161. Coach into pumpkin: some problems with Paget [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... 'This is an important and sophisticated argument. It doesn't help simply to point at the amputees and say how terrible it is. ' During the same period David Howell MP (Conservative Chairman, Commons Foreign Affairs Select Committee) said that Diana should not be given any sort of ambassadorial role. By Summer 1997 Diana was in discussions with Tony Blair about a 'unique' semi-ambassadorial role. The ongoing discussions had 'taken on a fresh momentum in light of Diana's charity work and her crusade to ban landmines. '( 7 ) Having elided the matter of Diana's nascent political activism, Paget then fails to make a vital connection. On (for example) P735 Paget makes much ...

162. The Labour Party, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... , of course, was consumed with anti-communism. Both he and others were reluctant to give up the British Empire lightly. Yet others were concerned that all this pro-UN, anti-war stuff might make the party appear electorally 'weak'. Even the notions of 'humanitarian interventionism' and 'preventive wars' go back long before Blair: Phythian for example quotes Kinnock wanting to finish Saddam off preemptively in 1991; and there's a clear if minority 'humanitarian interventionist' tradition in the party that goes back to the 1900s. (Then it was called 'liberal imperialism'. Phythian goes back some way before 1945 for the 'roots' of the ideologies he is describing, but ...

163. Israel and the Clash of Civilisations, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... Steele reported: 'The government's top foreign policy advisers were as inept as their US counterparts in failing to see that removing Saddam Hussein in 2003 was likely to lead to a nationalist insurgency by Sunnis and Shias and an Islamist government in Baghdad, run by allies of Iran, the Guardian has learned. None of Whitehall's "Arabists" warned Tony Blair of the difficulties which have plagued the occupation. The revelation undermines the British claim that it was US myopia which was to blame for the failure to foresee what would happen in post-war Iraq. '( 3 ) Steele quotes Douglas Hurd, former Foreign Secretary: 'Blair and his colleagues sent British troops to kill and be killed ...

... front operation. Foulkes went on to become Scottish organiser of the European Movement and director of the European League for Economic Co-operation, an organisation which likewise gave brief employment, before a safe Labour seat and a parliamentary career, to Roy (now Lord) Hattersley. Lord Cashpoint's memory A Foreign Office colleague of McShane and Foulkes under Blair was Michael Levy whose memoirs attacking Blair, Gordon Brown and the state of the Labour Party were serialised in The Mail on Sunday just before the May municipal elections. A Question of Honour was ghostwritten for Blair's chief fundraiser by Ned Temko, the editor of The Jewish Chronicle for 15 years before joining the Iraq war-supporting Observer in ...

... journalism (this used just to be called journalism but given the current low standards of the trade the phrase has some useful descriptive value), here is a defence – which also happens to be a defence of Andrew Gilligan's hurried, exaggerated, but for all that essentially true report on BBC's 'Today' of the 'sexing up' of the Blair dossier. Don't let pompous news folk at, say, the Columbia School of Journalism hear this, but the surprising corollary of Rule C is that the biggest stories are often supported by the shakiest facts. Consider Jonathan Aitken and The Guardian. The subsequent court case showed that The Guardian went to press without really having the story locked ...

166. All the news that fits [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... consequences for democracy. At no time in Preston's review does he declare an interest – his close friendship over 30 years with his protégé Alton – or the way that this Observer editor used his position and his closeness to key people in New Labour to keep his readers in the dark over matters of peace and war and much else under the Blair premiership. Preston practises deception by omission as well as by lying. Network of influence It will take a longer piece than this to trace the network of influence over liberal opinion developed by The Guardian and The Observer in the postwar world, but it's urgent work long overdue given the parlous state of our democracy today. Preston was the ...

... 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 ...

168. 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 ...

... 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 ...
