41. ...MI5 goes on forever [Lobster #26 (Dec 1993)]
... politics That covert role is one of the things fleetingly glimpsed in MI5's pamphlet The Security Service (36 pages, 4.95 from HMSO). In the page and a half long 'Outline history of the Security Service' we find this: 'The atmosphere of Cold War allegations also lay behind the highly publicised claims of the former officer Peter Wright that the Service had plotted to undermine the former Prime Minister Harold Wilson. A vigorous internal enquiry failed to produce any evidence to substantiate these claims, and Wright himself subsequently admitted that they were false. ' This is a nice illustration of the drafting skill which is so valued in Whitehall. In the first place, Wright never did ...

... is told about 'an intellectually weakened organisation no longer prepared to take Marxist-Leninist influences seriously. Too much time and resources were devoted to trailing foreign spies (which, it was argued, could be left to the police Special Branch) and too little to domestic subversion. ' This is the exact opposite of the picture given by Peter Wright on p. 359 of Spycatcher, of the 1970s expansion of the counter-subversive F-branch at the expense of counter-espionage K branch. But there are lots of things missing. This is the list I compiled on first reading. Missing are: his failed Freedom Blue Cross venture; his role in James Goldsmith's Now ...

... 5, fourth column, if you want to check. About 10% of my correspondents stick sellotape all over their envelopes. I asssume they are doing this because of Peter Wright's comments in Spycatcher (p . 45) that MI5 never found a way to surreptitiously open letters sealed in this way. What people may have forgotten is that Wright then continued, 'In those cases, MI5 took a decision as to whether to open the letter and destroy it, or send it on in an obviously opened state. ' In my view it isn't worth the effort trying to defeat the state's agencies at their games. You will always lose. Taping up letters simply announces that you ...

... it spent in Spain. A few names are named -- but 40 years on, who gives a toss? Well, rumour has it, the British state for one. They tried to suppress this (or was that also marketing bullshit?) -- presumably for the handful of pages in which Bristow expresses his support for Peter Wright and (inconclusively) discusses Burgess, Philby, Blunt, Thomas Harris etc etc. For Bristow knew them all and harbours suspicions about Guy Liddell, Roger Hollis and David Footman. But that's about all there is. Finally, this book's dust jacket must be a contender for the prize for most inaccurate jacket ever written. It begins ...

... truly the timescale, dare I say that fifty years is long enough to inculcate a culture? Couldn't it be that we have as a product of this culture (and attracted to it, indeed) a collection of what may be adequately described as 'nasty bastards'? People who behave with as much regard for law and democracy as Peter Wright, but who chose coarser methods? ' The trouble with forming such a close relationship with his subject as Dorril has done is that some of its uglier facets can be obscured by his meticulous concern for evidence. That same evidence may well bury rather than inspire the campaign for reforms he espouses. The Matrix Churchill affair, I think ...

... half a page, for example, about George Wigg's fantasies of military action during the Rhodesian crisis in the sixties. At its heart is a long account of the negotiations leading up to the Rhodesia-Zimbabwe deal between the Patriotic Front and the Thatcher government in 1979. Predictably, Dickie fails to tell the reader that, according to Peter Wright, the British government's negotiating position was facilitated more than somewhat by MI5 bugging all the rooms used by the various African delegations. Apostasy!In Lobster 24 , prolific Canadian writer on the JFK thing, Scott Van Wynsberghe, delivered himself of a large blast of discontent with the shoddy nature of much of the JFK assassination research.

... motivated. Ambition We don't know the scale of MI5's ambitions. Some of MI5 Director-General Rimington's comments in her Dimbleby Lecture suggested that MI5 has come to believe it could be, and should be, ubiquitous in its assessment of risk and prevention of subversion and terrorism; that far from being the threat to democracy described by Wallace, Wright, Massiter et al, MI5, as Mrs Rimington put it in, 'enhances' democracy.(5 ) Even if this isn't rejected out of hand at the outset, we don't know enough about the extent of MI5's domestic operations to decide if MI5 has been or could ever be ubiquitous.

For Bower not only had access to White's memoir of the period, with White to vouch for him, he spoke to 'dozens' of former officers, mostly SIS, all of whom have broken their 'duty of confidentiality', or whatever the exact form of words it was that the Thatcher government came up with against Peter Wright. In the last chapter Bower reveals - confirms what some had suspected, or heard whispered - that White had been among those former officers who had been leaking information through the Thatcher years. This is one of the central paradoxes of the Thatcher period: while the Tories tried to clamp down on information about the spooks, there was ...
