81. The Cuntocracy [Lobster #62 (Winter 2011 ) (free)] [Free Issue]
... exact origin of something can be obviated quite simply: we simply provide our own mythology; people are a lot more willing to go along with myths rather than waste time finding out facts. If a trick works once it might just work again. One overlooked aspect of F. A. Hayek's The Road to Serfdom (the book Margaret Thatcher slapped the table with saying that it had taken over her mind) is in a short section called 'Why the Worst Get on Top', where it is argued that the most amorally flexible people involved in a bureaucracy tend to rise to the top and become its leaders.8 Hayek pretended he was writing on 'totalitarianism', something he largely ...

... outdated campaign maps left over from the 1973/4 strike and sent some of their 'flying pickets' to stand outside sites that had been closed. I supported the strike until the 1974 so-called 'Ridley plan' (2) was revived in the media. This made it clear that the miners had been pushed into a strike for which the Thatcher wing of the Tory Party and the state had been preparing for a decade Miners' Strike 2, the Showdown with the Left and thus the miners were doomed. On page 245 of this book the authors write: 'the Prime Minister thought she was on a crusade against an Antichrist. After vanquishing the Argentineans she was going to vanquish ...

83. The view from the bridge [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... (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 ...

84. 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, ...

... to be true, it is too good to be true. For an entertaining examination of the events of the 1990s leading up to the present mess, see Frank Portnoy, Fiasco: blood in the water on Wall Street (London: Profile Books, 1997) On the wider British issues, the connections between the current situation and the Thatcher years' obsession with the market and the City, see Peter Wilby, 'All of us live by the logic of finance' at <www.newstatesman.com>. Dan Hind's 'Jump You Fuckers', at <http://www.versobooks.com/> is a droll and sharp general piece about the crisis. Et enfin Here are the concluding two ...

86. The meaning of the 2009 Budget [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... common feature in all developed economies during the last forty or fifty years, but the UK experience has been more intense than in many comparable economies. In 1960 manufacturing accounted for 35 per cent of the UK GDP. It fell back from this level over the subsequent twenty years, but its share still remained over 30 per cent. The Thatcher years saw a much more rapid decline, as large parts of British industry closed down while the financial and service sectors expanded. This process slowed down, and was for a time even reversed during the Major Premiership, but by the end of the 1990s manufacturing was contributing a little over 20 per cent to the GDP. The contraction ...

87. Politics and Paranoia [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... But it wasn't just prejudice on my part. I had tried. Before I began Lobster, me and another bloke in Hull, Colin Challen, now a Labour MP, produced a radical local monthly magazine. I stayed involved for about 20 issues, none of which sold more than 500 copies. At that time, four years into Thatcher, her big recession in full swing, local radical mags were springing up all over Britain. I remember attending a conference in 1984 at which we all got together. But they all went bust, as far as I know. Yes, in Hull we couldn't get the distribution; and yes, we couldn't get the adver-tising; ...

... explored by journalist Carl Fellstrom. 'I'm working on a book which is the story of an undercover police officer. Believe it or not he went undercover to infiltrate the miners during the strike. A lot of people wouldn't realise that the authorities in Nottingham would use their own police officers to resolve what was a civil law situation, but that's Thatcher for you.'(24) All in the mind? A series of experiments 'tested whether lacking control increases illusory pattern perception [defined] as the identification of a coherent and meaningful interrelationship among a set of random or unrelated stimuli. Participants who lacked control were more likely to perceive a variety of illusory patterns, including seeing images ...

... of the United States Information Agency in 1981, fell way short of his subject's significance for British readers. Yes, it was important to be reminded that Wick instituted a USIA blacklist that included Coretta Scott King and Walter Cronkite. But there was nothing of Wick's important role in domestic European politics during the revived Cold War of the Reagan/ Thatcher/Kohl years. Wick's work is not hard to uncover. A sceptical Senate Foreign Relations Committee forced the USIA director to divulge all his contacts with those he met in Europe during Reagan's fierce anti-Soviet reign, and published them in 1984 for any Washington correspondent to pour over as USIA: Recent Developments. While Greenham Common women were protesting ...
