... (c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 27) June 1994 Last | Contents | Next Issue 27 Mrs Thatcher, North Sea oil and the hegemony of the City Robin Ramsay Introduction I began writing this in the early 1980s. If you were then reading the Guardian or the Observer, and knew a little, simple economics, it didn't take genius to notice that while the UK's manufacturing economy was being decimated by Conservative Party economic policy, the City of London was booming. More interestingly, and less frequently commented on, the UK economy as a whole was becoming self-sufficient in oil, without apparently gaining anything from it. Ah ...

... (On which sorry tale see View from the Bridge' in this issue.) When I used some of that for the Well, how did we get here? essay, I reread this section for the first time in years and it struck me as rather interesting that the last prime minister who had tried to challenge the City was Thatcher, and she lost. Thatcher versus the City of London Robin Ramsay The older I get the more I am struck by the economic illiteracy of our politicians. I don't mean their grasp of economic theory, most of which is bollocks or irrelevant; I mean their grasp of our economic history and the structural conflict between domestic and overseas ...

NAFF's inaugural meeting was held on July 19 1975 (69), and preparations must have been going on for some time before that. Little has been written about those early days but at a NAFF meeting in August 1975, the ubiquitous Chapman Pincher ...

We've seen recently: Richard Cockett's Thinking the Unthinkable: Think-tanks and the Economic Counter-Revolution 1931-83, (Harper Collins, London, 1994, 25.00); Mrs Thatcher and the Intellectuals', by Brian Harrison, in 20th Century British History, vol. 5, no. 2, 1994;* and Second-Hand Dealers in Ideas; Think-Tanks and Thatcherite Hegemony ...

... (Harry's Game, Gerald Seymour, Fontana, London 1975) Airey Neave was killed in March 1979 by a bomb planted beneath his car just outside the Houses of Parliament. The then little known Irish National Liberation Army (INLA) soon claimed responsibility. The widespread shock which greeted his assassination was probably nowhere more clearly felt than by Mrs Thatcher, then leader of the Conservative opposition. Neave had masterminded Thatcher's rise to power in the Conservative Party, organising her election as party leader. It was probably him who directed the dirty tricks' campaign against Heath which proved so effective. From 1975 until his death Neave headed Thatcher's private office. It was expected that he would be ...

... What if..... In The future's not ours to see, ', his review of Atkinson and Elliot's Going South, in Lobster 65,1 Simon Matthews offered a kind of alternative history of British history in the 1970s and 80s, in which Mrs Thatcher did not win the general election of 1979. Michael Morton contacted me to let me know such speculation had already been done by Andrew Marr in 1993 on BBC television; and that the scenarios discussed by Marr and various interviewees had originally been published in his magazine Alternate Worlds in January 1995.2 Very kindly, Michael Morton supplied a copy of the transcript of that Andrew Marr piece. Without Her ...

Of the great inflation created by Edward Heath's dash for growth' in 1972/3 there is one passing reference to the Barber boom' – Anthony Barber was Heath's Chancellor the Exchequer. Of the Thatcher/Major period, 1979-97 he notes: ' . . .

I knew several of these people and it was good, so to speak, to meet them again and to see pictures of them doing their stuff all those years ago. On page 534 – yes, it's that long – Robert Elms proclaims: Thatcher might have won elections, but culturally we won'; and Look at Britain now: it's a society where racism is absolutely frowned on; where gay marriage is accepted. It's totally different from that Little England that Thatcher tried to hold on to. ' I presume these comments were made pre-23 June 2016. The anti ...

... areas and the dangers of excessive reliance on one country, especially an authoritarian dictatorship such as China. So when the pandemic ends the government must pull off the balancing act of protecting free markets while building national capabilities in telecoms, biotech and other key industries. ' The free market and national capabilities? Sounds awfully like what existed before Mrs Thatcher took office in 1979. Another sign of change was the publication a week earlier1 on the Telegraph website of a striking essay by Professor Lee Jones2 which included these paragraphs: The more disturbing conclusion is that the British state is so lacking in basic vision and leadership, its bureaucratic institutions are so divorced from meaningful delivery capacities that it cannot ...
