21. The view from the bridge [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... Next Issue 56 The view from the bridge Maggie, Maggie, Maggie Giles Scott-Smith,(1) who wrote about the Congress for Cultural Freedom in Lobster 36 and 38, has written a very interesting study of Margaret Thatcher's first visit to America in 1967.(2) Scott-Smith shows that Thatcher, then a junior shadow spokesperson in the Tory Party, was talent-spotted by the State Department's man in the London embassy who liaised with the Tory Party, and was sent on a six week freebie in 1967 c/o the State Department's International Visitor Program. While there she was given VIP treatment and introduced to many big figures in American politics and business (described in detail by ...

22. The anti-union/strike-breaking organisations [Lobster #12 (Sep 1986)]
... GB 75 in 1974 and '75. These antecedents stretch back through every decade at least as far back as World War 1, show the kind of continuity of belief, personnel and action visible elsewhere on the Right; and, here as elsewhere in the history of the British Right, there is little information readily available. Other than the Tory Party itself, the only significant organisation which has survived on the Right since the 1920s is the Economic League, running a large-scale intelligence operation against the Left and the unions under cover of its propaganda operations. Continuously funded and staffed by British capital for over half a century, the Economic League has to be taken seriously. Yet there ...

23. The Labour Finance and Industry Group: a memoir [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... by activists who would drag the Party away from electability, a centralist but populist approach could inspire a million members to return to a youthful, reinvigorated centre-left. The funds could then be used to increase the political strike power of the Leader's Office and to invest in the sort of advanced marketing techniques that Saatchi& Saatchi had deployed for the Tory Party. Of course, this did not happen. New Labour's membership sunk to about 200,000 members, many of them disenchanted, while the Opposition Tories are drifting towards the 300,000 mark. Apart from the so-called Short money, neither political party can currently call on the public purse for much support (unless government access ...

... , the Economic League's manual Companies under Attack, had already targetted a number of these charities for criticism-- but they were, nevertheless, the group most publicly associated with it. In June 1987 they published a report on Christian Aid (researched by David Neil- Smith) which was well received by conservative newspapers; and at the Tory Party conference in October that year the charities were the main target of the Goalies fringe meeting, 'Alms for the Poor or Arms for Communism?' This campaign continued in 1989, concentating on the charities involved in 'Central America week'. A 'special' Western Goals (UK) report, written by Michael McCrone and Gideon Sherman ( ...

... replace Thatcher in this respect, Wyatt was soon engaged in cultivating him. This was his only value to Murdoch. Murdoch and Major The third volume of the diaries chronicles Major's falling out with Murdoch and Murdoch's embrace of Tony Blair. The cause of the parting of the ways was, from Wyatt's account, the Murdoch press's relentless persecution of Tory ministers, including Major himself, and their futile attempts to retaliate. (3) This is not a story that has appeared anywhere else, perhaps because of what it tells us about the realities of British democracy. On 19 January 1993 Wyatt told Major that the Sun had staked out a house 'where they think you have a girlfriend ...

26. Where's Ware? [Lobster #39 (Summer 2000)]
... Local government-- and local politicians-- generally get a bad press, some of it deserved, some not. British law tends to support this. A number of cases have made it extremely difficult for councils to sue for libel and/or damage to their reputation(s) .( 6) In the early Thatcher years Tory Party central office set up a section to trawl for, collate and occasionally invent, local government (i.e. anti-Labour) 'stories' that were then fed to the media, giving birth to the 'loony left'.(7) Through the '80s and '90s, as TV programmes such as Beadle's About showed members of the public being ...

... 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 to manage mass-media advertising ...

Winston Churchill MP, a member of the right-wing Monday Club, called for the use of troops to break the (first) miners' strike, (28) and fellow Monday Clubber John Biggs-Davison called for "a special anti-terrorist ...

Friedman is Milton Friedman, the public face of monetarism in the 1970s, who became prominent in the UK after 1976, the year he won the Nobel Prize for Economics. His belief in the centrality of controlling the economy's money supply was adopted by the Tory right around Thatcher, who had rejected Keynesian notions of the state managing the economy. Previous to this, in 1972 when they were faced with rising unemployment, Edward Heath's government had pulled all the levers at the state's disposal to increase demand in the economy. Unfortunately the British bankers had already persuaded the government to change the rules governing ...

30. A political journey [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... In short, the disillusioned democratic libertarian socialist tradition has little option but to return to a New Labour fold that sets fair to accommodate its concerns over time- albeit in part because no non-Tory alternative vehicle exists or is likely to exist in order to accept it. Placing the opportunistic Liberal Democrats to one side, we now glance at the Tory conundrum. We see not only a complete busted flush politically but one which has become a spoiler for any 'transvaluation of values' in politics. It is like a dead-weight on political free thought, unable, in its three-year window of opportunity, to out-flank New Labour with a national welfare model and fully caught in the time warp of ...
