91. Rosetta Stone and the code of national security (Summer 2010) [Lobster #59 (Summer 2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... became international, based on the 'supply-side' strategy. One of the consequences of US entry into World War I was the expansion of the federal government's domestic intelligence (policing) apparatus. While US Army Intelligence retained much of its authority to spy on political dissidents, the increasing industrialisation catalysed by the war mobilisation created a greater threat from organised labour. Private industry had been able to suppress unionisation with its own private police and detective agencies, like Pinkerton. The rapid expansion caused by the war effort made it expeditious for the federal government to absorb the cost and responsibility for political policing. The result was the creation of the FBI. The infamous J. Edgar Hoover exploited the ...

Most of the media support the coalition, and so while accepting he had to go after the revelation of the £40,000 rent payment from the taxpayer, most still think he can a make a ministerial return following the New Labour precedents of Peter Mandelson, David Blunkett, Beverley Hughes and Peter Hain. Some journalists went further in their support for Laws. While his partner Matthew Parris was touring the studios urging Laws to stay on, Guardian columnist Julian Glover wrote twice in two days in support of the Yeovil MP. Before his departure Glover wrote: 'The story ...

... for not preventing the crisis. True, our FSA could have done more to see the bubble expanding, but the whole point about regulation under successive chancellors since the Big Bang in 1986 was that the City asked for lighter and lighter supervision and boy, did it get it. It was part of the Faustian pact that got New Labour into power in the first place. (" What you in the City have done for financial services," enthused Gordon Brown in 2002, "we as a government intend to do for the economy as a whole." He got that right.)' 2 City lobbying H ow this has been achieved, and how the ...

In his column in The Evening Standard Neather wrote of the mass migration into the UK of the current 27 Chris Patten, 'The End of the Party: The Rise and Fall of New Labour' in The Observer, Sunday 7 March 2010. 28 'When Gordon Brown at last became Prime Minister two years ago, his first important move was a visit to Washington D.C., where he declared to a joint Congress-Senate session that "no power on earth" would ever come between the USA and Britain. He made manifest a ...

... English language services. Many of these programmes featured William Joyce( 'Lord Haw Haw'), formerly a significant supporter of Sir Oswald Mosley. Joyce's talks, like Luxembourg's broadcasts in the 1930s, were extremely popular with audiences across the UK, much to the annoyance of the Churchill government.3 Plugge lost his seat in Parliament in the 1945 Labour landslide but retained his commercial interests. For some years in the 1940s the Attlee government and the Foreign Office made serious attempts, without success, to acquire broadcasting rights on Radio Luxembourg. This would have involved ending Luxembourg's transmissions to the UK (thus preserving the BBC monopoly) and switching its coverage 2 For details of the range of ...

... contaminated the CPGB and by extension potentially contaminated everyone else who had contact with Party members; which, given the loose nature of the British left outside party/union branch meetings, meant a great many people. Given the importance of the CPGB on the British left, in the trade unions and as a source of both policy for the Labour Party and problems for Labour governments, it would be difficult to overstate the political significance of this. One of the reasons the UK did not become a European-style social democracy was the role of the CPGB on the British left. As for the post 1964 sections over 350 pages on a first whizz through them I noticed the ...

The Times sections are italicised A KGB plot One conjecture connects Harold Wilson to the sudden death of Hugh Gaitskell, his predecessor as leader of the Labour Party. It claims that Gaitskell, a pro-American, had been assassinated by the KGB in order to install a communist sympathiser as probable future prime minister. Anatoly Golitsyn, a Soviet agent who had defected to the West, claimed that Wilson had been acting as a KGB informer after visiting Russia in the late 1940s as President of the ...

... by privileged young career politicians who 'know no life outside politics'. Had I been too harsh in my earlier judgements of the female member of the Gang of Four, I wondered? Who could possibly quibble with that reasonable-sounding voice when the Foreign Secretary appears barely old enough to vote? But then I read Climbing the Bookshelves by the former Labour Cabinet minister who helped launch the short-lived SDP in 1981. Sure enough the wise words I'd heard on the BBC were there. But so was her description of how as a 21-year-old Oxford student the then Shirley Catlin was funded by the US government to take the Young Atlantic Leaders trip around America. Then, while subsequently enjoying a Fulbright ...

... include the American experience but it is the British Page 149 Winter 2009/10 Lobster 58 events which interest me and have been less well reported. This takes us to the core of the NuLab story, for it shows that the Blair-Brown administrations really did believe that private is always better than public. (How they must have hated the Labour Party!) Yet it still astounds me to read an account of a (nominally) Labour government casually handing over chunks of the British defence structure to American and British business; just giving away part of the power of the state which NuLab were supposed to be trying to articulate in the interests of the British people (never mind ...
