63. The two Goulds (Summer 2012) [Lobster #63 (Summer 2012) (free)] [Free Article]
... 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 ...

64. 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 ...

... which had little interest in the domestic manufacturing economy, and the significant minority of his party which did not approve of dealing with unions.(22) Consequently, for both parties corporatism, as it became known, proved difficult to implement, though the economic results of those years in terms of output and employment were infinitely better than the Thatcher experiments which followed them. 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 ...

66. Well, how did we get here? (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Article]
... .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 ...

... , 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 ...

For Bower not only had access to White's memoir of the period, with White to vouch for him, he spoke to 'dozens' of former officers, mostly SIS, all of whom have broken their 'duty of confidentiality', or whatever the exact form of words it was that the Thatcher government came up with against Peter Wright. In the last chapter Bower reveals - confirms what some had suspected, or heard whispered - that White had been among those former officers who had been leaking information through the Thatcher years. This is one of the central paradoxes of the Thatcher period: while the Tories tried to clamp down on ...

... are many) was going to stop it, as long as this country was committed to being a military nuclear power. 'Consultation' is not democracy; public inquiries are not Socratic dialogues; for the most part they are the necessary pantomimes to rubber- stamp decisions taken in Whitehall. On the other hand, this was 1984: the Thatcher regime was still being challenged by the left; the Labour Party had not then embraced the 'Washington consensus'; the American banks had not completed their take-over of British economic thinking; the Cold War had been revived for the benefit of the American arms companies and opposition to American power and nuclear power was significant.
