1. Spooks and the EEC [Lobster #33 (Summer 1997)]
... (c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 33) Summer 1997 Last | Contents | Next Issue 33 Spooks and the EEC The CIA In a recent Witness Seminar' on the 1975 British referendum on entry into the European Economic Community (EEC), the Conservative MP, Sir Richard Body, who in 1975 was co-chair of the anti-EEC National Referendum Campaign, had this to say: At the very beginning of the campaign two CIA agents came to see me in the House of Commons. They were Anglophiles and they were very upset at the way their agency was going to interfere in the referendum campaign. They said a ...

... , who succeeded Harold Wilson as Prime Minister in 1970, is conventionally viewed as someone who began as Selsdon Man', a prototype of the later Thatcher Tory Party, then made his famous U-turn. This is half-true, at best. It is clear now that Heath had one overriding aim - British entry into the EEC - and everything else played second fiddle to that. In the first year and a half of his government he appeared to believe that the best way to prepare the British economy for entry into the EEC was a dose of competitition and freedom - the traditional Tory Party ideas of getting the government off the backs of the producers, reducing ...

... long-winded, pompous arsehole whose columns in the Guardian are mostly a waste of paper and ink. But he has his uses, notably as a mouthpiece for the Foreign Office. In this book he has revealed in infinitely greater detail than before the way the British Foreign Office conspired - yes: conspired - to get Britain into the EEC/EC/EU. This is a book the like of which the Europhobes and skeptics can hardly have dreamed would ever get written by a Europhile insider like Young - but here it is, chapter and verse on how it was done and by whom. I guess by calling this a blessed plot' Young thinks he is diminishing ...

... . Then, as now, the British Left was composed of a wide range of organisations, traditions and opinions. A significant number of these were, and remain, highly critical of European integration as it was set out in the 1958 Treaty of Rome. At that time Nye Bevan argued that the Common Market or European Economic Community (EEC) elevated the marketplace to the status now enjoyed by the various European Parliaments'. Socialism and democracy had been rejected in favour of free trade: there was an ongoing disenfranchisement of the people and. . . enfranchisement of market forces'.1 This critique remained powerful within the Labour Movement and was one of the key arguments deployed ...

... looking nationalism of the Tory little Englanders. On the contrary, for true internationalists..... '. (emphases added) The claim that the right has hi-jacked' the issue is nonsense. There has always been a section of the Tory Right which, like a section of the Labour Left, has opposed the EEC and the European Union. Rather uncomfortably they lined up together in the 1975 referendum campaign on EEC membership; just as some of some of their political antecendants had opposed the Marshall Aid plan almost thirty years previously.(8 ) The Labour Left has to go through these ritual maneouvres on this issue in particular, because their opponents in ...

... early members of the Social Democratic Alliance. Treasurer of the LTUPS was General Secretary of the EEPTU, Frank Chapple, and its chair was Bill Jordan of the AEU.(89) Europe The social democratic wing of the Labour Party had two key positions: British membership of NATO and retention of British nuclear weapons, and membership of the EEC. After the defeat of CND at the Labour conference of 1961 it was European Economic Community (EEC) membership which became their great cause. With this achieved with the EEC referendum vote yes' in 1975, when it came to the ideological struggles within the Labour Party in the mid and late 1970s, in David Marquand's words, ...

... Last | Contents | Next Issue 48 Historical Notes Scott Newton A Franco-German Bomb?A study by the German historian Werner Abelhauser casts new light on Franco-German efforts to provide the youthful European Economic Community with military capability.(1 ) The essay is notable because it adds another dimension to our grasp of how and why the EEC was formed. Most modern work follows from the thesis developed by Alan Milward and is starting to accept that the EEC developed out of the post-war reconstruction programmes of the six nations (France, Germany, Italy and Benelux) which founded it. (2 ) Abelhauser does not argue with this but does suggest that other, ...

... be familiar to readers of this magazine, Private Eye's coverage of the PFI fraud, or Elliot's column in The Guardian. What may not be so familiar is a section near the end, in which in a couple of pages they offer an analysis of NuLab's origins, tracing them back through the formation of the SDP to the pro-EEC campaign in the referendum of 1975. They see in these groups a common thread: the pretence that tough choices don't have to be made. They show that the pro-EEC campaign lied that membership of the EEC didn't mean change to this society; they show the SDP flunked the tough choices while pretending they had made them; ...

The word has spread however4 and went mainstream when Democrat politicians used it to justify killing off austerity economics and to present monetary expansion as a means of funding spending programs in the US. Wynne Godley you may recall as the ex-HM Treasury economic modeller and leading light of the Cambridge Economics Policy group. He opposed membership of the EEC during the 1975 referendum and supported the so-called Alternative Economic Strategy. This was developed to oppose the monetary orthodoxy that was used to first hobble the Labour Government of the 1970s and then to crucify the UK economy when Margaret Thatcher gave the UK monetarism at full throttle. Although he wrote articles from time to time in the London ...
