221. 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 ...

222. The Westminster Whistleblowers, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]

(c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 53) Summer 2007 Last | Contents | Next Issue 12 The Westminster Whistleblowers: Shirley Porter, homes for votes and twenty years of scandal in Britain's rottenest borough Paul Dimoldenberg London: Politicos, 2006, £12.99, p/b The author was a Labour councillor in Westminster during Porter's 'reign of terror' and was instrumental in eventually bringing her down. With an insider's view he has written an immensely detailed account of this extraordinary episode of what Tony Frewin called 'demographic cleansing' – the attempt to rid Westminster of its Labour voters by squeezing them out of the borough. Since the outline of ...

... of the 'gentleman' is an obsolete relic of a specific epoch in British history – it has left, to be sure, a distorted after-effect (the word 'gentlemen' still appears on toilets) – but as an adjective for any sort of 'capitalism' it is an oxymoron (just like the obverse notion of an 'aristocracy of labour', which at least was deliberately ironic). The cult of the 'gentleman' in the 19th century was part of a cultural strategy for assimilating manufacturers (presumably with provincial accents) into metropolitan manners. God only knows what 'gentlemanly capitalism' is supposed to mean, except to suggest that capitalists never get their hands dirty? This ...

224. The 1975 Referendum on Europe, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... EU academics. Sad to say, then, that these two volumes are really not very interesting. Volume 1, the memories of people involved in the 1975 referendum, contains almost nothing that we didn't know already. The familiar story is re-told: the 'anti' campaign had little money and, because they were composed of the Labour left and Tory right, had difficulty working together; they didn't produce a professional-looking campaign and were portrayed by the media as a group of oddballs. Meanwhile the 'pros', containing all the centrists who had been promoted by the media as the 'sensible' people, had tons of money and some covert help from the British ...

225. MI5 and the threat from the left in the 1970s [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... quasi-fascist organisations, the paper predicts an increase of "enemy propaganda" by the "subversive" left targeting universities, the civil service, and the armed forces. This would be followed by incidents of sabotage "complicated by a revival of the IRA." ' According to Burns, the paper presented a scenario 'in which a Labour government, acceding to trade union and other militant demands, radicalised its policies against the private sector and the UK's NATO commitments. ' Burns commented that, The paper] appears to give some credibility to claims made by Mr Wilson, following his resignation, that MI5 contained a group of right-wing officers who were incapable of distinguishing ...

226. Steady Eddie blows the gaff [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... years with one huge difference: before Mrs Thatcher the government would have used public, state spending to create demand in the domestic economy; the MPC have used credit card debt and borrowing against the value of houses in a striking innovation in the annals of `Keynesian' demand management. In 1976 Prime Minister James Callaghan became notorious on the Labour left for his speech to the Labour Party conference in which he stated that it was no longer possible to spend your way out of a recession. Lord George is boasting/admitting that the MPC did precisely that. But at what cost? RR Last | Contents | Next ...

227. The view from the bridge [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... bridge Charlie Bubbles One of Lobster's contributors had dinner a few years ago with Charlie Falconer, the current Lord Chancellor, and reported that he was a fount of information on the B-sides of pop singles of the 1960s. Well, pop-pickers, our civil liberties are safe in his hands then. Or not. As New Labour prepares to cut back on the already pretty limited freedom of information legislation in this country, Falconer came out with a classic in the New Labour's Dodgy Excuses collection. 'The Government approaches openness on the basis of improving how government operates, for the benefit of the public. Many sections of the press do not approach it in that way ...

... other surveys, this is one of the best sources for what Milner was up to throughout his life. Thomas Pakenham The Boer War, (New York, Random House, 1979). This book disclosed for the first time conclusive evidence of Milner s collusion with the gold mining corporations during the Boer War to ensure adequate supplies of native labour for the mines. This collusion had long been suspected, but had been systematically denied by the entire academic establishment that controlled British Imperial historiography. The basic literature on Milner s Kindergarten is as follows: John Kendle, The Round Table Movement and Imperial Union, (Toronto University, 1975) W. Nimocks, Milner s young men ...

... Saddam Hussein regime had been toppled and a US-dominated government installed. One of the strengths of this book is the way it doesn't dodge the contradictory situations the Iranian working class finds itself in, not least when it comes to religion and the threat of a US-led invasion. Despite Islam being the ideological underpinning of the repressive labour (and other laws), most Iranians remain Muslims and would want any political changes to respect that. This accounts for the comparative lack of success of more secular (Western?) revolutionary groups who target religion per se along with other class enemies. Equally, whilst detesting their current regime, they would oppose any attempts to impose ...

230. Inside Gordon's head [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... '.Does he really believe this? The answer to that must be, 'Yes, he does. ' It is possible that in the early 1990s, when he was made Shadow Chancellor by the late John Smith, he did not believe it but thought he had to go along with the so-called 'Washington consensus' to get Labour into office; but for at least a decade he appears to me to have been a true believer. And you can see the appeal of this to someone in Brown's position: if the 'Washington consensus' is the best of all possible worlds, it means that he doesn't have to oppose America, the City and the multinationals. ...
