141. Demos - fashionable ideas and the rule of the few [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... business support (this was before the 'prawn cocktail circuit'). This programme had been judged a limited success no thanks to the rather naive approach to business of the Leader's immediate circle. Geoff Mulgan was then (1992) a research assistant to Gordon Brown and LFIG was close to the John Smith/Gordon Brown Scots network, though Blair was very much in the frame even at that time as a rising moderniser allied to the same power base. Mulgan and Martin Jacques, the almost iconic editor of the Marxist journal Marxism Today, had been trying to get Demos off the ground for some time but it had been getting nowhere. Could I advise? I agreed to ...

... a few weeks later at the Yankee Stadium Memorial. This was 'sold' (televised) throughout the world, especially in the Islamic one, as 'ecumenical'. Which is why the first half dozen or so religious representatives to lead the prayers were Jewish. Another part of the PR campaign involved American representatives (and I include Prime Minister Blair) queuing up to go on Al-Jazeera TV. As a result, one highly educated transatlantic young Palestinian said to me in October: 'We consider Al Jazeera at best nobbled, at worse, suspect. ' Ms Beers has a lot of work to do. Charm offensive In Britain the charm offensive was led by Prime Minister ...

143. Back to the future: the 1970s reconsidered [Lobster #34 (Winter 1998)]
... very bright Thatcherites.(1 ) To understand where we are now, we have to go back to the 1970s. For the 1970s led to Mrs. Thatcher, which led to the progressive collapse of Labour as a radical, reforming party.(2 ) Mrs. Thatcher claimed legitimacy from the events of the 1970s; and the Blair faction have, in turn, accepted as legitimate much of what was done in her name. The Tory and Labour Thatcherites see the 1970s as a disaster and 1979 is their Year Zero. There is a curious symmetry here: at the end of the 1970s the insurgent wings of both the major parties were dominated by betrayal myths. ...

' in Lobster 56. 18 And the fact that he did so is one of the reasons the NuLab faction – Brown, Blair et al – detested him: he knew more than they did, knew they were talking shit and told them so. For a political leader, like Mrs Thatcher, acknowledging error and changing minds is a peculiar problem. A leader attracts followers, or builds a coalition of support, based on two things: policies and prospects of ...

145. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... 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 ...

146. 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 ...

The latest journal to document the activities of the spooks and military in that part of the Pacific is Peace Researcher; Journal of the Anti-Bases Campaign. I have received issue 5 which includes several interesting, well documented pieces on the activities of ASIO, ASIS, the US Air Force in the ...

... the 1997 election and in the decade that followed. Having the City on side, or at least not against, was an important component of Labour's permission to speak on economic policy, which in turn was required to demonstrate a break with the perceived failure of Labour's economic record of the past. ' (emphases added) So: the Blair government had to demonstrate to the City its 'fitness to govern' and thus acquired 'permission' to do so. Why is this necessary? Because of the 'perceived failure of Labour's economic record of the past'. Huh? Labour is deemed to be a failure because of the Wilson- Callaghan years? Really? Do you think anyone ...

Extracts were published in The Guardian and The Mail on Sunday, where Elliot and Atkinson are economics editors respectively.

There is also a section (pp. 336-7 ) on his attendance at the 1995 Bilderberg conference. Of this he writes: 'I am sent by the Blair office as none of the front-line Labour spokesmen can go'. Oddly or not Bilderberg is not in the index.
