31. Shameless! (book reviews) (2011) [Lobster #62 (Winter 2011 ) (free)] [Free Issue]
... It is unclear whether the book or Wikipedia is to be relied on; or if, possibly, a composite narrative of Smith's career could be assembled from them. This is a shame because Smith clearly had an interesting life. Red Dan He came from a strongly nonconformist and left of centre family, his father being active in the Independent Labour Party (ILP) in the early 1900s. By 1936 T Dan had joined him, moving rapidly to a significant position in the hierarchy of this small party. He was also a lecturer at the now forgotten Labour Colleges and heavily involved with the Peace Pledge Union, speaking frequently at mass meetings and rallies around the UK. In ...

... obituaries in the major media were reasonable. The broadsheets were fair-minded and covered his life's main points without snidery. There were no obvious inaccuracies and, in terms of column inches, they were probably longer than usually accorded to a backbench MP. The accounts were clear that he was independently minded and latterly something of a rogue elephant on the Labour benches. Perhaps they could have paused to reflect on how much he had achieved by the time he was thirty-five: brought up by a single parent on a council estate, he had already served in the RAF, graduated from Oxford, worked in the Civil Service (with Bob Mellish MP at the Ministry of Housing), and ...

33. Tittle-tattle: New Labour - old Spooks? [Lobster #42 (Winter 2001/2)]

Fijian politics, which has been made increasingly chaotic by various coups and counter-coups over the last 14 years, is dominated by racial identity interests. On the one side are the native Fijians, the original Polynesian inhabitants of the island, and on the other, the Indian Fijians. The native Fijians, though still comprising 51% of the population, feel that that they are in danger of being relegated to the position of tourist fodder; while the Indians feel that their democratic political rights are being permanently hamstrung by constitutions which ...

(c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 34) Winter 1998 Last| Contents| Next Issue 34 Back to the future: the 1970s reconsidered Introduction I write this as a member of 'old Labour', and like others of that ilk, I am looking for a way out of the present farce-cum-nightmare of a Labour Party lead by a tiny group of not very bright Thatcherites.(1) To understand where we are now, we have to go back to the 1970s. For the 1970s led to Mrs. Thatcher, which led to the progressive collapse of Labour as a radical, reforming party.(2) Mrs. Thatcher claimed legitimacy from the events of the 1970s ...

... - and they are little more than preliminary musings and jottings- something of what the content of MI5 information gathering (and misinformation generation) actually looked like is visible. Wallace made these notes between the two general elections of 1974 and it is the anticipated second election which hangs over them. The central theme is MI5's claim, that the Labour Party of 1974 was under the influence of the Soviet Union: 'It is estimated that between 20 and 30 Labour MPs are members of the Communist Party." And there is a list of Labour politicians "who are belief to be communists and who hold positions of influence"; viz. Labour MPs Benn, Mikado, Owen ( ...

... Observer offering access through his former lobbyist business partner, Derek Draper? Loyalty cannot be an adequate explanation. Within days of the story tailing away Blair had sacked several members of his Cabinet, including Harriet Harman, one of his most devoted supporters. And as Blair's team were battling to protect Liddle they were simultaneously planning the removal of faithful Labour MEPs from winning positions on next year's Euro election lists and denying Labour MPs and other senior figures in the party the chance to stand for the new Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly and the mayoralty of London. Contrast, too, the dispatch with which Ron Davies was removed from the Cabinet in October for an action arguably tangential to ...

37. The meaning of the QinetiQ scandal [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 55) Summer 2008 Last| Contents| Next Issue 55 The meaning of the QinetiQ scandal John Newsinger The privatisation of part of the Ministry of Defence's Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) has been generally reported as a financial scandal. More important is what it tells us about the politics of New Labour. There are two dimensions to this: first there is New Labour's commitment to big business and in particular to the arms industry; but second and, arguably even more important, there is New Labour's willingness to integrate the British defence establishment with the United States' military-industrial complex. In 2003, New Labour took the decision to privatise ...

Gould's rise from obscure advertising man to pollster and 'strategist' to the prime minister and if we are to believe him, senior US and Israeli politicians coincided with that of New Labour. His associate for much of that time, Deborah Mattinson, now heads Opinion Leader Research (OLR), part of the Chime Communications empire of Tim (since 1990, Lord) Bell, who served in a somewhat similar advisory capacity to Margaret Thatcher. I have yet to see any report of how much of Gould and Mattinson's ...

Once again we can read about:* the Communist Party's Liaison Committee for the Defence of Trade Unions, which resulted in the CP having 'an influence within the trade union movement vastly out of proportion to its numbers' (pp. 13/4 );* the Institute for Workers' Control (chapter 3);* the decision of the Labour Party to abolish the proscription list of organisations to which members of the Labour Party could not ...
