261. Travesty: The trial of Slobodan Milosevic, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... 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- ...

... , 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 ...

263. The Political Economy of U.S. Militarism, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... '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). ...

265. 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 ...

266. Blairusconi: populism and elite rule [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... 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. ...

... John Negroponte, Henry Cisneros and Elliot Abrams. Currently it is presided over by Vin Weber, founder of the ultraconservative Empower America association and fundraiser for the presidential campaign of George W. Bush in the year 2000. Its executive director is Carl Gershman, a former Trotskyite responsible for the US Social Democrats and a member of the neo-conservative trend. Just how self-referential it all is can be indicated by: 'Unattributed quotes are taken from interviews conducted with NED and institute staffs. ' The NED's attempts to explain away its covert aims are at times laughable: 'As a leading State Department official noted upon returning from Moscow, Kremlin officials believe that the "U . ...

268. Fifth Column [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Callaghan Government in the 1960s and 1970s. The process of withdrawal started with the independence of India and Pakistan (widely celebrated in the UK media recently on its sixtieth anniversary), was confirmed by the failure of the last imperialist fling at Suez in 1956 and reached its coda in the bloody withdrawal from Aden. Even the Thatcher-Major Conservatives restricted themselves to support for UN and US-backed intervention after that date (Iraq, 1990/1991). The withdrawal was logical. The British economy was in no state to maintain the infrastructure for a global empire and modern capitalism no longer required that it hold territory to win markets. As the Treasury has found, military ...

269. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... disaster economy has been subject to none of this kind of far reaching discussion. (Naomi Klein, 2007) There are those who think Naomi Klein has sold out. According to Stephen Marshall's important but flawed book, Wolves in Sheep's Clothing, she's just another 'fallen liberal' who either provides ineffective and impotent criticism of the present neo-conservative order or actually feeds it. It's because of the essential truth in much of what Marshall says about former Left renegades in his book, that I decided to review it and Klein's new work together. My conclusion is that while Klein's acceptance of notions like 'capitalist globalisation' and 'new world orders' allude to the all-pervading impact ...

... Soames phone call (i .e . January 1997), Diana had taken the first (unwitting?) steps towards becoming a political figure by visiting Angola as part of an International Red Cross campaign against landmines. What would normally have been a strictly humanitarian gesture was given a political dimension by the fact that John Major's rapidly-deflating Conservative government had stalled repeatedly on banning landmines, whereas Labour was promising a foreign policy with 'an ethical dimension'. Declassified US diplomatic cables record that 'Government officials immediately scrambled to repair the public relations damage, and issued statements affirming the government's commitment to working toward a world-wide ban on landmines', adding that 'Labour Party officials used ...
