The American hard Right are coming to the UK – and Europe. But, unlike in Hungary, where the gathering of Europe’s extreme-right figures (including the prime ministers of Hungary and Georgia) was an offshoot of the Trump and Bolsonaro supporting US Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the National Conservatism conference in the UK is a project backed by the Washington-based Edmund Burke Foundation. The NatCon participants may not be so brazen in supporting white nationalism as their counterparts in CPAC, but their preoccupations with ‘faith, flag and family’, birth-rates and ‘traditionalism’ also speaks to an Alt-Right and Christian conservative agenda. Several of the organisations represented at NatCon, such as Policy Exchange, the Common Sense Society, Free Speech Union and the Legatum Institute, have been linked to the Atlas Network, an integrated pro-corporate network which grew out of the UK-based Institute of Economic Affairs and has received funding from US billionaire and right-wing libertarian Charles Koch.

60 Minutes Australia has been playing a leading role in saturating Australian airwaves with consent-manufacturing messaging in support of militarising to participate in a US war against China. A segment they ran a year ago is titled "Prepare for Armageddon: China's warning to the world," and features an image of Xi Jinping overlaid with war planes and explosions and captioned "POKING THE PANDA". Another from a year ago is titled "War with China: Are we closer than we think?" Another from ten months ago is titled "China's new target in the battle to control the Pacific." Another from six months ago is titled "Inside the battle for Taiwan and China's looming war threat." Another from two months ago is titled "Is the Navy ready? How the U.S. is preparing amid a naval buildup in China."

Washington D.C., May 25, 2023 - The National Security Archive today marks what would have been Anatoly Sergeyevich Chernyaev’s 102nd birthday with the publication for the first time in English of his Diary for 1983. At the time, Chernyaev was deputy director of the International Department of the Central Committee responsible for the International Communist Movement (ICM). Within three years, he became the chief foreign policy adviser to Mikhail Gorbachev and a leading theorist in the era of perestroika and glasnost.

Next Monday, an uneasy anniversary arrives. It will be 20 years since the invasion of Iraq by the United States. Britain was a pillar of the US-led ‘coalition of the willing.’ The Guardian columnist John Harris wrote on Sunday that it was “the greatest political and humanitarian disaster the UK had been involved in since the second world war… when the supposed political centre ground suddenly lurched somewhere reckless and catastrophic.”
