291. Our Friends in the North-East [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... (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 ...

292. The view from the Bridge [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... (c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 47) Summer 2004 Last | Contents | Next Issue 47 The view from the Bridge Paddy the spook Since the last issue I have skimmed Paddy Ashdown's two volumes of diaries. While dominated by his attempt to do a deal with the Blair-led Labour Party, there are some other interesting snippets; and, through Ashdown's eyes, there is a detailed portrait of Tony Blair which suggests that Rory Bremner's impersonation of him on Channel 4 has got it about right. Pages and pages of conversation with Blair are reproduced verbatim. Ashdown claims he wrote down their conversations as soon as his meetings with Blair ...

... (c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 47) Summer 2004 Last | Contents | Next Issue 47 Tittle-tattle Tom Easton The ties that bind The treatment of Andrew Gilligan blamed by the internal BBC inquiry while all his superiors escaped censure throws a little more light on the tightness of the New Labour network. Conducting the investigation was Caroline Thomson, the BBC director of policy, who is married to Roger Liddle, Tony Blair's adviser on defence. Thomson and Liddle, whose role as a lobbyist while on the No 10 payroll was revealed in 1998 by Greg Palast (see Lobster 36 ), are very old friends of Peter Mandelson. ...

294. Lobster Issue 47: Contents [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... world can handle the likes of Bin Laden a lot more easily than it can a USA, in the grip of dim, fundamentalist Christian nutters, armed to the teeth and bent on 'full spectrum dominance'. As the text for this issue was being finished, the British media was full of stories about disillusion with Tony Blair and New Labour. Just this once I'll say it: Lobster that is this writer and other contributors never believed a word of it and the analyses of 'New Labour' in issue 33, published a couple of months after Blair's election victory in 1997, remain cogent today. As Gore Vidal said, the best three words in the English language are ...

... U.K's sensitive defence-related nuclear industry to privatisation. A consortium including Brown and Root had taken over the Aldermaston Weapons Establishment (AWE) in 1993, and one of the founders of that consortium had in 1994 been appointed director of the Dounreay Nuclear Establishment.(30) The AWE decision was roundly attacked in the Commons by Labour MP Frank Cook, who claimed that Brown and Root's record in the U.S . running nuclear contracts was abysmal. He pointed to the South Texas Nuclear Project, which was $5 billion over budget and 9 years late, and on which Brown and Root, whilst denying all the allegations, had nevertheless paid 469 million in ...

... was under pressure to provide the government with what it wanted, namely that Iraq possessed WMD and was a danger. Intelligence was "cherry-picked", with damning intelligence against Iraq being selectively chosen, while intelligence assessments, which might have worked against the build-up to war, were sidelined. Intelligence work had become politicised under Labour, and spies were taking orders from politicians. They provided worst-case scenarios which were use by politicians to make factual claims. ' (3 ) There were no names and no hints of names in the story and no surprises in it. We have to take this on trust. But the author was Neil Mackay, who ...

... on that period ranging from Indonesia to British Guiana, from Diego Garcia to Oman, and then moves on to later political and military interventions for which the 'war against terrorism' is the new catchall defence. He challenges head-on the Blair claim to be a force for good in the world: 'The reality is that Britain under New Labour is a systematic violator of international law and ethical standards in its foreign policy in effect, an outlaw state. It is a key ally of some of the world's most repressive regimes that is consistently condoning, and sometimes actively aiding, human rights abuses. ' Why has this not been widely recognised by the British tax-payers who ...

... sector. No-one else has played such a significant role in that respect' (May 5th, 1993). It seems reasonable, ten years on, to add a footnote for the historians and, for others, a bit of analysis. The story is that Simon Haskel (later Lord Haskel), then Chair of the Labour Finance & Industry Group (LFIG), asked me to help out Geoff Mulgan. I had been active in the LFIG aspects of the media communications programme which had been designed to show that Kinnock's Labour Party had at least some business support (this was before the 'prawn cocktail circuit'). This programme had been judged a limited ...

... march by: Bevan, Wilson, Callaghan, Healey, Robert Maxwell; and there are interesting stories about all of them. The best anecdote has Denis Healey, as Chancellor in the House of Commons in 1976, under attack from his own benches during a debate on public expenditure, turning round at the despatch box and shouting to his Labour critics: 'And you can go and fuck yourselves. ' The most striking figure in the story, however, is Edward Heath, portrayed by Goodman as a centre-left European corporatist, leading the wrong political party. Goodman's Edward Heath was the friend of the TUC in his search for industrial partnership along German lines and was' ...
