161. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... the crooked US company's collapse. After Lancing College and Peterhouse, Cambridge, Meyer spent his year with Johns Hopkins in Italy before entering the diplomatic service in 1966. After postings to Moscow and Madrid he was appointed permanent secretary to the European Community in 1978 during Roy Jenkins' presidency and then ran the Foreign Office news operation during the middle Thatcher years. John Major made him press secretary at No 10 and then Blair sent him to Washington in 1997. Diplomat and upmarket spin merchant Meyer, who appeared regularly around the studios during the recent Iraq War to press the Government's case, may appear an unlikely defender of press freedom. But not to the man who appointed him, ...

... post-invasion Iraq, will be revisionist articles and books. There will be a spate of these on the Middle East. Some will be written by 'approved' British academics and journalists. Those who read them could keep in mind a throwaway comment (1997) by Sir Percy Cradock, Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee under Prime Ministers Thatcher and Major: 'The bulk of the records of its outposts, principally JIC (Germany), JIC (Middle East) and JIC (Far East) have disappeared. ' (24 ) That they have is an unnoticed national scandal. The 'approved' will be able to concoct whatever back-history SIS chooses. (25) ...

... ". There are obvious echoes here of Blair, leading the wrong party; and, like Heath, trying to drag the party along with him. But I didn't get this to read yet another account of post-war British politics. I got it because in Lobster 39 (p . 21) I noted comments made by Mrs Thatcher to Robert Armstrong, MI5 liaison at the Home Office, in the mid 1970s on her 'misgivings' about the presence of Goodman in the Labour government. There was an MI5 file on him, she believed. Goodman's memoir provides no direct explanation of why he ended up on Maggie's paranoia-list but it gives a hint or two ...

164. Demos - fashionable ideas and the rule of the few [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... to get Demos off the ground for some time but it had been getting nowhere. Could I advise? I agreed to help and my analysis was that they were trying to raise lots of relatively small sums of money at great effort from traditional Labour networks which had no money. You have to cast your mind back to a time when Thatcherism was culturally triumphant. The wealthy middle classes, let alone the rich, were little interested in the 'men in brown suits' who appeared thoroughly unelectable and those that were wealthy were only going to 'invest' in sure winners. I knew of only three significant sources of funds at that time from traditional networks (though there may have ...

165. Historical Notes [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... -tunity for the Blair administration to demonstrate this Anglo-American solidarity, revealing a conviction that it was central to the defence of Britain's national interest. More than this, Blair's stance was a sign that Atlanticism in the UK was now bipartisan. After 1979 the two major political parties had gone separate ways on the special relationship: under Thatcher the Tories had drawn closer to the USA than they had been under Heath; while Labour under Foot and Kinnock had adopted a stance critical of the USA and its role in the world (though the process of rapprochement started under Kinnock after the 1987 election defeat). In the Iraq crises of 1998 and 2003 there was no difference ...

') He also recalls that'...certain senior circuit judges were unofficially allocated to miners' cases for "consistency," ' a remark that casts some doubt on the concept of a fair trial.(15) David Hart, unofficial adviser to Thatcher during the Miners' Strike and generous supporter of working miners, has been said by some to have achieved literary immortality in David Peace's fictional account of the events of 1984 (16) as the 'compellingly creepy' right-wing millionaire Stephen Sweet. In the real world, right-wing millionaire Hart is currently listed as a director ...

167. A Very British Jihad (Book Review) [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... some of the loyalists; and, centrally, the career of Brian Nelson, the British Army's man directing the UDA killer gangs using intelligence from the British Army and RUC Special Branch. Larkin thinks that the 'collusion' can be traced back to the 'quiet coup' run in the UK in the 1970s which led to the election of Mrs Thatcher. This chapter, the one which he has written from other published sources, without the kind of detailed research he conducted in Northern Ireland, is the weakest bit of the book. Based in part in the analysis in Lobster 11 and Smear!, Larkin correctly identifies the anti-communist, anti-subversion alliance formed by elements ...

Both men's views were much in evidence to UK audiences over Iraq, Ledeen through the good offices of the Hollinger Group, until recently run by the Telegraph/Spectator group owner Conrad Black who was ennobled by Margaret Thatcher. Perle, who appeared repeatedly in newspapers and on radio and TV in Britain during the build-up to war, was for many years a Hollinger director. In poring over all the dissimulation over weapons of mass destruction, the death of scientist David Kelly and, most recently, who knew what over the torture and murder of ...

169. Our Friends in the North-East [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... . The existence of a working relationship between the Gaitskellites, the GMB and various Cold War era alignments and campaigns in which safe Labour seats in the North East were available for selected individuals seems likely. (6 )The contribution of the SDP in which Rodgers, Horam, Thomas and Wrigglesworth were prominent members to British society was to keep Thatcher in power after 1981 by dividing the vote against her in 1983 and 1987. The impact this had on UK manufacturing and municipal government (the core of the GMB membership) indicates that the union backed a number of personalities whose actions were completely counter productive to its ostensible objectives. The reconstruction of the Labour Party after these events and ...

... 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 ...
