... undermine his government. Putting together this plot and the context in which it took place is the bulk of this essay. A number of threads make up the background. There was the war in Northern Ireland, and the economic crisis generated by the Heath/Barber 'dash for growth' and the political reaction to it from sections of the Tory Party and their allies in capital and the Secret State. By late 1973 people on the right believed that they were witnessing the end of British democracy, the 'British way of life' and everything. Heath and co. ended up taking on the miners for the second time (and losing); and fighting a 'Who rules? ...

(A similar piece appeared contemporaneously in The Economist, although not attributed to ISC.) (18) Another operation on the right at this time was being run by Geoffrey Stewart-Smith, the Tory MP for Belper (1970-74). After leaving the British Army, Stewart-Smith had set up the Foreign Affairs Circle in 1962 and began publishing the East-West Digest, a hard-line anti-Soviet journal which was sent free to all MPs. (We don't know yet who funded this venture.) ...

93. New Labour Notes [Lobster #37 (Summer 1999)]
... (9 ) It was 1982. Butler was then a 27 year-old Research Fellow at the Royal Institute for International Affairs (as well as an economist with British Petroleum) and Treasurer of the Fabian Society.(10) In 1982 the UK was in the depths of the Thatcher/Lawson/Howe-created depression; the Tories were showing the lowest poll ratings since polls had been created;(11) CND was booming; anti-nuclear (and thus anti-American) campaigns were blossoming all over Western Europe. In this context Butler wrote a memo to David Watt, then director of Chatham House (the RIIA), in which he said, ...

... that go full term, Labour went down to defeat in 1979. Nor was white working-class and white suburban racism defeated. Voters of that ilk just moved into the embrace of the Conservative Party after Margaret Thatcher legitimized their concerns with her 'feeling rather swamped' comments on Granada TV in January 1978. Both Labour's '79 defeat and the Tories assimilation of the extreme right were salutary lessons that cultural campaigns and nice music were no substitute for winning real political battles. 2-Tone faded away quite quickly and had run out of steam by late 1980. Nor did artistic unity prevail. Two of its early signings both quit as soon 9 Poly Styrene was a fantastically memorable character ...

95. Nothern Ireland redux [Lobster #38 (Winter 1999)]
... Titled 'The secret conspiracy to destroy peace in Ireland', this was Ken revisiting the days in 1987 when he made his maiden speech in the Commons based on the allegations of Colin Wallace and Fred Holroyd about dirty tricks in Northern Ireland and the mainland UK. Unfortunately Ken's memory of the period is a little hazy. The outrage on the Tory benches at Livingstone's maiden speech was focused on his references to the role of the late Airey Neave in the so-called Wilson plots of mid-1970s, as told to Ken by Colin Wallace. Wallace had been contacted by Neave in 1976 after Wallace had been bounced out of Northern Ireland and his job as the British Army's psy ...

96. Six Moments of Crisis: inside British foreign policy (Reviewed) (Summer 2013) [Lobster #65 Summer 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... right up to the moment of decision. What Katie – or rather, Clem, Anthony, Harold and the rest – did next is for other books to cover, as indeed they have. The concentrated nature of the material yields some marvellous anecdotes and demolishes a few myths along the way. Thus those to whom the pre-Thatcher Tories were suave internationalist moderates may be surprised to learn that Selwyn Lloyd, Foreign Secretary at the time of Suez, 'spoke no foreign languages, had never been abroad except in wartime and did not like foreigners'. By contrast, Eden was 'an Arabic speaker with a deep knowledge of Middle Eastern history and politics, and had a long ...

... 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, had worked out for themselves that Mrs Thatcher was the candidate of the security state. That members of the armed forces took her election as their cue ...

... one else took their reports seriously, she did, taking them home in the evenings; and under her the spooks' budgets more than doubled. This isn't so surprising. Mrs Thatcher's rise was managed by Airey Neave, whose 'intelligence connections' even she acknowledges in the first volume of her memoirs; and when she became leader of the Tory Party she was given tutorials by a group of retired spooks, which included Brian Crozier. Little wonder that she once told an interviewer that she'd read Frederick Forsyth's execrable The Fourth Protocol twice. Forsyth's novel, you may recall, describes a Kinnock-led Labour Party getting into office only to suffer an internal coup from the left, ...

... police say the murder case cost Chris More senior £350,000. His technical ability is legendary. A former World in Action reporter at Granada Television remembered More as 'The Ultimate Hacker' and stated that during the legal battle between Jonathan Aitken MP and The Guardian, Chris More played to his prospective clients recordings of telephone conversations between the Tory defence procurement minister and his daughter Victoria. Aitken's case against The Guardian and Granada TV collapsed after the production of evidence that Aitken's wife had not paid for him to stay at the Paris Ritz. Aitken was jailed for perjury in 1999. Chris More had worked on investigations for News International for over 20 years, retained by their solicitors ...

100. Clearing the ground: the unions, socialism and the state [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... Another of the corporatist groups financed by Midlands industrialists, the British Commonwealth Union (BCU), led by the Birmingham MP, Sir Patrick Hannon, began funding MPs to form an Industrial Group in Parliament. The first 11 candidates were subsidised by the BCU in the 1918 election: by 1924 the group in parliament consisted of 105 (mostly Tory) members. Hannon's Industrial Group chiefly wanted government protection of British industry against foreign competition, but, to quote Hannon, they also 'wanted the largest measure of freedom in the relationship between capital and labour and the least state intervention possible. '( 7 ) These early corporatist dreams failed for a number of reasons. Employer organisations were ...
