11. Well, how did we get here? (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Issue]
... 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 Reform League before the ...

... 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 of the ...

... 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 ...

14. The Clandestine Caucus (1996) [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... from the pre-war system.... but there now existed formal, powerful, employers' institutions, a fully fledged Ministry of Labour, and a TUC [Trades Union Congress] increasingly accustomed to dealing in the political arena, wedded to a major political party which, almost alone in Europe, encompassed the majority of the non- Conservative working class. 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 ...

However, Labour Party plc is more than a simple history of party financing, it seeks to show that Labour, or should we say New Labour has become a slave to the private sector, thus turning its back on its roots.

... 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 cohesion marked only by fits of obstinacy alternating with climb-down ...

... sacrificed the News of the World, although some have argued that this was actually a shrewd commercial decision as the Sun on Sunday is a lot cheaper to produce; and he has turned on Cameron's government with a vengeance. On 25 March the Sunday Times broke the 'cash for access' story with accompanying video, forcing the resignation of the Conservative Party's co- treasurer, the appropriately named Peter Cruddas. This was accompanied by a systematic savaging of George Osborne's budget in the Sun. It was condemned as a budget that looked after millionaires but that clobbered 'ordinary Brits'. And on 9 April, the Sun could proudly boast that 'Labour's Shadow Chancellor writes for the Sun'. ...

... , Wandsworth (a borough Labour lost and where Paul Ekins, now of Green Alliance, ran for the Save London Alliance) and in Westminster. The biggest upset came in Hammersmith and Fulham where the Save London Alliance put up 18 candidates. Their intervention resulted in a split vote in Addison ward, where Labour lost 2 seats to the Conservatives. Because of this the council became hung with the balance of power held by 2 Liberal councillors. After a week's deliberations locally and with their national HQ (and substantial press coverage in The Evening Standard and The Guardian) the Liberals voted to put the Conservatives into power and Labour into opposition. With the skids already under the Callaghan ...

... the one hand, there are the Churchillians, who regard him as one of the great men of the twentieth century, who dominates modern times and deserves personal credit for having saved Britain from defeat in the Second World War and the world from Nazi tyranny. This is still very much the dominant viewpoint and forms one of the cornerstones of conservative ideology in post-war Britain. The Churchill myth allowed the Conservative Party, much of which was tainted by appeasement, to confiscate the Second World War and make it their own. This process has continued down to the present day with the likes of Margaret Thatcher, who, having singularly failed to contribute to the war effort at the time ...

... ) November 1991 Last| Contents| Next Issue 22 The Anglo-Rhodesian Society Robin Ramsay Introduction While researching the Rhodesia chapters of our book, I came across the Anglo-Rhodesian Society, and discovered that, as usual with the British right, there was no substantial account of it. Here is the result of an initial trawl. Future historians of the Conservative Party may discover that upon its heart in the 1960s "Rhodesia" was indelibly graven.(1) With the arrival of Mrs Thatcher in 1975 came "the New Right", with about as much claim to be called "new" as had the "New Left' a decade earlier. Although the Tory right has a ...
