82. 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 ...

... undermine his government. Putting together this plot and the context in which it took place is the bulk of this essay. A number of threads make up the background. There was the war in Northern Ireland, and the economic crisis generated by the Heath/Barber 'dash for growth' and the political reaction to it from sections of the Tory Party and their allies in capital and the Secret State. By late 1973 people on the right believed that they were witnessing the end of British democracy, the 'British way of life' and everything. Heath and co. ended up taking on the miners for the second time (and losing); and fighting a 'Who rules? ...

... ISC report regaled Observer readers with a long catalogue of examples of 'extremists' in industry with the Communist Party of Great Britain well to the fore. (A similar piece appeared contemporaneously in The Economist, although not attributed to ISC.) (18) Another operation on the right at this time was being run by Geoffrey Stewart-Smith, the Tory MP for Belper (1970-74). After leaving the British Army, Stewart-Smith had set up the Foreign Affairs Circle in 1962 and began publishing the East-West Digest, a hard-line anti-Soviet journal which was sent free to all MPs. (We don't know yet who funded this venture.) East-West Digest was published by Stewart-Smith's Foreign Affairs Publishing Company ...

... by group around her. The CRD was then headed by Heathite Chris Patten. As a former, albeit junior 'insider', Ranelagh has had access to almost everybody who matters-- except Mrs Thatcher. The result is a fascinating account of how a tiny group of people, with a handful of elementary, core ideas, captured the Tory Party-- and its attendant media. Much of the book is directly sourced to interviews with key individuals of the period, and even the bits attributed to 'close advisor' and 'close colleague' et al, contribute to the 'feel' of the period. On almost every page there is something of interest-- and, on ...

86. Branson (Book Review) [Lobster #43 (Summer 2002)]
... something for which Sir RB can be personally held responsible. Despite this, the point that the hippy businessmen of the 1968 generation often became the most ruthless capitalists is well made. Having made his millions in music and become regarded as both a spokesman for youth and a great British entrepreneur Branson was duly courted by various UK politicians. The Tories liked him; later New Labour liked him, too. His astutely managed PR battles with British Airways made some think that Branson could (and would) provide cut price air travel. This never really materialized as far as most people were concerned and it would be Easyjet, a decade later, who finally provided such facilities for the ...

... players, 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 ...

88. Mark Lewis and ¸the ultimate hacker' (Summer 2012) [Lobster #63 (Summer 2012) (free)] [Free Issue]
... police say the murder case cost Chris More senior £350,000. His technical ability is legendary. A former World in Action reporter at Granada Television remembered More as 'The Ultimate Hacker' and stated that during the legal battle between Jonathan Aitken MP and The Guardian, Chris More played to his prospective clients recordings of telephone conversations between the Tory defence procurement minister and his daughter Victoria. Aitken's case against The Guardian and Granada TV collapsed after the production of evidence that Aitken's wife had not paid for him to stay at the Paris Ritz. Aitken was jailed for perjury in 1999. Chris More had worked on investigations for News International for over 20 years, retained by their solicitors ...

... subscribed to this opinion was Lord Holden of the Midland Bank, who, along with Aberconway, had gone to meet Goering in the abortive attempt at mediation made in August 1939. (70) Within the Cabinet Halifax and Hoare identified themselves particularly strongly with Chamberlain's line, as did Rab Butler, the deputy Minister at the Foreign Office. Tory grandees such as the Duke of Westminster and Lord Londonderry, and the Duke of Buccleugh, brother-in-law of the King, were anxious about the future security of the British Empire should Britain become entangled in a continental war, emerging either defeated or vastly diminished in wealth, and they continually pressed for a quick conclusion to the war.

... 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 ...
