51. Enemies Within? (Book Reviews) [Lobster #29 (Jun 1995)]
... the National Union of Mineworkers and Arthur Scargill. There is much about MI5, Libya and Roger Windsor. There is everything short of a smoking gun. However, Milne is also running a thesis about the strike which says: (a) the miners nearly won; and (b) they were only defeated because the government cheated .'Margaret Thatcher...bent her government's own rules.... large-scale misuse of GCHQ and its outstations'. (p. 3, emphases added) Underpinning this thesis is the unstated assumption thatthe miners were not a subversive threat. This assumption seems to me to be logically necessary because had the miners been a subversive threat to the ...

... (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 ...

This is easily the most interesting and informative book on the Thatcher years to have appeared so far. Ranelagh was a member of the Conservative Research Department (CRD) between 1975-79-- a member of the internal opposition to Mrs Thatcher while 'Thatcherism' was being cobbled together by group around her. The CRD was then headed by Heathite Chris Patten. As a former, albeit junior 'insider', Ranelagh has had ...

56. The two Goulds (Summer 2012) [Lobster #63 (Summer 2012) (free)] [Free Issue]
... otherwise. Heath's difficulties were that his party was identified with the financial and overseas apparatus in London; and a significant minority of his party, some of its financial backers and some domestic capital wanted to destroy unions, not work with them. Consequently, for both parties what became known as corporatism or the producers' alliance proved difficult.1 Mrs Thatcher briskly resolved these difficulties by declaring trade unions 'the enemy within', abandoning the domestic economy, and giving the financial/overseas sector what it wanted in the 1980 budget: the abolition of exchange controls, high interest rates and no controls on lending.2 This had predictably and predicted disastrous consequences for the domestic manufacturing economy. The beginning of ...

57. Euro-bound? Or: the same river twice [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... world as the UK's, exporting and importing as much as this country does, the single most important decision is on the exchange rate. If the pound is too high, British export prices are too high to compete abroad. We are now into the third year of the current period of living with a pound valued too highly. Like Thatcher and her Chancellor of the Exchequer, Geoffrey Howe, in 1979-81, Labour has no exchange rate policy. Indeed, Gordon Brown warns of the perils of having one. On 10 June 1999 Brown said that while he understood the concerns of exporters: 'Anyone who thinks that dropping the inflation target to replace it with an exchange rate target ...

... , those of us who had followed in Fletcher's footsteps knew what was going on, even if we didn't then have all the details. In the 1950s the American tendency was known as the Gaitskellites. In the late 1960s and 70s it gathered round Roy Jenkins and eventually split Labour to form the SDP – a move which ensured that Mrs Thatcher won the 1983 general election. After which, job done, the SDP faded away. After the Labour election defeat of 1987 its leadership, Kinnock and Hattersley, set up a policy review: at the time it seemed like a transparent device to ditch the commitment to nuclear disarmament. Which indeed it was. But there was also ...

... Party's spokesmen.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 ...

Under Thatcher, Howe and Lawson, the overseas sector was given everything it had always wanted- no exchange controls, high interest rates and no controls on lending- with predictably disastrous results for the domestic economy.(23) The Labour Party's response The Labour Party leadership used to understand the conflict between the ...
