221. Tittle-tattle [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... was the headline on the BAP newsletter recording the result of the Blair campaign which Hobsbawn had helped fund and organise. Send in the clowns Things are now so bad for Blair that even newspaper columnists are beginning to notice the strange coincidences when a spot of bother threatens. Amanda Platell, ubiquitous supplier of thoughts to the media having lost her Tory Party spin doctor job a few years ago, offered this observation in The New Statesman in May. 'I was vilified on BBC1's Question Time by Estelle Morris for suggesting the government used decoys to divert attention from its problems. It was the week of Tony Blair's U-turn on the EU referendum and, coincidentally on that day, ...

222. Another way (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Article]
... at home and a new Europe-wide 'protectionism' abroad. Haseler's is a forceful work with some footnotes and a limited index. The Williams and Elliott volume is much better, and much of Haseler's ground is covered in a rather less hectoring manner. The contributors range from the Archbishop himself to Zac Goldsmith, with stimulating thoughts from 'Red Tory' Philip Blond, Financial Services Authority general counsel Andrew Whittaker, and theology student turned investment banker John Reynolds. The contributions from New Labour familiars Jon Cruddas and Will Hutton offer little that is new or incisive. Rowan Williams calls for 'an unashamedly immodest and ambitious plea for a renewal of political culture and social vision, a renewal of ...

223. In Spies We Trust (Book review) (Winter 2013) [Lobster #66 (Winter 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... The British upper (and upper-ish) classes have never been really comfortable with democracy. Hence their resistance to the very (European) idea of 'intelligence ethics'. Secrecy also of course allows them to hide their own incompetences and illegalities, and save their political masters embarrassment. That may be the reason for the 'shrillness' (Tory MP Dominic Raab's word) of the recent accusations against Snowden by Andrew Parker, head of MI5. (His revelations, Parker claimed, were a 'gift' to the terrorists.) Until now they've had the American intelligence élite with them on this. But America has its constitutional safeguards, which are coming into play; and a ...

224. Politics and Paranoia [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... issues, afraid of being smeared as 'unpatriotic' by the Murdoch-owned media. The Labour Party leadership, then and now, is afraid of tangling with the secret state for fear of damaging their careers. And so the biggest British domestic political story for about 20 years, a story of how elements of the secret state and the Tory Right worked together against the Wilson and Callaghan governments of the 1970s, was spurned by messieurs Kinnock and Hattersley; and instead of talking to me about a campaign to uncover the truth about the 1970s, the Labour Party began its fateful relationship with Peter Mandelson instead. And style triumphed over substance. Advertisement Politics and Paranoia Talks, 1986 ...

225. Punk monetarism [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... and its avoidance of contemporary horrors. For example, give or take the odd isolated outbreak, the modern misuse of the word 'gender' is avoided. One major regret is that Mr Turner chose to bring the curtain down in May 1979, given that the remainder of that year saw the changes of the 1970s start to crystallise. The Tories' first Budget switched the burden from direct to indirect taxation, hitting poorer families harder than wealthier ones. The war in Northern Ireland claimed Airey Neave, Lord Mountbatten and 18 British soldiers. Technology, touted in the 1950s and 1960s as the key to a glittering future, had become a threat, as newspapers and the airwaves filled ...

... it got its hands back on economic policy. Notice how Roberts puts this: "Two decades of cheap money came to an end in November 1951 when the New Conservative Chancellor revived the use of interest rates as an instrument of economic policy. ' "An instrument of economic policy', my foot. All that happened was that the Tory Chancellor put the interest rates up for the money-lenders who ran the party. In writing his essay Roberts cites not one of the writers who have been working in this field since the early 1970s. Do we really have to reinvent the wheel? A feeble creature though it is, Roberts' essay makes an appropriate scene- ...

... communists, supporting the US in Vietnam and forming the Friends of NTS, Foreign Affairs Publishing Company, Foreign Affairs Research Institute (FARI) and Foreign Affairs Circle. For a time the last named was the British affiliate to the World Anti-Communist League, though Stewart-Smith fell out with WACL. Stewart-Smith was an English Tory and described WACL to me as 'despotic Asian gangsters'. It has never been established where the funding came for most of this, though in 1987 he admitted that FARI had been mainly funded by the South African government. He was called the CIA's man in the House of Commons in the famous document The Monday Club: a danger ...

... Ministry of Economic Warfare in London, joined the British Embassy in Washington in 1949 as 1st Secretary, and later became Counsellor. After the war he returned to Lazards until the 1970s, and was also a director of Barclays Bank, Australia and New Zealand Banking Group and Commercial Union Assurance. Another board member, Lord Poole, was a Tory MP from 1945-1950 and chairman of the Conservative Party organisation from 1955-57. The 1st Viscount Blakenham married a daughter of the 2nd Viscount Cowdray and held several positions of state, as well as being chairman of the Conservative Party organisation from 1963-65. His son is now chairman of S. Pearson and Son. ...

... performance before the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee.7 He was accompanied there by David Jordan, the BBC's director of editorial standards and policy, who continued to defend the Newsnight decision not to run the Savile exposé with a version of events long shown to be untrue.8 Apart from gossipy little tales about Jordan's relationship with Tory MP Tracey Crouch, the mainstream media offered little background on this important figure at the BBC for more than 20 years. In his broadcasting youth, Jordan, along with Peter Mandelson and David Aaronovitch, was part of the London Weekend Television team recruited by John Birt for his Weekend World current affairs show. This, according to Birt ...

UKIP built its local support strongly in the following years at Labour's expense and in May 2015 the Conservatives took the seat. It was the first time since before the Second World War that Morley – the core of the constituency – found itself with a Tory MP.
