171. No smoke without fire? [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... The reasons for doing this were given as being progressive and libertarian, ostensibly a desire to avoid institutionalisation and exposure to a harmful criminal milieu. The reality was that they were mainly financial. Establishments like Bryn Estyn, where there was a ratio of about 80 staff to 100 boys and young men, were very expensive to run. The Tories closed them. Webster concludes that what we have seen since the mid 1980s is a continuation of the traditional witch hunt, based on fear and prejudice rather than reason. It is interesting that belief in widespread paedophile rings, satanic abuse cults and 'cover-ups' by highly placed figures (Freemasons etc) involves adoption of classic conspiracy ...

172. 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 ...

173. 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 ...

174. Blairusconi: populism and elite rule [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... ' politics after a prolonged period of sleaze and corruption, and both found themselves quickly mired amongst it. Berlusconi came to power after the Tangentopoli (Italian for bribeville) scandal which exposed decades of corruption and bribery at the very heart of Italian politics. Tony Blair came to power promising to be 'whiter than white' after the decade of Tory sleaze and corruption culminating in the Scott Report into the arms for Iraq scandal. The idea of being a cleansing force in politics was central to both Blair and Berlusconi, even if both goals were quickly exposed as being, at best, 'unrealistic'.(2 ) But the links between Forza Italia and New Labour go much deeper ...

... organs, or a disassembled machine with no attempt to explain how the social process of the production and distribution of 'wealth' actually takes place.(1 ) Notes Lobster readers may be interested to know that a spin-off from Rubinstein's inquiries into family histories (not mentioned in the present book) was his remarkable discovery that the senior Tory politician Leo Amery kept secret all his life his Jewish ancestry. Since Amery, as Milner's lieutenant, was the true author of the infamous Balfour Declaration of 1917 and, as Colonial Secretary in the 1920s, oversaw the creation of the Israeli Defence Force, this fact casts fresh light upon the story of British imperialism during the first two ...

176. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... security regime before Blair's departure. It is almost as if John Reid is more valuable to the 'Project' in his role as Home Secretary than he could ever be as Prime Minister. An internal security regime is being bureaucratically pre-fixed for a new Prime Minister. This means that it is going to be hard to unravel by any Tory successor. It is an approach that caps a wider shift to intelligence-based policing in which the subjects of the intelligence-gathering are ourselves, our dissidents and our underclass in equal measure. Blair and Reid have now centralised counter-terrorism activity by having the Prime Minister (as office rather than person) chair a new committee ...

... through German airspace. This inquiry comes after a separate parliamentary investigation by the so-called oversight committee, which meets in private to oversee the intelligence services activities had cleared the government and intelligence agencies of any wrongdoing. In this country the establishment of a cross-party campaign on extraordinary rendition by over 50 MPs and Lords, chaired by Tory MP Andrew Tyrie, is to be welcomed. Firstly for its all-party nature; secondly for its involvement of more than the usual suspects. It has published a number of briefings by eminent lawyers. British collaboration with the USA is done under the mechanism of very many different agreements, memoranda of understandings etc., many of ...

178. 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 ...

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 ...

180. 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.
