... : 'In grad school (1965-70) Friedman was seen as a lunatic. Friedman is Milton Friedman, the public face of monetarism in the 1970s, who became prominent in the UK after 1976, the year he won the Nobel Prize for Economics. His belief in the centrality of controlling the economy's money supply was adopted by the Tory right around Thatcher, who had rejected Keynesian notions of the state managing the economy. Previous to this, in 1972 when they were faced with rising unemployment, Edward Heath's government had pulled all the levers at the state's disposal to increase demand in the economy. Unfortunately the British bankers had already persuaded the government to change the rules governing bank lending21 and ...

It began almost immediately after the election of February, the Ulster Workers' Council general strike of May providing the major opportunity. Called to bring down the power-sharing executive, the alliance of middle-of-the-road Protestants and Social Democratic and Labour party members created by the Heath government, the strike was used by MI5 and the Army as part of the destabilisation campaign. The Ulster Workers' Council strike was ...

The major target of this campaign, and as far as we are aware the only senior politician who has been willing to talk about it, is Harold Wilson. Wilson spoke most extensively to the journalists Penrose and Courtier (Pencourt). Their book, The Pencourt File, appeared almost ...

... of the British Secret State, over a thousand names and brief cvs of publicly identified or identifiable secret state employees.1 5 In 1989, publishing such a list seemed worth the (theoretical) risk of prosecution. Today it wouldn't. What has changed? Then it seemed worthwhile to stick two fingers up to the British state, headed by Margaret Thatcher, by revealing (minor) state secrets. Today we have Cameron and Clegg, imitations of Tony Blair, Thatcher's successor, who hardly matter. Then, influenced by research on the 'Wilson plots', the secret state seemed important and powerful. These days it doesn't seem so significant. Would the average MP today be more afraid ...

145. Deception in High Places by Nicholas Gilby (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Deception in High Places a history of bribery in Britain's arms trade Nicholas Gilby London: Pluto Press, 2015, p/b, £14.00 This is very good: clearly written, massively documented1 and carefully done. Mark Thatcher, for example, some of whose wealth is widely believed to come from BAE's 1985 Al Yamamah deal with the Saudis, isn't mentioned. What might be sayable on the Net is not sayable in print.2 What can be safely said is impressive enough. I was surprised by how much could be found out given a tenacious researcher and a couple of dead participants in the trade who left revealing documents.3 Bribery exists because, where weapons are concerned, in ...

... member of staff' were the villains of the piece, and that the allegations were mostly based on fantasy. This is misleading. What is true is that MI5 has never admitted to any wrongdoing during the Wilson premierships and that it was officially cleared of plotting in Parliamentary statements made by two Prime Ministers- James Callaghan in 1977 and Margaret Thatcher in 1987. But in fact the accusations, first made by Wilson himself and published in The Pencourt File, (1) nearly ten years before the appearance of Spycatcher, (2) caused considerable private turmoil in MI5; and they were based on fact not on imagination. What browsers of the MI5 website do not learn is ...

148. The Anglo-Rhodesian Society [Lobster #22 (Nov 1991)]
... came across the Anglo-Rhodesian Society, and discovered that, as usual with the British right, there was no substantial account of it. Here is the result of an initial trawl. Future historians of the Conservative Party may discover that upon its heart in the 1960s "Rhodesia" was indelibly graven.(1) With the arrival of Mrs Thatcher in 1975 came "the New Right", with about as much claim to be called "new" as had the "New Left' a decade earlier. Although the Tory right has a history with the same kinds of continuities and discontinuities as the Labour left, it lacks a detailed historical record like there is of the Labour ...

... The view from the bridge Robin Ramsay The right madness I was flipping through Richard Cockett's Thinking the Unthinkable (Fontana, 1995) about the influence of the 'think tanks' on the Thatcher revolution, and noticed a quote from a 1968 Fabian pamphlet on the then politically insignificant 'New Right' essentially the Institute for Economic Affairs and read this short statement of their central belief. The IEA and its ilk sought: 'perfect competition in which rational consumers indicate their preferences to profit-seeking producers by means of prices under conditions of perfect information. (p. 157) There are two 'perfects' and a 'rational' in that sentence. I have never met a 'perfect' where human ...

... the producer 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 'Inner Force ...
