81. Hack Attack (Book review) (Winter 2014) [Lobster #68 (Winter 2014) (free)] [Free Article]
... their pet politicians. And, of these oligarchs, by far the most powerful since the early 1980s has been Rupert Murdoch. Unfortunately Nick Davies's tremendous Hack Attack demonstrates quite conclusively that far from exaggerating, if anything McBride understated Murdoch's influence, the extent to which modern Britain has been shaped in his image, and the way politicians, both Labour and Conservative, were willing to be of service. Most of the reviews of Hack Attack have focussed on the dramatic story of how Davies and the Guardian hunted down the truth of the hacking scandal despite all the obstacles put in their way by News International, Scotland Yard, the Press Complaints Commission, the rest of the media, ...

... the UK the worst trade to current account balance in the developed world. Germany – where they make things – has the best. In the olden times, and certainly pre-1979, the monthly trade figures were a piece of ritualised political theatre that required urgent announcements, elaborate explanations, and, sometimes, finished political careers (usually Labour). This is no longer the case. Even The Times opined that Britain imports too much and its only hope if it wishes to reverse this is to devalue urgently so that its manufacturing industries can recapture overseas markets. The main stumbling block to this is considered to be the continued maintenance of the pound at too high a level ...

... , the Company was confident in its capacity to create and manage Business-friendly regimes. territories. Instead, what has been called 'an archipelago of empire' was preferred.2 0 This meant expanding the British principle of indirect rule by creating and supporting nominally independent regimes that bear all the social costs through extortionate taxation, while assuring that labour and natural resources are freely accessible to US corporations — in Vietnam's case, particularly those operating in Japan. Unlike industrial economies, peasant economies, such as those prevailing in southern Korea and Vietnam, are still structured around land ownership and use. Industrialised populations such as those of Europe and the US already have structures easily manipulated by corporations ...

... best not to dwell on Kenya too much!) and later on in Northern Ireland. A substantial literature celebrated British counterinsurgency prowess with the likes of Robert Thompson, Richard Clutterbuck and Frank Kitson being accorded the status of counterinsurgency gurus. Attempts to challenge this consensus were batted away without too much difficulty.1 Until that is, the New Labour decision to provide military support for the US adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan. Certainly, the British record was most vulnerable in Kenya where it was always clear that terrible atrocities had been carried out by the military and the police. Two particular books, David Anderson's Histories of the Hanged (2005) and Caroline Elkins' Imperial Reckoning: ...

... as a discipline in England and Göttingen to supply scholarship to defend European colonialism,3 it is worth asking what policy purpose The Sleepwalkers is intended to defend. Great Britain has pursued two consistent foreign policy principles since the French Revolution. The first is to control the seas and the access to cheap (or free) raw materials (including labour) throughout the world. The second has been to keep Europe divided against itself both to assure access to its markets and to weaken potential imperial competitors. This was a policy understood even in those ancient days before NATO or the European Union. It was one of the main reasons that England was called 'perfidious Albion' on the Continent ...

Under the Public Records Act 1958 public records were normally made available for inspection in the PRO, now called the National Archives, after 50 years. This was reduced in 1967 to 30 years by the Labour government after a successful campaign by historians and others. Subsequently the Dacre Review recommended that the 30 year rule should be replaced by 15 years. The Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 reduced the 30 year rule to 20 years for some records with this target been reached over an extended period of time. The Public Records Act made provision ...

... and maintained by the major corporate conglomerates whose central goal was to perpetuate the military-industrial gravy train that World War II brought them.3 In short the 'Cold War' meant for anyone except the white middle-class and the ruling elite, the suppression of demands for peacetime economic justice. As Tony Benn, the recently deceased UK Labour politician, once said: after the war people asked, if we could organise full- employment for war, why couldn't we organise full- employment for peace?4 This question was answered with the domestic side of the 'Cold War' – namely employment for war is the only employment profitable enough to justify the engagement of private enterprise ...

... told William Buckley Jr. and the members of the Cambridge Union in 1965: 'From a very literal point of view, the harbours and the ports and the railroads of the country – the economy, especially in the South – could not conceivably be what they are if it had not been (and this is still so) for cheap labour. I am speaking very seriously, and this is not an overstatement: I picked cotton, I carried it to the market, I built the railroads under someone else's whip for nothing. For nothing. ' There is a significant difference between Baldwin's claim to have built America and the regime's rulers' infamy for founding it. Unfortunately ...

His view of most English politicians was highly negative – 'squeamish' and 'old women' are two characteristic descriptions – especially Labour ministers of course, who 'with less of a feeling of the "White Man's Burden" on their shoulders' (that's Edwards) were quite happy to begin the 'scuttle', leaving their Tory successors little alternative but to continue down the same road. His rows with them over Aden exposed the existing 'ruptures in the relationship' between ...

DPP' 1 and that in 1977 that file was acquired – impounded might be appropriate – by MI5.2 In this period MI5 contained a faction which believed that Harold Wilson was, or might be, a Soviet agent, and that the Labour Party was influenced, if not controlled by, the KGB. This faction had allies within the Army, among former intelligence officers, the police and CIA assets, notably the Institute for the Study of Conflict. I presume that this MI5 faction was feeding the derogatory material to Information Policy. There is no information on how high within ...
