... sections of the right wing press and the security establishment, his insider information was very useful. But a few paragraphs further on he wrote this: 'Not all whistle blowers are motivated by a desire to expose corruption, crimes or wrongdoing. In Spycatcher, Peter Wright famously exposed the cabal of MI5 officers who had plotted to destabilise Harold Wilson's Labour Government. He was motivated by a personal dispute with the service over his pension rights. Not long before his death, he admitted on national television that he had made up the Wilson Plot. By then, though, it was too late because the authorities had na vely tried to ban the book rather than hold an independent inquiry ...

... owed considerably less to his somewhat undistinguished war record than it did to the entree into the world of high politics provided by his affairs with a number of well connected married women. His marriage to Lord Curzon's daughter, Cimmie, consolidated his position within the country's governing elite. Impatience for preferment led to his defection from the Conservatives to the Labour Party where he was welcomed with open arms. Both he and his wife became Labour MPs and in 1929 he became a junior minister in the Labour government. Mosley did not allow his membership of the Labour Party to interfere with his playboy life-style, a life-style that included a succession of affairs with upper class women ...

Wheeler, 'The Blair doctrine: advancing the Third Way in the world' conclude (p . 74): 'The good intentions of assisting the independence of the East Timorese have been undermined completely by the fact that Labour did not take a principled stand on the question of arms shipments to Jakarta. ' Mark Wickham-Jones, 'Labour Party politics and foreign policy', concludes pp.109/110: 'How could the claim about an ethical dimension be reconciled with the continuance of arms manufacturing so important to the UK economy? In retrospect, disappointment ...

... economy became competitive with the West German one. Which was the idea. A more recent example is that of Britain's forced ejection from the ERM in 1992. Far from being mainly inflationary in its effect, sterling's release from a deflationary straightjacket blunted the effects of the early nineties recession and set the British economy onto the road of which New Labour is now so proud. The current government front bench were, of course, enthusiastic supporters of British entry into the ERM in 1990, and at the overvalued rate which subsequently forced our exit. No doubt they thought sterling was simply hitching an anti-inflationary piggy-back ride on the German mark. In essence, Mills holds ...

' Cursed by slow delivery from underfinanced British component suppliers and starved of investment [diverted to car making subsidiaries acquired at the suggestion of the Labour government] Leyland lost out to GM in the Latin American bus market. Enter Jack Anderson No-one at Leyland appears to have suspected any skullduggery until 1975, when a Washington Post headline 'CIA Accused in '64 Thames Collision' appeared on a story from the Capitol Hill columnist Jack Anderson. Anderson and Les Wilton reported that sources in ...

How to explain this trajectory? Francis Beckett's new biography is of particular interest because it is an attempt by the man's son, a left wing journalist (New Statesman education correspondent) and historian, to understand what his father became in the ...
