11. Classified, by Christopher Moran, (Book Review) (Summer 2013) [Lobster #65 Summer 2013) (free)] [Free Issue]
... in practice the state was willing to clobber little people e.g. the novelist Compton MacKenzie who revealed a handful of secrets about MI6 in a book in the 1930s but unwilling to do anything when prime minister Lloyd George took van loads of official (and thus secret) papers home while writing his memoirs. Later PMs, Eden, Churchill and Wilson followed this example. After the war we get accounts of the familiar controversies surrounding the publication of the diaries of Richard Crossman, Harold Wilson's memoirs, the Philby 'third man' story and the ABC trial in the 1970s; a detailed account of the hassles generated by the trickle of books which began in the early 1960s about ...

12. The Clandestine Caucus (1996) [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... If the USA leaned on the door, as Peter Weiler and what might loosely be called 'the left' believe, it was half open already and was never going to shut again. Into this domestic anti-communist climate came the USA's loans and the people and ideas, the strings attached to the money. From the first request from Churchill for clandestine assistance before America had officially entered the war, the U.S. 'aid' had come with strings attached. Despite his famous remark that he had not taken office to oversee the destruction of His Majesty's empire, Churchill had actually done precisely that to pay for the war: and the process continued after it. It was left ...

... aims and in the methods used to try and implement it, Robot, as it was called, was the prototype for later attempts to free the overseas lobby from the constraints of civil society. In the infantile jargon of the British political system, it was an attempt to 'bounce' the proposals through Cabinet, having already primed prime minister Churchill (who, like many other prime ministers, knew little about economics) .5 But after an intense struggle, described in detail by one ofthe participants, Donald Macdougall, the Robot proposals were rejected. Harold Macmillan, for example, called the proposals 'a bankers' ramp'. Undeterred, the same group tried to 'bounce' ...

14. I helped carry William Burroughs to the medical tent (Summer 2010) [Lobster #59 (Summer 2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... was later used as one of the broadcasting bases for its English language services. Many of these programmes featured William Joyce( 'Lord Haw Haw'), formerly a significant supporter of Sir Oswald Mosley. Joyce's talks, like Luxembourg's broadcasts in the 1930s, were extremely popular with audiences across the UK, much to the annoyance of the Churchill government.3 Plugge lost his seat in Parliament in the 1945 Labour landslide but retained his commercial interests. For some years in the 1940s the Attlee government and the Foreign Office made serious attempts, without success, to acquire broadcasting rights on Radio Luxembourg. This would have involved ending Luxembourg's transmissions to the UK (thus preserving the BBC monopoly) ...

15. Nobody told us we could do this [Lobster #64 (Winter 2012) (free)] [Free Issue]
... The Times by Chris Mullin on 19 March. The figures as given seem to suggest that if the UK wants a good quality, advanced, European-style economy then it needs to have a standard rate of income tax that is at or higher than 33%. However, the UK has not had this level of taxation since 1978. When Churchill started his second term (1951) the standard rate of income tax was 45%; when Macmillan became PM (1959) it was 42.5%; when Wilson started (1964) it was 38.75%. Heath reduced it to 33%, arguably the lowest level required to maintain public services at a good standard. In 1978 ...

... close to them, was also an SIS staple. My late father, an agent in the 1960s and 1970s, was puffed with pride when in the early 1960s he was invited to a private lunch by John Harvey MP the Commons' 'oil' man who was also former constituency chairman to Second World War Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. 'To think, he knew the Great Man!' my father would say in wonder. It is impossible to overestimate what the name 'Churchill' meant in those days. Gifts could also form part of what the SIS was offering. If, for example, a trusted agent advised it would be wise for the SIS to give ...

... most) to as many as 100,000 by 1910.(3) Simultaneously with these efforts the World Zionist Congress sought to influence other nations and to create a climate of opinion in favour of Jewish settlers. These were often portrayed as 'dynamic and European' in comparison to the rather indolent Arabs. As early as 1908, Winston Churchill MP came out in support of this and promoted the idea of a Jewish administered area in Palestine under the protection of the British Empire. During the First World War, the Zionist movement, unable to determine, particularly in 1916-1918, which of the adversaries might win, and being traditionally hostile to Russia and somewhat more friendly to Germany ...

... would mean there would be no resources left with which to defend the exchange rate; that foreign trade would have to be conducted in dollars or some other foreign currency; and that in such circumstances it was quite possible that unemployment would rise to three million. The present crisis was as grave as that of 1940 but there was 'no Winston Churchill waiting to take over'.(15)On 19 January King noted that 'a further devaluation was expected; six days later Maurice Allen said that the 'chances of...devaluation in February were fifty-fifty'; and David Bruce told King that he expected another devaluation, which would 'affect the whole world', though it might ...

19. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... Since drafting this article, John Reid has announced his return to the backbenches, evidently unable to serve a Brown administration in a senior position. This can be interpreted in a number of ways but one that will not be publicly admitted for political reasons is that the 'project' can be safeguarded much more effectively from a position where, like Churchill between the wars, a senior and respected figure can 'constructively criticise' any deviation from policy by the Prime Minister from the benches than he could from a position in office. In addition, by distancing himself from the Brown administration (while expressing the usual loyal support), John Reid can place himself in a position either to pitch ...

Adrian Kozlowski: A handful of vignettes: 1998-- Blair's photo in a local newspaper headlining Desert Fox, Iraq. An old man comments, 'That Blair's a big head. He thinks he's Winston Churchill.' 2004-- An interview on CNN as the Iraqi insurgency intensifies. The popular nationalist cleric al-Sadr gets mentioned: 'Well of course he's a fanatic,' responds Blair in tones of snobbish disdain. This native (three family members murdered by Saddam) frustrating perhaps the democratic mission of the white man? Blair reading out a ...
