... view, knowledge of Blunt's activities by either Wilson or the public would have fueled any existing movement towards reform of the security services. Blunt was a cousin of the Queen Mother, after all. Before he died, Andrew Boyle, whose book finally exposing Blunt came soon after her election in 1979, expressed to me his opinion that Margaret Thatcher had withdrawn Blunt's immunity from publicity rather than let him successfully sue Boyle for libel, only to have the truth emerge when Blunt died of old age deeper into her administration. Thatcher had a standing order that there were to be no simmering security scandals during her term of office, no compromised ministers or senior civil servants. This was ...

... a Coalition Government. Did he mean this? Surely the reverse was true. Jenkins, Ashdown and the Lib-Dems were strung along for a couple of years with promises of involvement, electoral reform, none of which came to fruition. etc. At the other end of the spectrum Blair was anxious to be seen to take advice from Margaret Thatcher in the early years of his premiership. No such involvement was offered to previous senior Labour Party figures. The point is tellingly made that Blair is very much a successor to Thatcher. In the field of personal beliefs a convincing case is made by Seldon for Blair being a moral individual. His relationship with God, though, is ...

... 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 equipment back in September ...

114. Climbing the Bookshelves by Shirley Williams (Book review) (Winter 2009/2010) [Lobster #58 (Winter 2009/2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... briefly in the Commons and then in the Lords, she was regularly back among the liberal East Coast fraternity. But readers looking for insight into the US/UK relationship from someone so well positioned will be disappointed, as they will be in seeking any sharp observations on British politics. Those who remember the Callaghan government and the rise of Thatcher may recall Williams and other Labour right-wing ministers vociferously rushing to the defence of one of their number, Reg Prentice, faced with deselection. Prentice subsequently switched parties probably the highest ranking Labour figure ever to defect to the Tories but he doesn't rate a mention in these memoirs. There are lots of similar gaps. There's nothing ...

Instead, the reader is dropped straight into a narrative in which she deplores how 'out of touch' Labour were with 'ordinary people' 33 Winter 2010 in the 80s (which may have been true at that point), without demonstrating that Thatcher and the Tory right were ever more 'in touch' or commanded a consensus of views (they didn't), or that Thatcher would have won so easily without the SDP. Although Mattinson's admiration of Kinnock is clearly genuine, as well as omitting the very basic electoral arithmetic that ultimately explains his failure to win in 1992, she also ...

... adopted by the Conservatives of 'controlling the money supply' (they couldn't even define it), was simply a light disguise (enough to con the media) for creating a recession which they did. Recessions reduce inflation. (Creating more poor people, you reduce demand in the economy, which inhibits price increases.) Like Mrs Thatcher, Peter Jay had been persuaded that there was no alternative. It is not difficult to understand why: in 1976 no-one had ever seen 'Keynesian' policies deal with inflation at 25%. But inflation was coming down when Callaghan made his speech and was falling when Mrs Thatcher won the election in 1979. There's an essay to be ...

Jon Sopel of the BBC never mentioned him in his 1995 Blair biog; in 550 pages on New Labour, The Observer's Andrew Rawnsley gave Murdoch three name checks; and John Rentoul of The Independent on Sunday managed '10 brief mentions' in his big Blair book. Was it any different with Margaret Thatcher? 'Hugo Young's much-praised book on Margaret Thatcher, One of Us, reserves one minor, passing reference to Murdoch,' writes Oborne. Will, the political chroniclers be more outspoken when the next generation of Murdochs inherits the Dirty Digger's mantle of mendacity? Last| Contents| Next ...

A number of cases have made it extremely difficult for councils to sue for libel and/or damage to their reputation(s) .( 6) In the early Thatcher years Tory Party central office set up a section to trawl for, collate and occasionally invent, local government (i.e. anti-Labour) 'stories' that were then fed to the media, giving birth to the 'loony left'.(7) Through the '80s and '90s, as TV programmes such as Beadle's About showed members of the ...
