122. Fifth Column: The decadence of our political system [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... as far as we would have liked from being a clique of gentleman desirous of preserving their property. Investigators in both the US and in the UK have tended to assume that journalists should be concerned solely with failures to follow the rules (hypocrisy) or with anomalies and injustices for which new rules should be created. Investigators are almost painfully liberal. The forms of constitutionalism are important to them and this quaint belief in the system working properly, rather like the belief of peasants that the Little Father, the Tsar, would improve matters if only he knew what was going on, may have halted investigation into the flaws in the system itself, in the way that the rules ...

123. All the news that fits [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... , 2008, £17.99, For many taking a dissenting view of our national life, The Guardian and The Observer have long been part of our diet – the morning fix that sustains us in our daily desire for a better world. Since 1975, Peter Preston has been the principal gatekeeper at The Guardian, the paper of liberal conscience launched in Manchester in 1821 as the voice of reforming non-conformity. For 20 years he was editor and then became columnist and eminence grise when The Observer came under the wing of the by-then London-based Scott Trust. One of the Preston's earliest protégés when he took over the daily's editorship at 37 was Roger ...

124. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... Whatever the circumstances of the unlikely Wilson-Goldsmith relationship, the views that Goldsmith held, then and subsequently, were firmly to the right of centre. In 1977 he provided much of the money for the launch of another think tank, the Adam Smith Institute. Like the Centre for Policy Studies, this promoted ideas of deregulation and economic liberalism that had last been current in Britain in the 1920s. Many commentators have noted that as the 70s progressed Goldsmith made increasingly apocalyptic utterances. In 1977 he was writing to Lord Londonderry (the brother of Lady Annabel Birley) and putting the question ' .does he want his son growing up in a country where sewage flowing in the ...

... been brought in to advise Brown on welfare reform! If the Thatcher government had appointed someone like her to such a position, Labour MPs would have been outraged. Today, barely a murmur. There were some protests about the QinetiQ scandal. Mark Serwotka of the PCS union described the affair as 'obscene'. It was condemned by various Liberal Democrat and Tory MPs, and even by the odd Labour MP. The government, however, defended it as a 'good deal' for the taxpayer. Indeed, Lord Drayson, then the Minister for Defence Procurement, actually described it as 'a model for future privatisations'. The government attitude was perhaps best shown by the fact that ...

126. The View from the Bridge [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... ? And is that 'innovative flair' all those dodgy financial instruments which are self-destructing at the moment? Has a politician ever been more spectacularly hoist on his own petard? John Newsinger, a regular in these columns, has a very good essay on Brown in issue 30 of Variant, 'Gordon Brown: from reformism to neo-liberalism'.(4 ) What Newsinger does not do – I presume because the information is simply not available; I certainly don't have it – is explain why Brown shifted between 1988 and 1995 from being some kind of social democrat to being the neo-con, free marketeer we see today. We know some of Brown's journey in ...

... known, a compromised activity – is further distorted by television into a form of entertainment (this statement would be huffily rejected by the sanctimonious blind men who administer the news). In selecting what is newsworthy and deciding on how to treat it, the media operate with an array of moral and political assumptions, roughly speaking those of the liberal-individualist ideology of Western culture with its emotivist ethics and hidden dependence on existing power structures. After Dark broke all these rules from the beginning, built as it was by the Viennese to reflect the polygon of views that is real life, rather than the binary fallacy of yes/no, pro/contra stylised debates. Somehow ...

... to attack by the National Front, e.g . at Brick Lane. It was amplified by the political defeat of the working class by the coercive state and the consequent proliferation of ethnic identity politics as an expression of alienation and primitive rebellion.(27) The problem with Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses was not – as identity-besotted liberals writing in The Guardian suggest – that it gave Britain's Muslims a focus for their identity. Rather The Satanic Verses was published after the political defeat of the working class and the left, by the coercive state, at a time when Asian communities were looking to their own self-styled leaders for ways of dealing with racism and fascism ...

... and Turkey) military and more secular interests operating 'against the people'. And so Britain arrived East of Suez on a false prospectus and without adequate resources and planning between 2001 and 2003. As we go into 2008, it is stuck there as part of a violent cultural struggle in which its allies are, in some cases, less liberal than some of its critics. The UK has been trapped into a commitment to a far-away country that will be expensive and possibly futile in the long run in terms of the original liberal aspirations of 2001. Already, Afghanistan has given up on one liberal value – execution by firing squad is back on the agenda. But ...

... of the above, do you reckon, do we get this? 'I gradually became aware that the conventional narrative structure which is used to give sense and meaning to British politics was extremely misleading. Though the public is told that Tory and Labour are in opposition, that is not really the case. They are led to believe that the Liberal Democrats are an insurgent third party, but that is not the case. It has come to seem to me that their strongest loyalties are to each other. ' Oborne's denunciation of the way the 'Political Class' is ruining his beloved Britain is a compelling read. His detailing of the corruption, venality, nepotism and mendacity of the ...
