111. Chasing Alpha [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... 'Their wealth shielded them from shoddy goods and indifferent service. They rarely had to queue. They could afford small armies of hirelings to help juggle their de-manding careers and home lives. Their world was one of good schools, private medicine, domest-ic help and the best holidays money could buy.' And the influential New Labour MPs around Tony Blair and Brown ranged from those like Ed Balls, Yvette Cooper and Ruth Kelly whose City knowledge was largely journalistic, to Peter Mandelson, with close friends in lucrative financial PR, who saw his party being 'intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich'. In addition, New Labour, afraid of killing what it saw as the golden goose ...

112. Holding pattern (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... episode lies a considerable mystery, for it appears that there were in fact three 'Heathrow Plots' in circulation. In early 2003, Tony Blair's government famously surrounded Heathrow with tanks and troops, citing 'quality intelligence' of an imminent attack. With the Iraq invasion looming in the background and widespread disbelief in the WMD fairy-story, many accused Mr Blair of cooking up a false alarm with regard to Heathrow too. But it seems very unlikely that Mr Blair was behind it: the impetus for the alert appears to have come from MI5 issuing a warning to the Met's Assistant Commissioner David Veness, who was backed up by his boss Sir John Stevens. They played their hands close to ...

113. Political life in Britain (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Issue]
... figure in the group pretending to have voted Lib Dem in a marginal constituency in the 2005 election was, in fact, the Labour leader on a local council miles away making a bit of cash-in-hand, focus group money. He told me afterwards, contrary to his expressed views on the Iraq war at the group, that he'd met Tony Blair at a Labour Friends of Israel bash and wouldn't have a word said against him. But setting my experience aside, I find Mattinson's reasoning 'how New Labour stopped listening to the voter' weak, and her prescriptions for a 'new politics' unconvincing. Like many New Labour leading lights she dismisses the catastrophic collapse of the Tories ...

114. Pretexts [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... National Security Strategy itself barely manages to pay lip service to the United Nations he still felt obliged to seek UN approval for war on Iraq. 40 years previously, Johnson could at least have argued that his response to the Tonkin 'incident' was merely an act of self defence permitted under UN Charter Chapter Seven Article 51. Perhaps it was Blair who pointed out to Bush that his war may have been illegal without UN approval, and that a delay would be needed to create the impression that approval had been sought and actually given. Curiously, that was the spin placed on the failure to get the second resolution. But then why go for the second resolution anyway if 1441 ...

... previously denied to British Rail) to lease, not buy, new trains. (11) It says something about current British politics that despite paying poor or unexceptional wages, being inclined against trade unions and having his substantial profits in offshore accounts, Branson has continued to find favour at the highest level, culminating in his knighthood from the Blair government, something that he was not seriously considered for even under the Tories. Bower also has a good account of the bungled attempt by the magnificently named Dame Helena Shovelton- possibly at the behest of no. 10- to ensure the Virgin Group ran the National Lottery (an area in which they had no experience) and the ...

She was the chair of the Hertfordshire Health Authority from 1998 to 2001 and also on the board of the National Council for One Parent Families. In 1999 she was made a Labour peer by the Revd. Blair who had been introduced to her by her husband Peter Kellner, the former chairman and now president of YouGov.13 In June 2001 she became Parliamentary Under- Secretary of State in the Department for Education and Skills and in September 2004 Parliamentary Under-Secretary in the Department for Constitutional Affairs. This was followed by becoming a Privy Councillor in 2006 and Parliamentary ...

118. Empire's Workshop (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... For the lazy polemicist, who reckons his or her judgements can rest safely on only a moral feeling, Empire's workshop is a reminder of how much knowledge and analysis is needed before we come to settled views on international affairs. Notes 1 Kingsley Martin, Harold Laski, London: Gollancz, 1953) 2 The core of the Bush (Blair) doctrine is the free market. Grandin comments: 'Call it market polygamy, whereby the US can have multiple partners but each of the partners must be subordinate to it.' 3 On the growth of the Latin American left, see Grandin's, 'Latin America's new consensus' www.thenation.com/doc/20060501/Grandin 4 US influence on ...

... the [Aziz] interrogation'. In other words: somebody said.... The Post (and Borger) should have said: 'Mr Aziz may not have said any such thing at all.' But the major media there or here won't go that far yet. Bits of it may know that the Bush and Blair administrations have run full-scale disinformation campaigns around the war but they apparently cannot acknowledge it. That was Borger on the 4th. On the 7th the wind had shifted and Borger now told us: 'In the few weeks before its fall, Iraq's Ba'athist regime made a series of increasingly desperate peace offers to Washington, promising to hold elections and ...

... . The issue is whether laws, taxes and regulations should be negotiated in secret for the benefit of clients of connected lobbyists. Let me define what I mean by a 'connected' lobbyist. This isn't just a matter of old cronies who know each others' phone numbers. The three principals of LLM each worked as senior advisors to PM Blair during the campaign and individually for Messrs. Straw, Brown and Blair in opposition. They, as other 'connected' lobbyists such as Mr Draper, gave me details of several favours they had done for the Chancellor, for Peter Mandelson and others, favours which they told me they could trade, at selected times, for meetings for ...
