61. The Labour Party, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... their prime anti-colonial instincts. Bevin, 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 ...

62. Sources [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... A media witch-hunt duly ensued and Henderson was smeared as a racist crackpot. Henderson looked for redress in the usual channels- Press Complaints body, his MP- and discovered that the only redress is the courts and only the rich can afford libel actions. Unhappy at the response of his own MP, Frank Dobson, he wrote to Tony Blair, when was Leader of the Opposition. To Blair he wrote 13 letters in all. A number of things then happened. Tony Blair called in the police but the Crown Prosecution Service found no crime had been committed. Undaunted, the Blair camp briefed their friends at the Mirror who then smeared and libelled Henderson in a way similar ...

64. 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 in Iraq ...

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.

66. The view from the bridge [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... ] early on in his career, around the time he stood in the Beaconsfield by-election in 1982. He was just the sort of agent MI5 wanted at the time, a man who appeared to be committed to the Labour Party but who in fact was to use Thatcher's phrase "one of us"...MI5 terminated Blair in the late 1980s when it was downgrading its study of subversion and Blair was rising to the higher ranks of the Labour Party.' The spook-wise We've got another MP who takes a serious interest in the British secret state. In the past we have had MPs who had been secret servants (mostly Conservative) and a few Labour ...

... investigative 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 ...

Robin Ramsay Chapter 8 Into office 'It is scarcely credible that Britain should once again be crucified on an excessively high exchange rate. Wynne Godley, The Observer (Business) 23 August 1998. By the time Labour took office Brown and Blair had promised to toe the conservative line on economic policy: no income tax rises, no increased public spending, no attempts to use government to direct the economy; and no reacquisition of the privatised state assets, the roughly £100 billion of taxation- created assets flogged-off for around £50 billion during the Thatcher years. All talk ...

... did, would have been ousted very quickly. It is also true that the 1974-1979 Wilson-Callaghan governments made a reasonable job of recovering from the inflation caused by Heath and Barber in 1971-1973. 'Old Labour' did OK. It was just a shame it didn't have a better leader. Some of the Callaghan obituaries claimed that he was consulted by Blair on some issues. There is no evidence of this. Blair, paying tribute, said that Callaghan was a 'giant of the Labour movement'. While this may have been true in terms of attainment of the highest offices of the state, Blair has avoided any repetition of the Callaghan style of government: no deals with the trade ...

... as she puts it, 'to apologise to Iraqis for the war and to help them rebuild their country'. She is very much aware of the incongruity of her position and recognises that working for the Occupation changed her. How does she deal with this? The narrative device she employs is to make a joke of it. When Tony Blair visited the country in May 2007, she was invited to meet him at the British Embassy. The Embassy was 'rocketed....minutes before Blair arrived he was running ten minutes late. Two vehicles were destroyed'. She was introduced to him by US General Petraeus as 'a national treasure' and he was astonished to discover that ...
