131. Steady Eddie blows the gaff [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... is precisely what Eddie George is describing. Gordon Brown gave away the right of the chancellor of the exchequer to do this when he created the MPC. As it turns out, at the first sign of recession the MPC behaved just like any demand management 'Keynesian' politician of the type that was supposed to have been made extinct in the Thatcher years with one huge difference: before Mrs Thatcher the government would have used public, state spending to create demand in the domestic economy; the MPC have used credit card debt and borrowing against the value of houses in a striking innovation in the annals of `Keynesian' demand management. In 1976 Prime Minister James Callaghan became notorious on ...

132. At Her Majesty's Secret Service, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... Defendant by past (or present) officers.... incidents, operations, investigations and other matters which have not previously been made public. ' You can't buy an endorsement better than that, thanks very much. And if 'the Establishment' was cross with 'West' it didn't stop him becoming a Conservative MP; and under Margaret Thatcher, who hated dishers of dirt and secrets. So, for me, 'West' has always been a puzzle: a conservative (and Conservative) historian of spookery with ambiguous relations with the services about which he was writing. I bought his first books back in the days when there were so few books you bought everything, then ...

133. Mind control, mobiles and the military [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... author/director of the much acclaimed The Power of Nightmares (about the so-called 'war on terror'), The Century of the Self (about the uses of psychological research in marketing), The Mayfair Set (about a section of the British right in London in the 1970s considered as a microcosm of and forerunner to the Thatcher era) and, most recently, The Trap. I didn't think much of The Trap's thesis and thought its version of the concept of freedom contrived and philosophically unintelligible, but the rest of them were seriously good. If Opening Pandora's Box gets shown again, watching it, as Tony Frewin would say, will be mandatory for all ...

134. Good-bye Tony [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... after contract. By redefining the state as a corporation, British 'subjects' (you've never been 'citizens') are transformed into 'consumers, ' then milked for the benefit of the corporation, or its apparatchiks; politicians who exempt themselves from legislation, civil servants hiring quango consultants, like corporate executives handing themselves bonuses. Blair's legacy is that Thatcherism is now accepted as the fabric of British life. To the apparatchiks, concerned with survival, self-aggrandisement, and self-protection, society exists only as far as it facilitates those aims. Nothing is free, and everything has its price. Colin Challen MP: It has been customary to pronounce his betrayal of socialism six ...

135. The Westminster Whistleblowers, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... what was afoot, knew it was illegal but did nothing. Among the Westminster council's senior staff there was not one person willing to tell Porter to 'Fuck off' and march straight out to the newspapers to blow the whistle, or even to go to their union or professional association and begin proceedings against their loopy, tyrannical boss. The Thatcher/Blair duo's greatest achievement was getting home-ownership in Britain up to around 70%. There's nothing like having to worry about mortgage payments to reduce the uppityness of the average British citizen. Last | Contents | Next ...

136. Lobbying [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... leading scientists (the Royal Society) challenged the US oil company ExxonMobil to stop funding groups that attempt to undermine its scientific consensus (The Guardian 20 September 2006). As do those wishing to represent 'big government', e.g . French presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy pitching those on unemployment benefit against wage-earners, a throwback to Thatcherism ( 'benefit scroungers') and Reaganism in US. See also Le Monde Diplomatique as quoted in The Guardian 2 May 2007. There was a fascinating article about a Ministry of Defence report envisaging the 'future strategic context' likely to face Britain's armed forces in 30 years time. This included a reference to 'the middle classes becoming revolutionary ...

... distraction was provided with the revelations of a rival group of traitors (from Oxford s rival university) namely the Cambridge Spies , which led the hounds on the hunt for fourth and fifth men working for Moscow, and away from those now working, in effect, for Washington. By 1979, Andrew Boyle s The Climate of Treason presented Thatcher with a gift by blowing Anthony Blunt s cover, and heaping further obloquy on Keynes former alma mater. When the Empire was finally wound up in the sixties, the UK had effectively ceased to have any independent foreign policy. The delusion of imperial grandeur that had inspired the ruling elite for half a century culminated in a state of ...

GKY's aims But who was he trying to impress? The 'correspondents' themselves, the party leaders or both? Or the 'anti-Thatcher' element in the party? He claimed that pro-Heath elements wanted to stage a comeback through the constituencies. GKY did not want people to join the National Front (NF). He didn't like the NF (contrary to what was thought by Searchlight and the BBC). It may have been one of his aims to ...

139. Plundering the Public Sector (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... Constable, 2006, 9.99, p/b When the Blair faction took office in 1997 as 'New Labour' we knew that they were going to be pro-American, pro-NATO, pro-business, anti-union and media conscious. What we did not know then was just how completely they had internalised the Thatcher ethos, how hostile they were going to be the public sector and, as a result, what a complete bunch of schmucks they were going to be when it came to the state's dealings with business. Once upon a time the Labour Party wanted office to enable it use the state's assets for (delete according to your view of ...

... have captured all the levers of power. It is a picture that he presents in some detail, and with consequences (what he calls social 'degradation') that to me seem all too convincing. The problem is he doesn't give precise dates for this supposed event. One is left to suppose that it all revolves around the 'rise of Thatcher' - a formula he rightly refuses. The historical perspective he brings to bear down-plays the decisive significance of the 1980s. It all looks, in retrospect, as if it were foreshadowed by the very form that capitalism took in Britain from the seventeenth century, with money in the driving seat from the beginning. Neither does ...
