I supported the strike until the 1974 so-called 'Ridley plan' (2) was revived in the media. This made it clear that the miners had been pushed into a strike for which the Thatcher wing of the Tory Party and the state had been preparing for a decade Miners' Strike 2, the Showdown with the Left and thus the miners were doomed. On page 245 of this book the authors write: 'the Prime Minister thought she was on a crusade against an Antichrist. After vanquishing the Argentineans she was going to vanquish ...

23. Maggie, Maggie, Maggie! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... ) Summer 2008 Last| Contents| Next Issue 55 Maggie, Maggie, Maggie! Next year will be the 30th anniversary of Mrs Thatcher's first election victory and the onset of the demented world as we know it in this country. 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 ...

... its origins in 1919 through to its recent demise- about half of the book's 194 pages. The other half is a digest of research into the British right-wing which Hughes, like a few others on the British Left began in the mid 1980s; and a rather perfunctory account of the covert operations against the Wilson government and the rise of Thatcherism. The Right is another country Left pioneers like Mike Hughes into the strange country of the British Right were wrestling with the discovery that ideas we had all assumed to be dead and buried had risen up to assault us. And when they looked for published information on the antecedents of this group of people and organisations, they found almost ...

In Britain, the focus has always been on Murdoch's close relationship first with Thatcher and then with Blair and Brown. What McKnight brings out is the extent to which it is the United States that is the real object of Murdoch's affection. While he was very close to Thatcher, it was Reagan and Reaganism that 'were the most important influences on Rupert Murdoch's political world view'. This is an important corrective. ...

27. New Labour against manufacturing (Winter 2014) [Lobster #68 (Winter 2014) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Labour took office Brown and Blair had promised to toe the conservative line on economic policy: no income tax rises, no increased public spending, no attempts to use government to direct the economy; and no reacquisition of the privatised state assets, the roughly £100 billion of taxation- created assets flogged-off for around £50 billion during the Thatcher years. All talk of justice, fairness and redistribution had been stripped from the vocabulary. They had learned the central mantra of neo-liberalism: private good, public bad. Taking office in 1997, there was only one major tool left in the hands of new Chancellor Gordon Brown, but it was the critical one, the control of ...

... from the TUC that its members would not disrupt the economy. This has no legal force and was duly ignored.( [2]) From 1968 through to 1984 UK industrial stoppages- almost all low level and localised- ran at a high level, climaxing with Arthur Scargill and the 1984-1985 NUM strike, the defeat of which allowed Thatcher to pursue deliberate de-indust-rialisation. Following this the figures for days lost through industrial stoppages declined to almost nothing. Adopting Donovan would have avoided much of this and would never have given Thatcher the credibility that she appeared to have (to many) on the issue of industrial disputes. Why did Callaghan do this? There were, of course ...

... Fisk.) But Pencourt didn't pursue the 'press officer in Northern Ireland'. Up popped the late Peter Bessel, Liberal MP and CIA agent, to steer them towards Jeremy Thorpe and Norman Scott instead. The second significant snippet was the news that Jonathan Aitken had been hand-carrying messages from James Angleton, CIA's head of counter-intelligence, to Mrs Thatcher, then leader of the opposition. What these said we don't know but I think we may presume, as the programme did, that they contained some version of Angleton's suspicion that Wilson was a KGB agent. These letters must have had some weight in Thatcher's decision to take the KGB agent nonsense about Wilson to Robert Armstrong, then ...

... contradictions. Not just economic planning but Keynesian demand management was proving impossible in the face of capital's rapid internationalisation, while trade union willingness to accept stagnant or even falling living standards in the cause of high employment had obviously evaporated. So after 1979 there was indeed 'no alternative' to a reassertion of laissez faire, pursued with zeal by Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher sought to recreate the liberal synthesis of free markets, liberty and greatness which (she believed) had characterised Britain in 1851. Yet this could not be done. Economic liberalisation, if anything, accelerated industrial decline and precipitated an unsustainable credit boom, leading to a slump. Meanwhile left-wing resistance to Thatcherism, particularly at the ...
