101. The Labour Finance and Industry Group: a memoir [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... Last | Contents | Next Issue 51 The Labour Finance and Industry Group: a memoir Tim Pendry In March of this year, there was a major scandal over party funding in the United Kingdom. To some of us, this was an accident waiting to happen. In a country with many millions of voters who are allowed to exercise that vote only once every four or five years, relatively small numbers of people belong to those two or three political parties whose struggles eventually decide which person will eventually hold the power of patronage in the State, give orders to civil servants and have a finger perched precariously over a nuclear trigger (assuming that our 'ally' permits the finger to ...

... go to bat for us. '( [18] ) Reagan, unlike Carter, hadn't been born again, and so in evangelical terms wasn't strictly speaking a Christian. (He was also keen on astrology, which is frowned on in evangelical circles in the normal run of things). Nevertheless Reagan appreciated the value of the evangelical vote and recognised that Falwell's organisation Moral Majority could deliver. At a meeting of the Religious Roundtable in October 1979, Reagan famously declared to an audience of evangelical leaders, 'I know you can't endorse me because of your non-profit status, but I endorse you and what you believe'. ( [19] ) His enthusiastic use ...

'The problem is that in the individual countries the politicians have to gather votes.

... its origins in the Workers Party and before that, in Official Sinn Fein, now runs the Party. It has also, quite correctly, secured an electoral pact with Fine Gael, in the run-up to the next election. This necessary compromise is in accordance with what Labour supporters like myself (I still have a residence and vote in the Republic) see as a Gramscian 'war of position', whose long term aim is a Labour government. Against this coalition is the present government, whose Thatcherite policies have led to the squandering of the speculative wealth generated during the 'Celtic Tiger' phase of the economy, left what passes for a health service (no free ...

The theft is a political fact. As the Democratic Party leadership is unwilling to deal with this for fear of being attacked by the media, the ...

' I had gambled a lot on my writing career, and now it lay in ruins. But then, Congress voted to impeach Nixon and the revolution came to Ethiopia on the night the Americans were staging a fashion show in Addis Ababa. Such was their obliviousness. Or their denial. Someone had photographed Haile Sellassie throwing meat to his pet lion, while millions of Ethiopians were starving to death. It was the 'tipping point' of the revolution. ...

He was carrying a laundry basket when we met, so he offered me his forefinger to shake instead of his hand. When I asked who he had voted for, Colin became visibly confused.

... good trade union connections, he had served as Minister for Works in the last six months of the Attlee government. James Callaghan also stood, creating a three-way contest with Brown and Fred Lee. Callaghan had no particular public profile, had not held a significant political post, and was eliminated in the first ballot with a low vote. After the death of Hugh Gaitskell in early 1963, Callaghan stood for leader of the Labour Party. Harold Wilson announced his candidacy from the centre-left; George Brown from the centre-right. By running against Brown (again) Callaghan split the centre-right vote and allowed Wilson to win. Callaghan was eliminated on ...

... pursued much more effectively in alliance with elements of the Left and with faith groups. In addition to the well-told story of the intellectual trajectory of East Coast neo-conservatism from 'Scoop' Jackson to Wolfowitz, there is a more interesting story about electoral transformation. It is probable that this involved a strategic commitment to mobilising domestic ethnic votes within the US in the 1970s in order to ensure the return of a Republican administration prepared to give a free hand to the political warriors. Republican political strategy has been consistent since the late 1970s in mimicking the traditional Democrat model of including waves of new voter groups into its coalition. The triumph of Nixon appears to have been to ...

... would be unwise for him to come out with it too plainly, for fear of scaring off rational Republicans.) A poll of Americans in 1996 showed that 40% described themselves as evangelical Christians, and a quarter believed they were living in the 'end times'. That is a huge number: the equivalent of half of those who vote in Presidential elections. Premillennialism has also, Northcott thinks, influenced American religion more generally, making it much more Manichaean (the 'good/evil' thing), antisocial, crusading and war-like than many other Christian traditions; and tying it with American patriotism in a way that would be impossible almost anywhere else in the modern ...
