There really was a 'clockwork orange',once...The election of a Labor
government under Harold Wilson in 1964 caused deep-seated hostility in the
American and British intelligence communities. The Daily Mirror tycoon
Cecil King - a long-time MI5 agent - made it clear that he would publish
"anything MI5 might care to leak" - part of his "coup" which he was
convinced would bring down the Labor government.
Harold Wilson was in fact a social democrat of moderate political views,
fully committed to continued membership of NATO and the retention of
Britain's nuclear forces, and he was a staunch anti-Communist. Nonetheless,
many extreme right-wing intelligence officers viewed Wilson as a dangerous
socialist. Wilson's predecessor, Hugh Gaitskell, had died of a rare
tropical disease, lupus disseminate, following his return from a visit to
Moscow. Certain paranoid MI5 officers were convinced that Gaitskell had
been murdered by the KGB to get power for Wilson, who was a Soviet agent. A
secret plot, code-named Clockwork Orange, was hatched to discredit Wilson
and the Labor Party.
