91. Politics and Paranoia [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... 11 eventually sold over 4,000 copies and pretty much set the magazine on its feet.) Not that Lobster 11 was an immediate success. The journalists to whom we dished out copies at a press conference in the House of Commons in 1986 were not interested and, while we thought we had a story which might bring down the Thatcher government if taken seriously, not a word appeared in print in the following months. Figuring that my part in the story was over, that the major media would pick up the ball, I went back to other material (the British Right) for the next issue of Lobster and not a word about Colin and Fred appeared in ...

This is a detailed account of some of the intellectual processes behind 'New Labour', focusing on IPPR and Demos in particular. The author has read the documents, articles and pamphlets produced by the little group of intellectuals who paved ...

94. I married a war criminal [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... disgraceful is her brief mention of the 1986 Wapping strike which is, in a roundabout way, blamed on the print workers' 'corruption', which she was familiar with, she tells us, through her 'employment law work'. This is a complete travesty. The strike was deliberately provoked by Murdoch, with the full support of the Thatcher government, in order to deny the workers their redundancy payments. She must have known this at the time through, as she puts it, her 'employment law work', but now she chooses to parrot the Murdoch-line. Moreover, the way the strike was policed was such a scandal that it provoked a report, 'A Case To ...

95. Punk monetarism [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... . The most obvious parallel work to this one is From Anger to Apathy by Mark Garnett (Jonathan Cape, 2007). The differences between them are not confined to the fact that Garnett's book, another rattling good read, traces the story from the mid-1970s to now, while Mr Turner begins in 1970 and calls a halt when Mrs Thatcher takes office in May 1979. Mr Garnett is unafraid to interpose his opinions into his own narrative, as when he declares that private medicine and education should have no place 'in a democratic society which wanted to see itself as genuinely fair and meritocratic'. You get the feeling that Mr Turner would consider this sort of intervention to be ...

97. The once and future king? [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... campaign to oust Freeson from Brent East (1980-1985) many journalists were clearly puzzled at the insistence of Livingstone and his allies that they were campaigning against a 'right-wing' MP.(18) But for bureaucratic reasons, neither Livingstone nor Knight achieved their objectives before the 1983 General Election. The Brent East selection was not finalised by the time Thatcher asked for Parliament to be dissolved and Freeson automatically remained the Labour candidate. Knight failed in an effort to become PPC for Coventry North East.(19) Plan B However, although Plan A didn't work, Plan B, taking over the GLC, did. Livingstone became leader of the GLC in May 1981 and quickly became a ...

98. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... Edward Heath, whom he met in June 1974 an event organised by Clermont Club regular Jim Slater, at the house of Peter Walker MP and appears to have believed that, had Heath won a subsequent election (and become prime minister in, say, 1975) he would have been given a peerage and a significant government position. Supporting Thatcher While these discussions took place, Goldsmith was funding a UK political project implicitly hostile to Heath, the Centre for Policy Studies, launched in June 1974 with the endorsement of Sir Keith Joseph and Margaret Thatcher, and with the late Alfred Sherman as its first director. Heath did not return to power. In the October 1974 general election ...

99. Maggie, Maggie, Maggie! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... ) Summer 2008 Last| Contents| Next Issue 55 Maggie, Maggie, Maggie! Next year will be the 30th anniversary of Mrs Thatcher's first election victory and the onset of the demented world as we know it in this country. No doubt books and TV programmes are being prepared. The most striking account of the first part of the Thatcher events is John Hoskyn's Just In Time: inside the Thatcher revolution (London: Aurum Press, 2000). Hoskyns was an army officer who became a businessman. He is a recognisable type: the clever alpha male, used to being in charge and intolerant of fools, who looked at Britain in the early 1970s and saw chaos ...

100. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... and that resources hitherto channelled into coup plots went to Aims of Industry, the Economic League and other anti-union initiatives.(5) But the kind of government King envisaged was the kind of government we now have in place, in Britain, without a shot being fired or a tank rolling down Whitehall. To put it another way, Thatcherism may well have been the historically necessary mechanism by which post-war social democracy was destroyed in Britain and replaced by the coercive state, but it could not establish the consensus for such a state.(6) For that one needed a Labour Party led by right-wing renegades whose background in Stalinism would empower them to reconcile the working class to ...
