61. Thatcher versus the City of London (Winter 2010) [Lobster #60 (Winter 2010) (free)] [Free Article]
... City and the Bank of England into passing the Competition and Credit Control Act, which allowed the British banks to massively expand their lending, caused the secondary banking crisis of 1973/4 and was one of the causes of the inflation of the 1970s (which reached 25% in 1975). That inflation became a stick with which the Tories beat Labour and unions in the 1974-79 period and beyond, 98 Winter 2010 and a section of the Tory right beat the Heathites. Mrs Thatcher and her faction promised to defeat inflation by 'controlling the money supply'. Mrs Thatcher seems to have assumed that 'controlling the money supply' could be done relatively easily and quickly, ...

... 1 6 Although he had studied economics at Oxford as part of his degree, events would show that he had little understanding of the British economy. In the first year and a half of his government he appeared to believe that the best way to prepare the British economy for EEC entry was a dose of competition and freedom – the traditional Tory Party ideas of getting the government off the backs of the producers, reducing taxation and so forth. In his innocence Heath seems to have believed that British capital was merely waiting for their cue from central government, and would rush to invest in the British economy. But they didn't and Heath took to berating those he thought should be ...

Instead, the reader is dropped straight into a narrative in which she deplores how 'out of touch' Labour were with 'ordinary people' 33 Winter 2010 in the 80s (which may have been true at that point), without demonstrating that Thatcher and the Tory right were ever more 'in touch' or commanded a consensus of views (they didn't), or that Thatcher would have won so easily without the SDP. Although Mattinson's admiration of Kinnock is clearly genuine, as well as omitting the very basic electoral arithmetic that ultimately explains his failure to win in 1992, she also fails to address ...

... a disaster'. Michael White and Simon Hoggart offer their usual sketch-writer smart-ass vacuity. Wintour conscientiously harvests the Lord Mandelson line that has so well rewarded him for a quarter of a century, and there are articles of disappointment and disillusion from the Guardian leader-writers' office populated by ex-Communists like Kettle and Tories like Julian Glover. Is there anything of substance in the Hughes collection? Two names lay claim to some thoughtful analysis: Larry Elliott and Andy Beckett. Elliott has been a consistent critic of neo- liberal orthodoxy on the business pages for the lifetime of New Labour. Beckett, who caught up with the British American Summer 2010 188 ...

... to raise concerns about the exotic financial instruments and other reckless behaviour which led to the banking collapse of 2008? They were at best simply drawing their salaries whilst doing as little as possible. 78 Summer 2010 The truth is that non-execs in the vast majority of cases are no more than PR wallpaper. The case of the former Tory Minster, John Wakeham, is instructive. Wakeham is an accountant by training with considerable commercial experience before he went into politics. Not only did he accept a non-exec directorship with Enron, he also agreed to chair Enron's audit committee. In theory, Wakeham was the ideal non-exec. He had particular expertise (accountancy ...

... the proposed location of Mosley's station. 36 Summer 2010 Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia and ceding it to Germany.2 Following the involvement of Wellesley in its affairs, Radio Luxembourg broadcast strongly pro-appeasement material throughout the Munich crisis. The existence of Luxembourg as an 'offshore' station for the Chamberlain government was thus extremely convenient for the pro- appeasement Tories who could use it for this purpose when the BBC – which was supposedly impartial and above politics – could not. Another benefit that flowed from using Radio Luxembourg as an organ of British propaganda on the status of the Sudetenland was that its broadcasts were clearly 'deniable' as representing the views of the Chamberlain government. In 1940 the powerful ...

Conspiracy theorists say that the Army, mobilised at Heathrow apparently for anti-terrorism training, was preparing a military take-over under the command of Mountbatten and senior intelligence staff. Wilson himself was suspicious of the Army display at Heathrow but to my knowledge no 'conspiracy theorists' ...

... in seeking any sharp observations on British politics. Those who remember the Callaghan government and the rise of Thatcher may recall Williams and other Labour right-wing ministers vociferously rushing to the defence of one of their number, Reg Prentice, faced with deselection. Prentice subsequently switched parties – probably the highest ranking Labour figure ever to defect to the Tories – but he doesn't rate a mention in these memoirs. There are lots of similar gaps. There's nothing, for instance on the union block vote that kept the Labour right in charge of the party for much of the Cold War, and only passing references to important figures. David Sainsbury, for example, was a key funder ...

... the subject. ' (p . 356) Beckett doesn't do these parapolitical themes justice: but not because he is unaware of them, I suspect. He just isn't willing to offer them to the general reader at whom his book is aimed. It is mostly the familiar picture: Heath's failure and the 3- day week. The Tory right gives us Thatcher and the arrival of the ideas of Institute for Economic Affairs at the door to No 10. Oil is on the horizon, feminism is growing, the eco movement begins; and there is the struggle between the left and right. There is a long account of the Grunwick strike, including an interview with John ...
