11. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... service personnel seeking equity in pensions. Hundreds of veterans, some in wheelchairs, had assembled by the Ministry of Defence for their dignified lobbying of MPs, but a Lord Levy LFI fundraiser at the Banqueting Suite between the MoD and the Cenotaph was where the heavy police and Community Security Trust presence took precedence. LFI guest of honour was Gordon Brown. Seen scuttling up Whitehall to the party was MacShane s fellow LFI policy council member Nick Brown, the still baby-faced former engineering union leader Lord Bill Jordan, and former Labour party chairman Lord Clarke of Hampstead. Eric Joyce MP, the former Army officer wheeled out to defend New Labour s military interventions when no minister is ...

12. Nobody told us we could do this [Lobster #64 (Winter 2012) (free)] [Free Article]
... This indicates a degree of planning unusual in contemporary UK politics and shows that long before 2010 Cameron and Osborne realised the commonalities they had with some of the more recently elected Liberal Democrat MP's: a primary allegiance to personal liberty and a belief in free market economics.4 None of this mattered very much in 2006 or in 2007 when Gordon Brown finally ascended to the position of prime minister. If he thought about it at all, given his personal dealings with senior Liberal Democrats Ashdown, Kennedy, Campbell and Cable, Brown would have assumed that the Liberal Democrats would never do a deal with the Conservatives. But in late 2007 things changed. Firstly, Brown did not call ...

13. New Labour against manufacturing (Winter 2014) [Lobster #68 (Winter 2014) (free)] [Free Article]
... This is the final chapter of my The Rise of New Labour, published in 2002. It didn't get any attention and didn't sell but is still available in ebook form. I was prompted to make this available because of the rehabilitation of Gordon Brown recently. Lest we forget, he is one of the chief architects of the economic mess we are in. This chapter shows how. 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 ...

... around the world in searching out the way forward.... '. In other words the Labour Party should be changed radically and should work closely with the US Democrats and the Australian Labour Party but not any of the European left of centre parties. In January 1993 the British Embassy in Washington DC organised a visit for Blair and Brown. During this they met the Chairman of the US Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, who advised them that what the UK really needed was to have control of interest rates set by the Bank of England. They would duly carry out this policy 4 years later.(4 ) (Did Blair ever think of visiting the EU in ...

15. The economic crisis continues (Summer 2011) [Lobster #61 Summer 2011) (free)] [Free Article]
... the British public, which will plug their mind-blowing losses....What's happening with RBS, B&B , Northern Rock and, soon, Lloyds is what the bankers call a reverse takeover. The scale is mindblowing. RBS's £2 trillion of liabilities dwarfs not only the government reserves but the entire UK economy. Brown hasn't so much nationalised the banks, he has bank-ised the nation. ' 4 Nelson used the term 'bankocracy', which I thought was recent; Anne Pettifor has used it, for example.5 But then I noticed a letter in the London Review of Books pointing out that Marx had used the term in the first ...

... the leadership election, defeating Bryan Gould, the leader of the anti-banker tendency within the parliamentary Labour Party. My branch of the Labour Party was one of the few which voted for Gould. Gould's loss to Smith was the end of the anti-banker tendency in the Labour movement. Under John Smith, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown became shadow front bench spokesmen and were widely seen as the coming men. When John Smith died in 1994, Blair took over and NuLab began to form. Enter Tony Blair M uch of this was visible in 1997. What then wasn't visible, the new factor in the rise of NuLab, was not the American state, which ...

17. The Labour Finance and Industry Group: a memoir [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... this day from within the Group, I decided never to get involved again. So the story is of around five crucial years from just before the General Election of 1992 when Kinnock 'discovered' the business vote (even if his office did not impress in its handling of it), through the brief John Smith period to the Blair/Brown pact and the victory of Blair first over Brown and then over the Left of the Party in the Clause IV Campaign. It was no surprise to find prominent LFIG networked individuals emerge in the House of Lords 1997 intake for services to politics because LFIG played a small but important role in that process of transition to what we have today ...

... the latest batch of government files released under the 30 year rule at the Public Record Office. Hennessy was apparently astonished to see documentation of the conflict between the then Governor of the Bank of England, Lord Cromer, and Prime Minister Harold Wilson. Cromer wanted - guess what? - cuts in public expenditure and higher interest rates. Gordon Brown would have said, 'It's already in our program, Lord Cromer, ' but Wilson threatened to call a general election on the theme of the government or the Bank of England. Cromer backed down in a hurry. On 3 January 1997 the Guardian carrried a long, splendidly condescending letter from John Cole, erstwhile BBC political editor, ...

' This generated another question: what was the Better Regulation Executive (BRE)? BRE's arrival was heralded by then Chancellor Gordon Brown in 2005. He said this about it in his press statement on 24 May 2005. 'The modern enterprise challenge is to enhance the flexibility needed for a successful economy and tackle the regulatory concerns we know all industrial economies face without sacrificing the standards a good society needs. ' (emphases added) Brown contrasted the 'old regulatory model' ...
