71. Politics and Paranoia [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... being smeared as 'unpatriotic' by the Murdoch-owned media. The Labour Party leadership, then and now, is afraid of tangling with the secret state for fear of damaging their careers. And so the biggest British domestic political story for about 20 years, a story of how elements of the secret state and the Tory Right worked together against the Wilson and Callaghan governments of the 1970s, was spurned by messieurs Kinnock and Hattersley; and instead of talking to me about a campaign to uncover the truth about the 1970s, the Labour Party began its fateful relationship with Peter Mandelson instead. And style triumphed over substance. Advertisement Politics and Paranoia Talks, 1986-2004 Robin Ramsay Picnic Publishing 297 pages ...

72. The once and future king? [Lobster #56 (Winter 2008/9)]
... Newcastle City Council. The documents turned out to be forgeries and there was some initial speculation that a grouping like the Chartists might have instigated the whole thing. It seems reasonably certain that the Short forgeries were the work of some branch of the British secret state and were part of the attempts in 1974-76 to discredit the Labour governments of Harold Wilson. Ted Knight fits perfectly the role of the 'deep entryist' mole who appears to have been 'expelled' from or left an extremist group but actually retains his ties with them. Both Carvel and Hosken speculate that the intention was that Knight would have been the real Leader of the GLC after 1981 had Knight succeeded in getting elected. ...

73. The Cecil King coup plot [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... plot of 1970, and King shared with Borghese significant links to the CIA.(1) In the British version, several of King's co-conspirators seemed to have been media people initially opposed to the preeminent position of the BBC, at a time when the BBC was often accused of left-wing bias. The coup plot came to nothing when the Wilson government's own scientific advisor, Sir Solly Zuckerman, was invited to join the group and managed to persuade a non-too-bright Lord Mountbatten that to participate in such a plot was 'bloody treason'.(2) At the very least, King anticipated the role of Rupert Murdoch in being a right-wing media tycoon who linked his political hostility to the ...

74. Kiss me on the apocalypse! [Lobster #55 (Summer 2008)]
... . In late 1973 Goldsmith, fellow Clermont member, David Stirling, and 'other businessmen' met Peter Wright, an MI5 officer, at the suggestion of Victor Rothschild, a distant cousin of Goldsmith. Wright said that during the meeting Goldsmith stated that a large number of 'significant UK business figures' wanted the expected return to office of Harold Wilson stopped and steps taken to reduce the power of UK trade unions. It is unclear if anything flowed from this discussion. In any event Wilson took office again as Prime Minister in February 1974, but he had no overall majority and the prospect remained of Heath returning as Prime Minister in the very near future. Goldsmith continued to support ...

But none of the reviewers that ...

... many on the left in British public life during the Cold War as being under Soviet influence was the reading from Henry Fielding's Journal of a Voyage to Lisbon. The passage ended with the assertion that 'at sea drowning a cat was the very surest way of raising a favourable wind'. Elwell's energetic attempts to drown figures as varied as Harold Wilson and Chris Mullin continued after his formal retirement from countering 'domestic subversion' as head of F section in 1979. Working with Margaret Thatcher's aide during the miners' strike, David Hart, Elwell used British Briefing according to some sources part-funded by Rupert Murdoch to continue to defame many of his old elected political targets, thus 'raising a favourable ...

... 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. ...

79. Historical Notes [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... (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 (uneasy), an account of Chancellor Jim Callaghan's encounter with the US ...

... 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 of the police in ...
