151. Digging in the Oyston archive [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... Issue 51) Summer 2006 Last| Contents| Next Issue 51 Digging in the Oyston archive Andrew Rosthorn Tons of documents and tape recordings recovered from an old manor house in Lancashire reveal the true depths of corruption in English provincial life at the end of the twentieth century. Owen Oyston was the British Labour Party's biggest private financial contributor in the Thatcher years. The millionaire owner of radio stations and glossy magazines had bailed out both the left-wing News on Sunday newspaper and his beloved Blackpool Football Club but was largely unaware that he had been marked down as a dangerous enemy of the centralised British political system. According to the former MI5 officer David Shayler, the intelligence services file on Owen ...

... in a story about casualties or incidents.' A recent High Court case in which Teodoro Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea, unsuccessfully sued the companies behind the failed coup to overthrow him gives some insight into the murky world of mercenaries and their financial backers.(28) One well known name that keeps cropping up is that of Mark Thatcher, although, thanks to the efforts of his mother, he 'never spent a day in jail, despite investing in an aircraft that the plotters intended to use in the coup attempt. In January 2005 he pleaded guilty to breaking South Africa's anti-mercenary laws, for which he received a £300,000 fine and a four-year suspended sentence ...

... the voting affiliations of the masses remained determined by this 'us and them' syndrome, and they opted for one of two monolithic parties, a certain rough justice prevailed.2 However, since 1970 (Edward Heath 46% of the votes cast) neither Labour nor Conservatives have polled above 45% of the votes cast in a general election. Thatcher didn't get above 44%, Blair peaked at 43% and 1 This adversarial mindset even extends to the architecture of the House of Commons: two narrow rows of benches facing each other. 2 The electorate tripled in 1918 because as well as women (only over 28, at this stage) all men became eligible to vote. ...

154. Plundering the Public Sector (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... Public Sector David Craig and Richard Brooks London: 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 ...

... bugs, decoded telegrams, photographs of all entrants to the building and sources within should have alerted the authorities to impending danger. Surely the Libyan gunman would have been under strict orders to avoid at all costs any possibility of hitting a police officer with the predictable and very costly consequences for the Libyan regime and economy? And why did the Thatcher government allow the 22 employees of the embassy to leave the country without hindrance? Hints from Ministers The then Home Secretary, Leon Brittan, was so unhappy with the performance of MI5 that he threatened a drastic reorganisation. Reliable press sources believe that the Security Service retaliated by spreading rumours about Brittan's sex life, even producing anonymous fliers containing ...

... 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 ...

... common feature in all developed economies during the last forty or fifty years, but the UK experience has been more intense than in many comparable economies. In 1960 manufacturing accounted for 35 per cent of the UK GDP. It fell back from this level over the subsequent twenty years, but its share still remained over 30 per cent. The Thatcher years saw a much more rapid decline, as large parts of British industry closed down while the financial and service sectors expanded. This process slowed down, and was for a time even reversed during the Major Premiership, but by the end of the 1990s manufacturing was contributing a little over 20 per cent to the GDP. The contraction ...

St. Margaret of Grantham 'In many ways policy on defence procurement, even in the mid-1980s, rested at the epicentre of the contradictions inherent in Thatcherism-- between its emphasis on the free market on the one hand and a strong State on the other.' p. 53 'Thatcherism's emphasis on strong defence and the promotion of national economic and security interests has led, if anything, to an intensification of the cosy relationship between the MOD and the defence industry.' pp. ...

... %: if Zinoviev was meant to reduce the Labour vote, it was a total failure. Labour's vote was up on 1923 in almost every seat it contested, even in the ones it lost. As in that other mythical election, 1979, the one where millions of former Labour voters were so disgusted with the Left they switched to Thatcher, somehow leaving Labour's national vote higher than in 1974, the Tory increase was caused by ex-Liberals (30 of Labour's 40 net losses were caused by tactical voting for the Tories where the Liberals with-drew their own candidates in 1924), or by voters who had abstained in 1923 or had never voted before (the turnout was the highest ...
