41. Scott et al (Book reviews) [Lobster #31 (Jun 1996)]
... which is missing from the book. Norton-Taylor and Lloyd, two of a tiny handful of journalists to sit through the entire Scott hearings, tells us it was about business, selling kit to the Arabs. What they have omitted- perhaps because it is so obvious- is the fact that the pressure was coming as a result of the Thatcher administration's assault on the British manufacturing sector, in the 1980-83 period in particular. This was rationalised at the time by the likes of then Chancellor of the Exchequer Lawson with the line that, reduced as a consequence of North Sea oil revenues (which, he claimed, had pushed up the exchange rate; see Lobster 27 ), ...

(125) Checking this claim would take years, as between them these agencies must have distributed material to hundreds, possibly thousands of newspapers. However one fragment of substantiating evidence is available concerning one of them, Transworld. On May 19th 1976 the Daily Telegraph carried a report from Washington headed "Campaign in US to smear ...

(39) Most of these articles were obviously influenced by the Ulster Workers' Strike in May, but the conclusions drawn from that event varied as it was then still apparently unclear whether the UWC strike had been a display of political muscle ...

There was brief flurry of interest in the media and the House of Commons and then- almost nothing. (1) This extraordinary lack of interest in unprecedented charges by a senior British politician ...

The British Army was already thinking along similar lines. With its extensive post-WW2 experience in counter-insurgency the Army sent Frank Kitson, a bright young officer with personal experience of British operations in Kenya and Cyprus, to Oxford University for a year to synthesise the extant literature on counter-insurgency methods. The result was ...

... have been the longest and most expensive privately-funded political dirty tricks campaign in recent British history. The astonishing 15-year campaign waged against Owen Oyston by Michael Murrin, the owner of a fish and chip shop in the village of Longridge, Lancs, was backed by help and cash payments raised by two former government ministers and a millionaire friend of Margaret Thatcher. The former Tory ministers are Sir Robert Atkins and Lord Blaker. Their target was the Labour Party's biggest private contributor in the days of Neil Kinnock's leadership. Sir Robert Atkins was once John Major's best friend in the Commons. He was the MP for South Ribble from 1983 to 1996 and a minister at the Department of Trade and ...

Her attitude is vulnerable to close scrutiny, especially in the two areas of SAS operational deployment and the ethics of soldiering. Recently Mr Ken Livingstone MP asked the Prime Minister details of a unit of Royal Engineers which operated in Northern Ireland in the 1970s in the Armagh area. The written ...

Stephen Dorril and Robin Ramsay have sought to unravel the events which took place at that time. They suggest that it was all part of a plan by elements within the ...
