... 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 ...

... www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-3560552/PETER- OBORNE-Corruption-27-years-lies-Hillsborough-destroyed-faith- police.html> The police were a vital arm of the British state in the Eighties as bloody battles were fought against criminals, football hooligans and trade unionists. Mrs Thatcher needed the police to take on the miners. She was, and is, an icon to Tories like myself. It pains me to write this, but we should ask ourselves whether she awarded the police a measure of impunity in return. It is disturbing, too, to learn that investigators are now examining whether behind-the ...

83. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... we 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 ...

... , Roosevelt, even Reagan – but the British system seems to offer us a different sort of lurch, from crisis to crisis with one step forward and two steps back. Hindsight and Truth But hindsight is a wonderful thing. After the invasion of Poland, Suez, the intervention of the IMF in the 1970s, the arrival of Maggie Thatcher, the Falklands War, the Iraq War, there are always those who see an inevitability that may never have been there in the first place. So it is with the current problems of New Labour, the shift of economic power to the East, the global credit crisis and a food crisis that might turn tin-pot tribal ...

... 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 ...

87. 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 ...

... couple of months ago. These professional hackers are very sophisticated with lots of money to spend – firewalls, anti-virus programs mean nothing to them. The key is to be watchful and very well backed up. ' 20 I have been sceptical about Engdahl ever since I discovered that he had been a member of Lyndon Larouche's org. Thatcherism: a complete failure? I was thinking one morning recently that it must now be easy to demonstrate that Thatcherism has been a complete failure, in its own terms: it didn't produce more growth, or the dynamic industrial revival the free market was supposed to bring. Serendipitously, that same day I received a very good Canadian piece ...

... powerful, protected perverts has been around for decades. ' The old 'old news' gambit G ossip, and indeed clear evidence of serious child abuse among politicians and the establishment in general has indeed been 'around for decades'. The former Conservative MP Edwina Currie mentions in her memoirs that Peter Morrison, a fellow Conservative MP and aide to Thatcher, was a 'noted pederast with a taste for young boys'. She adds that he confessed as much to another senior Conservative MP, Norman Tebbit, and wonders why the Thatcher government would take such a risk. Tebbit, asked whether there was a political cover-up of such matters, replied: 'I think there may well ...

In the real world, right-wing millionaire Hart is currently listed as a director ...
