About Mike Sivier

When Mike Sivier started Vox Political, he had no idea that he was creating a monster. Disillusioned with the mainstream media after nearly 20 years as a newspaper reporter and editor, Mike had given it all up in 2007 to become a carer for his disabled girlfriend (affectionately named Mrs Mike, she features in many of his posts). He took on some freelance work, but this took a back seat from late 2011 onwards, when Mike started Vox Political. Born from his interest in politics - with an emphasis on people rather than the movement of money – the blog grew from humble beginnings to become one of the most well-read in the United Kingdom. Amazingly, Mike still has some free time. He uses it to perform in a band called the Dodgie Jammers, and to write comic strips including Hard-Boiled Hitler, for the small-press comic he created in 1999, entitled 'Violent!'. On Twitter, he is MidWalesMike On Facebook he has a page: ‘Mike Sivier’.

As Israeli gunboats attack civilians in Rafah, international calls for a ceasefire grow

Here’s the situation in Gaza now:

Other parts of Gaza are still under attack, with horrifying civilian casualties there:

In the UK, entertainers seem to have more humanity than politicians. Former Labour Party member (since expelled) and movie director Ken Loach was among those calling for a ceasefire at the Bafta awards ceremony:

Mr Loach seems to have more in common with Labour voters than that party’s MPs. Polling shows that 83 per cent of them also want an end to the bloodshed with an immediate ceasefire:

But look what happened when Labour MP Thangam Debbonaire was asked if she would support the motion for a ceasefire, due to be debated in Parliament on Wednesday:

Her interlocutor is right; whether a motion gives prominence to the attacks on Israel that took place on October 7 last year is neither here nor there when innocent civilians are being murdered by a heavily-armed military machine.

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva knows this. And Asa Winstanley’s comment therefore seems right on the button:

In the United States, Susan Sarandon, an actress who lost representation by her agent because of her pro-Palestinian position, attended Congress in a bid to stop the US government passing a new Bill to give more money to the Israeli military. Her comments were well-made but This Writer fears they will have fallen on deaf ears because money talks louder:

And in Spain a former government minister there has said out loud that her country, and the United States are complicit in Israel’s genocide through their arms trade agreements with that country:

The tide has well and truly turned on Israel.

But how long will the international community wait before demands for action change into direct action against our intractable politicians by members of the public themselves?

Tories set to lose Uxbridge & South Ruislip – after voters saw through ULEZ deception?

Change of mind: voters in Uxbridge & South Ruislip aren’t happy about being fooled into supporting the Tories, it seems. Polling suggests they’ll switch sides at the general election. But why just swap a useless Tory for a useless Labour MP?

The Conservatives will lose a Parliamentary seat they retained at a by-election – because the electorate is angry that they won it by lying about a measure to stop vehicle pollution in London.

It is widely believed that the Conservatives won the by-election in Uxbridge & South Ruislip on July 20, 2023, by claiming that Labour’s London Mayor Sadiq Khan had imposed the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) on London, where drivers with the most polluting cars pay a fee to travel.

In fact, the ULEZ was imposed in 2013 by a Conservative – the same Conservative whose resignation forced the Uxbridge and South Ruislip by-election to take place: Boris Johnson.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

The implication is that voters in the constituency formerly occupied by the politician who introduced the ULEZ were fooled into voting for his party’s candidate in protest against it:

People don’t like that sort of thing.

But This Writer is mystified as to why they would vote Labour instead.

There will be a number of other candidates for this Parliamentary seat at the general election, and I would advise anybody in the Uxbridge & South Ruislip constituency to consider very carefully what each one is offering before deciding where to place their ‘X’.

I’ve stated it before, and no doubt I’ll do so again:

You simply cannot vote tribally – for the party you think represents you – at the next general election.

Instead – and I cannot stress this strongly enough – if you want your vote to mean anything, you have to actually find out what the candidates in your constituency are planning to do, if they are lucky enough to be elected.

That is what party manifestos are for. Independent candidates also have policy documents and they will all be online for you to find and read.

You need to find and read these policy documents, and then you need to make a dispassionate choice, based on what you have read.

Which of the candidates offers the most policies that fit what you need? And, by that, I mean: who will improve your own life the most?

Do not consider how other people will vote, either in your constituency or the other 649 around the UK. That is not your concern.

It is not for you to worry about which party will get enough votes to actually enact its policies. This will lead you down the usual garden path to voting in a government that won’t do anything at all for the good of the country, like the one we’ve had since 2010.

BE SELFISH. Bizarrely, it might be the only way to get the kind of government that all of us need.

Are the Tories planning to fraud you into thinking they’re cutting NHS waiting lists?

The Conservative government is planning to move 40,000 children from the main NHS waiting list to a less conspicuous one, according to news agency Reuters.

The aim, it seems, is to make the Tories look better before the general election, despite not having achieved their aim to cut the number of people waiting for NHS treatment:

You can read the full article here.

If true, this is an attempt at deception, in order to gain an advantage. Considering the difference between ministerial salaries and the donations that MPs in government receive, in comparison with what opposition MPs get, it’s in order to gain a pecuniary advantage.

In other words – if true – it would be attempted fraud.

Last time I checked, that was a crime.

Has Bono’s political posturing crossed the line?

U2 frontman Bono has always been controversial, but it seems he has crossed a line and is now attracting outright hatred.

The wave of abhorrence has been triggered by an on-stage outburst in support of mysteriously-dead Russian politician Alexei Navalny in prison – which came hot on the heels of enthusiastic support for Israel, in the face of that country’s genocide in Gaza:

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Let’s have a few facts about Navalny:

Strange that Bono would want to praise a neo-Nazi, right after voicing support for a country that claims to be the nation-state of the Jews – a race that Nazis tried to exterminate.

Strange that he would want to support Israel, when its actions against the Palestinians in Gaza resemble those of the Nazis in Germany against Jews.

So perhaps it should not be a surprise that people have reacted as they have:

It’s a genuine shame because This Writer is becoming ashamed to admit I still like some of U2’s music.

Starmer’s dilemma: he’s not an alternative to the Tories and he isn’t even interesting

Stiff as a board: Keir Starmer simply isn’t interesting – and he doesn’t have any policies worth supporting.

The opinion polls suggest a landslide general election victory for the Labour Party – not because Keir Starmer’s policies are any good but because people are so sick of the Tories that any old rubbish will seem better.

It is likely to have the lowest turnout, as a percentage of the electorate, of any election since universal suffrage was introduced, meaning there will be strong arguments that whichever party forms the next government will not have a mandate and proportional representation should be introduced to restore power to the people.

The problem is that any government formed by Starmer will be as right-wing as Rishi Sunak’s, with policies that are indistinguishable from those of Sunak’s administration. In other words, none of Starmer’s policies will work either.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

And the UK’s electorate doesn’t turn out to elect right-wing governments. We don’t like them.

Consider the following:

So election expert Professor John Curtice reckons, “None of [the party leaders] enthuse the electorate, none of them are popular, all of them are regarded as dull as dishwater… So what’s the point of turning out to vote? If we give people a reason to vote, they’ll turn out.”

But people don’t have a reason to vote.

And Ruth Wodak said: “If there is a good opposition, if there’s an alternative programme, you might have a chance [to defeat far-right populism]… One has to provide alternatives, provide more participation so that citizens feel that they are acknowledged and that their worries are being taken seriously.”

There isn’t a good opposition. There isn’t an alternative programme. Keir Starmer has removed all his alternatives and cut back on participation – because, at heart, he is a Conservative cuckoo in the Labour nest.

Oh, he keeps pretending to offer more participation – here’s his current pledge:

But you can be sure it will be withdrawn long before anybody expects it to be put into practice, just like all Labour’s other pledges under Starmer’s leadership.

The UK needs alternatives – and we won’t get them from Labour or any of the other mainstream parties.

That’s why I am advising everyone to actually find out what the candidates in your constituency are planning to do, if they are lucky enough to be elected.

That is what party manifestos are for. Independent candidates also have policy documents and they will all be online for you to find and read.

You need to find and read these policy documents, and then you need to make a dispassionate choice, based on what you have read.

Which of the candidates offers the most policies that fit what you need? And, by that, I mean: who will improve your own life the most?

DWP secretly weakened guidance on suicides after public pledge | Disability News Service

Why would a government organisation secretly weaken its own rules on when to investigate deaths on its watch?

Doesn’t that imply a guilty conscience?

Here’s Disability News Service:

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has secretly weakened its own rules on when it should investigate the deaths of benefit claimants who take their own lives.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Four years ago, the department told the National Audit Office (NAO) that it would always carry out one of its secret reviews when it heard of a claimant’s death if they had died by suicide, even if there were no allegations that DWP’s actions had contributed to that death.

New figures obtained by DNS through a freedom of information (FoI) request show that on at least four occasions in 2022-23, the department failed to investigate when told of the suicide of a claimant.

When asked by DNS why these four suicides had not led to an investigation, a DWP spokesperson said the criteria [were] changed in April 2021, a year after it informed NAO that all suicides of claimants it heard about should lead to an internal process review (IPR) “regardless of whether there are allegations of Department activity contributing to the claimant’s suicide”.

This week’s admission suggests that DWP has taken a significant backward step in addressing the serious and continuing risk to the lives of disabled people, particularly those who pass through its disability assessment systems.

Weekend of protests as conditions in Gaza worsen due to Israel’s genocide

Protests have been happening – not just in the UK but around the world, including Israel – as that country’s genocide in Gaza worsens, and it continues its persecution of Palestinians elsewhere.

Here’s what has been happening in Gaza recently. Be warned – it isn’t easy to see.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

https://twitter.com/AbujomaaGaza/status/1759179315436995009

But Gaza isn’t the only place where Palestinians are being mistreated by Israelis. Read what follows to see Israel’s habitual treatment of Palestinians.

Now consider this: an organisation exists that encourages former Israel Defence Force personnel to confess the crimes they have committed while in uniform or on active duty.

 

 

It should hardly be surprising that protests have been taking place against Israel – across the world, including in Tel Aviv:

Members of the UK Labour Party have no power to stop the genocide in Gaza – other than in voting for the UK to call for a ceasefire during a motion in Parliament. Strangely, they seem unwilling to do this – and so they have attracted what many consider entirely justified criticism.

Meanwhile, in the Netherlands:

In London there was yet another big demonstration over the weekend – bigger, it seems, than BBC News was prepared to admit:

Will any of the above affect the Scottish National Party’s ceasefire vote, that we think will be held on Wednesday (February 21)?

Tories (allegedly) delay compensating sub-postmasters – for electoral gain?

Sub-postmasters: if Mr Staunton’s claim is correct, then the Tory government has been lying about wanting to do right by them.

The now-former chairman of Post Office Ltd has claimed the government asked him to “stall” payouts to sub-postmasters so they could “limp” into the next general election with “the lowest possible financial liability”.

The Sunday Times seemed to have the story first:

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Here’s a snippet from that story:

This Writer couldn’t find the Sunday Times piece online but this is from the GB News version of the same story:

The former chairman went on to allege that he was instructed by a senior civil servant to stall on compensation payments to the Horizon victims so that the government could “limp into the election” later this year with the lowest possible financial liability.

He told the Times: “Early on, I was told by a fairly senior person to stall on spending on compensation and on the replacement of Horizon, and to limp, in quotation marks — I did a file note on it — limp into the election.

“It was not an anti-postmaster thing, it was just straight financials.

“I didn’t ask, because I said, ‘I’m having no part of it – I’m not here to limp into the election, it’s not the right thing to do by postmasters.’ The word ‘limp’ gives you a snapshot of where they were.”

Badenoch’s department have denied the claims and referred to the conversation as “simply incorrect”.

That’s all very well.

But here’s a little lateral thinking on the subject:

That seems to be the size of it.

But I’m curious as to the meaning of this idea that the Tory government would be going into the next election with the “lowest possible financial liability”.

It isn’t as though the Tories would be paying from party funds, making them less able to campaign.

So what’s the fuss about?
