Lobster is a United Kingdom magazine interested primarily in the influence of intelligence and security services on politics and world trade, what it calls deep politics or parapolitics. It combines the examination of conspiracy theories and contemporary history. Lobster has appeared twice a year for 29 years, at first in 16-page A5 format, then as an A4 magazine. Despite being run on a shoestring, contributors include many academics and others (see list below) distinguished in their own fields. Since 2009 it has been published as a free downloadable PDF document.
According to the Hull Daily Mail, Lobster 'investigates government conspiracies, state espionage and the secret service.' In 1986 the magazine scooped mainstream media by uncovering the secret Clockwork Orange operation, implicated in trying to destabilise the British government. Colin Wallace, a former Northern Ireland army intelligence officer described how he had been instructed to smear leading UK politicians. Questions were asked in the House of Commons and an extended scandal ensued.
In 1989 Lobster published names of 1500 Brits said to be working in intelligence. The magazine was denounced in the House of Commons. The editors replied that all published details could be found in his local library. The magazine has also carried detailed analysis of fringe subjects such as UFOs and remote viewing.
