... and Liddle, whose role as a lobbyist while on the No 10 payroll was revealed in 1998 by Greg Palast (see Lobster 36 ), are very old friends of Peter Mandelson. Thomson and Liddle were big wheels in the formation of the Social Democratic Party in 1981 Liddle even standing as a LibDem parliamentary candidate in 1992 before joining the Blair team after the death of John Smith two years later. Now working alongside Thomson in the upper reaches of the BBC is David Jordan, who has taken over the delicate role of chief political adviser from Anne Sloman, who has retired to Norfolk with a gong. Sloman will be remembered for sending the famous warning to BBC staff not ...

' (1 ) Even more off-message On 25 January 2004 The Glasgow Herald reported what were claimed to be the views of senior British intelligence figures in a 'pre-emptive strike against Tony Blair ahead of the public-cation of the Hutton report'. (2 ) The Herald said this of MI6: 'The key points it wants on the record are: Many had been openly sceptical about the presence of WMD in Iraq for years. The intelligence community was under pressure to provide the government with what it wanted, namely ...

... Iraq. The world can handle the likes of Bin Laden a lot more easily than it can a USA, in the grip of dim, fundamentalist Christian nutters, armed to the teeth and bent on 'full spectrum dominance'. As the text for this issue was being finished, the British media was full of stories about disillusion with Tony Blair and New Labour. Just this once I'll say it: Lobster that is this writer and other contributors never believed a word of it and the analyses of 'New Labour' in issue 33, published a couple of months after Blair's election victory in 1997, remain cogent today. As Gore Vidal said, the best three words in the ...

195. Perfidious Albion: an end to deceit [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... foreign policy by Mark Curtis could not be better timed. With more than a million Britons on the streets of London protesting against the Iraq war earlier this year there is a potentially large audience for a critical review of what led this country to that invasion. Even his title, Web of Deceit, catches the growing public perception of Tony Blair in leading the country into war on a false prospectus. Coming after The Ambiguities of Power in 1995 and The Great Deception in 1998, this is Curtis's third trawl through government documents from the perspective of those at the receiving end of British foreign policy. In the earlier two he dug beneath the Cold War double talk and obfuscation of ...

196. Historical Notes [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... , broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on 15 June and 11 August this year. The story is instructive on two levels. First because it suggests that it may be wrong to claim that if Clinton or Gore had been in the White House there would have been no war and secondly for what it tells us about British foreign policy in the Blair era. Let's look at the details. The autumn of 1997 saw deteriorating relations between the USA and Iraq. The issue was Iraq's unwillingness to open to UN inspectors all sites where there was suspected research and development of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Clinton complained that Saddam Hussein was not co-operating with the UN and argued ...

The big figures march by: Bevan, Wilson, Callaghan, Healey, Robert Maxwell; and there are interesting stories about all of them. The best anecdote has Denis Healey, as Chancellor in the House of Commons in 1976, under attack from his own benches during a debate on public expenditure, turning round at the despatch box and ...

... ....the whole unedifying story is likely to enter folk lore as an awful warning of what happens if you let politicians fiddle with intelligence. ' On the final day, the one-day session tacked on at the end, Sir Kevin Tebbitt, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Defence, very carefully stuck the knife into Blair telling Lord Hutton that Blair had chaired the meeting which decided to identify Dr Kelly to the media. This statement told Hutton that Blair had lied; for on 22 July, on a plane between Shanghai and Hong Kong, Blair told reporters: 'I did not authorise the leaking of the name of Dr Kelly. ' However Blair did ...

... 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 ...

... these pages, New Labour was coopted by the US long before it took office. As for the events leading up to war, there isn't much left to say. In the absence of evidence of the Iraqi regime's 'weapons of mass destruction', to the distress of the professional diplomats and most of their intelligence services, the Bush-Blair 'allies' used dodgy information from defectors, selectively edited what other information they had, or simply made it up as part of the 'perception managment' of their populations. What they didn't seem to factor into their calculations was the speed with which the Net would circulate the views of their critics. 'Perception management' in the age of ...
