... War revisionist historians has been their failure to take enough account of the UK's role in the first fifteen years of the Cold War when, with its empire and global armed forces, the UK amounted to a good deal more than it does now. But has the revival of the City of London, fueled by North Sea oil and the Thatcher period of high real interest rates, really seen a revival of British imperialism? I think this is over-stating it somewhat. While it is true that, with the US, Britain is largely responsible for the creation of post-war economic order, Curtis overstates its current significance. It is true that the UK is one ...

212. Back to the future: the 1970s reconsidered [Lobster #34 (Winter 1998)]
... , and like others of that ilk, I am looking for a way out of the present farce-cum-nightmare of a Labour Party lead by a tiny group of not very bright Thatcherites.(1 ) To understand where we are now, we have to go back to the 1970s. For the 1970s led to Mrs. Thatcher, which led to the progressive collapse of Labour as a radical, reforming party.(2 ) Mrs. Thatcher claimed legitimacy from the events of the 1970s; and the Blair faction have, in turn, accepted as legitimate much of what was done in her name. The Tory and Labour Thatcherites see the 1970s as a disaster ...

... and most expensive privately-funded political dirty tricks campaign in recent British history. The astonishing 15-year campaign waged against Owen Oyston by Michael Murrin, the owner of a fish and chip shop in the village of Longridge, Lancs, was backed by help and cash payments raised by two former government ministers and a millionaire friend of Margaret Thatcher. The former Tory ministers are Sir Robert Atkins and Lord Blaker. Their target was the Labour Party's biggest private contributor in the days of Neil Kinnock's leadership. Sir Robert Atkins was once John Major's best friend in the Commons. He was the MP for South Ribble from 1983 to 1996 and a minister at the Department of Trade and ...

... Chancellor of the Exchequer John Major. Titled 'The Man Next Door to No. 10', it carries the subtitle: 'Tipped as a future Tory leader'. The piece is interesting for two reasons. One is precisely this 'tip' at a time when most of the British electorate had little idea who John Major was and Mrs. Thatcher showed no signs of quitting. The second is the author of this piece, David Moller. The CIA's links to the American Reader's Digest during the cold war are well known now; in the UK one of the main people involved in the early years of Common Cause, Peter Crane, was also a member of the board of ...

... important things, after all - stayed on track. The British security and intelligence services had long since stopped worrying about the Labour Party. The Left in the Parliamentary Labour Party had lost interest in the subject, and though Neil Kinnock had shown a flicker of interest in the Peter Wright allegations, he had run for cover when Mrs. Thatcher challenged his patriotism. His successor, John Smith, was a life-long friend of the SIS officer, now Baroness Ramsay, and Donald Dewar, I am informed, had a similar relationship with former MI5 D-G Stella Rimington.(1 ) The key people in the Blair faction are all securely integrated into the Anglo ...

... and with this book you will have the evidence to back-up your prejudices. Here, with some subheads, are the bits I text-marked on my way through it. St. Margaret of Grantham 'In many ways policy on defence procurement, even in the mid-1980s, rested at the epicentre of the contradictions inherent in Thatcherism -- between its emphasis on the free market on the one hand and a strong State on the other. ' p. 53 'Thatcherism's emphasis on strong defence and the promotion of national economic and security interests has led, if anything, to an intensification of the cosy relationship between the MOD and the defence industry.

... Soviet intelligence officer Penkofsky about the actual accuracy of Soviet missiles did appear to play a major role in the outcome of the crisis.(7 ) The second was the role of Oleg Gordievsky in explaining Soviet policy and thinking just at the point when the Soviet Union was cracking up, thus smoothing to way for the Gorbachev relationship first with Thatcher and then with the Americans. 'Decisive' - maybe not; but not insignificant. The cry that intelligence services are useless is a variation on the more specific cries in the last twenty-five years that the CIA's predictions were useless; and these cries have often been fuelled by domestic U.S . politics. Think of the ...

... central concepts such as 'national security' have been used to meet a variety of perceived threats. En route she discusses intelligently, if not originally, the major encounters between the secret state and its opponents and/or victims. Because there is so much information in this period, inevitably the most interesting and most detailed section is on the Thatcher years. There are no great revelations here, but there are some incidents I had forgotten about (and some I'd never heard of); and since I can't think of another single volume on the OSA in print, let alone from a radical perspective, this is a welcome little (120 pages of text) volume. But ...

... , as well as endless comics which peddled this theme. Today's obsession with the SAS continues the idea that conflicts are resolved, wars won, by little groups of specialists and not by military and industrial power (neither of which Britain has any more). Newsinger's thesis about the psycho-political uses to which the SAS was put under Thatcher, is undoubtedly correct, it's just that he has underplayed the extent to which it was built on an older theme in our society. That quibble aside, this is excellent. Last | Contents | Next ...

' Everything in that paragraph is wrong, down to the spelling of General Galtieri. Sinking the Belgrano was popular with the majority of the Brits who were deep into a nostalgic imperial relapse at the time; Mrs Thatcher won the 1983 election at a canter; and the British government did not invite Galtieri to send in his troops. World in Review is also dotted with unsubstantiated allegations.
