... , he had run for cover when Mrs. Thatcher challenged his patriotism. His successor, John Smith, was a life-long friend of the SIS officer, now Baroness Ramsay, and Donald Dewar, I am informed, had a similar relationship with former MI5 D-G Stella Rimington.(1 ) The key people in the Blair faction are all securely integrated into the Anglo-American foreign policy system(2 ) and are no more likely to challenge the British secret state than they are to challenge the dominance of the City of London. Even so, after the May General Election this year both SIS and MI5 put material out into the media aimed at their ...

They are, of course, all strong Tony Blair supporters in the new Labour Cabinet. And what about Peter Mandelson and Elizabeth Symons? Not yet quite Cabinet members, but both are key figures in the 'modernising project' in Blair's 'New Labour' government: Mandelson as Minister without Portfolio having a roving brief to monitor, coordinate and brief the press on all areas of government activity and ...

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 ...

... yet Ministers seemed to want to be thanked for the gently rising prosperity that followed leaving the ERM when they had consistently claimed such an event would prove disastrous. 'Many voters who had been attracted by Major's brand of Conservatism became disenchanted and drifted away from supporting the Conservatives. ' This drift was actively encouraged after 1994 by Labour's new leader Tony Blair and his business-friendly, pro- 'aspiration' policy stance. Blair's May 1997 victory was widely expected, although its scale was probably not. Labour's majority in the House of Commons was larger than the entire Parliamentary Conservative Party. Defenders of Blair and his Chancellor Gordon Brown like to cite the introduction of the National Minimum Wage ...

... the City's dominance of British economic policy. These views were reflected in Labour leader Neil Kinnock's 1986 book Making Our Way. But after the election defeat of 1987 (the third) the Labour leadership abandoned any thought of challenging the economic status quo and began accommodating the perceived power and electoral popularity of a Thatcherised, privatised Britain.59 Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, who had acquired safe Labour seats in the 1983 general election, were part of this shift. By the end of their first parliament in 1987 both had been noticed as rising stars and had been given shadow cabinet roles, Brown as number two to the late John Smith, who was shadowing the Department of Trade ...

This culminated publicly in the rapprochement symbolised by Gadaffi and Prime Minister Blair embracing in 2004; and privately in the British security and intelligence services helping to send back anti-Gadaffi activists (one from the 1996 group paid by MI6) to their Libyan equivalents for torture.3 As part of the fallout from the end of the Gadaffi regime 1 See, for examples, <http://en ...

... umbrella organisation wait for it -- the American Iranian Council (line-up includes directors of Enron, Chevron/Texaco, the President of Halliburton). They should sort out the problem. Lloyd's (Rio Tinto) prize-winning essay, 'Right and Left to Right and Wrong', reminisced about his days with the young Tony Blair expelling 'the militants' from the Hackney Labour Party. It also made great play of the massive shifts with the withdrawal of Clause Four: but how serious was the commitment to this? Here is Geoff Mulgan, the man then in charge of Labour's renationalisation plans, in 1991, quoted in the Commons: 'There will be no need ...

'( 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 ...

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 ( ...
