191. 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 ...

192. 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 ...

193. Euro-bound? Or: the same river twice [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... world as the UK's, exporting and importing as much as this country does, the single most important decision is on the exchange rate. If the pound is too high, British export prices are too high to compete abroad. We are now into the third year of the current period of living with a pound valued too highly. Like Thatcher and her Chancellor of the Exchequer, Geoffrey Howe, in 1979-81, Labour has no exchange rate policy. Indeed, Gordon Brown warns of the perils of having one. On 10 June 1999 Brown said that while he understood the concerns of exporters: 'Anyone who thinks that dropping the inflation target to replace it with an exchange ...

194. Where's Ware? [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... Simon Matthews Local government -- and local politicians -- generally get a bad press, some of it deserved, some not. British law tends to support this. A number of cases have made it extremely difficult for councils to sue for libel and/or damage to their reputation(s ). (6 ) In the early Thatcher years Tory Party central office set up a section to trawl for, collate and occasionally invent, local government (i .e . anti-Labour) 'stories' that were then fed to the media, giving birth to the 'loony left'.(7 ) Through the '80s and '90s, as TV programmes such as Beadle's About ...

... ) In the run up to the Gulf conflict, extensive use was made of the media to demonise Saddam Hussein as either a new Hitler, or a madman; or, ideally, a combination of both. (It is interesting to note that before transforming Saddam into a 'bad guy', the same media had favourably compared him to Thatcher during the 1980s when he was privatising Iraq's economy. [p .60]) At the same time the collapse of Communism had the Western elites searching around for a new enemy. 'Arabs' and 'Islamic fundamentalists' were deemed to fit the bill, and Saddam was held up as the prime example of the worst of all that ...

196. Lobster Issue 39: Contents [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... David: no room in this one. The appearance of Stephen Dorril's massive and impressive book on SIS -- reviewed below - set me thinking about the direction Lobster has taken. When Lobster began in 1983 there seemed every point in collecting and publishing every available scrap of information on the British security and intelligence services: we had Reagan and Thatcher, a resurgent British imperialism on the coat-tails of America, and a repressive, authoritarian regime at home. Publicising what the British state most wanted kept in the cupboard seemed a good idea. But these days, dozens of books about our 'secret services' later, the 'Secret' Intelligence Service flaunting its bureaucratic muscle in that ...

In '75 he was living in Switzerland and listed his occupation as 'tax exile'. His current address is Tonbridge, Kent (he stopped being a 'tax exile' during the Thatcher years) and is 'active in personal development and social change'. Currently a Senior Partner of Performance Consultants Ltd., he has written a number of books including The Winning Mind (1987), Need, Greed or Freedom (1997) and Mind Games (1998). What we have here is a chain linking Tesla, ...

... life (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1997). Although Morgan's discussion of the 1974-77 period is entirely inadequate - evasive essentially - there is this little snippet on p. 610. [No 2 at the Home Office and liaison with MI5] Robert Armstrong, after guidance from the Prime Minister (Callaghan), saw Mrs Thatcher at Scotney Castle and then in Chelsea on 9 and 11 August 1977. On these occasions, she expressed 'misgivings' about Harold Wilson's 'reliability' although her evidence was wholly anecdotal, based on such matters as Wilson's visits to Russia thirty years earlier, and his employment of figures such as Geoffrey Goodman (on whom MI5 had a file ...

... view, knowledge of Blunt's activities by either Wilson or the public would have fueled any existing movement towards reform of the security services. Blunt was a cousin of the Queen Mother, after all. Before he died, Andrew Boyle, whose book finally exposing Blunt came soon after her election in 1979, expressed to me his opinion that Margaret Thatcher had withdrawn Blunt's immunity from publicity rather than let him successfully sue Boyle for libel, only to have the truth emerge when Blunt died of old age deeper into her administration. Thatcher had a standing order that there were to be no simmering security scandals during her term of office, no compromised ministers or senior civil servants. This was ...

... for the Lockerbie bombing; and the subsequent US sanctions. There are all acts by the US; but all carried out by Republican governments. Is it possible that on both sides of the Atlantic the professional diplomats and the rational core of the intelligence community are slowly throwing off some of the vile nonsense perpetrated in the Reagan-Bush-Thatcher years? The release of various official US documents which could easily have been withheld on national security grounds - eg on the CIA's role in Guatemala in the 1960s - suggest something like this.(2 ) The atrocities of the 1980s in Central America, for example, are becoming more visible. President Bill Clinton's apology while on a ...
