When I used some of that for the Well, how did we get here? essay, I reread this section for the first time in years and it struck me as rather interesting that the last prime minister who had tried to challenge the City was Thatcher, and she lost. Thatcher versus the City of London Robin Ramsay The older I get the more I am struck by the economic illiteracy of our politicians.

... .51 Thus, when in 1977, with the IMF stamp of approval on the economy and the imminent prospect of the pound being a petrocurrency, the international value of the pound began to rise sharply, the Treasury tried to persuade the Labour government to scrap exchange controls. This Labour refused to do; but they were abolished by the Thatcher government in 1980. However, despite a rush of capital out of the UK, the value of the pound continued to rise, making British exports uncompetitive and eventually destroying nearly a quarter of British manufacturing industry. Why did this theory fail (assuming it would have worked)? It ran into another theory held by the Thatcher government ...

Instead, the reader is dropped straight into a narrative in which she deplores how 'out of touch' Labour were with 'ordinary people' 33 Winter 2010 in the 80s (which may have been true at that point), without demonstrating that Thatcher and the Tory right were ever more 'in touch' or commanded a consensus of views (they didn't), or that Thatcher would have won so easily without the SDP. Although Mattinson's admiration of Kinnock is clearly genuine, as well as omitting the very basic electoral arithmetic that ultimately explains his failure to win in 1992, she also ...

As the decade progressed, the scene develops; Airey Neave and Thatcher, the Hilda Murrell killing, Stalker, and the field widens on to hacking and what we might now call cyber-warfare, microwave and low frequency sonic weapons, and later, ECHELON, the Unification Church, MK-Ultra.

Mid-Seventies Britain was a miserable place, characterised by economic decline, industrial unrest and hyperinflation. Showaddywaddy and The Wombles dominated the charts and the smell of fascism (and Thatcherism) polluted the air. Trapped in a traumatic emotional triangle, Ramsay wasn't having much fun either. However, this era of unmitigated gloom produced his Eureka! moment, occurring in the unlikely environs of Hull University library "This conspiracy theory document on the Gemstone Files (files which contained information on the Kennedy assassination) surfaced in Hull ...

As to how this all came about, they write at length about the failure to set up a sovereign wealth fund to invest the income from North Sea Oil and remind us (p . 189) of the casual spite of the Thatcher years by quoting Nigel Lawson's 1984 Mansion House speech in which he admitted that most jobs created in the future in the UK would be 'no tech'. (Up until then the line had been that 'low tech' employment was a temporary tactical manoeuvre to recover competitiveness in the global economy.) This is all fine; but amidst ...
