... complete hash of it. But ruthlessness is the Party's strength, as we saw in 1990, and one which its principal opposition failed to grasp. However, the instinct for survival is strongest, as one would expect, in those who have exercised power at the highest levels - among the Men in Suits. From Chamberlain through Heath and Thatcher, each deposed leader retained the support of the Party beyond Westminster. Tory supporters in their associations and clubs felt a great sense of loss and bereavement upon the dispatch of these great people. Even the bulk of the Parliamentary Party seemed to be at a loss to understand why Chamberlain had to go, and then their favoured successor was ...

... have been informed, on the basis of the former's responsibility for SIS and the latter's interest in intelligence affairs, not to mention her 'specific interest in Iraq's activities'.(1 ) All the same, a careful reading of the Scott Report does support Miller's general if not specific conclusions. Sir Richard does show, for example, that Thatcher, along with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department of Trade and Industry, and the Ministry of Defence, knew all about the bank-rolling of defence exports to Iraq. This was done through the 'defence allocation', set up by the Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD) to facilitate Iraqi purchases of military-related ...

... bugs, decoded telegrams, photographs of all entrants to the building and sources within should have alerted the authorities to impending danger. Surely the Libyan gunman would have been under strict orders to avoid at all costs any possibility of hitting a police officer with the predictable and very costly consequences for the Libyan regime and economy? And why did the Thatcher government allow the 22 employees of the embassy to leave the country without hindrance? Hints from Ministers The then Home Secretary, Leon Brittan, was so unhappy with the performance of MI5 that he threatened a drastic reorganisation. Reliable press sources believe that the Security Service retaliated by spreading rumours about Brittan's sex life, even producing anonymous fliers containing ...

... Soviet nukes and grossly over-estimated the tonnage of Soviet chemical and biological weapons. Urban comes close to inviting the reader to conclude the billion or so a year this country spends on the spooks is money wasted. For much of the past twenty years none of this mattered much, for the intelligence services had one major fan - Mrs Thatcher. If no-one else took their reports seriously, she did, taking them home in the evenings; and under her the spooks' budgets more than doubled. This isn't so surprising. Mrs Thatcher's rise was managed by Airey Neave, whose 'intelligence connections' even she acknowledges in the first volume of her memoirs; and when ...

... which had little interest in the domestic manufacturing economy, and the significant minority of his party which did not approve of dealing with unions.(22) Consequently, for both parties corporatism, as it became known, proved difficult to implement, though the economic results of those years in terms of output and employment were infinitely better than the Thatcher experiments which followed them. Under Thatcher, Howe and Lawson, the overseas sector was given everything it had always wanted - no exchange controls, high interest rates and no controls on lending - with predictably disastrous results for the domestic economy.(23) The Labour Party's response The Labour Party leadership used to understand the conflict between the ...

This is the Dulverton Trust, a charity based on the Wills family tobacco fortune.(3 ) Grant-seekers must apply to a panel of high-powered Conservatives. Trustees listed for 1994 include Lord Carrington, Foreign Secretary under Mrs Thatcher and currently Chair of the Bilderberg organisation; Lord Gowrie, former arts minister and chair of the Arts Council; and John Kemp-Wallace, former chair of the Stock Exchange. The income generated by Dulverton's capital comes to well over 2,000,000 a year, which is dished out to mostly unexceptional causes. Who could ...

... to Detective Superintendant and put in charge of Tasking and Coordination Group (South), responsible for all covert operations in the Armagh and Tyrone area, coordinating the activities of Special Branch, SAS and MI5. By the 1990s the British government was seeking an accommodation with Sinn Fein and counter-terror was passing out of favour. Whereas under Thatcher, the SAS ( 'her boys') had what amounted to a license to kill PIRA volunteers, under John Major the license was revoked. After 1990 the Chief Constable had to personally approve any SAS deployment and such approval was not forthcoming. Phoenix describes how on one occasion senior officers arrived in his office to supervise an operation ...

... American Project's own account of its foundation makes no reference to the President's remarks, but clearly shares the same concern for an improvement in US-UK relations when, in the early Eighties, both the Labour and Liberal parties opposed the major arms spending increases - nuclear and non-nuclear - central to Reagan and the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher. In the BAP version of its foundation it would appear that the institution of regular meetings of '24 Americans and 24 Britons aged between 28 and 40 who by virtue of their present accomplishments had given indication that, in the succeeding generation, they would be leaders in their country and perhaps internationally' was the idea of two old Oxford ...

... , 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 the Blair faction have, in turn, accepted as legitimate much of what was done in her name. The Tory and Labour Thatcherites see the 1970s as a disaster ...

... and most expensive privately-funded political dirty tricks campaign in recent British history. The astonishing 15-year campaign waged against Owen Oyston by Michael Murrin, the owner of a fish and chip shop in the village of Longridge, Lancs, was backed by help and cash payments raised by two former government ministers and a millionaire friend of Margaret Thatcher. The former Tory ministers are Sir Robert Atkins and Lord Blaker. Their target was the Labour Party's biggest private contributor in the days of Neil Kinnock's leadership. Sir Robert Atkins was once John Major's best friend in the Commons. He was the MP for South Ribble from 1983 to 1996 and a minister at the Department of Trade and ...
