141. Listen, Marxist [Lobster #40 (Winter 2000/1)]
... the rootedness in workplace or community; and without the need for any mass movement or even aspiration for change, other than the pesky libel law. LM's agenda was clear enough to those tracking them over the years: 'modernism' must be reclaimed from the reactionary forces of the anti-technology left that was emerging from the period of the Thatcher Junta. On the streets of Britain the left was reforming. From the Battle of the Beanfield in 1983 to Twyford Down, the heroic fight against the Criminal Justice Bill and the Reclaim the Streets, to the alliance with the Liverpool Dockers to the more recent J-18, Seattle, Washington and Prague protests, a nascent red ...

142. SISies: MI6 & A Life: A. J. Ayer (Book reviews) [Lobster #40 (Winter 2000/1)]
... Rees was suspected of being a Soviet mole himself after attempting to persuade Dick White that Blunt was one in 1951. Ayer, who stayed close to Rees after he was later dropped both socially and professionally, was also probably keeping an eye for him for MI6. Rees only knew for certain that Blunt had been a Soviet agent when Margaret Thatcher confirmed it in the Commons. Ayer had known it since at last 1963. He never told Rees. Before the war Ayer had not only been a radical philosopher, but was also attracted to radical left politics. He had nearly joined the Communist Party at the request of Philip Toynbee, but backed-off on the grounds that ...

... of Europe and Australasia: and that inflation was the rationale for the revival of pre-WW2 economic ideas about the centrality of the money supply - so-called monetarism - which swept the right into power in much of Europe, America and Australasia. It is arguable that without the oil price hike in 1974 we would not have had Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and their subsequent effects on the world. An e-mail to the Observer journalist who conducted the interview with Yamani went unanswered but I had an idea: Yamani's talk of a meeting in Sweden in 1973 rang a bell with me: was there not a Bilderberg meeting in Sweden around then? A quick search on ...

144. A political journey [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... widely recognised to be the flip-side of right-wing economic revolutionism and New Labour cannot and should not be blamed unless it fails to do something about it all over the next decade. The Tory Party would have to reject not the free market side (which Gordon Brown has absorbed) but the a-social side of the Thatcher Revolution to become electable - and its activists will not allow this to happen. From this point of view, Europe is a sideshow. Clearly, Tory free-thinkers are frustrated as each and every populist movement of revolt - countryside alliance, hunters, hauliers, euro-sceptics - has given up on the Party, rejected it ...

145. Managing the World Economy (Book review) [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... generally accepted pictures of what went wrong economically in the 70s, both globally and nationally. If monetarism is inadequate as an economic theory, then any historical explanation dependent on it is also suspect. Blairism, so heavily dependent on various conventional wisdoms about the history of the 1970s, may turn out to be simply a headless chicken version of Thatcherism: the chicken is still running round the farmyard when the conditions which led to its decapitation have long since ceased to obtain. This leaves us to decide whether British economic policy in the 70s and 80s was a series of miscalculations, based as much on ignorance as prejudice and dogma, or a deliberate surrender to conservative bankers' values ...

... Peck (or Nadir) was also a threat to this security/intelligence interest. The financial problems of the group would have been a matter of some concern to sections of the British government, and particularly to MI6, the department charged with protecting Britain's foreign interests. Target Heseltine?Throughout 1990, the then British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, was fighting for her political life. Dissatisfaction with the Poll Tax, which she had pushed through against the advice of many in her own Cabinet, had lead to riots in London. As the storm clouds gathered around Polly Peck, they also gathered around the Thatcher premiership. The emerging front-runner to replace her as leader ...

... . It does not seem to have occurred to Kinnock and co. that every phone within a mile of Wright and his legal team was tapped of course, and the NSA had their resources on the case. The information about the call from Kinnock's office was duly passed - presumably from the NSA via GCHQ - to the Tories. Mrs Thatcher then stood up in the Commons and denounced Kinnock for talking to a traitor. It was one of those moments when a little more wit or bottle might changed things. Kinnock and his team flunked it He should have laughed at her - but he didn't. He should have asked her how she knew the content of the phone call ...

... had been an important Information Research Department conduit). Much more important is what they do reveal about how contemporary Britain is ruled; and the word ruled is used very deliberately. In the period covered by these diaries, Wyatt was Rupert Murdoch's fixer in London and, in particular, acted as his go-between, first with Margaret Thatcher, and later with John Major. This material is extremely interesting, providing, among other things, an insider's account of Murdoch's embrace of Tony Blair and New Labour. In a country with a more robust democratic tradition what Wyatt reveals would be a scandal, in Britain we have become so used to governments courting Murdoch that it hardly ...

He has written a rather interesting, occasionally amusing and unconsciously revealing memoir. There is an account of the City, in which he worked in the late 1950s and 60s when it was a gentleman's club, for the most part: a leisurely way to make a lot of money in between lunches; and again, after ...
