61. Tittle-Tattle [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... Murray hoped he would be called to give evidence to the Joint Human Rights Committee investigating precisely that subject. After much delay he was finally invited to give his evidence in April.(2) No newspaper reported his dramatic revelations about the way the Blair government had changed policy to permit the use of intelligence material gained by torture. The BBC provided the only report I could see. The Quick and the dead Thanks to Craig Murray,(3) I twigged why Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick might have been photographed with the plan for suspect arrests that led to his resignation as head of counter-terrorism. Murray suggests that it was because Quick was using the much-photographed front door of No ...

62. Lobster goes to the movies! [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... . Surprisingly, a series never released on video or DVD. In line with this is Mort Sahl's joke about a typical evening at home with the Nixons: 'Pat is knitting a flag while Dick is on the sofa reading the Constitution.' Or Lord Birt as he now is, the famous Armani-clad 'blue skies thinking' ex-head of the BBC renowned for his unfathomable managerial gobbledygook (regularly reproduced in the pages of Private Eye). His ennoblement by the Revd. Blair is widely seen as a result of his friendship with Peter Mandelson, a former colleague at London Weekend Television. Here's a bit of Birt biog that may be overlooked by future writers. I was ambling through ...

... can be turned over to tourism."'(24) (emphasis added) Will these attitudes the contempt for 'making widgets' really disappear from the upper echelons of the British financial civil service with the current crisis? I doubt it. But there are odd flickers of rethinking going on within the almost brain-dead NuLab. Interviewed on the BBC, Foreign Secretary David Milli-band en passant referred to manufacturing being twice the size of the financial sector something no NuLab minister would have said or thought until recently.(25) Chances are good, of course, that we will be told: that no-one in NuLab ever really believed that the service sector in general, and the City ...

64. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... stateside hack picked up his it usually is a he latest little gem. What's disappointing is how little insight into Atlanticism these big beasts of the journalistic firmament bring back to London when their Washington years have eased them up the career tree back in London. Michael White, still busy dissing any possibility of political conspiracy to his Guardian readers and BBC listeners despite being a Washington hack during President Reagan's IranContra years, is probably the worst of them in this regard. But his old Guardian colleague, Jim Naughtie, is not far behind and also has all his British American Project (Lobsters passim) baggage none of it disclosed to BBC Today programme listeners. One of the better post-war ...

... claims. Veerman was fired, arrested and censured.(25) Peter Griffin As a result of a 2004 investigation by Malaysian police into the activities of Khan associate, B. S. A. Tahir, Griffin was named as a middleman for a project to create a machine shop in Libya. Griffin subsequently won libel cases against the BBC (26) and The Guardian 27 for alleging that he had been knowingly involved in assisting the Libyan regime in developing its nuclear programme. He claimed complete ignorance of the network's activities, despite having been a regular Khan supplier (not to mention personal Khan acquaintance) since the 1970s. Armstrong and Trento, however, present a damning ...

66. The once and future king? [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... no index), it is similar in many ways to Citizen Ken, an account of Livingstone's life and exploits published in 1984 by John Carvel.(2 )A striking feature of Hosken's book is the large number of people interviewed by him who are careful not to be named when making comments about his subject. Andrew Hosken is a BBC TV journalist who became quite well known in the 1990s covering London local government. At that time he seemed to be working closely with associates of Livingstone as they placed in the public domain various important items or gossip, depending on one's point of view about events in a small circle of local authorities in London.(3) His ...

A few weeks before former BBC political editor Andrew Marr received two Broadcasting Press Guild awards one as 'best TV performer in a non-acting role' his journalistic colleagues were quietly made aware of a little drama in his own life. Typical of the message from editorial lawyers circulated among Britain's major news outlets was this: 'Legal Andrew Marr and Jackie Ashley: We have heard from solicitors acting for this couple who warn us not to publish any stories about their private and personal lives without giving them notice and thus a chance to apply for an injunction. They ...

68. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... its ranks. Such a government was also the stated intention of several coup plots in Italy, including the notorious Valerio Borghese plot of 1970, and King shared with Borghese significant links to the CIA.(1) In the British version, several of King's co-conspirators seemed to have been media people initially opposed to the preeminent position of the BBC, at a time when the BBC was often accused of left-wing bias. The coup plot came to nothing when the Wilson government's own scientific advisor, Sir Solly Zuckerman, was invited to join the group and managed to persuade a non-too-bright Lord Mountbatten that to participate in such a plot was 'bloody treason'.(2) At the ...

69. The meaning of the QinetiQ scandal [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... charged with forcing through 'a US-style business-orientated agenda'. Chisholm is one of Gordon Brown's favourite businessmen. One last ramification of the QinetiQ scandal that is worth noticing is that it was the then chairman of the company, Pauline Neville-Jones, who, according to Greg Dyke, was one of the principal architects of his removal as director-General of the BBC over the 'sexed-up dossier' affair. The chairman of an arms firm is able to intervene in BBC reporting of a disastrous war from which her company is profiting. Only in New Labour Britain (and America) would this be regarded as acceptable. The Carlyle Group What has attracted considerably less attention than the financial scandal, however, ...

... every word can be questioned but the truth still somehow comes across: the four gospels contradict one another (as well as a sense of what is beyond reasonable doubt), yet two thousand years later people still understand them to reflect reality. Gilligan would probably not want to be seen as a latter-day biblical evangelist but he (and the BBC) suffered mainly because of what philosophers might call a category error. Academics and lawyers (including but not only Tony Blair and Lord Hutton) examined what he said in that live radio report only, (and deliberately only) from the perspectives of their professions and experience. Meanwhile every ordinary listener will have understood what Gilligan was getting ...
