21. The view from the bridge [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... heard of Dave Spart? RR: You keep trying to patronise me and it always misses. The reference to Dave Spart simply tells me you have never read Lobster. Secret servants Red faces at NATO where the official NATO Website carried for two months an English translation of an article, which had originally appeared in Croatia, which identified four SIS officers. (1) This was the comic climax of a series of stories about SIS's activities in the states of the former Yugoslavia.(2) The exposure of SIS's officers and operations there began in February, with the identification in the Serbian media of Anthony Monckton, a senior SIS officer, who, with two others, ...

... episodes, including Thalidomide, the Hitler diaries (in which he was blameless, I hasten to add), and, most famous of all, the investigation of Philby. His work for the Insight team on Philby was the beginning of a career in which he has repeatedly brushed up against the secret warriors of Langley, Virginia, and SIS. The revelation here in respect of the Philby affair is his discovery, years later, that that Dennis Hamilton, the editor-in-chief of Times newspapers at the time of the Philby investigation, was routinely passing all the journalists' work on Philby to SIS; and all the retired SIS officers interviewed by the Insight journalists were reporting back. ...

... the 'fathers' of IRD, talks exclusively of anti-communist activities.6 8 IRD eventually had representatives in all British Embassies abroad. 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 Labour government ...

24. Steady as she goes: Labour and the spooks [Lobster #35 (Summer 1998)]
... penetration of the British labour movement has been far more extensive than the British Left realises. This is why we can't see our files; and why the word 'redacted'- meaning blacked-out- will never enter the political discourse of Britain the way it has in the United States. Robin Cook's dilemma With Robin Cook, nominally in charge of SIS, as Foreign Secretary, the picture is different. I remember Cook in the late 1970s making waves about the activities of Special Branch. Cook is no Blairite. Cook hasn't bought the globalisation-is-wonderful line, and thus the Blairites have to keep him as far away from domestic politics as possible: hence Foreign Secretary. This means that Blair ...

25. Brands and Britannia [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... conduct of those operating within a niche is at odds with the standards their client in this case, the British public sets, and by which the citizen judges its rivals, the reputation collapses.(6 )Spook reputation management is of consequence if retention/recruitment of honourable and skilled personnel is an objective.(7) In this SIS appears to have fallen at the first hurdle, committing the niche employer's cardinal PR error of allowing leadership admission/justification for the latest wrongdoing (torture/rendition), to tarnish the reputation of all, not the few. Wording that could have enabled spinners to project beyond the crimes could have been insertion of phrases such as 'fierce ...

... nocturnal activities on the streets of Wellington somehow got into the hands of Conservative leader Muldoon. There was the "Think tank' affair, in which the newspaper Truth concocted a conspiracy fantasy in which Labour was going to nationalise all the financial institutions of the country. There was the Freeman-Jays affair, in which Rohan Jays, a supposed NZ SIS man (who we now know to have been MI6) passed a police report from SIS files to Auckland businessman Paul Freeman, who embarassed Labour Prime Minister Bill Rowling by handing him the papers in public. (Freeman has been most recently sighted as an arms broker for Colonel Rabuka of Fiji.) There was the O'Brien affair, ...

27. Spies and children [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 41) Summer 2001 Last| Contents| Next Issue 41 Spies and children Corinne Souza Espionage is two things- a career and a lifestyle. Both can be wildly exciting. Those who deny this have never been spies. Children born to SIS agents enjoy this lifestyle which can have many advantages. The home environment is usually stimulating, cosmopolitan and informed. There can also be one-off bonus such as acquisition of a British passport. for a non-UK citizen. If a child's parents are spies, the child is usually an active participant in espionage at every stage of his or her development. S/he grows up with spies, whether these ...

28. The View from the Bridge [Lobster #30 (Dec 1995)]
... offers as examples the late Claire Sterling (who recycled all the Bulgarians killed the Pope nonsense) and Herbert Romerstein, laterly of USIS. It was Mr. Romerstein who accused me of recycling Soviet disinformation, and who, I would guess, is the source of the rumours in US intelligence circles that the KGB were funding Lobster. Another SIS memoir SIS buffs might like to check the Journal of Contemporary History, July 1995, in which former SIS officer Kenneth Benton is given 50 pages to describe his early years (1937-43) in SIS. Dr Christopher Andrew provides a brief introduction to the piece in which he outlines Benton's SIS career in the period not covered by Benton's extract ...

29. Briefly [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... reality intrudes too little. In Dead Men Don't Eat Lunch (self-published) Geoffrey Gilson describes of his attempt to unravel the life of Hugh Simmonds, his business partner (and political rival in the Tory Party). A solicitor, Simmonds died having apparently misappropriated millions from his clients' accounts. He claimed to have been a member of SIS and Gilson, after much stumbling around the interface between Tory Party, SIS and the arms industry, thinks he has found that Simmonds was using clients' funds to run SIS ops in the Middle East. En route, via consultations with several mediums (a first, perhaps in a political investigation?), he meets a cavalcade ...

... to build a coherent picture of what actually happened. As far as BMARC was concerned there was 'no evidence' that the government knew of covert defence sales to Iraq (maybe because, as Scott himself notes, some relevant files and papers had gone missing.) Investigating Supergun, Scott asks us to believe that twelve officials, some in SIS, sat on information provided by a British company which believed it was making missile parts for Iraq. This was in June 1988. No action was taken until late in 1989. All this at a time when SIS was known to be concerned about Sadam Hussein's efforts to develop a capability in weapons of mass destruction. It is hard ...
