21. The once and future king? [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... . Deflected from this they now decided to seize power at the GLC as, to quote Livingstone, 'it has a lot of money and a lot of power' (p. 73). Labour Briefing The vehicle to achieve the seizure of power in London was Labour Briefing, set up in late 1979 to organise 'the left' into voting for a particular slate. Gerry Healy, the leader of the Workers Revolutionary Party, now came to the fore. The connections that had already existed between Knight, Veness and Healy are not greatly remarked upon by Hosken, and, naturally, all participants deny any ill motives; but the man on the Clapham omnibus would at this ...

... is entitled to...an EU which functions like an integrated economic system with a single centre of overall decision making.'( [8]) The ERT has con sistently supported the removal of national vetoes and other forms of 'fragmentation' within the EU. 'The problem is that in the individual countries the politicians have to gather votes.'( [9] )By way of analogy 'The United States could do nothing if every decision had to be ratified by 52 states.'( [10]) At the same time the ERT claims to be primarily interested in the economic consequences of further EU integration, and not be overly concerned with the political consequences ...

... credentials and 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 the first ballot. The point ...

24. Blairusconi: populism and elite rule [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... 'convergence'. But what is ignored in this analysis is (a) the rest of the world, in particular the rest of Europe; and (b) what impact convergence has, in line with the other societal shifts that have happened on democratic culture. Explaining the problem with 'convergence', the late Paul Foot wrote in The Vote, How it was Won and How it was Undermined: 'Labour won the election by another massive majority. But their vote (10.7 million) was dramatically lower not just on 1997. It was three-quarters of a million down on 1992, when Labour lost the election. The Tory vote was down too, and so was the Liberal ...

... the MSM haven't explained it), you could look at the long report showing how the Clinton campaign stole the nomination from Sanders. Yes, stole. 'Available evidence from Arizona, New York, and California suggests more than 500,000 registrations were tampered with or improperly handled....hundreds of thousands of voters were denied the right to vote or were forced to vote provisionally. A quarter million or more provisional or affidavit Democratic ballots were not counted. Available evidence also suggests that the vast majority of suppressed voters would have voted or tried to vote for Senator Bernie Sanders. 1 The IMF's mea culpa Among the casualties of the financial crash of 2007/8 has been the International ...

... the day and a vast, informal propaganda machine was created. This is recounted in some detail from the official files released a few years ago. The author rang me up and in the course of our conversation asked me what I knew about the 1975 referendum campaign. Not a lot, was my reply. Did I know that the votes had all been counted in one place? No I did not: and what possible reason would there be for not using the existing constituency-based electoral organisation? I can think of only one, the one the author suggests: to rig the vote, if necessary. He notes that Cord Meyer was London CIA station chief at this point ...

27. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... Heath's leadership by Margaret Thatcher and Hugh Fraser. The emergence of Fraser a wartime SAS colleague of Clermont member David Stirling was curious, as neither prior to this event nor subsequently did he demonstrate any interest in being leader of the Conservative Party. His candidacy, which allowed Thatcher to look more 'centrist' than she actually was, attracted 16 votes and damaged Heath, who lost to Thatcher by 119 to 130. Was Fraser a spoiling candidate put up to enable a Thatcher victory? Despite his previous statements to the effect that it would be a national disaster etc. to have Wilson return as prime minister, Goldsmith now established a relationship with him. This evolved from the friendship ...

... The innocents B ecause it is such a depressing tale of stupidity and incompetence, I am able to read Tom Bower's new biography of Tony Blair only a few pages at a time. It is the massive hatchet job of which some mainstream media reviewers have complained and others have celebrated. And yet, in the introduction Bower writes: 'I voted for Tony Blair in 1997 and excitedly watched his drive from Islington to Downing Street. Like the majority of Britons, I did believe this was a new dawn. (p. xxiv) 21 See <http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-35345515>. Another journalist, Peter Oborne, for whom I have much time, wrote ...

... by Herbert Morrison, and remained a central part of Labour's electoral strategy from that point onwards, albeit one that might have been neglected. However, possibly due to limited street level political experience on her part, Mattinson lacks a certain perspective while making many of her otherwise correct points. The role of the SDP in disastrously splitting the anti-Conservative vote in 1983 and 1987 is not mentioned at all; nor are the very real difficulties for any major political party, led by even the most gifted leader, to get back into government after a severe defeat (such as suffered by Labour in 1983 or the Conservatives in 1997) under the current first-past-the-post system. In this context, ...

... lines of there having doubtless been an international summit to discuss the enormous problem of the dinosaurs on the Thursday before the dinosaurs became extinct. Much the same could be said about fears of a one-party Conservative quasi-dictatorship. Before too long, the notion would be laughable. Maastricht In early June, the Danes stunned the European political establishment by voting in a referendum against the Maastricht Treaty, signed earlier in the year and providing for both political union (enhanced defence, security and other co- operation) and monetary union, the creation of a single currency, unnamed at that time. Giving the lie to the idea that the European Community was essentially a Cold War institution, ...
