161. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... The Brittle Society Alarmists, like Naomi Wolf, have been exaggerating the degree to which the US, and by implication the UK, have been slipping towards a police state. The evidence for true tyranny in either country is weak. However, since it came to power in 1997, it might be reasonably argued(1 ) that New Labour has brought the United Kingdom one third of the way towards a 'tyranny' if we look closely at what the Blair Government has actually done since 2001 and then measure it against Wolf's ten steps to dictatorship.(2 ) In the strange amalgam of New Labour and state that emerged in 1997, one fundamental political purpose has been to ...

... figures. There were General Sir Walter Walker's Civil Assistance, Colonel David Stirling's GB75, and George Young's Unison. (1 ) These groups formed in order to frustrate the impact of strike action in the essential services, and were linked to rumours that elements in the military and intelligence establishment were contemplating some kind of coup to overthrow the minority Labour government which had taken up office in March 1974. This view was expressed at the time by Tony Benn (2 ) and supported by the later publications of Peter Wright, Paul Foot and Robin Ramsay and Stephen Dorril.(3 ) Now the consensus interpretation is that the 'armies' were products of a paranoia about 'reds under the ...

163. Churchill and The Focus [Lobster #25 (Jun 1993)]
... he had 'no party base or backing, no platform, no press' but this simply was not the case. Not only did Parliament and The Focus give him a platform, in Parliament he could eventually count on the support of some forty Conservative MPs, the Liberals under Archibald Sinclair, and, after Munich, almost all of the Labour Party. Origins of The Focus The Focus was partly a dining club and partly a campaign co-ordinating committee. If not strictly secret, it was private and avoided publicity. For example, after attending his second Focus lunch on 6 April 1938, the National Labour politician Harold Nicolson wrote in his diary: 'This is a mysterious ...

164. The view from the bridge [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... the publisher. The key section is this, from an unnamed MI5 officer: 'Blair was recruited [by MI5] early on in his career, around the time he stood in the Beaconsfield by-election in 1982. He was just the sort of agent MI5 wanted at the time, a man who appeared to be committed to the Labour Party but who in fact was to use Thatcher's phrase "one of us" .. .. .MI5 terminated Blair in the late 1980s when it was downgrading its study of subversion and Blair was rising to the higher ranks of the Labour Party. ' The spook-wise We've got another MP who takes a serious interest in ...

165. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... but does not understand, in his highly readable book is a process whereby a capitalism too decadent to produce ideas of its own looks to a decaying Stalinist Broad Left to sustain its hegemony. This is actually more evident in Britain than the US and, indeed, much of Marshall's book concerns itself with the British situation. Here, New Labour has completely replaced the Tories as the main party of British capitalism by hijacking the historical Labour Party in violation of its own constitution. But while Tony Blair had almost zero experience of labour movement politics and was certainly no intellectual, those who theorised and rendered the process possible – in terms of a Gramscian war of position or construction of ...

166. Michael Ledeen again [Lobster #49 (Summer 2005)]
... no evidence I am aware of linking Ledeen to the similar evaluation of documents in Baghdad following the Iraq invasion 19 years later. It is interesting to note, though, that it was a Conrad Black paper for which Ledeen wrote, The Daily Telegraph, which lost the libel action in which they claimed the Baghdad 'documents' fingered the then Labour MP George Galloway. During the Reagan presidency Ledeen was deeply involved in the Iran-Contra scandal, along with another old neo-con associate, John Negroponte (a key administration figure in the Iraq war and now about to head George Bush's new US intelligence organisation). Ledeen was the key link with Manucher Ghorbanifar and Adnan Khashoggi ...

... and Jeffrey St Clair have for years edited the US-based political newsletter CounterPunch. So from which of the above, do you reckon, do we get this? 'I gradually became aware that the conventional narrative structure which is used to give sense and meaning to British politics was extremely misleading. Though the public is told that Tory and Labour are in opposition, that is not really the case. They are led to believe that the Liberal Democrats are an insurgent third party, but that is not the case. It has come to seem to me that their strongest loyalties are to each other.

... Central Office of Information, and the widespread distribution of leaflets and 'fact sheets' to business, the media, politicians, trade unions, and the general public. The government campaign was augmented by several others. Foreign Office official Gladwyn Jebb was instrumental in forming the Common Market Campaign, with Roy Jenkins as deputy, which aimed to recruit Labour intellectuals and trade unionists to its cause. Other campaigns were launched by the Conservative and Liberal parties, Federal Union (assisted by a number of former civil servants), the United Europe Association (with support from several religious leaders), businesses (British and European bankers, insurers, and manufacturers for example), and by the ...

... was Vice President of the Liberal Party at this point, actually announced when Radio Atlanta started broadcasting in May 1964, that it was intended to be 'the last bastion of freedom if the country went Communist. ' This could only have been an allusion to the possibility that the general election that was due in late 1964 would result in a Labour government that Major Smedley and his colleagues regarded as seriously – even dangerously – left-wing. Sir Geoffrey Crowther went from Cambridge where he had been President of the Union in 1928, to Yale via a Commonwealth Fund Fellowship.

... 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 ...
