21. The miners and the secret state (Winter 2009/2010) [Lobster #58 (Winter 2009/2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... 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 ...

22. 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, ...

The last meeting of the Pinay Circle was on the weekend of 1st December 1979 in the Madison Hotel in Washington. Among the participants were the German minister Narjes (now influential in the EEC), ex Minister of Air Julian Amery, from Great Britain, ex CIA Director William Colby, Federal Reserve Bank manager Volkers, President of the Heritage Trust Foundation, Feulner, Italian Finance Minister Pandolfi, and the South African General Frazer. Acting as a kind of co-ordinator from the original French side is the Parisian lawyer Maitre Jean ...

26. Britain's Secret Propaganda War (Book review) [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... . Thomson is the father-in-law of Roger Liddle, Blair's adviser on Europe, and the chair of one of the companies run by the man who is in charge of the 'blind trust' running Liddle's business interests...(1) and IRD played a role- though how big a role we don't know yet- in the 1973 EEC Referendum campaign, part of which is described here.... But for me the potentially most important section is the short chapter on IRD's domestic political operations. In his A War of Words (reviewed in Lobster 36) the late Christopher Mayhew revealed the existence of a meeting in 1956 between IRD, MI5 and the Cabinet Secretary ...

... an authoritarian and protectionist.' (p. 183) Who was Margaret Thatcher? To me the most interesting section is his account of being a junior minister in the Treasury during the Heath years. His account confirms the analysis I offer of this period in chapter 1 of The Rise of New Labour. Obsessed with British entry into the EEC, Heath embarked upon his 'dash for growth', and turned the bankers loose. Having worked in the City, Nott saw immediately how disastrous the so-called Competition and Credit Control changes of 1972 were when allied to Heath's determination to retain 'cheap money'; and, unusually honest for a politician, he notes: 'So bad was the ...

... nag won't run. For example, he merely examines Mrs Thatcher's lies, not Conservative lies of the period. (Just think of all the lies told about Labour-controlled local government in the 1980s!) Nor does he mention Northern Ireland. Starting his historical sketch in 1979 he can omit the biggest post-war domestic lie, Heath's claim that the EEC was merely a free trade area, and the events of the 1973-77 period (whose effects were still felt in the 1980s) when the Tory right, briefed by a section of the British spooks, believed that the Labour Party and the unions were a Communist conspiracy and were thus 'a legitimate target'. Oborne's idea of 'political' ...

... ' doesn't yet sound entirely convincing. So this strange enterprise will continue as long as the material keeps appearing (and I sell enough copies to produce it). And, happily, the material shows no signs of drying-up and the sales remain constant. Still unmentionable Michael Cockrell's entertaining look back at the 1975 referendum on membership of the then EEC, 'How We Fell for Europe' (BBC2, 4 June 2005) got most of it right but flunked the role of the secret state in it. Of IRD's role in the 'pro' campaign there was no mention; and he was told about it. You leak, we brief Michael Smith, of The Times, who ...

... 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 ...
