... would sit down with sworn political enemies. One of our team, seeking advice on how best to construct a balanced group of discussants, asked a previous guest, the 'terrorism expert' Professor Paul Wilkinson of Aberdeen University. All hell broke loose as Wilkinson decided to go public. He attacked the proposal to have Adams on the programme; Tory MPs, including Mrs Thatcher's parliamentary private secretary,(14) joined a chorus of protest; previously confirmed participants withdrew from the programme; and both C4 and the television regulator, the IBA, issued press releases within minutes of one another. Finally the C4 Director of Programmes Liz Forgan and I agreed a deal: if a former ...

102. Fifth Column: The decadence of our political system [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... wing but because Conservatives may seem to be able to offer a better deal in meeting the essential requirements of defence of the realm, economic stability and the ability to preempt and handle disasters. Indeed, New Labour may still pull a rabbit out of a hat and be returned to power – which really would be a damning indictment of the Tory or, indeed, any alternative. But what if New Labour's drive for power over a decade ago has broken the system more fundamentally? What if all it has done is to demonstrate that every generation of the political class under our current party-based parliamentary democracy, not just this one, has done nothing better than lurch from ...

103. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... intervention Blair would have had a smaller majority.(6 ) However this does not take into consideration any indirect effect amongst the electorate as a whole caused by Goldsmith, the Referendum Party and the Bruges Group from 1989 onwards, and particularly from 1993-1997. The loss of morale amongst many Conservative supporters and the subsequent failure of many Tories to vote at all is difficult to measure; but it seems reasonable to assume that the division on Europe that was openly displayed and exploited by Goldsmith cost John Major many votes. Goldsmith may have helped to cause a severe Conservative defeat in circumstances that would otherwise have resulted in a hung parliament. The other Goldsmith During the years that ...

104. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... time proved more durable. It led to the Downing Street Declaration of 1992 and the deliberate scuppering of the Combined Loyalist Military Command who wanted to close down sectarian killings and take out the IRA leadership.(31) At every turn, despite the myth that the political right are the natural allies of Unionism in Britain, it was a Tory administration that made the concessions to the IRA but did so behind the backs of Northern Ireland's population and the wider British public. If the British government was initially ambivalent as to whether Sinn Fein would form part of a bourgeois administration in Northern Ireland, then this didn't apply to John Hume – the initial architect of permanent coalition government in ...

105. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... in his highly readable book is a process whereby a capitalism too decadent to produce ideas of its own looks to a decaying Stalinist Broad Left to sustain its hegemony. This is actually more evident in Britain than the US and, indeed, much of Marshall's book concerns itself with the British situation. Here, New Labour has completely replaced the Tories as the main party of British capitalism by hijacking the historical Labour Party in violation of its own constitution. But while Tony Blair had almost zero experience of labour movement politics and was certainly no intellectual, those who theorised and rendered the process possible – in terms of a Gramscian war of position or construction of a hegemony – were former ...

106. New Labour news [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Predictably, no-one in the political system put a sustained set of questions about Murdoch to him. 2000 'He [TB] wanted to say at some point why it had been right to keep the best (sic) of Thatcherism.......we had to make people feel that just because they had voted Tory during the eighties, it didn't make them bad people........TB said "What gives me real edge is that I'm not as Labour as you lot"....In another conversation later, he said the problem with schools was uniformity of teaching. I said the problem was the background ...

107. Hacks, pols and PR [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St Clair have for years edited the US-based political newsletter CounterPunch. So from which of the above, do you reckon, do we get this? 'I gradually became aware that the conventional narrative structure which is used to give sense and meaning to British politics was extremely misleading. Though the public is told that Tory and Labour are in opposition, that is not really the case. They are led to believe that the Liberal Democrats are an insurgent third party, but that is not the case. It has come to seem to me that their strongest loyalties are to each other. ' Oborne's denunciation of the way the 'Political Class' is ruining ...

... who later gives a talk at St. Paul's Cathedral: 'I've never heard him speak down to anyone', he notes, not, presumably, expecting any reader to demur. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Glass records his return to London with an observation that needs to be repeated: 'The Labour apparatchiks swallowed whole the late Tory view that the public does not exist....... everyone is a customer; all services and professions are businesses. ' The public did seem to exist as protests against any intervention in Iraq increased, but it was ignored. Its spokespersons, accused by supporters of the invasion of belonging to a left that no ...

109. Good-bye Tony [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... puts my picture on a placard to campaign for my release, she will be arrested if she walks within half a mile of Parliament Square. Blair's Britain is the logical outgrowth of Thatcher's; a Stalinism complete with Orwell's endless war, obsessed with the enemy within – the idea of enfranchising the working class. Blair's McKinsey-trained hordes accelerated Tory transformation of public service to private profit. New Labour abrogated the responsibilities of democratic government, leaving even the waging of war to private enterprises who profit even as they balls-up contract after contract. By redefining the state as a corporation, British 'subjects' (you've never been 'citizens') are transformed into 'consumers, ' then ...

110. The 1975 Referendum on Europe, reviewed [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... Sad to say, then, that these two volumes are really not very interesting. Volume 1, the memories of people involved in the 1975 referendum, contains almost nothing that we didn't know already. The familiar story is re-told: the 'anti' campaign had little money and, because they were composed of the Labour left and Tory right, had difficulty working together; they didn't produce a professional-looking campaign and were portrayed by the media as a group of oddballs. Meanwhile the 'pros', containing all the centrists who had been promoted by the media as the 'sensible' people, had tons of money and some covert help from the British secret state in ...
