... or indeed both. This is also the story of the first post-Cold War Prime Minister, John Major (now Sir John). He took office just a few days after the signing of the Peace of Paris, which ended the east-west struggle and ushered in what Philip Bobbitt has called 'the market state '.2 Indeed, Major's predecessor, Margaret Thatcher, was in the French capital for this event when she heard she had failed convincingly to see off the 1 'The Nostalgia Game', article first published 1986, republished in his Games with Shadows (Radius, 1988) 2 The Shield of Achilles (Penguin, 2002) leadership challenge from Michael Heseltine of which Major proved to be ...

... are opposed to the armed forces. The unit is well placed to do this because its members are civilians."' An anonymous former member of 20 COY expanded the significance of the phrase 'the change of government': 'The thing is there were some senior people in the forces at the time who were very right-wing and they thought that Thatcher coming in gave them carte blanche to get up to all sorts of things. We heard whispers that some of these people were trying to destabilise Labour before the Tories got back in.’ We've been here before. Back in the late 1970s, the people gathered round State Research and the Leveller, and individuals like Duncan Campbell and Tony Bunyan ...

... so little for the reasons above. Effectively, we are all living in Italy under Silvio Berlusconi.’ W[h ]ither Labour? I wasn't going to bother adding my 5p's worth to the discussion about the Labour Party's future but then I saw the following quote from Ken Livingstone in a 'what's on' free sheet in Hull.'[Thatcher] created today's housing crisis, she produced the banking crisis, she created the benefits crisis. It was her government that started putting people on incapacity benefits rather than register them as unemployed because the Britain she inherited was broadly at full employment. She decided when she wrote off our manufacturing industry that she could live with two or three ...

74. Why are we with Uncle Sam? [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... in 1973 Prime Minister Edward Heath refused to allow the Americans to use British bases in Cyprus for intelligence gathering during the Yom Kippur war between Israel and some of its Arab neighbours; and that this resulted in a temporary halt in the US signals intelligence flow to the UK. Heath was defeated two years later in a leadership contest by Margaret Thatcher, whom the Americans had been cultivating and promoting since 1967 as a potential leader of the Conservative Party. This may have been pay-back for Heath daring to defy the Americans. An American colony? Is Britain then just an American colony? Not in any conventional sense of colony. At any rate, if we have been colonised, ...

... (c) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 57) Summer 2009 Last| Contents| Next Issue 57 The view from the bridge NuLab and Uncle Sam In the last issue I discussed the research by Giles Scott-Smith on the US State Department's funding of a big freebie trip to the US for Mrs Thatcher in 1967, after the US embassy in London had spotted her as a possible future prime minister. Scott-Smith has more information on the Net. His 'Searching for the Successor Generat-ion: Public Diplomacy, the US Embassy's International Visitor Program and the Lab-our Party in the 1980s'(1) shows how the US cultivated the leaders of NuLab. 'This article looks at the influence of US public ...

... not persuaded of the decline of the 'Soviet threat'. (This was part of the wider debate about the reality of détente between NATO and the Soviet bloc.) Crozier and his chums certainly did not think MI5 was on the ball where the perceived menace from the Soviets and the left was concerned; and they got access to Mrs Thatcher when she was leader of the Opposition after 1975. On p. 670 Andrew tells us that when William Whitelaw became Home Secretary in the first Thatcher administration, 'he told [DG of MI5 Howard Smith] that he wished to be sufficiently well briefed to be able to counter "some of the rather extreme advice" Mrs Thatcher had ...

... are to believe him, senior US and Israeli politicians – coincided with that of New Labour. His associate for much of that time, Deborah Mattinson, now heads Opinion Leader Research (OLR), part of the Chime Communications empire of Tim (since 1990, Lord) Bell, who served in a somewhat similar advisory capacity to Margaret Thatcher. I have yet to see any report of how much of Gould and Mattinson's wealth has come from Labour party sources in those 20 years, or any independent evaluation of their 'research' on its account. Given the ease with which New Labour fabricated 'evidence' of WMDs, the focus group 'data' by whose findings Labour morphed into ...

... a largely accurate overview of the UK economy today; and, unsurprisingly, it doesn't make happy reading. As to how this all came about, they write at length about the failure to set up a sovereign wealth fund to invest the income from North Sea Oil and remind us (p. 189) of the casual spite of the Thatcher years by quoting Nigel Lawson's 1984 Mansion House speech in which he admitted that most jobs created in the future in the UK would be 'no tech'. (Up until then the line had been that 'low tech' employment was a temporary tactical manoeuvre to recover competitiveness in the global economy.) This is all fine; but amidst ...

79. The View [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... about the politics of the early 1980s in general and the Militant Tendency in particular. Here's Benn in the course of an appreciation of Arthur Scargill on his standing down as President of the National Union of Mineworkers in the Morning Star of 2 August 2002 'It gave me enormous pleasure that, after the 1984-5 miners strike, the Tories threw out Thatcher as Prime Minister and the miners reelected Arthur as their president.' I like that use of 'after' and its implied causality. So it was the miners' strike which deposed Thatcher, five years later. But didn't the Conservatives win an election in 1987? Arthur Scargill turned up in the Peter Taylor series on BBC2 in October ...

80. The Myth of the SAS [Lobster #30 (Dec 1995)]
... of 'the soldier hero', one of the myths of nationhood that provide 'a cultural focus around which the national community could cohere'. This celebration of the 'soldier hero' as the 'quintessential figure of masculinity' has a considerable pedigree, but it does seem as if the SAS have successfully established themselves as the 'soldier heroes' of the Thatcher years and beyond.(1) What I shall attempt here is an examination of this myth of the SAS as it is elaborated in Peter de la Billiere's autobiography and his personal account of the Gulf War.(2) Born Rebel De la Billiere was born in April 1934, the son of a Surgeon Lieutenant Commodore in the ...
