31. 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 ...

... Army's Land Manual had been updated and a new section on counter-insurgency added (26); and in 1972, with the Army embroiled in a counter-insurgency situation in Northern Ireland, Kitson was given command of the Belfast Brigade and the chance to try out some of his theories.(27) By 1972 politicians on the Tory right had begun to speak publicly of the need for Army involvement in civil affairs on the UK mainland. 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 ...

... 'In grad school (1965-70) Friedman was seen as a lunatic. ' 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 ...

34. Back to the future: the 1970s reconsidered [Lobster #34 (Winter 1998)]
... the 1970s. For the 1970s led to Mrs. Thatcher, which led to the progressive collapse of Labour as a radical, reforming party.(2 ) Mrs. Thatcher claimed legitimacy from the events of the 1970s; and the Blair faction have, in turn, accepted as legitimate much of what was done in her name. The Tory and Labour Thatcherites see the 1970s as a disaster and 1979 is their Year Zero. There is a curious symmetry here: at the end of the 1970s the insurgent wings of both the major parties were dominated by betrayal myths. The Labour Left believed the Wilson-Callaghan governments had betrayed the party and socialism with a series of sell ...

... 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 ...

... . ' (p . 48) In fact Unison was run by Young and Walker was initially a member of it but quit to start his own group, Civil Assistance when, as he told me in a letter, he could not work out what Young was really up to. Bloom continues: 'Later, in 1975, Young organised Tory action alongside Airey Neave and can be seen in that respect to be one of the secret architects of Thatcher's rise to power. ' It should, of course, be Tory Action; the claim that Neave was involved with Young in this is not sourced by the author;7 and what – if anything – Tory Action actually amounted ...

37. How to Fix an Election [Lobster #43 (Summer 2002)]
... ......works for an Audience Participation Unit whose sole raison d'etre is rigging: getting known Labour sympathisers into audiences which unsuspecting viewers might take as cross-sections of humanity. If Tony Blair was really so shocked by Ms Hurry's excesses, he would close down the unit. But he won't, any more than the Tories would. They are all in this together.

As the Australian crime/politics story unfolds this may turn out to be more interesting than it first appears. And let's hope that McCoy, now living in Australia, is working on that material . RR Thatcher and Friends: The Anatomy of the Tory Party Ian Ross (London 1983) This might have been a very good book, but inclusion in Pluto's 'Arguments for Socialism' series means: no index, no footnotes, and the scantiest of documentation. In some of this series this hasn't mattered too much, but with a subject like this the results are pretty catastrophic. The ...

... an age and the woman who dominated it. Welcome to Britain Without Her...…. Scenario One; the Sea Change: October 26 1978. Guess What? Jim Callaghan listens to his cabinet. They're telling him to take advantage of economic growth and lower inflation and go to the country. The polls show only a small Tory lead of 8 points. It vanishes during a dirty, emotional campaign as Uncle Jim's reassuring presence turns the tide. His appeal rests on one simple question. Are you, the British people, ready to tear up the roots just as things are getting better and trust your nation's destiny to this extraordinary woman? Hardly a socialist question ...

... Conflict (ISC), which has a known intelligence pedigree, links with the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Centre for Policy Studies,(5 ) set up by Thatcher and Sir Keith Joseph when in opposition. The CPS's most important link is to the Campaign For Defence and Multilateral Disarmament (CDMD) which is run and funded by Tory Central Office, and helps distribute CPS literature. Harvey Thomas, Tory Central Office official on the CDMD committee said "We keep in touch with the Coalition. There is a friendly relationship between us" (Guardian 30th April 1983). In reality both committees are fronts with little or no membership. They are both conveniently 'private' ...
