31. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... 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 ...

... 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 ...

(22) The Save London Alliance fielded 98 candidates in 12 boroughs declaring that they were 'trying to end the current system of party political involvement in local politics. ' (23) Their impact was significant. Save London Alliance candidates attracted enough votes to affect the results in Ealing (a borough Labour lost), Wandsworth (a borough Labour lost and where Paul Ekins, now of Green Alliance, ran for the Save London Alliance) and in Westminster. The biggest upset came in Hammersmith and Fulham where the Save London Alliance put up 18 candidates. Their intervention resulted in a ...

... more so in the political domain where complexity prevails. What we want politicians to deliver is usually going to be markedly different from what we want out of a can of Coca Cola. The underlying assumption of focus group research is that what (sometimes) works for consumer markets must be transferable to the political market place, since casting a vote is a matter of individual choice, like having a preference for a soft drink. Political focus groups are thus an important part of turning politics into a consumerist spectacle. On his own account, Peter Mandelson did not involve Labour Party members (or trade unionists) in his 'thorough examination of the state of mind of Britain's voters' ...

... 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, ...

37. Atlantic Crossings [Lobster Special Issue: The Clandestine Caucus (199]
... Europe in the immediate post-war years were, mostly, on the liberal or centre left; the European right was, mostly, nationalist. In France De Gaulle opposed US capital. (And the CIA was to help finance the OAS against him.) In Britain it was the nationalist Tories and some of the socialist left who voted against the Marshall Plan in the House of Commons. The US government only had one operating criterion where a foreign government was concerned: is it willing to allow US capital in or not? It was called anti-communism, but it was also anti-nationalism. Yes, it was precisely 'Taking the teeth out of British socialism ...

... 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 ...

... England, underpinned with advertising from the US Evangelists, The Radio Church of God, who paid £300 per week for a nightly slot (£ 30,000 today). Just how eclectic its tastes were became apparent in April 1967 when Radio 270 gave up a significant part of its air time to political broadcasts – advocating that people vote Conservative in the May 1967 municipal elections. These broadcasts were made by Patrick Wall MP – who also spoke frequently on air in favour of supporting the Ian Smith government in Rhodesia and the Apartheid regime in South Africa. Harvey Proctor – then chair of York University Conservative Society – hosted a regular 30 minute 'current affairs' programme on Radio ...

... 12.99 In his memoir, In Office,(1 ) Norman Lamont describes meeting Wim Kok, the Dutch Finance Minister, at one of the many European Union meetings Lamont attended in his roles as Chief Secretary to the Treasury and then Chancellor of the Exchequer. On the question of whether or not European electorates should be asked to vote on joining the single currency, Lamont quotes Kok as saying this: If we let Parliaments interfere (sic) in this matter then they may vote against the single currency and Europe will never find its destiny. (p .123) Ah, yes, destiny. (Better yet, Destiny.) I'm one of the people ...
