... of an enjoyable but faintly disreputable 'affluence' epitomised by the 'candy floss summer' of 1959, the 'never had it so good' era of easy credit and beer in the fridge. Labour's return to office in 1964 (narrowly) and, more convincingly, after a second election in 1966, saw many continuities with the post-1960 Conservative administrations but also some important differences: 'Macmillan's version of social democracy notwithstanding, the Conservative Party and its allies retained both their connections to the City and their commitment to its economic internationalism. Its core voters were still linked to finance, the service sector and light industry. ' He goes on: 'Set against this was the Labour coalition ...

... form of European integration without British participation, was adopted.(2 ) The 1948-56 policy of 'limited liability', changed between 1956 and 1960 from 'partial engagement', participation in a British-determined integration process, to 'significant engagement', participation as determined by the original members, and ultimately to a decision by Harold Macmillan's Conservative Government to opt for membership. Having made the decision, Macmillan set about swinging the Conservative Party and the Commonwealth behind it. Between the autumn of 1961 and January 1963, a team under the leadership of Edward Heath negotiated the terms. Public support for European unification, including Britain, stood at 78 per cent in 1954. By ...

... Contents | Next Issue 27 Mrs Thatcher, North Sea oil and the hegemony of the City Robin Ramsay Introduction I began writing this in the early 1980s. If you were then reading the Guardian or the Observer, and knew a little, simple economics, it didn't take genius to notice that while the UK's manufacturing economy was being decimated by Conservative Party economic policy, the City of London was booming. More interestingly, and less frequently commented on, the UK economy as a whole was becoming self-sufficient in oil, without apparently gaining anything from it. Ah-ha, I thought, I smell a big rip-off. I wonder how it's being done? ...

... of the Empire and the triumph of socialism at home and Bolshevism abroad. This, after all, had been the rationale behind Chamberlain's appeasement policy.(2 ) In addition to what Griffiths calls "Fellow Travellers of the Right', there are a handful of socialists featured here. Some, like Stokes, were more Right wing than Conservatives like Anthony Eden and Harold Macmillan. Others, like Maxton and the Independent Labour Party group, operated from a conviction that war was a product of imperialism, which in itself was the highest stage of capitalism. It was therefore the duty of the working class and its representatives to mobilise for peace (in any case this argument faded ...

... Making of Economic Policy' in Hugh Thomas (ed.) Crisis in the Civil Service (London: Anthony Blond, 1968). 64 Winter 2010 was, to some extent, kept under control. Britain's decline from 10th in the OECD 'league tables' of economic performance to its present 19th began in 1980, the year that the Conservative Government scrapped the remaining controls on overseas investment of British-generated wealth.4 Although this issue no longer makes it onto the main agendum of this society, the conflict between the interests of the domestic economy and the overseas lobby is one of the major themes in British economic politics in the 20th century. From the rise of Tariff ...

... forward by the Club of Rome were picked up and publicised in the UK by The Ecologist, a magazine that first appeared in late 1969, edited and published by Edward Goldsmith, with funding from his brother James. James Goldsmith was also active in British party politics, supporting the manifesto that was discussed and adopted by Edward Heath and the Conservative Shadow Cabinet at their meeting in Selsdon Park in early 1970. This marked (at the time) a strong shift to the right and a significant move away from the post-1945 'Butskellite' consensus in the UK. It placed much less emphasis on the Welfare State and much more on what was thought to be the dynamic competitiveness ...

... be producing (sic) upon joining the Common Market. '( 17) For Heath and the little group around him EEC entry was all; the strategy was not just a 'dash for growth', but an attempt to rejig British capitalism in preparation for EEC entry. This was not widely understood at the time, even in the Conservative Party. Norman Tebbitt, for example, writing in the mid-1980s, looked back on the Heath 'U-turn' from the free market emphasis of Selsdon Man and saw 'a retreat into corporatism, and from there into a mishmash of ill-considered centralist and socialist hand-to-mouth devices with no intellectual nor political ...

... was a factor in the Hillsborough debacle and the alleged cover-up that followed....Let's remember, too, that five years before Hillsborough was the 'Battle of Orgreave' — when hundreds of officers clashed with protesters during the 1984 miners' strike. At the time it was natural for middle-of-the-road conservative people to believe the police portrayal of those miners as thugs. Evidence has emerged that the South Yorkshire Police may, in the post-battle investigations, have perverted the course of justice by lying through their teeth about the threat of violence offered to them.

At the same time, the government's apparatus for manipulating public opinion had grown inordinately, enabling it – on its own estimate – to confront the spectre of Bolshevism and survive. Lloyd George himself, searching always for a middle way in politics, had shifted away from Liberal radicalism towards a corporatism best described as the creation ...
