1. Nobody told us we could do this [Lobster #64 (Winter 2012) (free)] [Free Issue]
... It appears that Brown doggedly tried to keep in with News International despite their interference in his private affairs, but did not impress. He was not regarded by Murdoch as 'a winner' and Murdoch, who likes to be on the winning side, therefore switched support to Cameron. innuendo.6 It led in due course to the emergence of Nick Clegg who conformed to the contemporary UK template for the leaders of political parties: boyish good looks, an automatic default to free market policies and a generally centre right, suburban outlook. Clegg defeated his closest rival Chris Huhne by a tiny margin, with a significant number of pro-Huhne votes being discounted.7 In his book Rob Wilson MP points out ...

... be the beginning of adult politics. This stuff Balls is giving us is just baby talk. Addendum: open mouth, stick foot in A classic case of the curse of the commentators has struck me. A week or so after I wrote in the paragraph above, 'But no mainstream British politician will argue for raising taxes', Nick Clegg and Vince Cable of Liberal Democrats did just that. Cable went so far as to actually spell out the truth: 'The truth is more taxes will be needed – to contribute to deficit reduction and also to address unacceptable inequalities.

... ..when the Liberal Democrats had been offered and declined briefings with the Treasury and the Bank of England. Governor Mervyn King had been on standby to speak to negotiators.’ (p. 164) A gap had opened between what the Liberal-Democrats were saying in their election campaign and its literature and what their leader was thinking. 'Even during the election, Clegg had been moving on the issue- but without telling the electorate. He later told the BBC that he had changed his view during the general election: "Remember between March and the actual general election, a financial earthquake occurred on our European doorstep."'(p. 168) 'One Clegg aide said: "The thing ...

... , white English organisations. And it is a matter of great regret that the UK lacks robust political structures and processes that can resist crises instigated by unrepresentative minorities. End game? T he position of those regretting recent developments in the UK is a mixture of public hand-wringing and private, desperate, sotto voce soundings-out of possible allies. Nick Clegg makes vague statements about wanting a Government of National Unity. But Clegg, who did a deal with the Conservatives in which very little was put in writing, and who supported Osborne's fatuous 'deficit reduction' tactics, may well be seen by many as being part of the problem, rather than part of the solution. In any case ...

... New Labour. When Peter Oborne wrote of the political class (Lobsters passim) being remote from the rest of us he couldn't have even guessed of the legal lengths this power couple would go to prevent even modest journalistic inquiry and disclosure. At the time of the awards Marr was using his Sunday morning BBC show to press LibDem leader Nick Clegg for details of his private life. The other award given to Marr by the Broadcasting Press Guild in April was in recognition of his powers of discovery for his documentary series History of Modern Britain. The Westminster village The Marr-Ashleys are not the only couple to prosper in the small but influential political circle around Westminster in the New Labour years ...

... wherefores here, it is interesting to see where his politics of conscience lead him. The book has a Postscript where he actually argues that some good might come from the LibDems being in coalition with the Tories. Still a 'poor innocent fool' I'm afraid, Bob! Quite how someone of Marshall-Andrews' experience could be taken in by Nick Clegg, Vince Cable and the rest of them is anyone's guess. What does he think now, one wonders? Much less interesting is Mark Seddon's Standing for Something. This is a bit of a surprise as one would have expected a much better book from the former editor of Tribune. Instead, the book does not really know where ...

Or bad....If you thought the secret state only used its techniques against the radical left, take heart! The Evening Standard Diary 13 June 2001 reported that the diaries of Private Lee Clegg, convicted for the murder of two joy riders in Northern Ireland, and a minor cause célèbre for the right and the British Army, disappeared in the mail despite being sent by registered special delivery.

... - left, social democracy of its sister parties in Europe, and to recast it instead as a free market, centre-right party with a few 'left' trimmings. It is known, for instance, that even if Brown had been re-elected in 2010 he would have pursued a programme of budget cuts not dissimilar to those adopted by Cameron and Clegg, but would have spread them out over a 49 Winter 2010 longer period of time. In this scenario what does the Labour Party stand for?24 Politics as patronage One of the oddities of contemporary UK politics is how much it resembles the way business was transacted in the 18th century. A system has developed where patronage and privilege ...

... The Cuntocracy William Clark W hy not call the present political system a 'cuntocracy'? This is not, as it might seem, just a reaction to the advent of someone as painfully fraudulent as Nick Clegg. We need a new name for not just what the political class do to us because of greed and stupidity; we need a term that advances the idea of social organisation as something innate in people. It should combine a description of the reality of our place in such a society with an accurate discription of the nature of the society. Cuntocracy describes the reality.1 By calling our society a cuntocracy we return power to the ordinary people; we give the people a ...
