181. Historical Notes [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 53) Summer 2007 Last| Contents| Next Issue 53 Historical Notes Scott Newton What was Henry Brandon? One of the most interesting secondary sources covering the struggles of the British Labour government under Harold Wilson to prevent the devaluation of sterling between 1964-66 is Henry Brandon's In the Red, published by Andre Deutsch in 1966. It is a remarkably well-informed text and its reliability is underlined by the official record: most of the key points made by Brandon are supported by recently released papers in the National Archives (formerly the Public Record Office). Highlights are the Wilson-LBJ relationship (uneasy), an account of Chancellor Jim Callaghan's encounter with the US ...

... steps on the way; and studies of how it went wrong. It isn't difficult: if you understood their previous books, Elliott's writing in the Guardian or Atkinson's on his site, you will understand this. Here are two quotations. The first is from Elliott and Atkinson (p. 282) quoting the late Peter Shore, sometime Labour cabinet minister and one of the few Labour MPs to understand political economy. 'Peter Shore asked how a country was to regain competitiveness once it had [joined the single currency and] surrendered the option of adjusting its exchange rate, interest rate and monetary policy. The answer, to Shore, was only too clear. The alternatives, ...

... , he served for longer than, say, Clement Attlee, David Lloyd George or Edward Heath, longer than James Callaghan and Neville Chamberlain put together and just a few months shy of Harold Macmillan, yet he made less impression than any of those figures even at the time. A fair point, although his elevation to the premiership certainly had Labour rattled, rightly as it turned out on election night two years later. 'The Conservatives have found their Attlee,' said Lord (Douglas) Jay at the time in my hearing, a statement given some weight by his having served as a Treasury Minister under Labour's first post-war premier. Major enjoyed not one but two periods of extraordinarily ...

... all intelligence and security services are concerned-- MI5 had two compelling reasons not to 'blow' the CP-KGB link. While they would get some temporary kudos for so doing, in the post-Hungary climate irrefutable exposure of the Soviet connection would have terminally damaged the CP, and in the medium to long term, this would only have benefitted the Labour Party. For the Red Scare-- at whose core was the link to Moscow-- has been a key feature in the political armoury of the anti-Labour alliance between the Tory Party and the state. Secondly, the end of the CP in Britain would have been bad news to MI5 in the Whitehall budget struggle. Nowadays they've ...

185. 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 ...

... , as good as fronts for MI5. Colin Wallace's claim that some of them are financed by the state through the 'secret vote' should not be a surprise. That it was, to us at any rate, is a good indication of how naive we still are. The clutch of publications by these organisations in 1974 directed against the Labour Party (and to a lesser extent against the Liberals) simply carried MI5's views at that period. (173) So too, did Pincher. Best, most explicit of all, is his Inside Story. Inside Story should be read inside out, as an account of MI5's beliefs about, and operations against, the Labour Party ...

... . They created 'a Private Sector Operational Intelligence agency' and named it 6I- the Sixth International(138)- and found funding in the US Heritage Foundation. Crozier began publishing newsletters, Transnational Security, and British Briefing, his own version of the IRD briefings on British subversion which had been curtailed in 1974 upon the election of the Labour government. British Briefing was financed by the Industrial Trust, edited by Charles Elwell, 'soon after retiring from MI5', and published by IRIS.(139) What had begun a quarter of a century before as an anti-communist caucus among the AUEW's senior officers, had ended up fronting for Britain's leading anti-socialist psychological warfare expert.

Loan-sharking or extortion would describe them.(1) In New Zealand, a bunch of true believers imposed this catastrophic nonsense on their own country. This was allowed to happen because the politicians in the Labour government, which let this process begin, didn't know enough about economics (as was true in the UK at the same time); because the opposition to these plans was divided (as was true in the UK); because the New Zealand Left was preoccupied with feminism and the nuclear-free issue (as was true in the UK ...

... action, the greater the risks run. Away from the shooting, the hazards are different, though only a little less potent, and Greg Palast experienced quite a few of them when he brought his brand of clever, witty and vigorous exposure to bear on the Blair government in 1998. For detailing the corruption at the heart of New Labour in his Lobbygate reports in The Observer (see Lobsters 36 and 38 ), Palast was branded a liar on the front page of the then Blair-backing Daily Mirror. He was then set up to appear as a sex pest at Labour Party conference. This is not treatment the pliant press lobby around No. 10 are ever likely to ...
