51. Demos [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... to Labour, which involved lots of telephone calls with the Americans- mainly advising them how not to repeat our mistakes.'(3) Demos aimed to transpose the mishmash of Marxism Today's 'fetishised' Thatcherism into Labour policy. Mulgan was part of a 1995 'secret committee' led by Mandelson 'to examine policy changes', which met with Blair on alternate Fridays. The group contained no MPs, preferring Roger Liddle and Derek Scott (both former SDP), Patricia Hewitt (not then an MP), and TV producer Michael Wills. Here Mandelson and Liddle urged Blair to use the SDP as a party model. (4) As Demos' 'policy entrepreneur' Mulgan was ...

52. The view from the Bridge [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... Last| Contents| Next Issue 47 The view from the Bridge Paddy the spook Since the last issue I have skimmed Paddy Ashdown's two volumes of diaries. While dominated by his attempt to do a deal with the Blair-led Labour Party, there are some other interesting snippets; and, through Ashdown's eyes, there is a detailed portrait of Tony Blair which suggests that Rory Bremner's impersonation of him on Channel 4 has got it about right. Pages and pages of conversation with Blair are reproduced verbatim. Ashdown claims he wrote down their conversations as soon as his meetings with Blair finished. In which case he's got a phenomenal memory. On the other hand, maybe he didn't trust Mr ...

53. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... alongside- and possibly replacing in time- Alastair Campbell in running the Prime Minister's spin machine. Blair's chief of staff is former Washington embassy diplomat Jonathan Powell. Recruited to the BAP in 1991 along with new TUC general secretary Brendan Barber, Powell has praised the organisation for 'taking the working out of networking'. Another BAP figure important to Blair in the Iraq crisis was Matthew Rycroft, his private secretary responsible for foreign affairs. In the Cabinet Office, Allie Saunders (BAP 2001) has responsibility for defence and overseas affairs. Between government and its citizenry lie the important 'opinion formers' and the BAP was well represented here during the war. Defence specialists Col Bob Stewart ( ...

... Labour Party has been the party of the state, the nation and the domestic economy; in effect the British national party. The leadership began moving away from this in the late 1980s when they decided that opposing the forces of globalisation and neo-conservatism meant they would never win a general election.2 0 Changes begun under Neil Kinnock were continued by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown when they became more or less joint party leaders in 1994 and then took office in 1997. Several wars, the banking crisis (and the longest recession since WW2), and about four million immigrants later, the election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader apparently marked the end of Labour as a neo-con party. So the ...

... 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, ...

56. Nobody told us we could do this [Lobster #64 (Winter 2012) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Kennedy, Campbell (and Huhne) in quick succession, can we say that by late 2007 the tectonic plates of UK domestic politics were starting to move? Certainly by 2008 there was a receptive audience at the highest levels of the Civil Service for a government that would 'take decisions'. Such opinions should be seen in the context that Blair had already admitted that he spent his entire first term (1997-2001) learning the job and Brown's priorities appeared to be endlessly gauging his immediate political advantage and calculating how to remain in control.8 Wilson 6 During Campbell's spell as Liberal Democrat Leader (2006-2007) the party won the Dunfermline and West Fife bye-election. Campbell rebuffed an offer from Brown ...

Hackney North and Stoke Newington in 1987, considering her to be lazy. Not surprisingly the major media obituaries avoided narrative complications like this. However, it should be noted that although Sedgemore ...

58. Iraq misc. [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... Prime Minister's object...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 ...

... 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. A spook by an other name In the New Statesman of 27 September (3) there was a very interesting ...

... read in full than the Chilcot Report itself, even its executive summary. That's partly because it's less than 200 pages, demonstrates great familiarity with the material provided publicly to Chilcot, is well written and burns with hot logic. His criticism, from careful examination of the material available to Chilcot, is not only directed at Prime Minister Tony Blair. He concludes: 'I have found no evidence that David Manning, foreign policy adviser inside Downing Street as war loomed, ever tried to correct Tony Blair. Neither have I found protests from Foreign Secretary Jack Straw. Nor from Jonathan Powell, Downing Street chief of staff. Nor Alastair Campbell, Director of Communications. More importantly still ...
