... a crude and inappropriate reading of power with such communities and, instead, allows us to understand better how bias is perpetrated and disseminated within, and beyond, the transnational elite network. ' (p . 13) I also noted a retelling of the story, originally recounted by Jon Ronson in the Guardian in 1999, of how Mrs Thatcher was invited to the 1975 meeting and wowed a number of Americans who were there, which led to her being taken seriously and promoted in the US. That her simple-minded views made a good impression on the gathering may tell us a lot about those present; but she had already been spotted by the US embassy in London ...

... are many) was going to stop it, as long as this country was committed to being a military nuclear power. 'Consultation' is not democracy; public inquiries are not Socratic dialogues; for the most part they are the necessary pantomimes to rubber- stamp decisions taken in Whitehall. On the other hand, this was 1984: the Thatcher regime was still being challenged by the left; the Labour Party had not then embraced the 'Washington consensus'; the American banks had not completed their take-over of British economic thinking; the Cold War had been revived for the benefit of the American arms companies and opposition to American power and nuclear power was significant. The British ...

94. The Cuntocracy [Lobster #62 (Winter 2011 ) (free)] [Free Article]
... exact origin of something can be obviated quite simply: we simply provide our own mythology; people are a lot more willing to go along with myths rather than waste time finding out facts. If a trick works once it might just work again. One overlooked aspect of F. A. Hayek's The Road to Serfdom (the book Margaret Thatcher slapped the table with saying that it had taken over her mind) is in a short section called 'Why the Worst Get on Top', where it is argued that the most amorally flexible people involved in a bureaucracy tend to rise to the top and become its leaders.8 Hayek pretended he was writing on 'totalitarianism', something ...

... maps left over from the 1973/4 strike and sent some of their 'flying pickets' to stand outside sites that had been closed. I supported the strike until the 1974 so-called 'Ridley plan' (2 ) was revived in the media. This made it clear that the miners had been pushed into a strike for which the Thatcher wing of the Tory Party and the state had been preparing for a decade – Miners' Strike 2, the Showdown with the Left – and thus the miners were doomed. On page 245 of this book the authors write: 'the Prime Minister thought she was on a crusade against an Antichrist. After vanquishing the Argentineans she was going ...

His 'Searching for the Successor Generat-ion: Public Diplomacy, the US Embassy's International Visitor Program and the Lab-our Party in the 1980s'(1 ) shows how the ...

... in 1973 Prime Minister Edward Heath refused to allow the Americans to use British bases in Cyprus for intelligence gathering during the Yom Kippur war between Israel and some of its Arab neighbours; and that this resulted in a temporary halt in the US signals intelligence flow to the UK. Heath was defeated two years later in a leadership contest by Margaret Thatcher, whom the Americans had been cultivating and promoting since 1967 as a potential leader of the Conservative Party. This may have been pay-back for Heath daring to defy the Americans. An American colony?Is Britain then just an American colony? Not in any conventional sense of colony. At any rate, if we have been ...

... common feature in all developed economies during the last forty or fifty years, but the UK experience has been more intense than in many comparable economies. In 1960 manufacturing accounted for 35 per cent of the UK GDP. It fell back from this level over the subsequent twenty years, but its share still remained over 30 per cent. The Thatcher years saw a much more rapid decline, as large parts of British industry closed down while the financial and service sectors expanded. This process slowed down, and was for a time even reversed during the Major Premiership, but by the end of the 1990s manufacturing was contributing a little over 20 per cent to the GDP. The contraction ...

100. Politics and Paranoia [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... But it wasn't just prejudice on my part. I had tried. Before I began Lobster, me and another bloke in Hull, Colin Challen, now a Labour MP, produced a radical local monthly magazine. I stayed involved for about 20 issues, none of which sold more than 500 copies. At that time, four years into Thatcher, her big recession in full swing, local radical mags were springing up all over Britain. I remember attending a conference in 1984 at which we all got together. But they all went bust, as far as I know. Yes, in Hull we couldn't get the distribution; and yes, we couldn't get the adver- ...
