Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter. Aged book. Please note this book is over 20 years old. It will therefore have tanned pages, age spots and plenty of shelf wear. However, for its age it is still very useable, and a great read.

Product description


The Rise of New Labour? How did that happen? As everybody knows, Labour messed up the economy in the 1970s, went too far left, became 'unelectable' and let Mrs Thatcher in. After three General Election defeats Labour modernised, abandoned the left and had successive landslide victories in 1997 and 2001. That's the story they print in newspapers. The only problem is...- New Labour in 2001 got fewer votes than 'old' Labour did in 1992. - It wasn't Labour who messed up the economy in the 1970s but the Tories. - The Labour Party was handed to the left in 1983 by a conspiracy involving the Labour MPs about to defect to the Social Democratic Party. The real story of the rise of New Labour is more complex, and it involves the British and American intelligence services, the Israelis, and elite management groups like the Bilderbergers. Robin Ramsay untangles the myths and shows how it really happened that Gordon Brown sank gratefully into the arms of the bankers, Labour took on board the agenda of the City of London, and that nice Mr Blair embraced his role as the last dribble of Thatcherism down the leg of British politics.
