1. Blair Inc (Book review) (Winter 2015) [Lobster #70 (Winter 2015) (free)] [Free Article]
... Blair Inc. Francis Beckett, David Hencke and Nick Kochan London: John Blake, 2015, £20.00, h/b O ne of the two reported contributions Tony Blair made to Labour's 2015 election campaign was a speech in support of the European Union. In April the former leader said: The referendum will, for the first time since we joined Europe after years of trying unsuccessfully to do so, put exit on the agenda. ' Most Britons were not electors in 1975 and so have never had a say on what was then the Common Market and is now the European Union. This perceived illegitimacy was acknowledged by the Conservatives, Greens and UKIP who ...

This question subsequently occurred to a growing number of Labour Party members and the answer they came up with saw tens of thousands of them becoming ex-Labour Party members. More important, of course was not why Blair himself ...

(1 ) Blair had always been sympathetic to Israel, had shared chambers with Board of Deputies of British Jews President Eldred Tabachnik, (2 ) and had joined the Labour Friends of Israel on becoming an MP.

At 755 pages, with 40 chapters and 3000 plus footnotes, the book is neatly divided into chapters on either specific historical periods or significant individuals. The picture that emerges of Blair is striking in its variance from much of his public image but not necessarily to his disadvantage. He is a rather more mundane figure than the PR machine would have us believe. Early Blair The PM had no ...

... The Blair Supremacy A study in the politics of Labour's party management Lewis Minkin Manchester University Press, 2014, 798 pp. Colin Challen Published seven years ago, Minkin's book has taken on a new relevance and I have been prompted to review it by two events. The first was the death of its author earlier this year; the second has been the recurrence of the doom' narrative of the Labour Party. This fatalistic style of thinking has reappeared following Labour's fairly dismal election results in May 2021, and its previous drubbing in the 2019 general election. Minkin must rank as one of the most important writers on Labour politics in recent times. He was not merely a ...

(c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 45) Summer 2003 Last | Contents | Next Issue 45 Harassing Robert Henderson In 1997 Robert Henderson, a retired civil servant, wrote to the then leader of the Opposition Tony Blair to ask for his help. Eventually he wrote a dozen or so letters to Blair and Cherie Booth. Blair then tried to have him prosecuted but the legal authorities refused to act. Blair or someone close to him then set the tabloids on him and he was smeared in the Daily Mirror (also used to smear the journalist Greg Palast) and Daily Record as a stalker and a racist. This was discussed in ...

8. Historical Notes [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... , broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on 15 June and 11 August this year. The story is instructive on two levels. First because it suggests that it may be wrong to claim that if Clinton or Gore had been in the White House there would have been no war and secondly for what it tells us about British foreign policy in the Blair era. Let's look at the details. The autumn of 1997 saw deteriorating relations between the USA and Iraq. The issue was Iraq's unwillingness to open to UN inspectors all sites where there was suspected research and development of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Clinton complained that Saddam Hussein was not co-operating with the UN and argued ...

... print as quickly as possible. Thus has the demise of Labour in May 2010 been marked. The accounts that have appeared include the absurdly self-centred, stating-the-obvious-at-all- times tales of Peter Mandelson; the fantastic, optimistic and daytime TV-oriented (and thus immensely popular) narrative of Tony Blair; Jonathan Powell's treatise on Machiavellianism; and the diarised compendium of sad little stories from Chris Mullin, as he crept away from the political stage after 2005. A particularly interesting work, though, is that written by Deborah Mattinson, a major courtier to New Labour and an observer of many of its foibles and obsessions over 15 years ...

Confessions of a Labour loyalist Sailing Close To The Wind: Reminiscences Dennis Skinner and Kevin Maguire London: Quercus, £20.00, h/b In his extremely useful memoir of the Blair government, Adam Boulton notes that the unlikely figure of Dennis Skinner had been recruited into Blair's big tent'. He goes on to comment on how Skinner had been surprisingly cuddly towards his middle-class leader throughout Blair's years'.1 Mark Seddon, the former editor of Tribune, also comments in his memoir on Skinner's good relationship with Blair, who would actually have him round to Downing Street on a regular basis'.2 He was less impressed when he learned that ...
