... to the process. He does not repudiate New Labour, arguing instead that it was an attempt to restrain and control neo-liberalism rather than an embrace of it. New Labour's sucking-up to the super rich, according to Brown, was always intended to benefit ordinary people. To put it another way: whereas Blair had embraced Thatcherism in order to help the rich (and to help himself become seriously rich in the process), Brown claims that he embraced it to help the poor. None of which can be taken seriously. It is worth remembering Brown's positive enthusiasm for the excesses of the financial sector. As late as 20 June 2007, speaking at the ...

173. The meaning of the QinetiQ scandal [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... needed, is provided by the recent appointment of multimillionaire businessman, David Pitt-Watson, as the Labour Party's General Secretary, and the installation of Jennifer Moses, former managing director of Goldman Sachs, as a special adviser at 10 Downing Street.(1 ) She has been brought in to advise Brown on welfare reform! If the Thatcher government had appointed someone like her to such a position, Labour MPs would have been outraged. Today, barely a murmur. There were some protests about the QinetiQ scandal. Mark Serwotka of the PCS union described the affair as 'obscene'. It was condemned by various Liberal Democrat and Tory MPs, and even by the odd Labour ...

... 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 ...

175. The meaning of the 2009 Budget [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... 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 ...

... %: 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 ...

177. Churchill and Secret Service (Book review) [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... is still very much the dominant viewpoint and forms one of the cornerstones of conservative ideology in post-war Britain. The Churchill myth allowed the Conservative Party, much of which was tainted by appeasement, to confiscate the Second World War and make it their own. This process has continued down to the present day with the likes of Margaret Thatcher, who, having singularly failed to contribute to the war effort at the time, nevertheless subsequently adopted an ersatz Churchillian guise for political advantage. Martin Gilbert's massive multi-volume biography is an overlong statement of this camp's position. The interpretation of the other camp reduces Churchill in size and places him firmly in historical context. From this ...

... a surprise. Covert Action Quarterly, 1500 Massachusetts Avenue, NW #272, Washington, DC 20005, USA. A conspiracy theory boom?There does appear to be some kind of minor explosion of interest in parapolitics in the United States. And not before time. The interest in conspiracies is simply reality breaking through. The Reagan-Thatcher years saw unprecedented expansions of unregulated intelligence and military agencies, and breathtaking multi-billion rip-offs (most obviously, in the U.S ., the S and L scam; in the UK, privatisation). No one should be remotely surprised that some of the electorate -- 0.01 % maybe - are ...

... 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 ...

... doesn't really explain what exactly he means by this, but I would bet that Blair's understanding of his immediate Labour predecessors in No. 10 was shaped by the myth that their economic record was a shambles; that everything should be seen through the prism of the 'Winter of Discontent'; and that their mismanagement inevitably led to the dawn of Thatcherism and the triumph of individualism over collectivism. I don't propose here to pore over why I think Labour's 1970s economic record was nowhere near as bad as the NuLab crowd seem to accept. What is evident to me – and this whole process was repeated during the last election – is that the Labour leadership is scared shitless of defending its ...
