It was later funded by the US government's National Endowment for Democracy. the AEU.90 Europe The social democratic wing of the Labour Party had two key positions: British membership of NATO and retention of British nuclear weapons, and membership of the EEC. After the defeat of CND at the Labour conference of 1961 it was European Economic Community (EEC) membership which became their great cause. With this achieved with the EEC referendum vote 'yes' in 1975, when it came to the ideological struggles within the Labour Party in the mid and late 1970s, in David Marquand's words, ...

12. Well, how did we get here? (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Issue]
... 1970. Heath had one overriding aim: British entry into the EEC.1 6 Although he had studied economics at Oxford as part of his degree, events would show that he had little understanding of the British economy. In the first year and a half of his government he appeared to believe that the best way to prepare the British economy for EEC entry was a dose of competition and freedom the traditional Tory Party ideas of getting the government off the backs of the producers, reducing taxation and so forth. In his innocence Heath seems to have believed that British capital was merely waiting for their cue from central government, and would rush to invest in the British economy. But ...

... left grew and industrial conflict grew. Wilson and Barbara Castle tried to reduce the unions' power with the 'In Place of Strife' proposals, but were seen off by the unions and the Parliamentary Labour left. Labour lost the election in 1970. In came Edward Heath who wanted to turn Britain into West Germany, with membership of the EEC, and a semi- corporate state in which the trade unions are embraced by the state in exchange for influence. (Essentially the same thing that Harold Wilson and Barbara Castle sought.) The trade unions resisted this embrace (registration under the Industrial Relations Act) and industrial conflict grew. The 'flying pickets' of the Yorkshire NUM ...

Once published, though, they attracted immense publicity and remained a critical feature of domestic UK political life, breathlessly anticipated each month by the media until the UK's entry into the EEC in 1973 when regular bulletins about how the Sterling Area was performing became somewhat less important.2 9 The mixture of assertions and assumptions that the Treasury deployed when dealing (with a Labour administration) looked unconvincing even in 1931.

15. The crisis [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... is 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 ...

... "sound", conservative Budget. And this is what they have.'(37) The reaction was favourable enough to lead to a Bank Rate reduction of 0.5 of a percentage point on 21 March. There was a warm international reception, too, with 'relief and satisfaction' being expressed by the OECD. (38) The EEC Six called the Budget 'courageous', with the European Commission forecasting a British balance of payments surplus by the end of the year.(39) The IMF were said to have been 'extremely gratified by the Budget, which fulfilled and perhaps exceeded all that Britain was expected to do restore payments equilibrium'. Sterling rallied strongly, and ...

... on the Welfare State and much more on what was thought to be the dynamic competitiveness of the UK private sector. A number of these policies less regulation, greater consumer credit, and a significant programme of industrial and commercial expansion led by the private sector were put into practice by the Conservative government in 1970-1971. Heath took Britain into the EEC in early 1973, a move that was designed to secure for the UK, in the longer term, the type of prosperous economy that was perceived to exist in the EEC. (Heath was an admirer of the German economic model in particular.) Unfortunately for Heath, due mainly to the support given by the US to Israel ...

18. Fantasy Island, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... which in a couple of pages they offer an analysis of NuLab's origins, tracing them back through the formation of the SDP to the pro-EEC campaign in the referendum of 1975. They see in these groups a common thread: the pretence that tough choices don't have to be made. They show that the pro-EEC campaign lied that membership of the EEC didn't mean change to this society; they show the SDP flunked the tough choices while pretending they had made them; and NuLab has followed in their footsteps. But why stop the historical trail at 1975? The pro-EEC group can be traced back to the Gaitskellites in the early 1950s; and this is the American tendency whose central claim ...

... say 'West's' thesis has not been substantiated: no foreign secretary has discussed the relationship with SIS in any detail. We simply don't know; nor is it obvious to me how any foreign secretary could know if the spooks decided to deceive him/her. There are, as always, interesting snippets. 'When Britain's application to join the EEC was finally accepted he [Oldfield] was allowed to place some of his personnel on the personal staffs of British commissioners, making George Thomson's private office in Strasbourg a useful source of information about the community.' (p. 143 but unsourced) But it's all whiter than white. He describes Maurice Oldfield gathering his staff together in ...

... had been to Leonard Schapiro's lectures at LSE in 1973-4; Schapiro was an old friend of his. He told me a little about Tory Action and gave me two files of documents to read. I was amazed at the content of these files which had little to do with subversion but showed an obsession with immigration and the EU (the EEC at that time). A few weeks later I was invited to have lunch with GKY and Eric Lancasterat the Caledonian Club in Halkin Street, SW1. Eric Lancaster was a Justice of the Peace and a Conservative trade unionist. Some time later I found that my name had appeared on Tory Action stationery as a committee member, which ...
