71. 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 ...

72. The politics of the organic movement - an overvie [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... of agriculture, or simply in an unimaginative assumption that food can be taken for granted? Is there perhaps a covert belief that farmers and growers partake in 'the idiocy of rural life' and that their activities are inferior to and less important than those of technologists and media folk? Or is there a liberal unease with the political stance of Tory farmer/land-owners and the reactionary supporters of the Countryside Alliance? These speculations on Marr's reasons for ignoring a major feature of post-war British history may serve as a prologue to the main purpose of this essay: consideration of the political dimension to the organic movement, which has always argued for the national necessity of a flourishing agriculture and for ...

73. I married a war criminal [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... , £18.99 Reviewed by John Newsinger The relentless harrying of Neil Kinnock by the Murdoch press at the time of the 1992 general election outraged Labour Party people, among them Cherie Blair. This was the general election when The Sun proudly boasted that it was its continual ridicule and abuse of the Labour leader that had won the election for the Tories. Indeed, Cherie's anger was such that the Murdoch papers were banned from the Blair household. Today, her autobiography has been serialised in that very same Sun newspaper. It is not The Sun that has changed over the intervening years. But how does her autobiography remember the 1992 general election? There is no mention of the way ...

... 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 ...

... security' 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, 1986-2004 ...

... concentrates on the early formative years of Livingstone's life up until the demise of the Greater London Council (GLC). There is a certain rough justice in this, in that it is this period which continues to define him for many people and provides a great deal of the explanations for his subsequent conduct. Livingstone comes from a respectable working-class Tory family. Until he was 28 he lived at home with his parents who were Conservative Party members and activists. This is not investigated by Hosken, but was previously mentioned by Carvel. Their activism included helping at elections always a key indicator of serious political commitment. They lived in a council flat for a few years in the early ...

... General Election. Yet he and the Labour Party emerged in better shape from the aftermath of the King coup than the plotters. In less than four years time they were back in power. Moreover, as Middlemas pointed out, the government did not suffer a leadership crisis in 1968.(50) Nor did it grow tired like the Tories in 1963-64, or Labour in 1950-51. Indeed by 1968-69 it had developed 'a machine for a powerful and generally coherent policy for industrial change' based on rationalisation, investment in science and technology and in education and training. All this was underpinned by a process of ongoing review of how industrial sectors were adapting to the need to produce ...

The Evening Standard has vigorously promoted for London mayor the candidature of Boris Johnson, a former colleague of Anne McElvoy at The Spectator. The weekly is now edited by the Tory MP's successor Mathew D'Ancona, whose wife, Sarah Schaefer, is senior adviser to Foreign Secretary David Miliband. Johnson and McElvoy are old friends and Spectator colleagues of Anne Applebaum, the St Antony's alumnus who is a columnist on The Washington Post and a member of its board.

... economic base. At some level that Stalinist model always applies; and in this account of our 'experience', not our history, brute economic reality intrudes too little. In Dead Men Don't Eat Lunch (self-published) Geoffrey Gilson describes of his attempt to unravel the life of Hugh Simmonds, his business partner (and political rival in the Tory Party). A solicitor, Simmonds died having apparently misappropriated millions from his clients' accounts. He claimed to have been a member of SIS and Gilson, after much stumbling around the interface between Tory Party, SIS and the arms industry, thinks he has found that Simmonds was using clients' funds to run SIS ops in the ...

... who looked at Britain in the early 1970s and saw chaos, stupidity and systems failure, and wanted to do something about it. He retired, selling the business he had built up and set about 'saving Britain'. He created a plan a kind of flow diagram of how to solve the British economic problem and got it into the Tory Party leadership group, then in opposition under new leader Thatcher. The power of the British trade unions was the central problem he saw and he devised a strategy to reduce it. This was a popular message in the Tory Party of 1977/8 who perceived, or found it useful to claim, that the unions had brought down ...
