191. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... a story. The fact that the undertaking has been given is confidential and can't be published. ' Marr is a long-time political journalist and was briefly editor of The Independent. His wife, Jackie Ashley, a Guardian columnist, was previously a political journalist for the New Statesman and ITN News. Ashley, the daughter of former Labour MP Jack (now Lord) Ashley, grew up close to the powerful in the party and the careers of both have prospered mightily under New Labour. When Peter Oborne wrote of the political class (Lobsters passim) being remote from the rest of us he couldn't have even guessed of the legal lengths this power couple would go to ...

192. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... Summer 2008 Last | Contents | Next Issue 55 The Cecil King coup plot as precursor to Gordon Brown's 'government of all the talents'Roger Cottrell Students of parapolitics are divided as to the seriousness of the Cecil King coup plot of 1968 to establish what he called a 'businessman's government', a permanent coalition government dominated by the right of the Labour Party but with unelected businessmen and security 'experts' also in its ranks. Such a government was also the stated intention of several coup plots in Italy, including the notorious Valerio Borghese plot of 1970, and King shared with Borghese significant links to the CIA.(1 ) In the British version, several of King's co-conspirators ...

193. Fifth Column: The decadence of our political system [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... is a wonderful thing. After the invasion of Poland, Suez, the intervention of the IMF in the 1970s, the arrival of Maggie Thatcher, the Falklands War, the Iraq War, there are always those who see an inevitability that may never have been there in the first place. So it is with the current problems of New Labour, the shift of economic power to the East, the global credit crisis and a food crisis that might turn tin-pot tribal insurgencies into the real thing – urban revolts that can turn states into threats to their neighbours. And yet, bluntly, there have been many people who cannot be accused of hindsight and who have predicted ...

... wagons now? They're on the roads while the vast rail infrastructure remains largely empty.(2 ) The Railway Age was born in Britain and exported all around the world and one of its implicit messages was that railways should be run as a single unitary authority; but John Major knew better (with his rushed through privatisation) and New Labour, despite pre-election undertakings to re-nationalise the industry, just went belly-up on the proposal. Remember Tony Blair in opposition saying he wanted to see 'a publicly accountable, publicly owned railway'? Christian Wolmar is a canny and perceptive writer on the politics and economy of the railways and it's an area he has ...

... he has any). Friends in high places The text of a very interesting complaint sent in December 2007 to Peter Ramsden, Secretary to the Committee on Standards in Public Life about the influence of the Israeli lobby in the UK, is on-line.(5 ) Most usefully, it includes details of the Conservative as well as Labour Friends of Israel. The authors comment: 'In the meantime your Committee is aware how the lobby group, Friends of Israel, has embedded itself in the British political establishment and at the very heart of government. Its stated purpose is to promote Israel's interests in our Parliament and sway British policy. MPs are surely not at liberty to ...

... run the world. ' (p . 81) About half the book is on Britain. There is a chapter on 'The Hidden History of Corporate Propaganda', on the Economic League and its forebears, such as the British Commonwealth Union. (But this section omits the fact that these groups were initially formed not just to oppose organised labour and the left but also to fight for the interests of domestic manufacturing against the interests of the City. The struggle with globalisation began a long time ago.) We get two excellent chapters on the demise of the left and the rise of the right in the Labour Party, both similar in approach though not in detail, to ...

... his own paper's readers an accurate picture of a serious and well-informed book on journalism and its consequences for democracy. At no time in Preston's review does he declare an interest – his close friendship over 30 years with his protégé Alton – or the way that this Observer editor used his position and his closeness to key people in New Labour to keep his readers in the dark over matters of peace and war and much else under the Blair premiership. Preston practises deception by omission as well as by lying. Network of influence It will take a longer piece than this to trace the network of influence over liberal opinion developed by The Guardian and The Observer in the postwar world ...

... adequate guarantees to this effect did not appear, Goldsmith duly announced that the Referendum Party would contest any seat in the forthcoming UK general election where they felt that either the sitting MP or the prospective candidates were insufficiently robust on this issue. The Goldsmith effect By 1995 it seemed clear to many observers of UK politics that Tony Blair and the Labour Party, now packaged as the 'New Labour project', were likely to do very well at the forthcoming general election. For a range of reasons, notably the recession of 1991/2 , and the forced withdrawal of sterling from the Exchange Rate Mechanism in 1992, a fresh Conservative government with a workable majority did not seem likely ...

... turns out that the version put together from the unofficial fragments by people like Paul Lashmar was basically correct. What isn't here is anything that hints at how the British secret state developed in the fifties and sixties, how IRD came to circulate (and the rest of Whitehall let it circulate) material about the 'Soviet threat' within the British labour movement; and how this nonsense came to be inserted into the conflict in Northern Ireland ( 'Britain's Cuba' as IRD christened it ). For that – what little hasn't been weeded – we will have to wait for the equivalent account of the next ten or fifteen years. Last | Contents | Next ...
