81. The meaning of the QinetiQ scandal [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... to advise Brown on welfare reform! If the Thatcher government had appointed someone like her to such a position, Labour MPs would have been outraged. Today, barely a murmur. There were some protests about the QinetiQ scandal. Mark Serwotka of the PCS union described the affair as 'obscene'. It was condemned by various Liberal Democrat and Tory MPs, and even by the odd Labour MP. The government, however, defended it as a 'good deal' for the taxpayer. Indeed, Lord Drayson, then the Minister for Defence Procurement, actually described it as 'a model for future privatisations'. The government attitude was perhaps best shown by the fact that far from being ...

82. A Century of Spin, reviewed [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... began a long time ago.) We get two excellent chapters on the demise of the left and the rise of the right in the Labour Party, both similar in approach though not in detail, to the views expressed in these pages over the last decade. More interesting to me (because less familiar) was the chapter on Cameron's Tories. This, I realised with surprise, is the first serious analysis of the Cameron group that I have read. Their links are very similar, of course, to those of NuLab's leadership. Why would they differ? Both groups of politicians are pro-American, pro-Israeli, pro-globalisation, pro-free market, pro-nuclear, pro-EU and pro-destroying the public ...

... would sit down with sworn political enemies. One of our team, seeking advice on how best to construct a balanced group of discussants, asked a previous guest, the 'terrorism expert' Professor Paul Wilkinson of Aberdeen University. All hell broke loose as Wilkinson decided to go public. He attacked the proposal to have Adams on the programme; Tory MPs, including Mrs Thatcher's parliamentary private secretary,(14) joined a chorus of protest; previously confirmed participants withdrew from the programme; and both C4 and the television regulator, the IBA, issued press releases within minutes of one another. Finally the C4 Director of Programmes Liz Forgan and I agreed a deal: if a former ...

... or right-wing but because Conservatives may seem to be able to offer a better deal in meeting the essential requirements of defence of the realm, economic stability and the ability to preempt and handle disasters. Indeed, New Labour may still pull a rabbit out of a hat and be returned to power which really would be a damning indictment of the Tory or, indeed, any alternative. But what if New Labour's drive for power over a decade ago has broken the system more fundamentally? What if all it has done is to demonstrate that every generation of the political class under our current party-based parliamentary democracy, not just this one, has done nothing better than lurch from crisis to ...

85. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... for Goldsmith's intervention Blair would have had a smaller majority.(6) However this does not take into consideration any indirect effect amongst the electorate as a whole caused by Goldsmith, the Referendum Party and the Bruges Group from 1989 onwards, and particularly from 1993-1997. The loss of morale amongst many Conservative supporters and the subsequent failure of many Tories to vote at all is difficult to measure; but it seems reasonable to assume that the division on Europe that was openly displayed and exploited by Goldsmith cost John Major many votes. Goldsmith may have helped to cause a severe Conservative defeat in circumstances that would otherwise have resulted in a hung parliament. The other Goldsmith During the years that ...

86. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... time proved more durable. It led to the Downing Street Declaration of 1992 and the deliberate scuppering of the Combined Loyalist Military Command who wanted to close down sectarian killings and take out the IRA leadership.(31) At every turn, despite the myth that the political right are the natural allies of Unionism in Britain, it was a Tory administration that made the concessions to the IRA but did so behind the backs of Northern Ireland's population and the wider British public. If the British government was initially ambivalent as to whether Sinn Fein would form part of a bourgeois administration in Northern Ireland, then this didn't apply to John Hume the initial architect of permanent coalition government in Northern ...

87. The rise of warfare capitalism [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... in his highly readable book is a process whereby a capitalism too decadent to produce ideas of its own looks to a decaying Stalinist Broad Left to sustain its hegemony. This is actually more evident in Britain than the US and, indeed, much of Marshall's book concerns itself with the British situation. Here, New Labour has completely replaced the Tories as the main party of British capitalism by hijacking the historical Labour Party in violation of its own constitution. But while Tony Blair had almost zero experience of labour movement politics and was certainly no intellectual, those who theorised and rendered the process possible in terms of a Gramscian war of position or construction of a hegemony were former members of ...

... Spinwatch. Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St Clair have for years edited the US-based political newsletter CounterPunch. So from which of the above, do you reckon, do we get this? 'I gradually became aware that the conventional narrative structure which is used to give sense and meaning to British politics was extremely misleading. Though the public is told that Tory and Labour are in opposition, that is not really the case. They are led to believe that the Liberal Democrats are an insurgent third party, but that is not the case. It has come to seem to me that their strongest loyalties are to each other.' Oborne's denunciation of the way the 'Political Class' is ruining ...

... who later gives a talk at St. Paul's Cathedral: 'I've never heard him speak down to anyone', he notes, not, presumably, expecting any reader to demur. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Glass records his return to London with an observation that needs to be repeated: 'The Labour apparatchiks swallowed whole the late Tory view that the public does not exist.... everyone is a customer; all services and professions are businesses.' The public did seem to exist as protests against any intervention in Iraq increased, but it was ignored. Its spokespersons, accused by supporters of the invasion of belonging to a left that no longer welcomed the ...
