in the war. The intervention of these groupings, which included Special Branch, military intelligence, MI5 and MI6, was uncoordinated, Much has been written about that period, some of it honest journalism, but most of it propaganda inspired by the terrorists and their supporters....

... Lambton, a lecturer at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, had suggested in a conversation with a Foreign Office official 'covert means... to undermine the position of Mr. Moussadek' and that the 'ideal man to do it would be Dr. Zaehner', an Oxford lecturer who had been 'extremely successful in covert propaganda in 1944' in Iran.(31) Zaehner was swiftly despatched to Iran by the Labour government to aid the fall of Musaddiq, for which he was provided with considerable sums of money.(32) After the failure of the oil negotiations the main British negotiator advised the Shah that the 'only solution' was 'a strong government ...

... weapon, which he pointed in the direction of the watchers. They, thinking that he had seen them and was about to shoot, opened fire and killed him. Clearly the dead man had been a member of the IRA; but he was only sixteen, and probably a low-grade operator. The IRA opened up a vociferous propaganda barrage, producing pictures taken seven or eight years earlier, when the youth was singing in a choir, and presenting us as having killed a choirboy (p . 315). This is a complete travesty. De la Billiere's account is thoroughly pernicious, especially in view of the fact that it is quite likely that many of the ...

The propaganda organisations of domestic capital restarted, though without the frenzy which had marked the post 1918 period. Their big issue was the threat of nationalisation of companies. The so-called Mr Cube Campaign of 1949/50, against the possibility of the nationalisation of the sugar industry, spent an estimated 250,000 in that year.(44) The campaign had been jointly organised by the sugar company, Tate and Lyle ...

... for the British state. Tom Bower's otherwise excellent book on Sir Dick White and SIS contains only one (unindexed) reference to the department. With IRD under sporadic investigation since 1978, the British state has fallen back to the position where, if pushed, it would acknowledge that IRD did use 'grey', i.e . trueish propaganda, as well as the straightforward, 'white', true variety. Among the handful of academics interested in IRD, this is also now the current consensus view. But it does not explain why, as Lucas and Morris ask in their conclusions, 'the records of an organisation, ostensibly existing only to provide "information", [ ...

... Britain.(129) Crozier became a founder member of the National Association for Freedom (NAFF), whose launch was timed to coincide with publication of the dystopian disinformation in The Collapse of Democracy by his ally and colleague at ISC, Robert Moss. The unfortunately acronymed NAFF was a gathering of the anti-subversive and pro-capital propaganda groups such as Aims of Industry, and, almost immediately became the major focus of the British Right. It absorbed the remnants of the 1974/5 civilian militias, and began series of psy-war projects against the left and the unions which prefigured much of what was to come in the Thatcher government.(130) Shield ...

... the 1970s. (The Information Policy Unit there looks increasingly like IRD's last stand.) The rest of the state's information and diplomatic services involved in the insurgencies frequently objected to this line, sometimes successfully. Quite why the rest of Whitehall put up with IRD's incompetent meddling until 1976 remains a mystery: Carruther's account of the politics of official propaganda does not get that deep. Anybody interested in IRD - or the wider issues of propaganda in British counter-insurgency policies - will find important new material here. A short version of this, concentrating on the IRD sections of the book, is 'A Red Under Every Bed? Anti-Communist Propaganda and Britain's Response to Colonial Insurgency ...
