... performance in this unwinnable war? The reputation of British Army as counterinsurgency specialists has been permanently diminished by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. What, though, of shortages of equipment and troops? While these were undoubtedly factors, they affected how the unwinnable war unfolded rather than having any direct effect on the inevitable outcome. The Blair and Brown governments deserve censure for getting involved at all, rather than for somehow losing the war. It is worth briefly noticing here the dramatic falling out between Gordon Brown and General Richard Dannatt over the resourcing of the war. Without wishing to be unfair to Dannatt, I suspect that he thought Brown's reluctance to finance the conflict derived from his ...

It was part of the Faustian pact that got New Labour into power in the first place.

... is a political journalist who has been pretty close to, and supportive of, New Labour since the 1990s. His article 'The special relationship that squandered a noble cause' (27 May 2006) opened with this: 'The long arc of Tony Blair's rise and decline has been punctuated by journeys to Washington. He went there first with Gordon Brown in January 1993...... ' Which is wrong, of course. As was reported in The Observer, Blair first went to Washington in 1986( [1 ] ) and returned from his six week freebie a convinced supporter of the nuclear deterrent. (He had been a member of CND.) Blair also ...

... this secret diplomacy is discussed in Peter Kornbluth's very good essay 'Kennedy's Last Act: Reaching Out to Cuba'.50 Oor Broon G ordon Brown's announcement at the beginning of December that he was standing down as an MP evoked a predictable chorus of acclamation from Labour Party supporters and derision from its opponents. None of the comments I read portrayed Brown as an economically illiterate careerist who became leader of the Labour Party by sounding like a leftie to its members while cuddling up to the American embassy and international bankers.5 1 As for his economic record as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Robert Henderson clearly lays out some of the dismal details.5 2 49 <http:// ...

Britain East of Suez today Thanks to his predecessor and putting aside the usual small-scale training and special ops activity that the UK has often provided to keep the Western Alliance in working order, Prime Minister Brown inherited two significant engagements that placed the UK firmly back in the East for the first time since its final departure as sovereign power had been sealed with the hand-over of Hong Kong in 1997. For only four years, the UK was itself (pace the unresolved Falklands) without delusions of empire. The presence in Iraq is ...

... see if it should be curtailed. The envisioned method of curtailment was financial, in the form of fees for requests (where there were none before) and increases in such fees as already existed. Even before Lord Falconer had finished his re-assessment, Mr Blair had resigned and the role of Prime Minister had been transferred to Gordon Brown. Given the historical rivalry between those successive PMs, there was surely a personal dimension to the remarks made by Gordon Brown during his speech 'On Liberty', delivered at the University of Westminster barely four months after Mr Blair's resignation. 'The Freedom of Information Act has been a landmark piece of legislation, enshrining for the first time in ...

... communications programme which had been designed to show that Kinnock's Labour Party had at least some business support (this was before the 'prawn cocktail circuit'). This programme had been judged a limited success no thanks to the rather naive approach to business of the Leader's immediate circle. Geoff Mulgan was then (1992) a research assistant to Gordon Brown and LFIG was close to the John Smith/Gordon Brown Scots network, though Blair was very much in the frame even at that time as a rising moderniser allied to the same power base. Mulgan and Martin Jacques, the almost iconic editor of the Marxist journal Marxism Today, had been trying to get Demos off the ground for ...

Alas for Crozier, the major media took no notice.(1 ) On December 10 1994 the Spectator kicked off the Gordievsky season proper with its piece naming the Guardian's Richard Gott as 'the KGB's British writer-in-residence'.(2 ) On 27 December the Guardian printed a photograph of Mr G being embraced by Ron Brown, the former MP for Leith, and Bill Michie MP. It was a busy day for Mr Michie, for he was also named in The Times in a long letter from three former members of the Brian Crozier network, Tony Kerpel, Julian Lewis and Edward Leigh MP.
