CELL CHARLOTTE CORDAY (1980)
Confirmation has been passed to us of the involvement in CPSA affairs of the agents of imperialism.
It has long been suspected that the CIA had infiltrated the Lubianka of Balham High Road, but only now has it been proven to PFLCPSA activists how deep is the infiltration, and at how high a level.
As is usual in such cases, the CIA involvement has been well disguised, but (as is also usual) their presence has been driven away by certain indiscretions of the flesh, resulting in the smacking of wrists.
The latest wrist to be smacked belongs to one Ray Shuttlebrick, ex- CPSA full-timer, ex Apex Branch Assistant Secretary, now to be found in a very opulent office suite in the American Embassy, Grosvenor Square London, W. 1. His job there is to monitor British trade union activities to assess those activities, and to compile reports on those activities for discussion by higher authorities, with recommendations as to future response."
The higher authorities to whom Shuttlecock reports are to be found in the CIA Headquarters, Langley, Virginia, USA.
In short, what Shuttlebum is paid to do is to spy on the British trade union movement, its activists, and its policies, and make the appropriate recommendations to the Company for future action against these.
This news is not too surprising to members of Unit 9 Cell Charlotte Corday who have been on the trail of Company Agents for some time. What is surprising, and alarming, is how Ray's Flying Shuttle came to be recruited, and trained.
No infiltrating CIA agent in the field is ever allowed to work alone, just in case there is a danger of being `turned'---they spy on one another. So, the Cell was faced with the question of who had been the Shuttle's minder at Balham, and who had been his spotter.
The following facts have emerged, and PPLCPSA supporters will find it easy to draw the correct conclusions.
1. Shuttlebrick went on a training tour of duty to the USA in 1978, while a member of the CPSA staff. The cover for this tour was an exchange visit with a trade unionist from Uncle Sam (G. Meany prop.) No return visit ever took place, and none is in fact envisaged.
2. The person at Balham who selected Fay Ray for the trip was one A. Graham. His recommendation to Washington on behalf of Shuttlebrain was couched in the most glowing of terms.
3. John Ellis (and wife) are lined up to have an all-expenses-paid tour to the USA, courtesy of one Ray Shuttleservice. He has told his masters how useful Mr. Ellis has been to him, and hinted broadly as to the ``mutually advantageous aspects of the trip.
4. The reason for Ray's a Laugh having his wrist slapped is not a million miles removed from his ongoing liaison with a PS at CPSA HQ. The said P.S has parentage described as Eastern European, and not the tight-lip is she.
The Ray of Sunshine's masters are keen that he goes home to his wife and child in Littlehampton at night, rather more often than is the case at the present time, though it is a matter of some conjecture as to whether his patient wife and child share this wish.
The Company have, however, instructed their errant knight to find a family home somewhat more convenient to Grosvenor Square, and are none too amused by his tardiness in complying with their wish, i.e. order.
5. Another member of the Graham/Baker Family who is doing very well is P. Thomason Esq. He has just purchased a large villa next to Park House for the sum of £47,000, paid in cash. When he eventually sells his existing house, he should be alright financially.
