141. Demos - fashionable ideas and the rule of the few [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... , the revisionist Left had influence but no power, squeezed between the thoroughly right wing AEEU political machine (which was soon to be placed at the disposal of Tony Blair) and a group of trades union leaders who remained thoroughly workerist in their dealings with the modernising Party. On the other side of the political divide I remember visiting the Tory-inclined Scottish and Newcastle Brewery and being satisfied that we had found ourselves a neat boundary on the Right (in other words, that social Tories were prepared to invest in modernising Marxists). But I stood back from an out-right selling job, merely helping to change and adapt the rhetoric to make sure that no rich ...

142. Historical Notes [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... for the Blair administration to demonstrate this Anglo-American solidarity, revealing a conviction that it was central to the defence of Britain's national interest. More than this, Blair's stance was a sign that Atlanticism in the UK was now bipartisan. After 1979 the two major political parties had gone separate ways on the special relationship: under Thatcher the Tories had drawn closer to the USA than they had been under Heath; while Labour under Foot and Kinnock had adopted a stance critical of the USA and its role in the world (though the process of rapprochement started under Kinnock after the 1987 election defeat). In the Iraq crises of 1998 and 2003 there was no difference between Labour ...

... 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 ...

144. Denis Healey (Book Review) [Lobster #45 (Summer 2003)]
... , 2002, 25, h/b . Compared to the present crop of media-trained, PR-conscious, line-following, careerist pigmies who comprise the current Labour Cabinet, Denis Healey looks like a giant from a golden age. Before his well known roles as Minister of Defence and Chancellor of the Exchequer (during the Tory-induced inflation of the late 1970s), Healey was a central figure in the Anglo-American defence establishment, an intellectual who knew enough to talk and write about NATO policy and nuclear strategic theory, not just deliver briefings. (Cf the current Defence Secretary, Geoff Hoon.....) Pearce conveys this, ...

Clearing the channels for Blair?An alumnus of the Johns Hopkins offspring international relations school in Bologna is Blair's former Washington ambassador. In April, Sir Christopher Meyer became chairman of the Press Complaints Commission (PCC). He succeeds Lord Wakeham, the ex-Tory Cabinet minister and Enron director who stood down from the PCC after the crooked US company's collapse. After Lancing College and Peterhouse, Cambridge, Meyer spent his year with Johns Hopkins in Italy before entering the diplomatic service in 1966. After postings to Moscow and Madrid he was appointed permanent secretary to the European Community in 1978 during Roy Jenkins ...

... group used by Micheal Heseltine to undermine CND. The Hukluytand Demos connections with the CER (which is a partner with the Atlantic Council of the AEI) are a slight indication that there are continuities with anti-Left operations dating back to Heseltine and Crozier's days. CER's office is 29 Tufton Street, Westminster, which they share with the Tory Reform Group which contains Heseltine, Kenneth Clarke, Lord Hurd, Sir Malcolm Rifkind and a host of other top Conservatives. The office is also used bythe Action Centre for Europewhich has Lords Carrington, Howe, Brittan, Kenneth Clarke, Stephen Dorrell and so on. The Conservative Group for Europe (much the same line-up) ...

... 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 ...

148. 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.
