... 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 ...

32. The view from the bridge [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... 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 ...

... resources hitherto channelled into coup plots went to Aims of Industry, the Economic League and other anti-union initiatives.(5 ) But the kind of government King envisaged was the kind of government we now have in place, in Britain, without a shot being fired or a tank rolling down Whitehall. To put it another way, Thatcherism may well have been the historically necessary mechanism by which post-war social democracy was destroyed in Britain and replaced by the coercive state, but it could not establish the consensus for such a state.(6 ) For that one needed a Labour Party led by right-wing renegades whose background in Stalinism would empower them to reconcile ...

As for 'economic stability', it depends where you look. Since 1997 house prices have tripled and private debt topped a trillion pounds in July. (5 ) Thatcherism continued Brown-Balls have simply continued the economic policies of the Thatcher government. Like them they have no exchange rate policy: get inflation under control, they believe, and everything else will follow. Indeed, Brown has warned of the perils of an exchange rate policy. On 10 June 1999 he said that while he understood the ...

Who removed, and why, the suitcase, which a local farmer says was full of heroin, and had a name-tag which did not correspond with any names on the passenger list? Bush tells Thatcher to cool it Even more significantly, why did George Bush ring Margaret Thatcher in mid-March 1989 to ask her to soft pedal on Lockerbie? This gem was discovered by the senior American journalist, Jack Anderson (Washington Post, 11 January 1990). Before the Prime Minister was able to brief her Secretary of State for Transport ...

... Casey and Ed Meese, Reagan's foreign affairs advisor, and sworn to secrecy. The British cabinet set up a secret sub-committee to oversee the project, with both the Home Office (MI5) and the FCO (MI6) ordered to support the illegal exports. Michael Heseltine, Geoffrey Howe, Willie Whitelaw, Francis Pym and PM Thatcher all gave the secret project government blessing. During the 1992 Matrix Churchill trial ex-Minister Alan Clark let the cat out of the bag revealing that 'the interests of the West were best served by Iran and Iraq fighting each other, and the longer the better.

... . It is a stunning expos of the strategy and tactics of right wing elements in the British state and their business allies, in their quest to fundamentally transform the UK political landscape. This epic battle was the culmination of a long series of anti-trade union and anti-Labour actions, planned and executed by Nicholas Ridley and Margaret Thatcher. Their ambitious purpose was to weaken, or preferably confine to history, socialist or social democratic values of solidarity and collective action. They were intent upon the permanent establishment of a new market-driven, neo-liberal economic order based upon Thatcherite beliefs in individualism and the unquestioned merits of private and corporate capital enterprise. An important ...

... ' – 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 ...
