161. The crisis (2011) [Lobster #62 (Winter 2011 ) (free)] [Free Article]
... The crisis Robin Ramsay The political problem Sitting in the pub, a friend of mine said he couldn't understand what was going on in the Labour Party at the moment. I said something to the effect that they had a problem: almost everything they believed about economic policy for the past 25 years was wrong; and imagine how difficult this makes things for the current leadership. They cannot say, 'We're terribly sorry: we've been wrong for the last 25 years. We plumped for the City and ignored the manufacturing base. ' Politicians don't do this. Political parties not seeking election – e.g . the Communist Party of Great Britain – can say such things ( ...

... as this country was committed to being a military nuclear power. 'Consultation' is not democracy; public inquiries are not Socratic dialogues; for the most part they are the necessary pantomimes to rubber- stamp decisions taken in Whitehall. On the other hand, this was 1984: the Thatcher regime was still being challenged by the left; the Labour Party had not then embraced the 'Washington consensus'; the American banks had not completed their take-over of British economic thinking; the Cold War had been revived for the benefit of the American arms companies and opposition to American power and nuclear power was significant. The British secret state was more or less given its head by Mrs ...

163. The Cuntocracy [Lobster #62 (Winter 2011 ) (free)] [Free Article]
... George Osborne saying something? So, given our present system of rewarding the wealthy for robbing the poor, it is vital that its reality is reflected in a terminological exactitude open to every citizen: other terms lack cuntocracy's profound poetic grace.3 Most of them have come up with nothing particularly useful, but sociologists tell us that they have laboured away to arrive at an account of why our society is the way it is. Let us leave them to it, and, with one term, state who is in control, as much as it can be said anyone is in control, and how they pull off the con. The advantage of 'cuntocracy' is that it ...

... the British state in Northern Ireland. We headed for our respective libraries to try and make sense of this material and discovered that, with Wallace's narratives as guides, a large chunk of previously inexplicable British history became intelligible. Wallace's revelations illuminated the hysteria on the British right in the 1970s about the threat from the left and the belief of Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson that there was a disinformation campaign against him and his government. He was right: the hysteria and the campaign were largely the work of serving or former intelligence officers. We had been handed a really big story. But in the middle of this research Steve was offered the chance to co-author a book ...

165. It's all Jacques to me [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... all Jacques to me I sent the following by e-mail to a number of people: 'Thus Martin Jacques in the New Statesman: 'For the next 30 years, neoliberalism – the belief in the market rather then the state, the individual rather than the social – exercised a hegemonic influence over British politics, with the creation of New Labour signalling an abject surrender to the new orthodoxy. ' (1 ) As if he had nothing to do with it! ' Two of the recipients, Tim Pendry and William Clark, responded and then conducted an exchange. What follows is a section of that exchange with one minor excision. William Clark Where's all that Schumpeter's 'business cycle's ...

The talks in this book (1 ) kind of parallel some of the things that I have been writing about elsewhere. I began publishing Lobster in 1983; and I also joined the Labour Party that year, partly, I con-fess, because it seemed a likely source of stories for a local lefty magazine I was involved in. In the mid 1980s I was one of the few people in the Labour Party who were trying to educate themselves about the role played by the intelligence and security services in our democracy ...

167. Chasing Alpha [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... of it was nothing more than coincidence, much as London happily enjoys the trading benefits of straddling international time zones. During those years, Augar says, 'market forces were exceptionally favourable'. But there was also a history that 'endowed the City with a talent pool and an infrastructure that enabled it to seize the moment' and a New Labour government that 'through a mixture of good luck and good judgement, enabled the City to make the most of these opportunities'. Augar sees Brown's creation of the Financial Services Authority (FSA) under Howard Davies as key to this City expansion. The Financial Services and Markets Act of 2001, which prescribes the FSA's remit, 'reads more ...

168. Major Farran's Hat [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... of a justly praised biography of Adolf Eichmann, and of another less known volume, Justice Delayed, that everyone interested in post-1945 British history should have read. In many ways Justice Delayed is more shocking than his Eichmann biography because with that book we know what to expect. What Justice Delayed revealed was that the 1945-1951 Labour govern-ment did its best to keep Jewish Holocaust survivors out of Britain, but had no problem with allowing in Baltic veterans of the SS. While there is nothing as revelatory in Major Farran's Hat, nevertheless it does lay bare a desperate counter-insurgency strategy that had no prospect whatsoever of success and instead descended into pointless murder ...

... which we saw in previous booms. We saw the credit, we saw the house prices, but we did see a fairly stable pattern of earnings, prices and output. ' (emphasis added) This is the heart of it on this side of the Atlantic. Economic policy thinking between the years between 1979 and 1997, when New Labour took office, had been dominated by the fear of inflation getting out of control as it did between 1972 and 1976. How many times did Gordon Brown boast of stability (meaning price stability, of course) during his time as chancellor? Twenty five years after the events of the mid 1970s Brown still felt it necess-ary ...

... stranger to the Palace of Westminster. In 2000 he was appointed by Tony Blair to chair the new House of Lords Appointments Commission, a job that included vetting the propri-ety of nominees to the upper house and to the Honours List. While sitting in the Lords as a crossbencher, Stevenson has been a key figure in the New Labour network, as friend and supporter of Blair and Peter Mandelson, and with deep involvement in Demos and the British American Project among other groupings. The North-East redoubt of New Labour was where Stevenson cut his teeth as a young man, taking over the leadership of the Peterlee and Newton Aycliffe new towns from T. Dan Smith ...
