51. RIP 'The Fourth Decade & Probe' [Lobster #41 (Summer 2001)]
... -liberalism in the context of the King and Kennedy assassinations? I hope not. Assassination - normally of indigenous people in far-off places like Chiapas - is a powerful tool for keeping people toeing a certain economic line. At the low end of the neo-liberal scale, for example in Mexico, democracy works like this: vote for the PRI or PAN and have some waterproof cardboard to roof your shack; vote for the PRD and we'll kill you. Higher up the social scale there is more money, and a greater variety of forms of cooption. But the neo-liberal system reserves the right to eradicate those who want to change it -- even ...

52. The View from the Bridge [Lobster #46 (Winter 2003)]
... of 14 October, 'Fears of more US electoral chaos after flaws are discovered in ballot computers' by Andrew Gumbel (5 ) was the major media tip of an enormous iceberg, most of the rest of which is on the Web. The headline story is simple: the Republicans are preparing to steal the next presidential election in the computerised voting machines that are being introduced. They won't need all that crude gerrymandering and those partisan Supreme Court judges in future. And the Democrats are so afraid of the media that they are going to let them do it. The British system of bits of paper collected and counted in public may be cumbersome but it makes it very hard to ...

... sec-has-been- destroying-invest> 10 <www.amazon.com/review/RT4NX1OJ1ZFVS/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt# RT4NX1OJ1ZFVS> The interesting thing is that the Wall Street-Obama connection has been available for anyone to discover who is a regular reader of mainstream newspapers and magazines. 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 ...

... 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 ...

... The fabric of British democracy In Lobster 18 Gordon Winter referred to British state personnel accessing ballot papers. Winter reported the papers kept in locked metal boxes. Not so, writes David Northmore, referring us to the piece in the Independent (20 August '88). From being a local election agent, I know that Winter's account of the votes being put into bundles by party is true. But at the vote counting the ballot papers were put into locked metal boxes. At some point they must be transferred to the paper sacks for disposal. This is presumably done so that the metal boxes can be used in the next election; and there are now municipal elections every year ...

56. Fascism: Theory and Practice (Book review) [Lobster #38 (Winter 1999)]
... just a sliver of evidence? As is usual with someone who has little knowledge of the Far Right (but worrying in someone who affects such a knowledge), Renton shows no understanding that between the election of British National Party Councillor Derek Beackon in late 1993 and his loss of the seat in mid-1994, the British National Party vote actually increased. Beyond these shores, when it comes to contemporary fascism, he is equally ignorant, showing not that slightest grasp of the predominant organisational form the Far Right takes in the US (p .11); and he is just as remiss in the case of contemporary Germany. On p.8 he draws attention to ...

... is risible. But it is also more than that. To a great extent it is these same crazies who elected the Straussians' patrons to power in 2000 and 2004; against their own obvious material interests, as it seems to most of us, including Thomas Frank. (We used to call it 'false consciousness'.) Chickens voting for Colonel Sanders is one thing; when Colonel Sanders then goes out and bombs the world to bits, however, it gets serious. It is time to stop being superior, and (again) try to understand it. That is Frank's aim. He concentrates on the state and city of Kansas for two main reasons. The ...

58. Sailing Close To The Wind (Book Review) (2015) [Lobster #69 (Summer 2015) (free)] [Free Article]
... 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. ...

... 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 ...

... 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 ...
