41. The British Watergate [Lobster #13 (Apr 1987)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 13) April 1987 Last| Contents| Next Issue 13 The British Watergate This is the press release issued to the media with Lobster 11. (April 1986) Embargoed until 3pm, April 30th Something very strange happened in British politics almost a decade ago. A Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, and the journalist with the closest links to the British intelligence services, Chapman Pincher, both said that elements of MI5 had been trying to bring down the Labour Government during 1974-76- and nothing happened. There was no serious investigation by British journalists, the Labour Party or the Labour Government. In Wilson, MI5 and the rise of Thatcher: ...

(c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 46) Winter 2003 Last| Contents| Next Issue 46 From Bevan to Blair: 50 years reporting from the political front line Geoffrey Goodman London: Pluto Press, 2003 hb £18.99 As a conventional political memoir, this is quite an interesting read. The big figures march by: Bevan, Wilson, Callaghan, Healey, Robert Maxwell; and there are interesting stories about all of them. The best anecdote has Denis Healey, as Chancellor in the House of Commons in 1976, under attack from his own benches during a debate on public expenditure, turning round at the despatch box and shouting to his Labour critics: 'And you can ...

... days. Whoever was tapping our phones heard lots of laughter. I taped a long interview with Fred and Colin that day which appeared as a double-page spread in Tribune- and then the first dribs and drabs began to leak out of Australia about a book by a former MI5 officer called Peter Wright in which he apparently mentioned plotting against the Wilson government; and my telephone began to ring. Lots of journalists wanted me to explain the story. And no wonder, looking back on it. The Wallace narrative was very difficult to become adept at- even if you believed that the story was true. Fred and Colin, with their tales of covert operations in Northern Ireland, ...

44. Willy Brandt: the "Good German" [Lobster #22 (Nov 1991)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 22) November 1991 Last| Contents| Next Issue 22 Willy Brandt: the "Good German" Stephen Dorril One neglected aspect of the plotting against Harold Wilson and the Labour Governments of the 1970s was the fact that it took place while the social democrat governments of Australia, New Zealand and West Germany-- and possibly Canada-- were also being subjected to destabilisation campaigns, with the some of the same characters playing a role in these machinations. David Leigh writes that the Brandt Affair "had involved at least four of the West's Intelligence agencies, working in partnership with each other-- the West Germans, the French, MI5 ...

45. Was there a 'communist threat'? [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... no evidence to support this claim and, in its absence, think we can reasonably attribute the claims to cynical manipulation of the 'red card' during a period of intense domestic difficulty for the Attlee government. 'Cynical manipulation of the red card' has often been the description of the second occasion, during the 1966 seamen's strike, when Harold Wilson made his notorious comments in the House of Commons about the role of the CPGB in the strike, and actually named CPGB members said to be active in it. This incident deserves examination. The 1966 seamen's strike There are two issues here, only one of which, whether Wilson should have said what he did, usually gets discussed ...

It is a belting good read, such a good read, in fact, that I had got as far as 1967 before I realized that there was no mention of Lord Cromer, the Governor of the Bank of England between 1964 and 66, and the Labour government's number one enemy in that period. Hang on a minute, I thought, and consulted the index. No entry for Cromer. Back to the text I went. No, not ...

47. Wallace on Pincher on Wallace [Lobster #21 (May 1991)]
... supporting Harold Wilson's claims that he was the victim of operations by MI5. Unfortunately for Pincher, as a man of the political right, by 1987 he was being quoted by people like us against MI5, in support of the allegations of Colin Wallace. Pincher has attempted to solve this dilemma by retracting his pre-1987 claims about MI5 plots against Wilson. He began this in his The Spycatcher Affair:a Web of Deception, and continues in this new book. The Truth About Dirty Tricks also contains a staggeringly inaccurate chapter on the Colin Wallace Affair. After a life-time of recycling official 'leaks', Pincher was a sitting-duck when some of his old contacts in the Ministry of Defence ...

Arms exports were good for the balance of payments and domestic employment; and guaranteed the security of the sea lanes around the Cape. The Wilson governments of 1964-70 had inherited the agreement from the Conservatives but had never been happy about it and by the time Labour left office exports of arms to South Africa had stopped. When the Tories returned, however, their first instinct was to resume the practice. And indeed sales did recommence- but not on a very grand scale. ...
