... disinformation operations, much vaunted in the 1980s by the U.S . intelligence services, consisted of little more than a few naff projects which seem to have fooled nobody. So poor was the output of these disinformation programmes (a couple of examples are reprinted in this volume) that a tape recording in which the voices of Reagan and Thatcher had been edited together to apparently show them discussing a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union was attributed to the KGB. In the event the tape turned out to be the work of the now defunct rock group Crass. (This is discussed in the Observer, 22 January, 1984.) There is one unintentionally funny chapter in which ...

... that changes to the law, reducing the defence's right to see the prosecution's evidence, are on the way. Notes Two sure signs that this country's economic crisis is getting worse. The first was the reports in March and April that the Treasury was beginning to question the workings of Britain's financial system - after the non-regulation of the Thatcher period. The second was the report by Richard Norton-Taylor in the Guardian (9 February, 1994) that the government was actually reviewing the activities - i.e . the cost - of MI6 and GCHQ. Must be panic in the Treasury. Debated in the House of Lords, on 9 December. The Bill makes ...

... in 1919 through to its recent demise - about half of the book's 194 pages. The other half is a digest of research into the British right-wing which Hughes, like a few others on the British Left began in the mid 1980s; and a rather perfunctory account of the covert operations against the Wilson government and the rise of Thatcherism. The Right is another country Left pioneers like Mike Hughes into the strange country of the British Right were wrestling with the discovery that ideas we had all assumed to be dead and buried had risen up to assault us. And when they looked for published information on the antecedents of this group of people and organisations, they found almost ...

... contradictions. Not just economic planning but Keynesian demand management was proving impossible in the face of capital's rapid internationalisation, while trade union willingness to accept stagnant or even falling living standards in the cause of high employment had obviously evaporated. So after 1979 there was indeed 'no alternative' to a reassertion of laissez faire, pursued with zeal by Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher sought to recreate the liberal synthesis of free markets, liberty and greatness which (she believed) had characterised Britain in 1851. Yet this could not be done. Economic liberalisation, if anything, accelerated industrial decline and precipitated an unsustainable credit boom, leading to a slump. Meanwhile left-wing resistance to Thatcherism, particularly ...

... of the investigating officers, Det. Sgt Mayne, admits that this case 'doesn't follow the accepted pattern of burglaries'.(16) But if it was not a bungled theft, by an admittedly very special burglar, what was the intruder's motive? MI5, Zeus and nuclear protest Some writers believe that it was the determination of the Thatcher government to push through a highly ambitious nuclear power programme which set the context for this murder. We know from Cathy Massiter (17) that the MoD and Home Office were using MI5 to monitor anti-nuclear war protesters, and from Gareth Parry (18) that an American company, thought to be pressurised water reactor (PWR ...

... or the troop ship Canberra - had been destroyed in a missile attack. The Polaris deployment was said to have been ordered in the wake of the sinking of HMS Sheffield, after ministers had to confront the possibility that Argentine air superiority and Exocet missiles could mean the military defeat of the British task force and the rapid political extinction of the Thatcher government. The New Statesman has been able to confirm that a Polaris submarine was indeed deployed to this position. Details of the deployment are given in a series of highly classified telegrams sent to the British Embassy in Washington. ' I do not know the source of the New Statesman information other than that it was not the same as ...

... 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 ...

... a massive breach of the new Official Secrets Act. 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 ...
