... in 1952. He looked certain to be the Democratic candidate for the presidency. He led Eisenhower in some of the polls. Fixing the convention The only solution the Democratic party machine could come up with was to fix the Convention. On the eve of the Convention, Kefauver could still only be assured of less than half of the 500 votes from the Democratic states he had swept in the primaries. Ironically, Kefauver rejected an offer from the Texas Democrats led by Governor Shivers and Lyndon Johnson, with their financial backers, Carlos Marcello and Benny Binyon, a Texas/Las Vegas cowboy-gangster, to swing Texas his way. The price would have been a deal with the Texas ...

... every anti-Semitic slander, lie and smear. But to no avail. The BUF remained one of the least successful of Europe's fascist movements. Despite its campaign of anti-Semitism in the East End of London, the fact remains, as Dorril points out, that the BUF could not elect a single councillor, let alone an MP. Its highest vote was in Bethnal Green in March 1937 when a BUF council candidate got 23% of the vote. From this point of view, the role of anti-Semitism has to be seen as less one of mobilising popular support than of actually providing the cement holding the BUF itself together; and, moreover, providing Mosley with an excuse for his ...

53. Sailing Close To The Wind (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Issue]
... one can only wish more Labour MPs did similar. What he forgets to mention is that Atos were awarded the contract by the Labour government, not the Coalition. He praises the Blair and Brown governments for 'saving' the NHS, conveniently forgetting that they began the process of privatising health just as they began the privatisation of schools. He voted against these things, of course, but still supported a Labour leadership that was busy entrenching Thatcherism in place when it had a large enough majority to root it out. When the Tories are in power, Skinner embraces 'extra- parliamentary action', but when Labour are in power his opposition seems to be confined to the Commons. ...

... new policy' [Good news boys, we've got it past the politicians.] and IRD was formally announced to 'departments at home' on February 25 1948. And almost immediately it began to slip away from the politicians' concept. In September 1948 the first head, Ralph Murray, suggested transferring part of the costs to the secret vote. 'The need to recruit specialist staff, free from the limitations of civil service pay and conditions' was 'one of the considerations'. More importantly, 'In addition, the move to the secret vote enabled a more flexible use of money, and avoided the unwelcome scrutiny of operations which might require covert or semi-covert means of execution' ...

Obama's voting record in the Senate in the 2004-2008 period demonstrates time after time a voting pattern supporting Big Oil, the insurance industry, the HMO's [health maintenance organisations] etc. The connection between Obama and British Petroleum had been established by his Senate voting record. The same holds for his long association with Goldman Sachs and his reliance on many ...

... 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 ...

The Liberal Party split of 1931 produced a two party system that lasted until 1970 and a faction (the Liberal National Party) that worked in coalition with the Conservatives until 1966 when its surviving members formally joined the Conservative Party. Michael Heseltine was a ...

... Tittle-tattle Tom Easton Friends of 'the Friends' in the North W atching the coverage of the Scottish referendum campaign from south of the Border made me wonder if this is what it must have felt like during the EEC vote in 1975 – the privately- owned media majority marching in one direction alongside the BBC and the big noises of politics, capital and the state. In this case it wasn't fearful warnings about 'missing the European boat', but other terrors – including more real terrorism to come, according to Lord Robertson of Port Ellen – if the Scots voted to let go of nanny London and inch towards the removal of Trident from Holy Loch.1 The ex-NATO Secretary General, ...

To understand, then, the framework within which the US-Israel 'special relationship' operates it is necessary to grasp that much of US foreign policy has always been determined, or at least ...

... , and it may transpire that Alex Salmond has overplayed his hand. The debate, though, about the referendum and the arguments now being marshalled by the 'No' campaign are fascinating. In February, Sir Nicholas MacPherson, the Permanent Secretary to HM Treasury, gave formal written advice to ministers about whether – in the aftermath of an independence vote – Scotland should be allowed to retain the pound as its currency. He argued against, claiming:* Scotland might move to another currency in the longer term (true – presumably the Euro).* The banking sector in Scotland is too big in relation to its national income (true – but isn't that the case for the ...
