... . But I am not sure I have learnt what were those broken vows. What exactly was Bower – or indeed any of us – expecting? The received view of New Labour's rush to the till-death- do-us-part section of those vows has at its core the perpetual 1 Sunday Telegraph 3 March 2002 acrimony between Brown and Blair, which paralysed decision- making and split the party, the Parliamentary Labour Party, and the Civil Service. Of course there is ample evidence to support that view – it is incontestable. But Bower identifies other issues: Blair's lack of policy leadership, his absence of a historical perspective (especially in the context of Labour ...

72. Poor Innocent Fools, book reviews by John Newsinger (Summer 2012) [Lobster #63 (Summer 2012) (free)] [Free Article]
... New Labour being 'drawn without protest into the bed of market capital'. While his comments on Blair and Mandelson are undoubtedly true, he is focussing on symptoms rather than causes. The origin of New Labour is to be found in the historic defeats that the Thatcher government inflicted on the labour movement in the 1980s. Without these defeats, Brown would have remained on the left and Blair would never have become party leader. Marshall-Andrews' own particular concerns are with New Labour's colonial wars and its assault on civil liberties. Blair told barefaced lies to secure British participation in the Iraq War. Marshall-Andrews makes the interesting point that if he had told the truth then ...

... happened and they assumed it was a dead-end. In 1992 the success of Oliver Stone's JFK encouraged them to track down the then old and ill Factor. He told them a jumbled story at the centre of which was his recruitment by a man called simply 'Wallace'. Wallace was ID'd for them by LBJ's former mistress, Madeleine Brown, who, when they met her, had named Malcolm 'Mac' Wallace as the probable killer of JFK in her then unpublished memoir, Texas In The Morning. (4 ) Using that identification Collum and Sample were able to research some of Wallace's career through Texas newspapers. Wallace, who died in a one car crash in 1971 ...

... companies that were "purposefully distressed". One might have thought the notion that a senior Labour figure such as Umunna would defend the likes of PWC and RBS against the small and medium sized firms that they are believed to have raped and pillaged would be unthinkable in the wake of the demise of former prime minister and City cheerleader, Gordon Brown. Especially given that Umunna, 35, purports to support small businesses and even sent a volley of tweets to support small businesses in the Streatham area of south London during 'Small Business Saturday' events last December........... Sadly, it seems Umunna, a former solicitor with RBS's lawyers Herbert ...

(20) Dr. C.A .Smith, former Chair of the Independent Labour Party, was Secretary of Common Cause from 1954-56 (21), presumably from its inception, apparently in 1952: a piece in The Times announced Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton and John Brown, ex-General Secretary of the Iron and Steel Trades Confederation as joint chairs. (Douglas-Hamilton turns up later in the 1950s as part of the de Courcy group publishing The Weekly Review and Intelligence Digest.(22) In 1954 Common Cause's Advisory Board included: Dame Florence Hancock and Tom O'Brien (both ex Presidents of ...

... ) ever saw as compromises the neocon/corporate views on the economy and social welfare which they espoused long before they had the White House in sight. The Clintons discovered that attacking the poor and the trade unions was electorally popular way back in their days in Arkansas. For a British reader this tale has resonance, for the Blair/Brown faction within the Labour Party copied the Clintons' 'New Democrats' strategy right down the line,1 the only real difference being that the opposition to the changes within Labour put up more of a fight than the opposition in the Democrats and the American unions.2 As the author documents Clinton's positions, changes and backtracking, he shows ...

... from the university to the warehouse reduced to a new servile status. 'Greedy bosses such as Ashley', Skinner writes, 'are why I shall be a socialist as long as I breathe'. What is needed to deal with the likes of Ashley are 'new employment and trade union rights'. But he doesn't explain why the Blair and Brown Labour governments did not introduce such legislation between 1997 and 2010. The book's best chapter is on the 1984-85 miners' strike, which he describes as 'the most honourable strike I have ever taken part in'. Men went on strike to save other men's jobs, enduring immense hardship, the daily abuse of the press and ...

In June 2001 she became Parliamentary Under- Secretary of State in the Department for Education and Skills and in September 2004 Parliamentary Under-Secretary in the Department for Constitutional Affairs. This was followed by becoming a Privy Councillor in 2006 and Parliamentary Under- Secretary of State at the new Ministry of Justice in May 2007.

... the MPC was doing precisely what it was designed to prevent politicians from doing: trying to maintain demand in the economy by tweaking interest rates and stimulating consumer spending. In his letter to the Bank of England in May 1997, 'The new monetary policy framework', announcing the formation of the MPC and setting out its terms of reference, Brown referred to Labour's manifesto commitment that they would 'ensure that decision-making on monetary policy is more effective, open, accountable and free from short-term political manipulation'. (emphasis added) 'Short term political manipulation' is precisely what Eddie George is describing. Gordon Brown gave away the right of the chancellor of the exchequer to ...
