... TUC that its members would not disrupt the economy. This has no legal force and was duly ignored.( [2 ] ) From 1968 through to 1984 UK industrial stoppages - almost all low level and localised - ran at a high level, climaxing with Arthur Scargill and the 1984-1985 NUM strike, the defeat of which allowed Thatcher to pursue deliberate de-indust-rialisation. Following this the figures for days lost through industrial stoppages declined to almost nothing. Adopting Donovan would have avoided much of this and would never have given Thatcher the credibility that she appeared to have (to many) on the issue of industrial disputes. Why did Callaghan do this? There ...

... this activist who also explained to me why the Poll Tax was such a great electoral asset for the Tories in the 1980s. Some of the people who were most likely to vote Labour the less well off simply disappeared from the electoral register to avoid payment. No-one's quite sure how many voters disappeared in this way, but Baroness Thatcher herself has been quoted as saying that the Poll Tax helped win the ropey-looking 1992 election for the Conservative party. She put the number of disappearing pro-Kinnock voters at 'about one million'. ( [10] ) More than six million UK voters (15.5 per cent) are believed to have voted by ...

... interest rates squarely at the centre of this achievement. It has given us the 'economic stability' of which he and Brown have made so much in the past 7 years. As for 'economic stability', it depends where you look. Since 1997 house prices have tripled and private debt topped a trillion pounds in July. (5 ) Thatcherism continued Brown-Balls have simply continued the economic policies of the Thatcher government. Like them they have no exchange rate policy: get inflation under control, they believe, and everything else will follow. Indeed, Brown has warned of the perils of an exchange rate policy. On 10 June 1999 he said that while he understood the ...

... . It is a stunning expos of the strategy and tactics of right wing elements in the British state and their business allies, in their quest to fundamentally transform the UK political landscape. This epic battle was the culmination of a long series of anti-trade union and anti-Labour actions, planned and executed by Nicholas Ridley and Margaret Thatcher. Their ambitious purpose was to weaken, or preferably confine to history, socialist or social democratic values of solidarity and collective action. They were intent upon the permanent establishment of a new market-driven, neo-liberal economic order based upon Thatcherite beliefs in individualism and the unquestioned merits of private and corporate capital enterprise. An important ...

155. Our leader [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... Government. Did he mean this? Surely the reverse was true. Jenkins, Ashdown and the Lib-Dems were strung along for a couple of years with promises of involvement, electoral reform, none of which came to fruition. etc. At the other end of the spectrum Blair was anxious to be seen to take advice from Margaret Thatcher in the early years of his premiership. No such involvement was offered to previous senior Labour Party figures. The point is tellingly made that Blair is very much a successor to Thatcher. In the field of personal beliefs a convincing case is made by Seldon for Blair being a moral individual. His relationship with God, though, is ...

... it, rather like with Nazism, though the Straussians appeal to 'Nature' a lot. (But then so did the Nazis.) Straussism is also explicitly anti-democratic, and keen on 'leadership'. (Some Straussians have problems with women leaders. Norton points out how unusual Carnes Lord is among American conservatives in not admiring Margaret Thatcher. 'On the contrary, [she] is castigated for being too harsh, too demanding; for humiliating men. ') Again, some of this sounds almost fascist. (Almost?) For European liberals, aware of their own fascist histories, this will make alarming and perhaps surprising reading. It makes sense, of course ...
