171. The view from the bridge [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... Embassy's International Visitor Program and the Lab-our Party in the 1980s'(1 ) shows how the US cultivated the leaders of NuLab. 'This article looks at the influence of US public diplomacy in the UK, in particular the use of the International Visitor Program as a channel for encouraging dialogue and the introduction of new ideas into the Labour Party during the 1980s. ' And Smith lists all those who took the freebies on offer (for the most part they are the usual suspects). He notes: 'A meeting of the State Depart-ment's Interagency Working Group on Public Diplomacy in December 1982 discussed "pro-grams for gaining greater under-standing among the 'Successor ...

... line: The 1984 miners' strike and the death of industrial Britain Francis Beckett and David Hencke London: Constable, 2009, h/b , £18.99 This is quite interesting and impressive; but with a strange spin. There is a lot of (to me) new detail on the impact of the event on the Labour Party and trade unions, on money given to the NUM from other unions and on attempts to resolve the conflict. The authors show us the senior levels of the trade union movement, the National Coal Board and some politicians trying to find a way out of a fight which they saw as an expensive, unnecessary grudge match which the ...

... Burg agrees with Rubinstein on one thing: the import-ance of assessing the significance of Israel. 'If you wish to under-stand the world, try to decipher Israel, ' he says, 'and if you wish to understand Israel, examine the world within which you live. ' But that apart, the views of the former Labour MP, whose father fled Germany in September 1939 and whose Hebron mother survived the Arab massacre 10 years earlier, could scarcely be more diff-erent. Burg is a very senior figure in the Israeli and wider Jewish world and so his call for Jews to shed the weight of Holocaust victimhood and its consequent 'catastrophic Zionism' is a ...

175. The meaning of the 2009 Budget [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... though there were times in the 1950s and 1960s when this went into the red, it was very rare for a balance of payments deficit to be worth more than – 1 per cent of the GDP. The special circum-stances of the oil crisis in 1973 led to a – 4 per cent figure in 1974, but the 'old Labour' Wilson and Callaghan governments trans-formed this into a 0.5 per cent surplus by 1978. Thereafter the position became far more volatile, and by the end of the 1980s the current account deficit was approaching – 5 per cent of the GDP. The partial recovery of the manufacturing sector in the 1990s was accompanied by a ...

176. Terrorism and Intelligence in Australia [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... to the Americans. They had no interest in the Nazis being resettled in Australia after WW2, and were barely interested in Croatian terrorists in Australia even when they began launching raids on Yugoslavia. ASIO was almost a parody of the right-wing security/intelli-gence outfit in bed with the right. The author's account also shows a Labour Party dimly aware of all this, making the occasional half-hearted stab at reining in ASIO, which the agency and its conservative allies easily outflanked or overturned. Cain's account has the familiar virtues and the faults of academic writing on these subjects. On the plus side it is solid and reliable. On the negative side, because ...

177. Why are we with Uncle Sam? [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... 1965-66 Harold Wilson refused to send British troops to Vietnam, despite heavy pressure from President Johnson and threats to halt US support for sterling. Wilson refused for two reasons that I am aware of. The most pressing was that had he sent UK troops to Vietnam there would have been massive problems with the left-wing of the Labour Party in and outside parliament. And in those days this mattered. The second reason was suggested by the former SIS officer Anthony Cavendish, who told me twenty years ago that Maurice Oldfield, when deputy chief of SIS, had warned Wilson not get embroiled in Vietnam. Oldfield had served as an SIS regional head in the Far East ...

... as soon as possible. It would have been interesting to have heard about how the values of that stratum of society at that time affected Livingstone and subsequently contributed to his views – but this is not attempted by Hosken. This is a great shame as there are signs from other sources that Ken himself was politically active prior to joining the Labour Party. It was recently reported that Sir Christopher Gent, currently Chairman of GlaxoSmithKline, said that Livingstone had been an Executive Member of the Young Conservatives, in south London, in the 1960s.(5 ) Presumably this was pre-1966, the year that Livingstone took a lengthy trip around Africa. In 1984 John Carvel casually ...

... defence at No 10 when Tony Blair became Prime Minister. Liddell, like his wife's father, gravitated to a Brussels job when Mandelson became an EU commissioner. Lord Thomson, who shared his son-in-law's strong interest in defence and Europe, became a European commissioner in 1972, one of the many Atlanticist Gaitskellites to find the Labour Party an increasingly inhospitable home as the Vietnam War, the Chile coup, and other US foreign policies failed to chime with younger party members as they had with Thomson's older post-war and early Cold War generation. Lord Thomson finished his life as a Liberal Democrat and, apart from several business interests, had a spell chairing the ...

The plot was provoked by collapse of confidence in Wilson in the media (led by King's Daily Mirror), finance, industry and the wider public. King's idea was that the Queen's cousin, Lord Mountbatten, would take over at the head of an Emergency Government, backed up by the Monarchy and the ...
