... Minister have effectively ignored Rupert Murdoch'. Jon Sopel of the BBC never mentioned him in his 1995 Blair biog; in 550 pages on New Labour, The Observer's Andrew Rawnsley gave Murdoch three name checks; and John Rentoul of The Independent on Sunday managed '10 brief mentions' in his big Blair book. Was it any different with Margaret Thatcher? 'Hugo Young's much-praised book on Margaret Thatcher, One of Us, reserves one minor, passing reference to Murdoch, ' writes Oborne.

... 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 ...

204. Terror Within, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... , was not a struggle for a British republic. The book also suffers from strange lacunae in its coverage. Bloom has much to say about Irish nationalist violence in England in the 19th century, but totally ignores the IRA bombing campaigns in the 1950s and then from the 1970s until the 1990s (apart from the attempt to blow up Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet at Brighton in 1984) – even though those would presumably be sufficiently 'terroristic' to qualify for inclusion. (And if the problem is that they are conducted by Irish nationalists then why include the 19th century Fenian outrages?) Further, he fails to mention the Irish Republican Socialist Party and its associated paramilitary activities. ...

... manufacturing (and I would add agriculture and fishing), doing so is incompatible with our membership of the EU in its present form (and the EU isn't going to change) and the fetish for free trade. We are, more or less, back in the late 1970s again, before the City used the economic ignorance of Mrs Thatcher and Geoffrey Howe (and North Sea oil revenues to pay the dole and police overtime) to reinstall itself in the driver's seat. We may have no alternative but to go back and take the road towards European-style social democracy – Sweden rather than America, say – and this could only be done in the traditional manner: ...

206. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... democratic centralist cults of the 1970s and 80s looked like secular versions of the Moonies and that their claim to be the vanguard of the working class was a sick joke. What is instructive about Peter Hitchens' interview with Marshall is how clearly Hitchens saw the decline and disintegration of these Trotskyist sects as the demise of any credible left opposition to Thatcherism. Hitchens actually describes the 1990s as the first time in history that a Marcusian society without credible opposition came into existence.(2 )It was in this context that he says, quite candidly, that he decided to join the winning side. While Stuart Hall, following the collapse of the Soviet Union, decided to reconcile the ...

... the Wilson-Callaghan Government in the 1960s and 1970s. The process of withdrawal started with the independence of India and Pakistan (widely celebrated in the UK media recently on its sixtieth anniversary), was confirmed by the failure of the last imperialist fling at Suez in 1956 and reached its coda in the bloody withdrawal from Aden. Even the Thatcher-Major Conservatives restricted themselves to support for UN and US-backed intervention after that date (Iraq, 1990/1991). The withdrawal was logical. The British economy was in no state to maintain the infrastructure for a global empire and modern capitalism no longer required that it hold territory to win markets. As the Treasury has ...

United States, he was celebrated as a hero and Frank Sinatra, no less performed at a benefit in his honour.(23) The trial run for Iraq, Afghanistan and the War on Terror was, however, provided in Central America in the 1980s and early 1990s. There the United States (with the full support of the Thatcher government) engaged in two of the most brutal counter-insurgency campaigns of modern times in El Salvador and Guatemala, as well as waging an illegal covert war against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. Instead of committing ground troops, the Americans waged war through proxies, turning loose CIA-sponsored death squads to torture and kill in all ...

Supporting Thatcher While these discussions took place, Goldsmith was funding a UK political project implicitly hostile to Heath, the Centre for Policy Studies, launched in June 1974 with the endorsement of Sir Keith Joseph and Margaret Thatcher, and with the late Alfred Sherman as its first director. Heath did not return to power. In the October 1974 general election ...

No doubt books and TV programmes are being prepared. The most striking account of the first part of the Thatcher events is John Hoskyn's Just In Time: inside the Thatcher revolution (London: Aurum Press, 2000). Hoskyns was an army officer who became a businessman. He is a recognisable type: the clever alpha male, used to being in charge and intolerant of fools, who looked at Britain in the early 1970s and saw chaos ...
