101. At Her Majesty's Secret Service, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... only have been related to the Defendant by past (or present) officers.... incidents, operations, investigations and other matters which have not previously been made public.' You can't buy an endorsement better than that, thanks very much. And if 'the Establishment' was cross with 'West' it didn't stop him becoming a Conservative MP; and under Margaret Thatcher, who hated dishers of dirt and secrets. So, for me, 'West' has always been a puzzle: a conservative (and Conservative) historian of spookery with ambiguous relations with the services about which he was writing. I bought his first books back in the days when there were so few ...

102. The 1975 Referendum on Europe, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... Meanwhile the 'pros', containing all the centrists who had been promoted by the media as the 'sensible' people, had tons of money and some covert help from the British secret state in the shape of IRD. The only bits of interest are an entertaining account by Alan Sked of his career as a eurosceptic and this snippet from former Conservative MP Richard Body: 'Carefully selected people were invited to luncheon and dinner...to hear speakers give what they claimed to be confidential briefings "off the record". The real reason which could not be told publicly for our entry to the common market was because our intelligence service had learned the Soviet Unions had plans to invade ...

103. Good-bye Tony [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... civil liberties or the social gains made through struggle. Unfortunately how right was I to be. Ironically it might be this worship of the 'wealthy' which might be the undoing of Blair as he ends his period in office mired by the honours scandal. The reason that the Economist gave for backing his re-election, that he was the best conservative on offer was totally true; but even die-hard conservatives must have been shocked at his totally supine attitude to the Bush administration. He provided legitimacy to the Bush regime's worst excesses and made them an easier sell to sceptical Americans. Propping-up one of the most repressive and imperialistic regimes (Iraq, Guantanamo Bay etc.) that America has ...

104. Travesty: The trial of Slobodan Milosevic, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... Last| Contents| Next Issue 12 Travesty: The trial of Slobodan Milosevic and the corruption of international justice John Laughland London and Ann Arbor: Pluto Press; 2007, £14.99 (UK) $24.95 (US), p/b Laughland is an interesting figure, whose writing appears in media across the ideological spectrum, from the conservative right to The Guardian and here, Pluto Press. It is thus a little hard to identify his politics. Three years ago David Aaronovitch wrote about him. (14)Aaronovitch noted that Laughland is European Director of the European Foundation whose patron is Margaret Thatcher, and concluded by describing Laughland (and his associates) as 'right-wing anti-state ...

... , it must be said, of radical critical scholarship to investigate their power. Nobody could accuse Rubinstein of either muckraking or radicalism. His awareness of 'class' is confined to an interest in whether fortunes are inherited or acquired in one generation, and his interest in 'politics' concerns only which parties the rich support. His approach is unquestioningly conservative. This edition is an update of the author's now classic book from 1981 on the history of the super-rich in Britain. It coincided with the rise of so-called 'Thatcherism', and with an academic debate around the apparent paradox of industrial decline and the rise of an 'enterprise culture'. He has added some new information and an extra ...

106. The secret of the 1917 ‘Balfour declaration’ [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... up a 'moderate' draft. It is this that was the basis for the 'Balfour Declaration'. Balfour presented the case to the Cabinet; he gave the main reasons (not including the original strategic ones): in the ensuing debate, Milner, Lloyd George, Smuts, and Barnes were all in favour. Bonar Law (bourgeois Conservative) was neutral and Curzon (aristocratic Conservative) was the only one to oppose it. The decision to publish was on October 31. After this debate, Balfour communicated the outcome to Lord Rothschild for handing to the Zionist Federation on November 2 (the text, as we now have it, is in fact this letter). ...

107. Blairusconi: populism and elite rule [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... of crony capitalism has fed the wave of cynicism that sweeps western democracies. As Tom Bentley and Paul Miller from think-tank Demos wrote in 2004: 'The European parliamentary elections in June illustrated the critical state of popular politics in Britain, the world's oldest parliamentary democracy. For those (few) paying attention, it became increasingly obvious that Labour and Conservatives were struggling to find enough activists to maintain a campaign. Soon after new figures showed that membership of the Labour Party had slumped again, shedding 25,000 in six months.' Most historians of the Labour Party and of New Labour agree on several key facts. First, that Tony Blair has transformed the Labour party unrecognisably. ...

108. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... wants its theoretical ideology of rights and duties to develop into something like the 'republican virtue' of the European Left. Most of us can no longer take this hysteria very seriously. New Labour, and the state with which it is so intertwined, is clearly intellectually bankrupt. The instinctive common sense of the British helps explain both why the Conservatives were some 5-8 points ahead of the polls by the Spring of 2007 and why they remain equally suspicious of Cameron. Women, who have a very much finer sense of what is real and what is not than many male intellectuals, were disproportionately polling for Cameron if not necessarily with enthusiasm. But all the theorising by think tanks about ...

... Wallace and the Information Policy unit in Northern Ireland, which was then still a very sensitive official secret.() His career went into the toilet for that. Fast forward twenty years, and with his eye for a story that will get up the right peoples' noses, Dowling began preparing a TV programme about the politics of nature conservation in Africa. After being lobbied by the Great and the Good, at the last minute Channel 4 pulled the plug on the programme and this essay by Dowling is both the story of that event and some of the script plus further research. At its heart is the presence of intelligence personnel in international nature conservation. I note in ...

A few weeks later I was invited to have lunch with GKY and Eric Lancasterat the Caledonian Club in Halkin Street, SW1. Eric Lancaster was a Justice of the Peace and a Conservative trade unionist. Some time later I found that my name had appeared on Tory Action stationery as a committee member, which was a surprise. My work for Tory Action consisted of organising 'write-ins' drafting a letter which I would copy to some of the correspondents with a request that they write to their MP or a minister ...
