131. The Northern Front, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Its spokespersons, accused by supporters of the invasion of belonging to a left that no longer welcomed the downfall of fascism, were predictably dismissed as anti-American. Subsequently, in July 2007, Charles Glass wrote in The Nation about what he knew well in those heady days during which he composed his diary: 'Washington's ideologically charged neo-conservative coterie possessed little or no understanding of the Middle East, allowing it to dismiss the easily predictable consequences of invading and occupying Iraq. ' A defensible charge, to go with the authentic voice of the reporter who has given up much to provide an antidote to the weekly diet served up by many columnists 'to a well-fed public ...

... ) and is treated by the mainstream media as a credible intelligence-gathering organisation. In Britain, its agents were not, as one might expect from a hard-line, law and order Home Secretary such as John Reid, arrested and expelled from the country, but are instead welcome guests, mixing freely with both New Labour and Conservative politicians as well as maintaining an intimate relationship with Britain's own security services.(3 ) The CIA's role in the overthrow of governments is well-known, beginning with the 1953 coup in Iran and the 1954 coup in Guatemala. Since then the organisation has been involved in coups in South Vietnam in 1963, in Brazil in 1964 ...

' 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 ...

134. 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".

135. Good-bye Tony [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... 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. ...

... , 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 ...

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- ...

... 'Money talks and bullshit walks'. And in this case it's taxpayers' money, given to the arms corporations by politicians who then get a small piece of it back from them. He sees the current situation as the outcome of struggle between factions of the American ruling class, between what he calls neo-liberal multilateralism and neo-conservative unilateralism. The multilateralists were exemplified by the Trilateral Commission who, in the 1970s, during Jimmy Carter's term, had a go at creating a – here comes the unavoidable phrase – new world order, based on cutting arms spending and détente with the Soviet bloc. 'But the Trilateralists's honeymoon was cut short by powerful political rivals in the ...

... to draw 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). ...

... 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. ...
