... 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. ...

... Clinton's use of focus groups underlined the perception that he wasn't so much a conviction politician, but just liked to be liked. He used his charisma to retain power without a clear purpose, and his triangulation and Third Way politics underscored his policy vacuum. It seemed natural then that, wishing to emulate Clinton's election success in 1992, New Labour would ramp up the use of heavily US-influenced market research techniques prior to the 1997 UK election. This was 'the modernisers' way of doing politics and is most closely associated in the UK with Peter Mandelson and the late Philip Gould.

... services. Many of these programmes featured William Joyce ( 'Lord Haw Haw'), formerly a significant supporter of Sir Oswald Mosley. Joyce's talks, like Luxembourg's broadcasts in the 1930s, were extremely popular with audiences across the UK, much to the annoyance of the Churchill government.3 Plugge lost his seat in Parliament in the 1945 Labour landslide but retained his commercial interests. For some years in the 1940s the Attlee government and the Foreign Office made serious attempts, without success, to acquire broadcasting rights on Radio Luxembourg. This would have involved ending Luxembourg's transmissions to the UK (thus preserving the BBC monopoly) and switching its coverage 2 For details of the range of ...

The other two members were Michael Beloff QC and James Goudie QC. Beloff and Goudie were not only closely connected with the Blairs but also the Labour Party. These relationships were of prime importance because my appeal concerned data which, if it existed, could only have related to the Blairs' attempt to have me prosecuted and the aftermath of that failed attempt. Mr Beloff was joint head of Cherie Blair's old chambers at 4/5 Gray's Inn, Gray's Inn Sq. where Mrs ...

... the media with Lobster 11 . (April 1986) Embargoed until 3pm, April 30th Something very strange happened in British politics almost a decade ago. A Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, and the journalist with the closest links to the British intelligence services, Chapman Pincher, both said that elements of MI5 had been trying to bring down the Labour Government during 1974-76 - and nothing happened. There was no serious investigation by British journalists, the Labour Party or the Labour Government.

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 ...

On the recommendation of a colleague who was active in the Labour Committee for Transatlantic Understanding, he had been proposed for a trip to Washington under a US government visitors' programme.

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, ...

Of Harold Wilson's second term he writes: 'There was, too, a trace of paranoia, not this time about Labour rivals but about something far more sinister. It's impossible for outsiders - and, indeed, for most insiders - to reach an informed judgement about the alleged Secret Service plot against Wilson.
