... origins, its structure, its world-view and working methods, and its 'achievements'. The ERT's origins In the early 1980s the erstwhile European Economic Community was unable to respond effectively to the economic 'stagflation' from which Western Europe had been suffering for almost a decade. At the same time there had been little movement towards further integration within the EEC. However, Pehr Gyllenhammar, Volvo's CEO, started campaigning for an overall scheme 'to spur growth, and build industry and infrastructure' in Western Europe. Working with Fiat's Umberto Agnelli, Philips Wisse Dekker and the EEC Industry Commissioner Etienne Davignon, Gyllenhammar drew togeth-er a group of leading European CEOs with the objective of 'relaunching Europe'. ...

22. Downing Street Diary: With Harold Wilson in No. 10 [Lobster #50 (Winter 2005/6)]
... Falkender'. It depends what you consider minor. Marcia Falkender had been Wilson's right-hand for nearly twenty years and was, by any measure, a most significant political figure at a time when the Wilson governments were having a difficult time on almost any front you care to mention: Northern Ireland, inflation, unions, rising unemployment, the EEC referendum not to mention the smear campaigns and various psy-ops running against them. As the closest person to Wilson, what she did mattered. If Donoughue has a single theme here it is that the Wilson governments of 1974-76, of which he was a part, were undermined by the presence of Falkender who took up Wilson's time and ...

23. The view from the bridge [Lobster #50 (Winter 2005/6)]
... ' 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 ...

... ( [3]) It could all have been very different. Many people have wondered why, having lost an election and 66 years of age, Callaghan stayed Leader of the Labour Party. But by 1979 Callaghan was triumphant. Brown was a comical, ridiculed drunk. Wilson was forgotten and discredited. Jenkins had left to become an EEC Commissioner. Barbara Castle, too, had gone to Europe, as Leader of the Labour Group of MEPs. The period 1979-1980 saw Callaghan basking in a kind of unchallenged Indian Summer. Had he gone quietly in May 1979 he would have been replaced by his deputy, Dennis Healey; and had Healey become leader many commentators believe 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' ...

26. Historical Notes [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... 48) Winter 2004 Last| Contents| Next Issue 48 Historical Notes Scott Newton A Franco-German Bomb? A study by the German historian Werner Abelhauser casts new light on Franco-German efforts to provide the youthful European Economic Community with military capability.(1) The essay is notable because it adds another dimension to our grasp of how and why the EEC was formed. Most modern work follows from the thesis developed by Alan Milward and is starting to accept that the EEC developed out of the post-war reconstruction programmes of the six nations (France, Germany, Italy and Benelux) which founded it. (2) Abelhauser does not argue with this but does suggest that other, strategic factors ...

... with the Americans. But how absolute would that power be was the Prime Minister's wish to say withdraw from NATO? We have seen this absolute Prime Ministerial power before. Edward Heath's wishes prevailed in 1972-3 when, without telling his party or his cabinet, he decided to try and reconstruct the British economy to make it fit for EEC entry. In Heath's day the major co-conspirator in the project was the Cabinet Secretary Sir William Armstrong. With Blair it was his chief media wallah, Alistair Campbell. Thus the world has changed. Casualties So, after two reports by noble Lords and thousands of critical column inches, the only person to be fired as a result of ...

... Union propaganda campaigns mounted to date: in 1962-63 to secure public support following Britain's first application to join the EU; in 1970-71 to prepare the public for accession; and in 1974-75 to ensure continued EU membership in the 1975 Referendum. For simplicity, the term European Union (EU), rather than Common Market, European Economic Community (EEC), or European Community (EC), will be used throughout this article to refer to the post-war project of European integration. In the beginning The post-war project of European integration began in 1951 when six states established the European Coal and Steel Community. It was followed by the creation of the EU in 1957. Britain, however ...

Symonds obviously mistook these hard-nosed executives for people with a social conscience...' The CIA and the 1975 Referendum on EEC membership Sir Richard Body's encounter with purported CIA personnel prior to the 1975 Referendum on British membership of the EEC has been referred to before in Lobster 33 and Lobster 34.

... 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 ...
