51. At Her Majesty's Secret Service, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... churning the old files. The later chapters are more interesting and, as befits a former Conservative MP, he has a serious go at the latest 'C', John Scarlett, for his relationship with the Blair government and the fiasco over Iraqi WMDs. He also drops some hints about blemishes on Scarlett's career which can only have come from SIS personnel. The core of 'West's' thesis is this: 'SIS rarely embarked on a project without the fullest ministerial approval' (p . 17). And the only instance he allows in which they didn't was the 'Buster' Crabbe affair in the 1950s. This is the official line of the new, open, website-building ...

... in this issue), is worth looking at. For the student of the British state there are some interesting things in this. In particular there is the curious business of the Met team getting access to MI6's data bases to research the various claims by former MI6 officer Richard Tomlinson that MI6 were involved. The nominated Operation Paget officers interviewed SIS personnel or examined databases and documentation for a total of 18 working days over a period of two months. ' (p .753) This must be the first time that outsiders have been allowed to do this; and whether the process was real or managed by SIS, its existence is a measure of how seriously this refutation of ...

53. Lobbying [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... i.e . 'lobbying' can be a euphemism for corruption. I have always believed that the absence of lobbying can be one of the best indicators of corruption.(16) The prime minister defended his actions by invoking an example of the 'bigger' view versus the 'narrow'. A small part of this was undermined by an SIS corrective leak (a lobbying tactic) to The Guardian in January this year and denied in the same newspaper the following day.(17) Leaking to a newspaper is part of lobbying's arsenal and can be in the public interest.(18) Prior to an imminent change in prime minister, it can also be about positioning, ...

... and US tourism chiefs meet in the shadow of the fifth anniversary of 11 September to discuss why the numbers of overseas tourists to the US has dropped.( [5 ] ) British spook heritage PR As part of their PR strategy, two of Britain s spook employers are producing certain bestsellers: public sector 100th anniversary accounts of MI5 and SIS.( [6 ] )Moving their civil servants away from the mythology, they are positioning them possibly as part of spook turf wars as mainstream parts of our island story, which they are. It is essential for the state to keep control (PR) of these histories because openness and demands for change can impact on existing ...

55. Feedback [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... ? Coup plots had been tried before and failed since the resistance was penetrated by the SS (and in some cases it was the SS, as shown by Schellenberg's constant dickering with the allies and Himmler's attempt to seize power at the end of the war). The British and Americans could never be sure who they were talking to: SIS had had its fingers badly burned in the Venlo episode of November 1939 when what looked like a bona fide coup against Hitler turned into a massive embarrassment, with the British agents who were negotiating with the 'resistance' being carted off to imprisonment in Germany. SIS did provide some logistical support to the plotters at times (even the 20 ...

... were improper deeds afoot - something that has been shown to be relatively improbable - then legislative oversight is highly unlikely to detect them. ' This may or may not be so; but it is virtually guaranteed to be so if the legislators refuse to talk to those with knowledge of 'improper deeds'. As for the British system: with SIS, the authors tell us: 'a Foreign Office advisor....runs the rule over proposed operations before they are mounted or - if they are particularly sensitive - submitted to the foreign secretary for approval. ' (p . 68) Do you believe either the FCO or its minister approved the SIS plans to pay a Libyan ...

... a minister also writing letters to selected Tory MPs. When we first met, GKY gave me two files 'write-ins' and 'parliamentary correspondence'. Later he gave me a list of MPs (about 20) and a list of correspondents (about 70). The only correspondent whose name I recall is Bee Carthew, another former SIS officer. Generally 'correspondents' were Tory Party members active in various parts of the country. I would circulate a draft which the correspondents would use as a basis for their own letter to MP/Minister/PM etc. They would send us a copy of any response they received. GKY gave general guidance as to what was wanted ...

... human need. This might seem a long way from the activities of the CIA in the post-war era but Simon Matthews' interesting article in Lobster 44 ( 'Argentina, the Nazis and the original Third Way') allows us to make the connection. During the 1920s and 1930s, the Catholic Church, with the help of SIS, had established Intermarium, an organisation dedicated to fighting Communism in eastern Europe. During the war some of the Nazis' leading collaborators, such as Petain in France, Admiral Horthy in Hungary and Anton Pavelic in Croatia, attempted to remodel politics and economics in their countries on authoritarian, anti-Communist and anti-materialist lines. ...

... 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 ...

And so the Islamic Fighting Group, our former enemy's enemy, is our enemy. Libya's new status as 'friend' is visible elsewhere. Con Coughlin, often a guide to the thinking within SIS, commented in The Sunday Telegraph, 'Ratcheting up to the next war' on 9 October, on the British policy of 'kow-towing to the Iranians'. Wrote Coughlin: 'As part of this policy, the British government took the shameful decision to drop its claim that the Iranians had masterminded the Lockerbie bombing.... ...
