21. Destabilising the Wilson government 1974-76 [Lobster #11 (Apr 1986)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 11) April 1986 Last| Contents| Next Issue 11 Wilson, MI5 and the Rise of Thatcher Covert Operations in British Politics 1974-1978 Destabilising the Wilson government 1974-76 1975, the year that saw the formation of NAFF, was also the second year of an unprecedented smear campaign against the Labour Party, and, to a lesser extent, the Liberal Party. The major target of this campaign, and as far as we are aware the only senior politician who has been willing to talk about it, is Harold Wilson. Wilson spoke most extensively to the journalists Penrose and Courtier (Pencourt). Their book, The Pencourt File, appeared almost ...

22. Our leader [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... is neatly divided into chapters on either specific historical periods or significant individuals. The picture that emerges of Blair is striking in its variance from much of his public image but not necessarily to his disadvantage. He is a rather more mundane figure than the PR machine would have us believe. Early Blair The PM had no great connection with the Labour Party (his father was a Conservative barrister, widely tipped as likely to get a seat in Parliament before a disabling stroke) and has, arguably, no great connection either with the English or UK way of life, having spent his early childhood in Australia. At university in the 1970s he was a committed Christian and played guitar ...

23. Sailing Close To The Wind (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Confessions of a Labour loyalist Sailing Close To The Wind: Reminiscences Dennis Skinner and Kevin Maguire London: Quercus, £20.00, h/b In his extremely useful memoir of the Blair government, Adam Boulton notes that the unlikely figure of Dennis Skinner had been 'recruited into Blair's big tent'. He goes on to comment on how Skinner 'had been surprisingly cuddly towards his middle-class leader throughout Blair's years '.1 Mark Seddon, the former editor of Tribune, also comments in his memoir on Skinner's 'good relationship with Blair, who would actually have him round to Downing Street on a regular basis '.2 He was less impressed when he learned that Skinner 'regularly reported back from the NEC to ...

24. Poor Innocent Fools, book reviews by John Newsinger (Summer 2012) [Lobster #63 (Summer 2012) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Innocent Fools Off Message Bob Marshall-Andrews London: Profile Books, 2011 £16.99 h/b Standing for Something Mark Seddon London: Biteback Publishing, 2011 £16.99 h/b 'Forty per cent of the British people believe that Blair should be tried as a war criminal. I am one of that number'. Obviously the memoirs of any Labour MP with such admirable views are worth a look and Bob Marshall-Andrews' extremely witty, indeed laugh-out-loud volume, Off Message, does not disappoint. He recalls the heady days when he first entered the Commons in 1997, looking forward to a long period of Labour government that would 'buttress parliamentary power, entrench historic civil liberties which had been ...

25. Steady as she goes: Labour and the spooks [Lobster #35 (Summer 1998)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 35) Summer 1998 Last| Contents| Next Issue 35 Steady as she goes: Labour and the spooks Patriots not sneaks After a year of New Labour I feel beholden to write something on this subject, but what is there worth saying that isn't blindingly and depressingly obvious and predictable? Jack Straw, who took over as Home Secretary, and thus formally as the boss of MI5, is determined to sedate any sleeping dogs he comes across. When former MI5 officer, David Shayler, turned up bearing bad news about MI5, Straw bolted for respectability, proving a worthy inheritor of the Labour tradition of grovelling towards our secret servants exemplified by ...

... the war, the US 'aid' had come with strings attached. Despite his famous remark that he had not taken office to oversee the destruction of His Majesty's empire, Churchill had actually done precisely that to pay for the war: and the process continued after it. It was left to some of the Tory Right and some of the Labour Left- the same groups that are still sceptical of the European Union- to oppose the acceptance of the conditions attached to the post-war US loans. The Council on Foreign Relations Planning for the US takeover of the countries of non-communist Europe was done, during the war, in the Council on Foreign Relations, the informal, semi-secret, ...

... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 47) Summer 2004 Last| Contents| Next Issue 47 Our Friends in the North-East John Elliott The most reported episode at the 2002 Labour Party Conference was the tour of Blackpool made by ex-President Clinton and film star Kevin Spacey. Given the status and photogenic nature of the individuals concerned this was hardly surprising. Little was said in the media, though, about the duos' grand entrance, accompanied by the Prime Minister and his wife, at the Labour Party Northern Social, always one of the better organised and attended events at the week long conference. Held in the main ballroom within the Winter Gardens, a noticeable feature of this episode ...

... Broken Vows Tony Blair the Tragedy of Power Tom Bower London: Faber and Faber, 2016, £20, h/b Tony McWalter, a Labour MP and former philosophy lecturer, rose at Prime Minister's Questions on 28 February 2002 and asked the following question: 'Since my Right Honourable friend is sometimes subject to rather unflattering or even malevolent descriptions of his motivations would he provide the House with a brief characterisation of the political philosophy which he espouses and which underlies his policies?' Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, A.N. Wilson described what followed: 'Mr Blair was, for the moment, uncharacteristically, silenced. Then, he began to waffle in his customary fashion. ...

... along American lines, using the huge increase in student fees to both drive forward marketisation and privatisation, and to reshape the culture of British HE with Humanities provision shrinking and Business and Management Studies expanding (nearly one in four US students studies Business or Management subjects) .1 It is worth remembering that the Review was set up by New Labour with the personnel appointed to produce exactly that outcome. There was no student representation on the panel (something the LibDems actually condemned at the time they were still after student votes) and, of course, no union representation. The review was headed by one of New Labour's favourite businessmen, Baron Browne of Madingley (he was ...

The man tasked with sorting out the financial mess now that Lord Levy has followed Tony Blair into the sunset is his old Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) colleague Jon Mendelsohn. Announcing the appointment of the business lobbyist in August, Labour said Mendelsohn's role would be to 'improve overall organisational efficiency and to develop the party's future financial strategy. ...
