251. Nobody told us we could do this [Lobster #64 (Winter 2012) (free)] [Free Article]
... a generally centre right, suburban outlook. Clegg defeated his closest rival Chris Huhne by a tiny margin, with a significant number of pro-Huhne votes being discounted.7 In his book Rob Wilson MP points out that Clegg had – apparently – been a member of the Conservative Association at Cambridge University, and that he later worked for Thatcher cabinet member Sir Leon Brittain when Brittain was an EU Commissioner. It was clear, then, that Clegg might be more inclined than his predecessors to talk to the Conservatives. With only a small amount of hindsight, and recognising the curious subplot that led to the demise of Kennedy, Campbell (and Huhne) in quick succession, ...

... The view from the bridge Robin Ramsay The right madness I was flipping through Richard Cockett's Thinking the Unthinkable (Fontana, 1995) about the influence of the 'think tanks' on the Thatcher revolution, and noticed a quote from a 1968 Fabian pamphlet on the then politically insignificant 'New Right' – essentially the Institute for Economic Affairs – and read this short statement of their central belief. The IEA and its ilk sought: 'perfect competition in which rational consumers indicate their preferences to profit-seeking producers by means of prices under conditions of perfect information. ' (p . 157) There are two 'perfects' and a 'rational' in that sentence. I have never met a ...

253. Gladio: NATO's dagger at the Heart of Europe (Book review) (Winter 2012) [Lobster #64 (Winter 2012) (free)] [Free Article]
... , it was Gladio's triumph. Heath was destroyed by the libels revolving around his sexuality and his own loftiness, rooted in insecurity, which rendered him easy prey to ruthless secret service gossip mongers. ' (p . 248) Which is nonsense. The stories about Heath's sexuality had no coverage and almost no impact. Heath was defeated by Thatcher because he lost the two elections of 1974 and caused the great inflation of the period. He might have he got away with what Mrs Thatcher and the late Sir Rhodes Boyson described as his 'monetary incontinence' but losing the elections as well – of course he would be challenged. Sometimes politics is just politics. Wilson's surprise resignation in ...

... the NUM, then the head of its F2 branch, Stella Rimington, wrote later: 'The 1984 miners' strike was supported by a very large number of members of the National Union of Mineworkers, but it was directed by a triumvirate who had declared that they were using the strike to try to bring down the elected government of Margaret Thatcher and it was actively supported by the Communist party. What was it legitimate for us to do about that? We quickly decided that the 2 How did MI5 know about the Soviet funds to the CPGB?

... ' – irritates serious historians; but in the case of the 1970s it does make a a kind of sense, the decade being bookended in Britain by Conservative Party election victories in 1970 and 1979, heralding a return to the market: the half-hearted version under Heath, 'Selsdon man', and then the real thing with Mrs Thatcher. As the delusions of the free marketeers crumble, so the history of the years in which these notions were dominant will be re-examined. And as the mainstream media's view of the 1980s and 90s in Britain morphs from free market triumph to profligate idiocy, so their view of what preceded them will change: the 1970s are ...

... not persuaded of the decline of the 'Soviet threat'. (This was part of the wider debate about the reality of détente between NATO and the Soviet bloc.) Crozier and his chums certainly did not think MI5 was on the ball where the perceived menace from the Soviets and the left was concerned; and they got access to Mrs Thatcher when she was leader of the Opposition after 1975. On p. 670 Andrew tells us that when William Whitelaw became Home Secretary in the first Thatcher administration, 'he told [DG of MI5 Howard Smith] that he wished to be sufficiently well briefed to be able to counter "some of the rather extreme advice" Mrs Thatcher had ...

... briefly in the Commons and then in the Lords, she was regularly back among the liberal East Coast fraternity. But readers looking for insight into the US/UK relationship from someone so well positioned will be disappointed, as they will be in seeking any sharp observations on British politics. Those who remember the Callaghan government and the rise of Thatcher may recall Williams and other Labour right-wing ministers vociferously rushing to the defence of one of their number, Reg Prentice, faced with deselection. Prentice subsequently switched parties – probably the highest ranking Labour figure ever to defect to the Tories – but he doesn't rate a mention in these memoirs. There are lots of similar gaps. ...
