21. Is there a ¸political class'? (Summer 2011) [Lobster #61 Summer 2011) (free)] [Free Issue]
... (North-South: a programme for survival) on politics in the UK. I thought I remembered this quite well; but had forgotten what my student's research showed, which was the public reception of this document – it was massively favourable and stimulated real interest and activity throughout 'Big Society'. Yet it was shelved, indeed marginalised by Mrs Thatcher, who, along with President Reagan, successfully pushed the advanced industrial states to take the free market rather than the Keynesian approach to global development advocated by Brandt. The new line, the foundation of what later became known as the Washington Consensus, was announced at the 1981 Cancun summit. Reading this and noting the very considerable support ...

... it no longer seems as important. Other people are doing this, which they weren't in the mid 1980s. (I just googled 'MI5' and got 2.8 million hits.) Secondly, when Lobster began in 1983 I had just joined the Labour Party, and the events of the 1960s and 70s, which led to the disaster of Thatcher, were still fresh in the collective party memory. The pursuit of the covert state operations against Labour governments, the Labour Party and wider left seemed politically relevant. My interest in MI5 was in MI5 qua enemy of the left. But as the wider left disintegrated in the UK after the fall of the Soviet bloc, and the ...

... the Deutsches Verteidigungs Dienst (DVD), which appears to have been behind just about every instance of skulduggery in modern history. But the DVD is so secret that there isn't any actual evidence of its existence. The DVD did not originate in Shrimpton's mind. As far as I can tell, it originated in the mind of self-styled former Thatcher advisor, the late Christopher Story, who also (along with one time Joint Intelligence Committee chairman Percy Cradock) believed that the fall of Communism was a hoax perpetrated by the KGB in order to lull the West into a false sense of security.3 6 Story was encouraged in this belief by the KGB defector, Anatoly Golitsyn,37 who ...

25. That option no longer exists (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... adopted by the Conservatives of 'controlling the money supply' (they couldn't even define it), was simply a light disguise (enough to con the media) for creating a recession – which they did. Recessions reduce inflation. (Creating more poor people, you reduce demand in the economy, which inhibits price increases.) Like Mrs Thatcher, Peter Jay had been persuaded that there was no alternative. It is not difficult to understand why: in 1976 no-one had ever seen 'Keynesian' policies deal with inflation at 25%. But inflation was coming down when Callaghan made his speech and was falling when Mrs Thatcher won the election in 1979. There's an essay to be ...

26. Deception in High Places by Nicholas Gilby (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... Deception in High Places a history of bribery in Britain's arms trade Nicholas Gilby London: Pluto Press, 2015, p/b, £14.00 This is very good: clearly written, massively documented1 and carefully done. Mark Thatcher, for example, some of whose wealth is widely believed to come from BAE's 1985 Al Yamamah deal with the Saudis, isn't mentioned. What might be sayable on the Net is not sayable in print.2 What can be safely said is impressive enough. I was surprised by how much could be found out given a tenacious researcher and a couple of dead participants in the trade who left revealing documents.3 Bribery exists because, where weapons are concerned, in ...

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 ...

... of the British Secret State, over a thousand names and brief cvs of publicly identified or identifiable secret state employees.1 5 In 1989, publishing such a list seemed worth the (theoretical) risk of prosecution. Today it wouldn't. What has changed? Then it seemed worthwhile to stick two fingers up to the British state, headed by Margaret Thatcher, by revealing (minor) state secrets. Today we have Cameron and Clegg, imitations of Tony Blair, Thatcher's successor, who hardly matter. Then, influenced by research on the 'Wilson plots', the secret state seemed important and powerful. These days it doesn't seem so significant. Would the average MP today be more afraid ...

30. The Establishment by Owen Jones (Book Review) (Winter 2014) [Lobster #68 (Winter 2014) (free)] [Free Issue]
... . For someone who apparently spent two years on postgraduate study of US history, Jones is weak on tracing links with UK in matters of intelligence and Atlanticism more broadly. He mentions, for example, Anthony Crosland, but not his CIA-funded Congress for Cultural Freedom spell. He mentions the Heritage Foundation, but not its documented involvement in the Thatcher era 'think-tanks'. There's not a word on the British American Project and other well- documented Atlanticist networks. Jones refers to personnel at Policy Exchange, but not its current director, Dean Godson, a former member of the Reagan administration, whose brother and father have also been key figures in US-UK relations. He also steers clear ...
