... : implications for public administration'. 'Lord Butler will examine the reasons why the UK intelligence community seem to have reached wrong conclusions about Iraq's possession of WMD and the lessons that can be learned for the future.' Not that we'll ever learn the lessons as the event was 'off the record' and closed to the media. Sir Ian Blair on 'Policing the metropolis: current challenges'. Challenges include' communication and accountability in an increasingly diverse world city'. This event was also 'off the record' and closed to the media.

... his purchase of the London Times and with an eye to the threatened privatisation of the BBC. However, he retained an eye to Labour's future leadership with the British American Project from 1983 and in 1993 at Davos (with the printing unions crushed) indicated he might support Labour in the future. This led to the courtship of Murdoch by Blair, the hijacking of the Labour Party in 1995 and its subsequent fawning over Murdoch even as it has cut the BBC's budget in real terms. Dorril and Ramsay (see note 2) pp. 264-269. Also Penrose, B., and Courtier, R., The Pencourt File, (London: Secker and Warburg, 1978 ...

103. New Labour tittle-tattle [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... | Next Issue 54 New Labour tittle-tattle Tom Easton Mendelsohn and Labour funding For a party already £20m in debt, Labour's reported spend of £1m on the autumn election-that-never-was doesn't chime well with the prudence on which Prime Minister Gordon Brown built his reputation. The man tasked with sorting out the financial mess now that Lord Levy has followed Tony Blair into the sunset is his old Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) colleague Jon Mendelsohn. Announcing the appointment of the business lobbyist in August, Labour said Mendelsohn's role would be to 'improve overall organisational efficiency and to develop the party's future financial strategy. He will work hand-in-hand with party staff on strengthening and extending our supporter base, seeking ...

104. New Labour news [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... are demonstrably not working. Thinking kindly, we might call them people in the grip of theories (though perhaps mostly theories about their careers). If he wasn't so irredeemably old Labour for them, Denis Healey's dictum, if you are in a hole, stop digging, would be worth their consideration. All our yesterdays Alastair Campbell's The Blair Years (London: Hutchinson, 2007, h/b, £25) has been widely reviewed elsewhere and, like most reviewers, I found it tedious and oddly fascinating at the same time. While I read/skimmed it I marked the bits that struck me. Minus the section on Putin discussed elsewhere in this issue, ...

... by reading it.(2) Not inspired to avoid that kind of covert operation, but apparently inspired to emulate it in the struggle with the Jihadists. And there are still people in the Labour Party who think Brown is a lefty! Guff central During his last appearance at the House of Commons liaison committee on June 18, Tony Blair declared that democracy and freedom are 'universal values of the human spirit and always will be.' Even if I knew what 'the human spirit' meant, this is manifestly falsified by the slaughter-strewn history of the 20th century. A spook by an other name In the New Statesman of 27 September (3) there was a very interesting ...

106. Fifth Column [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... government spin-doctors firmly at the door of Rumsfeld, decisions that he and his advisers took in the months immediately following the invasion. This is a convenient narrative but it avoids having to deal with the inconvenient truth that suffering from American mistakes and incompetence was always the price that the UK would pay if it accepted American leadership in the way that Blair did. The establishment narrative implied that, if the Americans had behaved differently and followed the British counter-insurgency approach, then all would have been well. This is the psychology of denial. It privileges British wisdom far beyond what the evidence can stand. In fact, as The Financial Times recounts on 21 August (a highly recommended article ...

... Ron Roberts, shows in the first of his essays that the British Psychological Society hasn't done anything or even said anything about the Iraq war, and contrasts this with the reaction of the British Medical Association which has.(22) Julie Lloyd and Steve Potter contribute an essay on Cognitive Analytic Therapy and use it to analyse the speeches of Blair and Bush. They show that Bush, Blair (or their speechwriters, more likely) use language to present their case in the best possible light and play on the fears and prejudices of their audience to win approval. Well, yes, they're politicians, and this is what politicians do. They write at the end of their ...

108. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Broad Left to sustain its hegemony. This is actually more evident in Britain than the US and, indeed, much of Marshall's book concerns itself with the British situation. Here, New Labour has completely replaced the Tories as the main party of British capitalism by hijacking the historical Labour Party in violation of its own constitution. But while Tony Blair had almost zero experience of labour movement politics and was certainly no intellectual, those who theorised and rendered the process possible in terms of a Gramscian war of position or construction of a hegemony were former members of the Communist Party or members of the Demos think tank. Names like Peter Mandelson, Stuart Hall, Martin Kettle and Martin Jacques ...

... terms, SIS may need to conjure a perception of refound elegance, in a guise suited to the modern world. A sense of humour is always useful.(15) Updating Britannia Niche state players can sometimes be restored to brand strength if there is evidence of exceptional post-failure leadership or national reputation overall remains strong. Under former Prime Minister Blair, prior to the war, this was certainly the case. Many took pride in Britain's image established by SIS as much as any other organisation as 'a little country punching above its weight'. This identity, because of Iraq, has been sacrificed and, to date, a new one not found. At the moment, a ...
