121. 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 ...

... 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 ...

123. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... 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 ...

'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'.

125. New Labour tittle-tattle [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... 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 ...

... 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.

128. Fifth Column [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... with a UN mandate; an effort to create the conditions for peace in the region; or as an over-ambitious attempt to piggy-back a bigger power and rebuild a hard power presence in an important strategic zone. Perhaps a bit of all three. Following the public humiliation of the Royal Navy by Iran and the post-Blair commitment to withdrawal from Iraq, the British presence East of Suez increasingly looks like hubris exercised by a government that, in its previous incarnation, had neither the intelligence nor planning resources, let alone materiel, to sustain its ambitions – whether humanitarian or geostrategic. Atlanticism rises or falls to the degree that the US can manage its own ...

... 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 ...

130. 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 ...
