131. Historical Notes [Lobster #43 (Summer 2002)]
... Arms exports were good for the balance of payments and domestic employment; and guaranteed the security of the sea lanes around the Cape. The Wilson governments of 1964-70 had inherited the agreement from the Conservatives but had never been happy about it and by the time Labour left office exports of arms to South Africa had stopped. When the Tories returned, however, their first instinct was to resume the practice. And indeed sales did recommence - but not on a very grand scale. The anti-climax (from the perspective of Tory imperialists such as Julian Amery) has been ascribed by recent historians to an unwillingness to upset the Commonwealth, especially the newly independent African states ...

... Minister and he figured he could do whatever he wanted. I have a picture of him with Oliver North. I mean, he got very involved with us at one time. He liked the fast life. He liked to do drugs. He was big into racing cars. He liked women and he raised money for us among loyal Tories in England. That money would then get funnelled through Churchill Matrix, until it later became revealed what Churchill Matrix was doing - vis-a -vis illicit and illegal armaments shipments in the Middle East. ' (p . 42) Much of this is wrong. The name of the Matrix Churchill, for starters. (And ...

133. Blair and Israel [Lobster #43 (Summer 2002)]

Cosgrave, director of Labour Friends of Israel, says Blair "brought back Labour Friends of Israel into the Labour Party, in a sense .. .. .. .before the majority of supporters of Labour Friends felt uncomfortable with the Labour Party. ' (6 ) By 1994 it was clear that, barring a miracle, the Tories would lose the next General Election; Tony Blair was widely recognised as one of Labour's coming men; and there had already been speculation in the media - notably in The Sunday Times - that he would succeed John Smith as Labour leader. It is hard to read this account of the events from Blair's trip to Israel to the funding ...

... Edward Heath in the 1975 contest for the leadership of the Conservative Party; the bit before that is neither here nor there. Yet that pre-1975 section gets 248 of the 362 pages and the private armies/subversion material gets only 30 of the rest. He does a decent job rehashing Neave's role in the election of Thatcher as Tory leader in 1975 and assembles an interesting but inconclusive collection of the speculation around his assassination: did INLA do it? Did the CIA? (Enoch Powell's view.) Did elements of MI6, afraid that Neave would be appointed by Thatcher to clean house in the intelligence services? In one sense it is a pity that Routledge gave ...

... SIS, given to Con Coughlin then the Sunday Telegraph's man in Whitehall, at that time the paper's chief foreign correspondent. (6 ) The Telegraph made pathetic attempts to pretend it didn't know the provenance of the story. Do SIS pay the Telegraph's legal fees in cases like this? Told you so Lobster's award for prescience goes to former Tory Cabinet member John Nott. In his recent memoir, reviewed below, he wrote on p. 350: 'Money is a corrupting influence on advice. One-stop financial shopping is the current fashion, but it will not last. The internet bubble has already revealed the lack of quality control being excercised by the big investment banks, ...

... 1924 election, loaded with false implications, such as: that Labour had a majority to begin with (they only won 191 seats in 1923 - and only contested 427 out of 615); or that they had a serious prospect of winning one in 1924 (there were only about 100 winnable marginals, and only 40 of those were Tory-Labour - the rest were either Liberal-held, or three-way splits, when the Liberals had been keeping Labour out of office since 1923); or that the Tories' 154 net gains in 1924 came from Labour (two thirds were from the Liberals); or that the increase in the Tory vote came from ...

137. The Party of Business and the B usiness of Parties [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... challenged about the immorality or otherwise of taking a large donation from Richard Desmond, the pornographer, we were told morality wasn't at issue. No wonder that grassroots political party structures are on the wane in the UK! The Conservatives may still claim to be the largest party with 370,000 members to Labour's 260,000, but the Tories used to claim 3 million. Pragmatism is not the world's greatest recruiting sergeant it would seem. In each U.S . state there are unlikely to be more than one or two full-time party employees and very few activists. During election periods this is compensated for by the temporary recruitment of consultants, whose role is chiefly ...

... spot about the 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 ...

... conspiracy theorists! Lobbying news The Labour government's bizarre decision to follow America down the casinos-are-good-for-you route (See Lobster 43 p. 33 ) was the result of lobbying by a firm called Good Relations whose members include David Hill, some time Labour chief press officer, Penny Chobham, the partner of former Tory cabinet minister David Mellor, who chairs the British Casino Association, and the son of Lord Bernard Donoghue, Steve. ( 'Labour's big gamble on casino deals', The Guardian 10 August 2002) Joe Irvin, the government's top transport adviser, left to join to Freedom to Fly, a lobby group funded by the British Airports ...

... didn't notice the publication date until I began to write this. In the early 1980s it began to dawn on people on the left of British politics - including this writer - that the Conservative Party was in the control of people about whom, and about whose thinking, they knew almost nothing. The readily available sources of information on the Tories were then slight: in practice, there was Searchlight and Labour Research. Pursuing its aim of amplifying the fascist 'threat' to bolster support for and the legitimacy of, the state of Israel, Searchlight was then pushing the idea that the Tories had been infiltrated by a barely disguised group of semi-fascists. This climaxed with the ...
