|A spooky UK front group to try to oppose CND.|
The Coalition for Peace Through Security was a apooky front group for the UK deep state keen to try to oppose the growing support for nuclear disarmament. Its name may have been derived from a similar US group, the Coalition for Peace Through Strength which was started in 1978 by the American Security Council.
The group was founded by Edward Leigh and Julian Lewis (both members of The 61 & Le Cercle). Other staff included Tony Kerpel and, for its first year only, Francis Holihan. It was featured in Lobster#3, which stated that the group worked closely with the Institute for the Study of Conflict, the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Centre for Policy Studies.
The group was active in the early to mid 1980s.
