Former UK Labour Party leader John Smith was linked to the security services? Was Mandelson spying on the Communist Party?


Was former Labour Party leader John Smith linked to the security services?

Some people in the intelligence community claim that a firm called Hakluyt was started by MI6 officers to carry out "deniable" operations.

Maurice Chittenden and Nicholas Rufford, in The Sunday Times, 19 June 2001, wrote about Hakluyt and its links to the spy services.

Baroness Smith, the widow of John Smith, the late Labour leader, was a director of Hakluyt.



Extract from a speech to the Labour Reform/Chartist Conference July 2002 by Robin Ramsay:

When John Smith became leader of the Labour Party he was a member of the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group: the steering committee, the inner core. He got Gordon Brown invited to the 1991 meeting, incidentally...

Who was John Smith? Genial, whiskey-drinking Scots lawyer from the traditional Labour right. But also life-long chums with a senior MI6 officer, now Baroness Ramsay. Lady Smith, his widow, is now on the board of an MI6 front company.

He took on an advisor - Ed Balls, a Financial Times leader writer - an ideologist for globalisation, in effect - who learned some of his economics at Harvard . Like other Labour personnel, including Yvette Cooper MP, whom Balls later married, and David Miliband, head of Blair's policy unit, both now junior ministers, Balls had spent a year in America as a Kennedy Scholar.

Virtually all of the new Labour people have some connection to America and American money...

Tony Blair took the US government's free tour of the States in 1986 andtold his hosts that while officially a member of CND he supported the nuclear deterrent. He had joined the Labour Friends of Israel in 1983 when he got elected. While Shadow Home Secretary in 1994 Tony Blair took an Israeli government freebie holiday in Israel. On his return the number two at the Israeli embassy in London introduced him to Michael Levy - now Lord Levy - one of the top fund-raisers for Jewish charities.



At Cryptone, Gordon Logan wrote:

I was disturbed to read some weeks ago that the late John Smith’s widow had been given a job with Hakluyt. A smoking gun if ever there was one. Hakluyt is an MI6 company, and it is difficult not to conclude that Mrs Smith was placed there for purposes of surveillance. There was speculation after John’s death that he had been poisoned. The Americans had been cultivating Blair, Mandelson and Brown since the eighties, and Blair was too promising, and manipulable, for them to pass up. Meta Ramsey must have ‘failed’ John


Was Peter Mandelson used by the security services to spy on the Communist Party?

"Peter Mandelson began political life as a member of the Communist Party, soon "seeing the light" and instead getting involved with the CIA/MI6-financed Socialist International youth wing and the Labour Party, through which he rose in parallel with his experience working at London Weekend Television with other A-list regulars like John Birt and Michael Maclay, now public mouthpiece of Hakluyt, the private sector spook outfit run by a bunch of "ex" MI6 types including the widow of ex-Labour leader John Smith.

"This sort of background and connections makes Mandelson very useful in the sort of corridors-and-alleyways diplomacy and networking that is the real substance of international relations and intelligence gathering. [....] If Mandelson is indeed the suspect, then the damage this could cause may fatally wound Blair."
