91. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... much better served by their obituarists.(1) Lord Thomson of Monifieth, who died in October, had been better known in recent years as father of senior BBC executive Caroline Thomson and father-in-law of Roger Liddell, the SDP founder member and lifelong pal of Peter Mandelson, who became adviser on Europe and defence at No 10 when Tony Blair became Prime Minister. Liddell, like his wife's father, gravitated to a Brussels job when Mandelson became an EU commissioner. Lord Thomson, who shared his son-in-law's strong interest in defence and Europe, became a European commissioner in 1972, one of the many Atlanticist Gaitskellites to find the Labour Party an increasingly inhospitable home as the Vietnam War ...

92. The politics of the organic movement - an overvie [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... 1991 The apotheosis of this trend (at least one hopes that there will be no worse examples) was the £1 ,000-a-seat Feast of Albion held at London's Guildhall in March 2008. On the Goldsmiths, see the article by Simon Matthews in Lobster 55 (2008), pp. 32-36. Noble's book is Notes From the Old Blair and Bush, 2008, under the pseudonym Ernest Organic. It perhaps has a psychological parallel in the work of Jung, where the potentially threatening dark confusion of the unconscious mind can, if faced and accepted, rather than being repressed, become a source of strength and energy, just as the apparently dead matter in the soil becomes ...

93. The Labour Party, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... their prime anti-colonial instincts. Bevin, of course, was consumed with anti-communism. Both he and others were reluctant to give up the British Empire lightly. Yet others were concerned that all this pro-UN, anti-war stuff might make the party appear electorally 'weak'. Even the notions of 'humanitarian interventionism' and 'preventive wars' go back long before Blair: Phythian for example quotes Kinnock wanting to finish Saddam off preemptively in 1991; and there's a clear if minority 'humanitarian interventionist' tradition in the party that goes back to the 1900s. (Then it was called 'liberal imperialism'. Phythian goes back some way before 1945 for the 'roots' of the ideologies he is describing, but ...

94. Israel and the Clash of Civilisations, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... Steele reported: 'The government's top foreign policy advisers were as inept as their US counterparts in failing to see that removing Saddam Hussein in 2003 was likely to lead to a nationalist insurgency by Sunnis and Shias and an Islamist government in Baghdad, run by allies of Iran, the Guardian has learned. None of Whitehall's "Arabists" warned Tony Blair of the difficulties which have plagued the occupation. The revelation undermines the British claim that it was US myopia which was to blame for the failure to foresee what would happen in post-war Iraq.'(3) Steele quotes Douglas Hurd, former Foreign Secretary: 'Blair and his colleagues sent British troops to kill and be killed in Iraq ...

... alleged CIA front operation. Foulkes went on to become Scottish organiser of the European Movement and director of the European League for Economic Co-operation, an organisation which likewise gave brief employment, before a safe Labour seat and a parliamentary career, to Roy (now Lord) Hattersley. Lord Cashpoint's memory A Foreign Office colleague of McShane and Foulkes under Blair was Michael Levy whose memoirs attacking Blair, Gordon Brown and the state of the Labour Party were serialised in The Mail on Sunday just before the May municipal elections. A Question of Honour was ghostwritten for Blair's chief fundraiser by Ned Temko, the editor of The Jewish Chronicle for 15 years before joining the Iraq war-supporting Observer in 2005. ...

... investigative journalism (this used just to be called journalism but given the current low standards of the trade the phrase has some useful descriptive value), here is a defence which also happens to be a defence of Andrew Gilligan's hurried, exaggerated, but for all that essentially true report on BBC's 'Today' of the 'sexing up' of the Blair dossier. Don't let pompous news folk at, say, the Columbia School of Journalism hear this, but the surprising corollary of Rule C is that the biggest stories are often supported by the shakiest facts. Consider Jonathan Aitken and The Guardian. The subsequent court case showed that The Guardian went to press without really having the story locked ...

97. All the news that fits [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... and its consequences for democracy. At no time in Preston's review does he declare an interest his close friendship over 30 years with his protégé Alton or the way that this Observer editor used his position and his closeness to key people in New Labour to keep his readers in the dark over matters of peace and war and much else under the Blair premiership. Preston practises deception by omission as well as by lying. Network of influence It will take a longer piece than this to trace the network of influence over liberal opinion developed by The Guardian and The Observer in the postwar world, but it's urgent work long overdue given the parlous state of our democracy today. Preston was the ...

... Currency. As adequate guarantees to this effect did not appear, Goldsmith duly announced that the Referendum Party would contest any seat in the forthcoming UK general election where they felt that either the sitting MP or the prospective candidates were insufficiently robust on this issue. The Goldsmith effect By 1995 it seemed clear to many observers of UK politics that Tony Blair and the Labour Party, now packaged as the 'New Labour project', were likely to do very well at the forthcoming general election. For a range of reasons, notably the recession of 1991/2, and the forced withdrawal of sterling from the Exchange Rate Mechanism in 1992, a fresh Conservative government with a workable majority did ...

... The Railway Age was born in Britain and exported all around the world and one of its implicit messages was that railways should be run as a single unitary authority; but John Major knew better (with his rushed through privatisation) and New Labour, despite pre-election undertakings to re-nationalise the industry, just went belly-up on the proposal. Remember Tony Blair in opposition saying he wanted to see 'a publicly accountable, publicly owned railway'? Christian Wolmar is a canny and perceptive writer on the politics and economy of the railways and it's an area he has largely made his own. He's also immensely readable which does help when the story he has to tell is so unfailingly depressing. The ...

100. Fifth Column: The decadence of our political system [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... you have ever tasted the fruits of membership. To join the 'club', you have to think like the 'club'; but the 'club' is living in a fantasy in which words are substitutes for deeds and orders are taken for their effects. Nor is this a new phenomenon. The political genius of the group that surrounded Tony Blair and Gordon Brown in the 1990s was to see this system for what it was and then to develop rules for the acquisition of power that may have been shocking in their cynicism but which worked at least for a while. The purpose of that power was, of course, 'good', certainly liberal and progressive. But it was ...
