11. PR, espionage and language [Lobster #50 (Winter 2005/6)]
... but little noticed speech earlier this year. ( [5 ] ) With his eye fixed on the far horizon (China ?) he was quoted as saying: 'We do not have stakeholders; we do not have corporate social responsibility; we simply have mutual advantage..... '. His comments have specific meaning for SIS: capitalism is the ideology it promotes and protects. The public have no means of knowing whether the organisation's role is to search for capitalism's buried bodies or be accessories to what-ever crimes may be committed. As a former SIS spook himself, anything that the high profile Lord Browne says informs the citizen, including possible future SIS ...

12. Two views of Dorril (Book review) [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... her career started during the Second World War when she was at the British Embassy in Teheran. Although Dorril does not say so, her students included the late Alexis Forter (see below). It is a pity that Dorril did not build up his 'walk-ons' to include, for example, the lawyers and accountants used by SIS to provide the administrative infrastructure for many of their businessmen assets. The late lawyer Hugh Sinclair, who had distinguished SIS family connections, comes to mind. Dorril does mention lawyer Michael Palmer who, and in a different context, hit the headlines eighteen months ago. There are, of course, gaps. For example, Dorril writes ...

13. The Big Breach (Book Review) [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... original hardback version is slightly different though I have not been told in which ways. Notwithstanding all that, here are the bits and pieces I found of most interest on reading the book version. In one section pp.48-49 (which also appeared in the Sunday Times on 4 February) Tomlinson describes how his intake of new SIS recruits were briefed by the then SIS chief McColl. One of the new recruits put the obvious question: ' "Sir, why do we have an intelligence service at all? There are countries more important on the world stage, with much more powerful economies, who have only small or nonexistent external intelligence gathering operations. Japan or ...

14. Historical Notes [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... intermediary between Britain and Germany in the abortive peace feeler put out by Foreign Secretary Halifax and his number two, Butler, in June 1940. De Courcy, who had persuaded Butler of the need to explore some kind of armistice with Germany, knew Prytz, probably as a result of his activities on behalf of Stewart Menzies, Chief of SIS. As is well known the talks were stopped by Churchill who threatened to lock up both Halifax and Butler. De Courcy himself had to lie low and found himself under suspicion again when the Hess affair blew up in May of the following year. These two events undermined de Courcy's previous good standing in the British establishment and he was ...

In short chapters Smith attempts potted histories of MI5, SIS, signals and military intelligence. These are quite well done, but covering half a century in 20 pages, say, the chapters are barely more than sketches. (The Information Research Department gets a page!) Every once in a while we get a detailed chunk: but who needs another version of the Cambridge spies (Philby ...

... . Before reading Souza in Lobster it had never occurred to me to wonder how this works: how do children learn not to blow daddy's cover? (With difficulty.) What levels of deceit are required? (Many.) How many friends are sacrificed? (Many.) There are quite detailed portraits of three of her father's SIS case officers. Two are identified, one remains under a pseudonym; two were the kind of urbane, civilised people we are led to believe work for Her Majesty's Secret Service; one, the late Alexis Forte, was an obnoxious Russian racist. There is much incidental detail on SIS methods in London in the 1970s and 80s, ...

17. Spook PR [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... it. The means by which they do so include tactics such as photo-opportunities, branding, viral marketing and local spokespersons. These tactics have been used to devastating effect by al-Qaida. Its communications campaign has been textbook - identical to that mounted by any multinational - and has taken years to put in place. Had the SIS known anything about PR (which, given its corporate clients, it ought to have done) it would have spotted al-Qaida's programme long ago, and known how to interpret it. In consequence, it would have anticipated where al-Qaida's agenda was headed; recognised the build-up to what in commercial terms would be ...

18. The view from the Bridge [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... MI6 by Steve Dorril, in the first batch of what eventually became the Who's Who of the British Secret State. Though I cannot remember why Dorril thought this and though there is nothing specific in Ashdown's known career which says 'intelligence', the career move from Special Boat Squadron to Foreign Office is pretty obvious.(1 ) The alleged SIS affiliation seems to have stuck, however. The doyen of British political profile writers, Andrew Roth, wrote in the Guardian (19 March 2001), sixteen years after Dorril, that Ashdown 'is popularly supposed to have been serving with MI6 in Geneva under the cover of being the first secretary to the UK mission to the UN. ...

In the recollection of a former MI6 officer of the period, IRD was involved in 'some of the more dubious intelligence operations which characterised the early years of the cold war. '69 Former Ambassador Hilary King was told by a former SIS officer who had worked in Germany after the war trying to estimate Soviet bloc tank strength, that IRD circulated a paper on the subject overestimating that strength by a factor of 40.70 When the SIS officer complained about the inaccuracy of the estimate he was told by an IRD official 'what does it matter old boy as long as the ...
