... weight by his having served as a Treasury Minister under Labour's first post-war premier. Major enjoyed not one but two periods of extraordinarily high approval ratings. The first followed his arrival in office, the second his surprise general election victory in April 1992. Between the two peaks was a deep valley of unpopularity, occasioned by the second Tory recession in a dozen years. As Mr Turner notes:'[T ]he assumption was that Labour were the favourites to win. ' Well, indeed. The Tories were fighting on far more hostile terrain than five years earlier, when tax rates had been falling and Britain was booming. In fact, the economy in downbeat ...

52. Asil Nadir: another victim of the arms-to-Iraq conspiracy? (Winter 2013) [Lobster #66 (Winter 2013) (free)] [Free Article]
... . Michael Mates MP was a Conservative Northern Ireland minister from 1992 to 1993 until forced to resign after the publication of a letter he had written to the attorney-general in support of Asil Nadir. Mates was a poll tax rebel and a key figure in the removal of Margaret Thatcher. He had given a watch to Nadir, a Tory donor, engraved, 'Don't let the buggers get you down'. Mates was a defence witness at Nadir's 2012 trial and later last year, when he was runner-up in an election for police and crime commissioner in Hampshire, he said of his support for Nadir: 'Every single thing that I alleged when I was taking up ...

... 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 ...

... government's economic policies did precisely 'erode the industrial base of our economy and threaten its social and political stability'. Osborne and Cameron had also been much impressed by the experience of Canada where large cuts in state expenditure had been followed by economic revival. In 2010 The Telegraph ran a report, 'Coalition government: the Canadian cuts model that the Tories wish to emulate' on the Canadian government's experience in the early 1990s of cutting state spending by 20% more or less across the board in response to a large state deficit.16 In his Mais Lecture in 2010 Osborne referred to Canada - and also to the experience of Sweden and said: 'As Goran Persson, the Social Democrat ...

... right up to the moment of decision. What Katie – or rather, Clem, Anthony, Harold and the rest – did next is for other books to cover, as indeed they have. The concentrated nature of the material yields some marvellous anecdotes and demolishes a few myths along the way. Thus those to whom the pre-Thatcher Tories were suave internationalist moderates may be surprised to learn that Selwyn Lloyd, Foreign Secretary at the time of Suez, 'spoke no foreign languages, had never been abroad except in wartime and did not like foreigners'. By contrast, Eden was 'an Arabic speaker with a deep knowledge of Middle Eastern history and politics, and had a long ...

... Another of the corporatist groups financed by Midlands industrialists, the British Commonwealth Union (BCU), led by the Birmingham MP, Sir Patrick Hannon, began funding MPs to form an Industrial Group in Parliament. The first 11 candidates were subsidised by the BCU in the 1918 election: by 1924 the group in parliament consisted of 105 (mostly Tory) members. Hannon's Industrial Group chiefly wanted government protection of British industry against foreign competition, but, to quote Hannon, they also 'wanted the largest measure of freedom in the relationship between capital and labour and the least state intervention possible. '6 These early corporatist dreams failed for a number of reasons. Employer organisations were none too ...

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 ...

... Direct Action, Issue #16 Autumn 2000 Lobster #39 Summer 2000 214 Westbourne Avenue, Hull HU5 3JB Lobster is the near legendary brainchild of Robin Ramsey, which deals with cover-ups and conspiracy theories within the corridors ofpower. Previous editions have dealt with such issues as American and Tory intervention in British unions, New Labour and the spooks, JFK, and plots by MI5/6 /CIA. That's not to say that Lobster is pandering to the audience forever more bizarre conspiracy theories. There are no stories like "aliens ate my hamster" or "JFKs brainfound on Mars" or other such weirdness beloved of the underground Fortean style press. This publication is ...

... Tony Blair at a Labour Friends of Israel bash and wouldn't have a word said against him. But setting my experience aside, I find Mattinson's reasoning – 'how New Labour stopped listening to the voter' – weak, and her prescriptions for a 'new politics' unconvincing. Like many New Labour leading lights she dismisses the catastrophic collapse of the Tories under John Major. And what was New Labour, after all, other than a 'new politics'? It's sad, but not surprising, that a party's fate was in the hands of the likes of those so insubstantial as Mattinson, and that The Sunday Times serialisation of this book generated more media heat than light on the dead ...

... 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 ...
