... Israel's political parties.' Think then what that might mean for international politics, given the close ties of Israel to the United States and the extent to which the latter's election process depends on huge cash injections. Kochan also tells us that laundered money in this case from the former dictator of Nigeria, General Sani Abacha helped Tony Blair get New Labour off the ground. "The British Financial Services Authority conducted its own investigation of British banks' involvement in the Abacha scandal and unearthed one account of particular importance. The account, called Umbria, which had been established in 1996 at the Union Bank of Switzerland in Switzerland (UBS) was held in the name of ...

... 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 ...

163. The Party of Business and the B usiness of Parties [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... sold its soul to the devil. This isn't something that merely goes back to Clause 4. Most members who joined the Labour Party never saw Clause 4 as anything other than an historical relic of an early twentieth century stitch-up. Those that didn't were in a minority, and they probably couldn't stomach any Labour leader for very long anyway. Blair has probably grasped that nettle somewhat better than did Harold Wilson, whose efforts to keep everybody on board probably damaged his health. Do far cats call the tune? Only the misty-eyed romantics would believe for one moment that millionaires etc. don't flutter around the governing party like moths around a light bulb; or that such fair weather friends ...

... MI5 took a more relaxed view, with W. Ogilvie responding to the Special Branch report with the observation that Orwell 'has been a bit of an anarchist in his day and in touch with extremist elements. But he has lately thrown in his lot with Victor Gollancz who as you probably know has severed all connection with the Communist Party. Blair undoubtedly (has) strong Left Wing views but he is a long way from orthodox Communism'. As Ogilvie noted, it was evident from Orwell's recent writings (this was before Animal Farm was published) 'that he does not hold with the Communist Party nor they with him'. Post-war, of course, Orwell became involved with ...

... has become impatient of advice from anywhere. Ideology has also played a part: if you're a Neo-Con, there is no reason to double-check whether 'liberated' countries really do turn naturally to 'democracy'. It seems that in the early 2000s the British intelligence community raised serious doubts that Saddam Hussein had WMDs, which were disregarded by Bush and Blair because they didn't fit in with their presumptions. America's problem after 2001 was not that it had no loyal intelligence allies, but that they were, as Jeffreys-Jones puts it, 'too loyal'. The UN's Hans Blix, who resisted political pressures from all sides in order to make his intelligence more objective, was rubbished. He turned ...

... to generate enemies. That requirement has just landed a big one: Africa. On 2 April President Bush announced the formation of a Unified Command for Africa. How this will play was shown by the Daily Telegraph's report on 7 April: headlined 'Africa becomes vital front in war on terror', the story by the Telegraph's diplomatic correspondent David Blair told us that 'Meanwhile, a belt of countries in the Horn of Africa and on the southern fringe of the Sahara could, say US officials, become new breeding grounds for Islamist terrorism.' (emphasis added) We may assume that if anything is going to encourage Islamic terrorism it will be the arrival of the US armed forces ...

... really want to read another synthesis of the Greville Wynn/Oleg Penkofsky story, important though Penkofsky was? Much of this feels like churning the old files. The later chapters are more interesting and, as befits a former Conservative MP, he has a serious go at the latest 'C', John Scarlett, for his relationship with the Blair government and the fiasco over Iraqi WMDs. He also drops some hints about blemishes on Scarlett's career which can only have come from SIS personnel. The core of 'West's' thesis is this: 'SIS rarely embarked on a project without the fullest ministerial approval' (p. 17). And the only instance he allows in which they ...

... , gave an example of why the British state is willing to eat almost any amount of shit handed to them by the US. 'The UK has no intelligence assets in central Asia. We are dependent on information giv- en to us by the United States' CIA and NSA.' The British overseas lobby in Whitehall like Tony Blair still dreams of being a 'world player'. But it doesn't have the tax resources to match the UK's (private) overseas investments. Which is essentially why the British state remains clinging to the coat-tails of America.
