... joined a chorus of protest; previously confirmed participants withdrew from the programme; and both C4 and the television regulator, the IBA, issued press releases within minutes of one another. Finally the C4 Director of Programmes Liz Forgan and I agreed a deal: if a former British prime minister would come on the programme, Adams could appear. Wilson had Alzheimers; Callaghan never liked us; and Edward Heath, who later appeared twice on After Dark,(15) couldn't make it. So that was the end of it. Except that the heightened feelings of that year (the Gibraltar shootings followed by killings at two funerals, 'Death on the Rock', Lisburn, Ballygawley ...

... an action of such overwhelming foolishness and hubris that it makes one question the sanity of the system that permitted it. How can a population of 60 million in the modern age be directed into such a policy at the whim of one man and his coterie? Because our political system has undergone a quiet revolution, that is why. Harold Wilson could defy the superpower on Vietnam not because he feared mass protests but because he feared the cost to his management of the Party. A real conspiracy theorist (which I am not) would see the hand of the US Embassy in the Labour Party's Partnership in Power reforms (4 ) because the State Department was the ultimate beneficiary. ...

The process of withdrawal started with the independence of India and Pakistan (widely celebrated in the UK media recently on its sixtieth anniversary), was confirmed by the failure of the last imperialist fling at Suez in 1956 and reached its coda in the bloody withdrawal from Aden. Even the Thatcher ...

(c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 53) Summer 2007 Last | Contents | Next Issue 53 Historical Notes Scott Newton What was Henry Brandon?One of the most interesting secondary sources covering the struggles of the British Labour government under Harold Wilson to prevent the devaluation of sterling between 1964-66 is Henry Brandon's In the Red, published by Andre Deutsch in 1966. It is a remarkably well-informed text and its reliability is underlined by the official record: most of the key points made by Brandon are supported by recently released papers in the National Archives (formerly the Public Record Office). Highlights are the Wilson-LBJ relationship ...

... by a revival of the IRA." ' According to Burns, the paper presented a scenario 'in which a Labour government, acceding to trade union and other militant demands, radicalised its policies against the private sector and the UK's NATO commitments. ' Burns commented that, The paper] appears to give some credibility to claims made by Mr Wilson, following his resignation, that MI5 contained a group of right-wing officers who were incapable of distinguishing between socialism and communism, and were plotting against the government. ' And how bizarre is MI5's view that the root cause of all the trouble in the UK was Watergate, the CIA and a few spook-spotters and critics ...

... insider s account of the dramatis personae, frank but excessively respectful of the decency of their motives. Margaret George, The Hollow Men, (London: Leslie Frewin, 1965) Was a more detached but damning indictment, and she names the guilty names. But by this time, the Profumo scandal (not coincidentally at Cliveden) and Wilson s Labour election victory in 1963 had displaced concern with raking over the past. Appeasement became just another topic of debate among historians, and the central question of who was actually making foreign policy in Britain was lost sight of. From the 1950s onwards, distraction was provided with the revelations of a rival group of traitors (from Oxford ...

It is possible that his presence is meant to suggest a civilised alternative to the chaos of the time, but the effect can be unintentionally comic: 'Roy wants a coalition government and expects to see one in the first half of this year....Roy said he wouldn't mind whether Wilson or Callaghan led the new government but made it clear he would expect to succeed whichever of them took it on. ' (January 1 1975, p.184) When McIntosh warns Jenkins that a split in the Labour Party would drive even social democratic union leaders into the arms of the left'[Roy] said it was ...

... . Between them they have much academic and practical knowledge. The authors are essentially conservative defenders of the British security and intelligence system. It isn't that they aren't critical; it's just that they don't want to, or are unable to, deal with the reality of that system. In their view of this country's recent history there were no Wilson plots; Northern Ireland is ignored; Cathy Massiter was guilty of 'moralising misrepresentations'; disinformation, I-ops and bureaucratic rivalries are ignored. Intelligence and security organisations are no more or less likely to break the law than any other public bodies, they tell us. (Though how do they know?) All the tales of ...

... Relations, 2006, Vol. 8, pp.214-237. [3 ] It is possible, of course, that the 'Jewish businesmen' story is just that, a story, that Blair received Israeli government money fronted by 'businessmen'. Either way, as has been demonstrated in Bernard Donoughue's Dairies of the 1974-76 Wilson government, reviewed in Lobster 49, Labour, Israel and British Jewish businessmen is not a new story. Now that David Cameron looks like a possible winner, he is starting to attract Jewish donations.

It was really little more than a World in Action half hour from the late 1970s puffed-up, complete with redundant reconstruction of Wilson and Marcia Falkender meeting BBC journalists Penrose and Courtiour (Pencourt). Is the TV audience now presumed to be incapable of watching half an hour of factual material? Do we really need to see James Bolam-as-Wilson staring thoughtfully ...
