61. That option no longer exists (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Article]
... That option no longer exists: Britain 1974-76 John Medhurst Winchester: Zero Books, 2014, £11.99, p/b www.zero-books.net Rexamaining the mid-1970s from a Labour left perspective, as the author does, is an interesting idea. Once again we can read about: * the Communist Party's Liaison Committee for the Defence of Trade Unions, which resulted in the CP having 'an influence within the trade union movement vastly out of proportion to its numbers' (pp. 13/4 ); * the Institute for Workers' Control (chapter 3); * the decision of the Labour Party to abolish the proscription list ...

... Walden et al; joined the Financial Times; wrote a book on the Miner's strike; fell in love with Thatcherism; studied in the States; joined a think tank and St Antony's College (1996-99); and fronted for New Labour via the Foreign Policy Centre (1999 onwards). He is unclear when he left the Communist Party but by 1997 he was sitting next to John Bolton at the American Enterprise Institute talking about New Labour. Prior to his recent resignation, New Statesmen writers termed him the 'house reactionary', some sort of atavistic throwback to Paul Johnson, who also 'fitted in with the left for a spell'. Lloyd even talks of a ...

63. A War of Words: a Cold War Witness (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... an important meeting was held between Cabinet Secretary Norman Brook, Pat [Patrick] Dean representing the Foreign Office, the director of MI5, Mr (later Sir) Roger Hollis, and Norman Reddaway representing the IRD. At the end of it, Brook instructed Hollis to make available to the Foreign Office, with security collateral, intelligence about communist malpractices in the unions that could be used by IRD. This led, among other things, to the ousting of Foulkes and Haxell from the leadership of the electrical trade union. ' (p . 46) Several things worth noting here. If Mayhew is accurate, it is interesting to see that the Cabinet Secretary can instruct the ...

... Europe rebuilds with American money, buying American goods, employing the American urban masses. But the loans have American strings. Cue the 'regulators' -- good old Irving Brown et al -- - a regiment of CIA agents and Labour Attach├ęs to fund and steer the anti socialist wing of the European labour movement in the name of 'the communist threat'. This left revisionist thesis, specifically the wide-spread belief on the European Left that the shape of post-war unionism in Europe was largely down to the machinations of American agents like Irving Brown, is McShane's target. But he intends his narrow focus on the struggle within the international trade union movement to stand for ...

The most important problem the U.S . had was in the U.K .( 53) The Communist 'threat'A substantial section of the British secret state and its allies in the Conservative Party, business and the media believed, or found it useful to pretend to believe - the distinction is difficult to make - that British democracy, the state, and even the capitalist system was under threat from a resurgent left, spearheaded by the ...

... a West German subsiduary. (10) It was an important independent fund-raising mechanism for the Contras in Nicaragua and had produced a number of pro-Contra TV ads. From the start it had particularly strong ties (through McDonald and Singlaub) with the Conservative Action Group and also (through Singlaub) with the World Anti-Communist League and its numerous affiliates. (11) In May 1985 Linda Guell came over to Britain to organise and launch Western Goals (UK). Paul Masson, then a leading Young Conservative, was appointed its first Director and it initially had a Parliamentary Advisory Board which included MPs the Rev. Martin Smyth, Patrick Wall, Nicholas ...

67. Five at Eye [Lobster #17 (Nov 1988)]
... Guardian 15/5 /87 The full details of these various episodes, which are essential for a full understanding of the Wilson plots, will be revealed in a forthcoming Lobster book. It is worth noting that: The failure of the Groundnut Scheme was used as the basis of a smear campaign in 1951. Those tarnished included the former Communist John Strachey and his close friend Leslie Plummer, an East-West Trader. The scientific adviser to the scheme, and at the time a financial supporter of the Tribune, was Victor Rothschild. Attempts were made to raise the issue during the 1964 election, but Wilson, who had a very tenuous link to the scheme through the ...

... Soviets rejected this. They wanted a return to the 1939/1941 frontiers. Joachim Fest says that later peace discussions took place in Stockholm in September 1943. These proved equally abortive. By then the Soviets were insisting on their 1914 borders: i.e . with the Catholic east Poland, Belarus, Ukraine etc. left securely under communist control. (2 ) With no progress at ending the war and further Axis reversals now common, a dismayed Vatican sought solace elsewhere. They approached Britain, via a Father Dragonovic of the Croatian Red Cross, in January 1944, seeking support for what was called a Danube Confederation. This was actually a recasting of Intermarium, a ...

... of books about Italian politics recently, and almost none of them willing to answer the question "Why Italy? Why is Italy's political culture so firmly based on conspiracy and secrecy? A part of that answer must be Italy's role as the premier European site of the conflict between indigenous left-wing forces and NATO, the leading anti-communist/anti-socialist alliance. That this is part of the answer may explain why so few writers in the West want to answer the question. Of the books on Italy I have read recently only Stuart Christie's Stefano Delle Chiaie: Portrait of a Black Terrorist is willing to begin with the fact that most of the conspiracies, the ...

... that this fragment of Mayhew's 'may point the way to a completely new interpretation of anti-communism in Britain in the 1950s and 60s', and Lashmar and Oliver's chapter on IRD's domestic operations takes that contention a good deal further forward. The authors tell us that in 1956 the Conservative MP Douglas Dodds-Parker, a former anti-communist ally of Labour Foreign Secretary Bevin, had been appointed to the Foreign Office as Under-Secretary - and apparently in formal charge of liaison with IRD.(2 ) Dodds-Parker contacted IRD's Norman Redd-away who suggested using the files of the Home Region Committee 'which had been set up in the 1950s to gather information on ...
