121. The Making of New Labour's European Policy [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... the City been 'anti' the EU, Labour, reformed or not, would have been anti. It has now been forgotten that between 1980 and 1986, the year of the publication of leader Neil Kinnock's book Making Our Way, the Labour Party as an institution had grasped that the interests of the City of London were the core of Thatcher economics - Labour MPs' constituents were unemployed because of it. You might have thought that since everybody hates the bankers, and they were getting fat in the 1980s, it wouldn't be too hard to produce a popular campaign along those lines. This does not seem to have been considered. The City was perceived as controlling the news ...

... Minister have effectively ignored Rupert Murdoch'. 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 ...

123. Climbing the Bookshelves by Shirley Williams (Book review) (Winter 2009/2010) [Lobster #58 (Winter 2009/2010)(free)] [Free Article]
... 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. ...

124. Gordon Brown: in the country of the blind... (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Article]
... Trotskyite 'Broad Left' from the early 70s, as well as the leadership ambitions of Michael Foot. 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 ...

125. That option no longer exists (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Article]
... 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 ...

... 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 ...

128. Where's Ware? [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... Simon Matthews Local government -- and local politicians -- generally get a bad press, some of it deserved, some not. British law tends to support this. 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 ...

... but does not spell out the details beyond the much publicised jolly to hang-out with the Contras taken in 1985 by FCS Vice-Chair David Hoile and a trip in 1986 to the Heritage Foundation for 11 FCS activists. Although there are still libertarian strands within the Tory Party, David Hoile and his colleagues were on the good ship Thatcher, and when she went down, so did they. (For a while they seemed to genuinely believe that Mrs Thatcher was a libertarian; a bit like believing that Blair and Brown are socialists. ) The book's title is slightly misleading: the sociology takes up only a small section at the end. This is basically a history ...
