... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 11) April 1986 Last| Contents| Next Issue 11 Wilson, MI5 and the Rise of Thatcher Covert Operations in British Politics 1974-1978 Conclusions Of the three major aims of the network described by Wallace- removing the Labour Party, neutralising the Liberals as potential allies of the Labour Party, and getting a right-wing leader of the Tory Party in place of the despised Edward Heath- only the third was completely achieved. Jeremy Thorpe was destroyed but Hain survived his fit-up for robbery and for all the rumour-mongering about Clement Freud and Cyril Smith, the Liberals didn't crumble.

... 'punished' for lending too much by being 'forced' to raise interest rates. It was a return to the world before the Great Depression and Keynes. By the late 1970s Milton Friedman's views on the money supply – monetarism – and its centrality in government economic policy had become adopted by the Thatcher faction of the Conservative Party, apparently by Labour Prime Minister Callaghan2 4 and by sections of the higher media commentariat. In 1980 Friedman presented a series of hour long films with the umbrella title 'Free to Chose' and I remember BBC2 broadcasting one of the episodes.2 5 A panel of British politicians – of whom I remember only Denis Healey – were in the studio to discuss the film ...

113. Historical Notes: Wilson and sterling in 1964 [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 49) Summer 2005 Last| Contents| Next Issue 49 Historical Notes: Wilson and sterling in 1964 Scott Newton When Labour narrowly won the October 1964 election they were greeted by dismal balance of payments figures. An external deficit in the region of £800 million was forecast, twice what had been expected (although the actual figure has since been revised down to £372 million). The government attempted to manage the crisis by a package of measures centred in the short term on a 15 per cent tariff on manufactured goods and fiscal measures to help exporters; in the longer term it aimed for growth in exports via agreement with both sides ...

(c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 40) Winter 2000/1 Last| Contents| Next Issue 40 The Rebel Who Lost His Cause: the tragedy of John Beckett MP Francis Beckett London House, 1999, £20 John Newsinger John Beckett has always been an enigma: the fiery left wing Labour MP who became one of Mosley's fascists, an unrepentant anti-Semite and war-time internee. How to explain this trajectory? Francis Beckett's new biography is of particular interest because it is an attempt by the man's son, a left wing journalist (New Statesman education correspondent) and historian, to understand what his father became in the course of the 1930s. Francis Beckett's picture of the Labour ...

The longer version is at< http://www.pertier.com/demos.html> Ostensibly a left-leaning 'think tank', Demos' initial Advisory Board gathered mostly those who wished to extend 'Thatcherism' into the 'New Labour' project. The Advisory Board Martin Jacques His time in the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) has been portrayed as one of deception, secret funding, rigged ballots, suspected secret service penetration and lunatic purges.(1) His development of 'Euro-communism' and Marxism Today (MT) further undermined the basis of Marxism in ...

... prominent Tories and the connections and contacts this provided. What is interesting is Mosley's decision, once in the House, to position himself on the left. He played an important part in the opposition to the Lloyd George Coalition's Irish policy, in particular the so-called 'reprisals' policy with its murder squads and house-burnings. And then he joined the Labour Party. The eagerness with which the Labour Party, including the party at constituency level, welcomed this upper class convert and his wife with their country estate, conspicuous wealth and domestic servants still comes as something of a surprise. Not just Mosley, but his wife, Cynthia, the daughter of Lord Curzon, was also immensely popular ...

... The Soviet unions were adjuncts of the Soviet state; and besides attempting to dominate the WFTU, the Soviets opposed the Marshall Plan, which most of the trade union leaders in Western Europe and the United States supported. With considerable assistance from various American government agencies, including financial help, backed up by numbers of US trade unionists working as labour attachés in American embassies in Europe, the British TUC, the French FO, the Swedish LO, the American CIO (but not the AFL), and a number of other Western trade union organizations, broke away from the WFTU and, in December 1949, formed the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU). The ...

... The Black Door Spies, Secret Intelligence and British Prime Ministers Richard Aldrich and Rory Cormac London: William Collins, £30 T his new book by two respected academics has a lot to tell us about how Britain is run. We are told, for example, that at a CBI dinner in December 1971, the Labour Party leader, Harold Wilson, boasted to the assembled businessmen of how, when in office, he had MI5 keep left-wing leaders of the trade union movement under surveillance, 'tapped or bugged'. Indeed, during the 1966 Seamen's Strike Wilson had received MI5 briefings on the dispute twice a day. According to Martin Furnival Jones, MI5's Director, no ...

... exception of a few minor hiccups, the Conservative Party was an honourable conduit through which aristocrats and, more recently, respectable representatives of the middle class could uphold the eternal, blessed, values of England. Much Conservative history has been written by Conservatives, and a myth has been perpetuated. As Davies points out in his introduction, the Labour Party and its politicians have been the subject of much greater and more critical exposure- as one would expect of anything new. As a consequence, it has appeared as if Labour was more often the party beset by turmoil and internecine warfare. Three major Conservative themes emerge from this book: the state, survival, and a schizophrenic ...

Speaking for Myself Cherie Blair London: Little, Brown, 2008, h/b, £18.99 Reviewed by John Newsinger The relentless harrying of Neil Kinnock by the Murdoch press at the time of the 1992 general election outraged Labour Party people, among them Cherie Blair. This was the general election when The Sun proudly boasted that it was its continual ridicule and abuse of the Labour leader that had won the election for the Tories. Indeed, Cherie's anger was such that the Murdoch papers were banned from the Blair household. Today, her autobiography has been serialised ...
