News: Cranwell Warns Against Enemies of the State

8th November 1988: Prime Minister James Cranwell warned the British people against "enemies of the state, both within and without" in a television address on both BBC and ITN. The speech, in response to the increasing pressure from the United States over its UK bases, the "Generals' Mutiny" and alleged planned coup, set forth the Prime Minister's defiant line against the increasing pressure on his government and his promise that "undemocratic imperialist forces will not overturn the will of the British people".
