61. Climbing the Bookshelves by Shirley Williams (Book review) (Winter 2009/2010) [Lobster #58 (Winter 2009/2010)(free)] [Free Issue]
... briefly in the Commons and then in the Lords, she was regularly back among the liberal East Coast fraternity. But readers looking for insight into the US/UK relationship from someone so well positioned will be disappointed, as they will be in seeking any sharp observations on British politics. Those who remember the Callaghan government and the rise of Thatcher may recall Williams and other Labour right-wing ministers vociferously rushing to the defence of one of their number, Reg Prentice, faced with deselection. Prentice subsequently switched parties probably the highest ranking Labour figure ever to defect to the Tories but he doesn't rate a mention in these memoirs. There are lots of similar gaps. There's nothing ...

... the NUM, then the head of its F2 branch, Stella Rimington, wrote later: 'The 1984 miners' strike was supported by a very large number of members of the National Union of Mineworkers, but it was directed by a triumvirate who had declared that they were using the strike to try to bring down the elected government of Margaret Thatcher and it was actively supported by the Communist party.

... the scenes, it was Gladio's triumph. Heath was destroyed by the libels revolving around his sexuality and his own loftiness, rooted in insecurity, which rendered him easy prey to ruthless secret service gossip mongers. (p. 248) Which is nonsense. The stories about Heath's sexuality had no coverage and almost no impact. Heath was defeated by Thatcher because he lost the two elections of 1974 and caused the great inflation of the period. He might have he got away with what Mrs Thatcher and the late Sir Rhodes Boyson described as his 'monetary incontinence' but losing the elections as well of course he would be challenged. Sometimes politics is just politics. Wilson's surprise resignation in ...

... free market policies and a generally centre right, suburban outlook. Clegg defeated his closest rival Chris Huhne by a tiny margin, with a significant number of pro-Huhne votes being discounted.7 In his book Rob Wilson MP points out that Clegg had apparently been a member of the Conservative Association at Cambridge University, and that he later worked for Thatcher cabinet member Sir Leon Brittain when Brittain was an EU Commissioner. It was clear, then, that Clegg might be more inclined than his predecessors to talk to the Conservatives. With only a small amount of hindsight, and recognising the curious subplot that led to the demise of Kennedy, Campbell (and Huhne) in quick succession, ...

... had left the Scottish criminal justice system a 'mangled wreck'. Speaking at Holyrood in support of it, Scottish Lib Dem leader Willie Rennie said: 'This is not a normal case. It's Scotland's biggest terrorist atrocity. These are serious questions raised by serious people, and the world is watching. But Mr Salmond, following the precedents of Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron, was adamant in his refusal: 'They're looking for an inquiry for the responsibility, ultimately, for Lockerbie. That touches on matters of huge international importance which would be beyond the ability of the Scottish inquiry to summon witnesses, compel evidence, etcetera. According to John Ashton's ...

In Britain, the focus has always been on Murdoch's close relationship first with Thatcher and then with Blair and Brown. What McKnight brings out is the extent to which it is the United States that is the real object of Murdoch's affection. While he was very close to Thatcher, it was Reagan and Reaganism that 'were the most important influences on Rupert Murdoch's political world view'. This is an important corrective. ...

... 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 ...

... , 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 ...

... such admirable views are worth a look and Bob Marshall-Andrews' extremely witty, indeed laugh-out-loud volume, Off Message, does not disappoint. He recalls the heady days when he first entered the Commons in 1997, looking forward to a long period of Labour government that would 'buttress parliamentary power, entrench historic civil liberties which had been threatened by the Thatcher administration and address the twin problems of poverty and inequality'. He was, in his own words, a 'poor innocent fool'. What went wrong? He fixes most of the blame on Blair's 'irresistible addiction to money and those who possessed it' and Mandelson's 'arriviste vanity...which demanded intimate association with celebrity and wealth ...
