121. Price of Power (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... over 70 endnotes - at least half of the Conservative's recent financial sources remain a mystery. Even so, even in the triangle Challen identifies as being at the heart of the British political system, the City, the secret state and the Conservative Party, there is quite a lot of information available Inevitably, the chapters on the pre-Thatcher years are thinner than those since she came to power. One of the ironies of our time is that while Mrs T took office determind to keep a lid on the public's knowledge of the secret state and the other potential embarassments to our ruling elites, her period in office coincided with an explosion of knowledge in all those areas - ...

122. Briefly [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... a new history of Britain since 1939 ed. Nick Tiratsoo Phoenix (Orion), London,1997, 7.99 pb This collection of essays covering the 1930s through to the arrival of Blair, is worth noting for the final three in which Kenneth O. Morgan on Wilson, editor Tiratsoo on the 1970s and Paul Hirst on the Thatcher period, firmly reject the conventional neo-liberal/Thatcherite redemption drama of slow descent through the sixties into the nightmare of the 70s and salvation under Mrs Thatcher. The three essays are too short to do much more than sketch in their respective theses: Tiratsoo, for example, rattles through the 1970s in 27 pages (it is ...

123. The Committee (Book review) [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... of a Channel Four documentary, 'The Committee', shown in 1991, which made a series of startling allegations about collusion between the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) and Protestant paramilitaries in Northern Ireland in the killing of Catholics. The programme -- which I don't remember -- apparently claimed that the 1985 Anglo-Irish Agreement between the Thatcher Government and that of the Irish Republic convinced significant sections of the Ulster Protestant community that they were going to be sold down the river. This realisation, it is claimed, transformed the hitherto fragmented Protestant political and paramilitary community into a cohesive, province-wide, secret organisation, the Ulster Central Coordinating Committee. This worked with an ...

124. Joseph K and the spooky launderette [Lobster #36 (Winter 1998/9)]
... - Pat confirmed most of it. After having been discovered as the source of the leak to Tam Dayell, Ponting had come to a gentlemen's agreement that he would resign; he would not be prosecuted. This agreement was reached just before Pat and I received Zander's first phone-call. But the Prime Minister was no gentleman. Mrs Thatcher had returned from holiday on the Tuesday and was informed about Ponting. She decided to renege on the agreement Ponting thought he had and nail him to the dock at the Old Bailey - to encourage the others. Legg was one of those chosen to execute the task. These decisions had traditionally been left to the Attorney-General, ...

126. Churchill and Secret Service (Book review) [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... is still very much the dominant viewpoint and forms one of the cornerstones of conservative ideology in post-war Britain. The Churchill myth allowed the Conservative Party, much of which was tainted by appeasement, to confiscate the Second World War and make it their own. This process has continued down to the present day with the likes of Margaret Thatcher, who, having singularly failed to contribute to the war effort at the time, nevertheless subsequently adopted an ersatz Churchillian guise for political advantage. Martin Gilbert's massive multi-volume biography is an overlong statement of this camp's position. The interpretation of the other camp reduces Churchill in size and places him firmly in historical context. From this ...

... reexamine our understanding of British labour - and Labour Party - politics after 1956. For the Common Cause/ IRIS network meddled extensively in Labour Party and union business. Personnel from various intelligence agencies, including IRD, were in or around the so-called Wilson plots and the other psy-ops operations leading up to the election of Mrs Thatcher in 1979. If Common Cause and IRIS are also eventually shown to have also been state operations, historians of post-war British politics will have to rewrite their books to include the fact a largish chunk of their subject matter has, in effect, been covertly controlled by the British state. Which is more or less what Brian ...

... 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 ...

... .3 ). All very well and good, but what is the nature of this 'specific form'? Merely that it has a 'defining ambition to crush the organised working class and to eradicate the reforms won by decades of peaceful struggle'. (p .101) This, I would remind him, could equally well characterise both Thatcherism and the New Labour project. 'Reaction' in Renton's shaky hands is merely shorthand for people whose views he and the SWP leadership (before whom he genuflects) don't like. In case you think I'm a bit harsh on his definition, consider this gem, from somebody who, according to the back cover, has 'made a key ...

... for the Lockerbie bombing; and the subsequent US sanctions. There are all acts by the US; but all carried out by Republican governments. Is it possible that on both sides of the Atlantic the professional diplomats and the rational core of the intelligence community are slowly throwing off some of the vile nonsense perpetrated in the Reagan-Bush-Thatcher years? The release of various official US documents which could easily have been withheld on national security grounds - eg on the CIA's role in Guatemala in the 1960s - suggest something like this.(2 ) The atrocities of the 1980s in Central America, for example, are becoming more visible.
