31. The view from the bridge (Winter 2009/2010) [Lobster #58 (Winter 2009/2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... Andrew about 'agents' in the Labour Party and trade unions: KGB officer under cover talks to this or that MP/union official and claims them as 'agents'. This makes him (or her but usually him) look good, justifies his/her overseas posting and enables him/her to claim some more expenses. A right-wing coup A meeting held between Lord Mountbatten of Burma, several senior journalists and government advisers has long been the foundation for claims that a plot existed in 1968 to depose Wilson and to replace him with an interim government led by Mountbatten. 'Senior journalists and government advisors?' As far as we know the meeting in 1968 was actually between Mountbatten ...

... recurred. Who is she fooling herself or her readers? I find it hard to tell: so much of it reads like Mary Poppins meets Adrian Mole. For example, she describes how she travels with a largely American group of Aspen Institute people to meet the Shah of Iran whose 'father had occupied the throne in a bloodless military coup'. Wasn't there just a bit more to the CIA's Operation Ajax than that, Shirley? Or this. When arriving for the well-trailed and hugely publicised meeting with fellow Gang members Roy Jenkins and William Rodgers at David Owen's Limehouse home in 1981 to publish their joint declaration, she says: 'I had failed to appreciate the media interest ...

... defector). Thus among the network's members there was the picture of a trade union movement manipulated if not run by the Soviet- funded CPGB and a Labour Party, in turn funded largely by the trade unions, headed by someone who might be a Soviet stooge.10 Labour took office again in 1974 and there followed two years of talks of coups, surveillance, disinformation and smears against members of the Labour government, climaxing with Wilson's retirement.1 1 In the midst of this Mrs Thatcher became leader of the Conservative Party, was briefed by the anti-subversion network and apparently took on board the Soviet conspiracy theory. Her use of the expression 'the enemy within' about the NUM was a barely ...

... . Other members were T Dan Smith, Leader of Newcastle City Council (a local authority that, more than any other, opted for US style redevelopment during this period) and Oleg Kerensky, a noted bridge engineer. Oleg Kerensky was the son of Alexander Kerensky, briefly Prime Minister of Russia in 1917, until ousted in a Bolshevik coup. T. Dan Smith actually began his political career in the Revolutionary Communist Party a significant UK Trotskyist group with Gerry Healy, Ted Grant et al, where he learnt the importance of a tightly organised and disciplined political machine. One wonders if Smith and Kerensky Jnr. discussed politics while serving on 'Traffic in Towns'. ...

... know little and would have difficulty checking. In this situation the reviewer heads for familiar territory and Cottrell has included the anti-Labour events of the 1960s and 70s which I know pretty well; and his account is error-strewn and fanciful. In the first two pages of that section he conflates events of the 1960s with the 1970s. He has a coup being plotted by David Stirling's GB75 in 1974. For this there is no evidence and he offers none. Stirling was preoccupied by the 'left threat' in the trade unions; and GB75, if it ever really existed it might just been a psy-ops job; all we saw were some bits of paper was talking of stepping ...

I was talking to a City source yesterday (one who is strongly opposed to the investment bankers 'soft coup' of Westminster and Whitehall). He said that under New Labour, H.M. Treasury had been 'utterly captured' by the investment banking industry. He said it had happened through subscription to a ludicrously flawed ideology, the 'revolving door', secondments, quiet lobbying etc, and often if you are in foyer of 1 Horse Guards ...

... intentioned, technocratic centrists, engaged in their eternal pursuit of a more rational, less party-centred politics? Or does the presence of all those former Blair staffers and Blair's chief financial backer, Lord Sainsbury suggest that it is a kind of Blairite revenge on Gordon Brown, the final method used to drag him down after all the attempted coups in 2008-2010 came to nought, foundering against the traditional mainstream loyalties of the Labour Party (loyalties ingrained, ironically, after the 1931 debacle)? Or was the brokering by the Institute of Government of O'Donnell's arrangements in 2009 an attempt by Sainsbury and his friends to ensure that Labour stayed in office after 2010? Did they mistakenly think ...

In an interview in The Independent, Jack Straw emphasised that they were quite different from Colonel Callan's cut-throat mercenaries in Angola in the 1970s.4 4 The sanitised public image was tarnished, however, when Sandline were implicated in a bungled military coup plot in Equatorial Guinea linking Simon 43 <www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Executive_Outcomes> 44 <www.independent.co.uk/news/world/politics/mercenaries-may-be- peacekeeping-force-says-straw-6605 02.html> Mann of Executive Outcomes to Mark Thatcher.

... result of an arson attack, and possibly racially motivated. The inquest into their deaths took place at County Hall in May 1981. There is no mention at all of this in the book though in May 1981 Livingstone could perhaps be forgiven for missing the event given that he was then fully occupied (at County Hall) in the coup that removed Andrew Mackintosh as leader of the GLC. The reader may also reflect that it is curious that Livingstone, Abbot and their little band of Trotskyist foot soldiers focussed on the case of Stephen Lawrence whilst being absolutely silent about Damilola Taylor, a young black victim of one of the large number of nasty black gangs in London. ...
