... politicians were conned by the bankers. I have written about this episode in more detail in 'Well, how did we get here?' in Lobster 60. 22 Ironically, while some of this was generated by concern at rising unemployment, it was also Heath's belief that the UK economy should be going at full tilt when it entered the EEC and faced competition from other EEC members. 23 This took place in an environment in which capital largely America corporations was mounting a sustained campaign against the idea of state management of the economy and for a return to the 'free market'. This is described in Sydney Blumenthal, The Rise of the Counter Establishment (New York ...

... ambitions for a monetary system governed only by market forces. According to the ideology, market forces must be beyond the reach of any European state. (p. 83) This is true but there is politics here, too; the EU is as much a political as an economic project. One of the ideas behind the (then) EEC was the belief that the (West) German 'problem' could be only be solved by enmeshing it deeply with its neighbours. Thus the EEC-EU project. But thanks to the particular nature of (West) German society and its economy,3 (West) Germany became the dominant economic force in Europe and was able to extract a ...

... . I sent the Evans-Pritchard article to Professor Scott Newton and he responded: 'There's quite a bit of literature on this subject. The argument is an accurate one as far as it goes. But it does ignore the European dimension, that is to say the acceptance by the governments of the six nations who formed the ECSC and then the EEC that political and economic integration was the best way to continue what the fine historian Alan Milward called 'the European rescue of the nation-state'. This nation-state was the post-war model, committed to full employment, economic growth, modernization and social justice. It was not the liberal version (basically a customs union) favoured by the US Government ...

Thus the AES recommended that the UK should leave the EEC and also (mistakenly) accused the Conservatives of being the party of increased taxation.2 When the UK voted to stay in EEC in June 1975 the central part of this approach became obsolete. However, the AES remained a prop of left politics, being revived as an alternative by Benn in the summer of 1976 during the negotiations for an ...

5. The EU: A Corporatist Racket (book review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... There is a chapter on Bilderberg, which began as an issue for the right in the 1970s and was then briefly of interest to the American left.2 But this chapter on Bilderberg tells us nothing not available on the Net and in many other books. The real point of this book are the chapters on events prior to the 1975 referendum on EEC membership. This is the best account I have read of the campaign run by the pro-EEC lobby in this country. The state, including the Information Research Department (IRD), the quasi-independent anti- subversion, anti-communist propaganda organisation, co- 1 The ACUE/European Movement, for example, was first discussed in 'How the European ...

... happen: not because the civil service obstructed Benn (which they did) but because there was no support for it within the Cabinet; nor, critically in the British system, from the prime minister (nor, had they been asked, from the electorate). Prime Minister Wilson diverted Benn's energies into a referendum on membership of the EEC and, having seen that off, retired at 60 (as he had always told his friends he would), before the dementia which was in his family affected him. Through the core political story the author intercuts some of the wider cultural events on the left of the period: the rise of feminism, anti-fascism, squatting, ...

... all deeply depressing at one level and hilarious at another. Based on nothing more than a hunch about the shape of the future, a Labour government is pissing away what was left of the manufacturing base after the Thatcher governments had a go at it. This country's fishing industry was largely wrecked as part of the price of entering the EEC in 1972. The steel industry was 'rationalised', and, like coal, was mostly closed in the 1980s. Agriculture is being reduced under 'set aside' schemes and another chunk will vanish as a result of the foot and mouth outbreak; and a further section will go as the result of the collapse of farming incomes in the ...

In this case it wasn't fearful warnings about 'missing the European boat', but other terrors including more real terrorism to come, according to Lord Robertson of Port Ellen if the Scots voted to let go of nanny London and inch towards the removal of Trident from Holy Loch.1 The ex-NATO Secretary General, ...

Richie may not remember that Gould was one of the leading anti-EEC figures in the Labour Party of the 1980s and never believed in the free movement of people or the rest of the EEC/EU package. Milton Friedman said over twenty years ago that you could have open borders or a welfare state, but not both.68 Reason? A welfare state is organised for the benefit of its citizens: open borders gives you a mix of citizens and residents, legal and illegal. This generates conflict, for example when social housing ...
