191. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... like his wife's father, gravitated to a Brussels job when Mandelson became an EU commissioner. Lord Thomson, who shared his son-in-law's strong interest in defence and Europe, became a European commissioner in 1972, one of the many Atlanticist Gaitskellites to find the Labour Party an increasingly inhospitable home as the Vietnam War, the Chile coup, and other US foreign policies failed to chime with younger party members as they had with Thomson's older post-war and early Cold War generation. Lord Thomson finished his life as a Liberal Democrat and, apart from several business interests, had a spell chairing the Independent Broadcasting Authority. Lord Holme of Cheltenham, who chaired the successor ...

192. Briefly [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... warrior, supporter of American corporate imperialism. This is strikingly clear not least in US policy towards Latin America. Klein simply omits JFK's Alliance for Progress. Yes, it achieved little in its short life but symbolically it was of huge significance; and LBJ's prompt dumping of the policy and the subsequent US support for a wave of repression and coups showed how much it might have mattered. Does the perception of JFK matter? Compared to global warming, no, of course not. But that isn't the only item on the agenda. I think it does matter. Because there is another America beyond Dumb-fuckistan and the know-nothing culture of its white working-class ...

... of the Special Branch.(11) Hosken does not spell out either the curious mindset of the ultra-left in the 1970s or how rational at the time some of their ultimately irrational views may have seemed.(12)Knight and Livingstone were operating during a time when the Allende government had been overthrown in a CIA-backed coup and the Salazar regime in Portugal had collapsed overnight in 1974, to give but two examples of dramatic change during those years. Something like this happening in the UK through a combination, perhaps, of instability in Northern Ireland, industrial relations problems and general economic difficulties, exercised the imagination of many during this period; and was by ...

... worth the money they paid to him. '( 15) Harken's fortunes picked up around about the time George Bush Snr. won the keys to the White House. A major investment came from Harvard University's endowment fund, on whose board of directors sat an old Bush family friend, Robert Stone Jnr. Then in 1990 came Harken's biggest coup – winning a Bahrain deal against bids from oil giants Amoco and Chevron. This was despite the fact that Harken had never been engaged in international oil exploration before, and would need a significant injection of cash to be able to undertake the work. It seems that in preparation for this deal, Harken established an offshore subsidiary in 1989 ...

... were involved in establishing the Soil Association. Instead, the argument went, the contemporary organic movement had been created by a group of radical, leftist, alternative anti-urbanites who had rebelled against Eve Balfour and her aristocratic cronies, established the more vigorous and practical organisations, the Organic Growers Association and British Organic Farmers; and staged a coup within the Soil Association which revitalised it and made it more relevant to the late-twentieth century. Some of the leading figures – Peter Segger and Dr. Nic Lampkin, for instance – were active in CND, and clashed with the Association President Lord O'Hagan, a Conservative MEP. Angela Bates, a Vice President of the Association ...

Matt Taibbi, 'The Big Takeover', at <www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/26793903/the_big_takeover> is notable for an intell-igible account of CDOs and CDSs and his view of what has happened since the crash as a kind of financial coup. This view is also held by Simon Johnson in his 'The Quiet Coup'. See note 16. Michael Lewis is the author of Liars Poker, about the related events in the 1980s. His 'The End' at <www.portfolio.com> examines the road to ruin through the eyes of the tiny minority in the ...

... of America to avoid taxation and President Kennedy's attempts to regulate their activities, Britain became the offshore banking centre of choice for Wall Street. And thirdly, Britain has been useful as diplomatic cover for American power. For sixty years Britain has 'stood by' its ally, through the slaughter in Vietnam, half a million dead Indonesians, military coups all over South America in the 60s and 70s, hundreds of thousands of deaths in Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua in the 1980s, right up to supporting it while it killed somewhere between half a million and a million Iraqis. Britain has been a bomber base, a tax avoidance centre for US banks and a diplomatic fig leaf ...

198. Moscow on the Hudson? [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... and Arctic meeting points; destinies pursued With God On Our Side and many more. Briefly, some things which the book does not contain. Although covert operations and democracy (in America) are acknowledged as uneasy bedfellows there is no 'deep politics' in the analysis in regard to the many political assassinations, engin-eered wars, foreign coups and the wider Machiavellian activities of the rogue and secret state. The official 9-11 narrative also goes unchallenged and the link between corporate interests and CIA activity, for example, is not explored in substantial depth. Academics will find lacunae in the lack of conventional social science explanatory concepts, particularly those familiar with ideology critique. The ...

... is not Nazi Germany but..... In this milieu Evans focuses on MI5. He is not a fan. He shows their expansion, their lack of accountability and their incompetence. He has a chapter, 'The sub-verting of Britain', in which he reminds us of Brigadier Kitson's ideas, the talk of a coup in The Times in 1974, General Sir Walter Walker's Civil Assistance and 'the Wilson plots'. This isn't done very well – not enough detail and no indication from Evans that this field has been ploughed already – but for a formerly mainstream journalist at an establishment broadsheet he has taken on board quite a bit of the radical agenda of ...
