Liz Truss is no longer in charge – if she ever was. But who IS?

Liz Truss: she was expected to be a puppet of the right-wing Tufton Street think tanks, but with her policies destroyed, that’s gone. Who does she represent now? And how long will it be until they get rid of her?

It’s very hard to sum up the situation concisely but I’ve found a few videos to help out.

The situation seems clear: Liz Truss’s entire policy position has been dismantled in a day. She has no more influence on politics in the United Kingdom. Jeremy Hunt has been appointed to make the hard decisions. But is he in charge now? Or is someone else?

Here’s Phil Moorhouse:

So Hunt has very little influence but no obvious candidate to take over after he has done the dirty work seems to present itself. Strings are being pulled from the shadows and we don’t know who’s doing the pulling.

Perhaps we’ll find out eventually.

In the meantime, what will happen to Truss?

Here’s the situation right now, according to Sky News:

What does that mean? That she’s safe for the moment because nobody can be found to replace her?

Here’s Professor Tim Wilson:

He thinks Truss has been told to stay put while the grown-ups make the hard decisions. She’ll be pensioned off after being in post for 60 days – is that her pay-off?

Hunt can’t replace her and even the idea that he is prime minister in all but name is an illusion. Penny Mordaunt can’t because she came across as “nasty” in answering the UQ on Monday (October 17).

Rishi Sunak is silent so Prof Wilson expects him to turn up as part of whatever replaces Truss.

Whatever happens, one thing is certain – it won’t have anything to do with the will of the UK electorate.

In the Mother of all Parliaments, democracy is well and truly dead.

Is the UK really the world’s fifth-richest country if its poorest people are destitute?

Wasn’t it Jeremy Corbyn who said the best way to gauge a nation’s wealth isn’t to measure the fortunes of the richest but to check on the well-being of the poorest?

By the former standard, the UK is in fact among the top three countries; by the latter, it is doing very badly indeed. By contrast, Norway is higher than us from the top percentile to the bottom.

If you’re in the UK and have the average income, then by comparison with average incomes across the world, this is only the 12th richest country.

Sadly, this information has been made available only in a newspaper that is aimed at and read by the very wealthy; they get the facts. The rest of us get propaganda from the BBC and the mass media moguls.

You are being conned every which way.

Here’s the video clip that inspired the above:

Bear it in mind:

If you’re in hardship now, you’d be better-off in Slovenia.

The Tory legacy for ordinary people: pawn shops and warm banks

“This is the consequence of voting for Boris Johnson and the Tories: they don’t care about you, they never will, they never have – and until people realise that, nothing is going to change.”

Maximilien Robespierre on the rise of pawn shops and warm banks in the fifth-richest nation on Earth:

Liz Truss is forcing the EU to confrontation over the NI protocol. Or will it wait for a better UK government?

Another ‘grace period’ in which the Northern Ireland Protocol of the UK-EU Brexit agreement is not fully implemented has come to an end and the UK’s Tory government has again failed to respect the deadline.

This means the full effect of the protocol is still not being felt. In the video clip below, Phil Moorhouse argues that the EU has chosen not to formally object because its leaders are hoping the Tories are now in their twilight days and will be removed from power in the UK after the next general election, following which they can have an adult conversation with whoever succeeds them:

It seems that events have already overtaken the clip, in fact. Here‘s the BBC:

The UK has told the EU it will continue delaying customs checks on goods moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, despite legal action from Brussels over the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The EU is considering its next steps.

The EU has launched a series of lawsuits over what it sees as the UK’s failure to comply with checks on the movement of farm produce from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

It has also started legal action over legislation that would allow the UK to alter the protocol, introduced by Liz Truss when she was foreign secretary.

Phil’s opinion that the UK will never agree to end the ‘grace periods’ seems correct. He’s mistaken in believing the EU won’t launch legal action.

So now what?

It’s hard to tell because the EU’s response will be quiet during the period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II.

Considering the aims of the European Research Group (ERG) that appears to be controlling UK Prime Minister Liz Truss, it seems clear that a confrontation is coming that the UK will lose badly. Perhaps it’s better to wait for a more reasonable UK government.

Mind-reading Tory columnist reckoned he knew what the Queen was thinking

Wow. Tory columnist Tony Parsons reckoned Queen Elizabeth II went to Balmoral to die – but also to save the union between the countries of the United Kingdom.

Alternatively: did she just go there because it’s an escape from the rigours of day-to-day life, and she ended up passing away there because it’s where she happened to be?

Here’s a video clip:

These are the people who voted Liz Truss into 10 Downing Street. Watch in horror

This is a real eye-opener.

Politics Joe went to the Tory leadership hustings at the SSE Arena (ironic, that) in London and asked Conservative Party members their opinions on recent events and what needs to be done in the future.

There are some real horrors here – people with whom many would be ashamed to share a homeland.

That being said, there’s support for nationalisation of public utilities – even among Tories, and for an end to reliance on fossil fuels. Watch:

So why is Liz Truss full-on in favour of more privatisation and a return to fossil fuels and pollution?

It seems those who thought she was in thrall to far-right think tanks, the far-right European Research Group, and far-right business leaders may have a point.

Should the UK government be required to improve citizens’ living standards?

Rivers of sewage: the only reason Boris Johnson was able to allow private, profit-making, water firms to fill our rivers and beaches with crap is that Margaret Thatcher privatised the service in the 1980s. Shouldn’t we get better value for our money than he gave us?

Let’s have your views on this.

With energy costs skyrocketing, sewage stinking up our waterways, rail travel prohibitively expensive and food fast becoming unaffordable – while executives of the privatised utility firms are banking grossly-inflated salaries and their shareholders take enormous dividends, it would be easy to suggest that we were all ripped off by Margaret Thatcher, back in the 1980s.

I suggest this because I remember that, every time part of the UK’s infrastructure was sold into private hands, she told us that it would drive bills down, and investment up.

In fact, the opposite has been the case. Investment has plummeted, bills have soared, and profits have boomed because these privatised utilities are, in fact, monopolies.

We can’t live without water; we can’t survive without food; we can’t stay warm without heat, and so on.

It seems to me, therefore, that privatising these services was a gross dereliction of duty by the Tories of the day.

But there is no law telling us that, and therefore there is no requirement for the current government to reverse the situation. Should there be one?

That’s the question I would like to put to you:

Should future UK governments be required to demand the best standard of living for its citizens, while also ensuring they pay the lowest amount of money to get it?

NHS delays, strikes and sewage – also in the news on August 24

‘Your call is in a queue…’: is this guy waiting for the NHS to answer him, now he’s on his way out of his big job?

Politics doesn’t seem to be taking a summer holiday this year, so This Site is falling behind what’s happening – and that would never do!

So here’s a quick round-up of some of the stuff that has also been happening while Vox Political has been concentrating on other things:

NHS 111 delays force patients to wait 20 times longer than promised

Patients calling NHS 111 are being left on hold for 20 times longer than the expected time, data show, as the public is urged to use the service instead of going to accident and emergency.

The helpline for medical advice aims to answer calls in 20 seconds or less on average, according to an NHS benchmark. However, the latest official figures show the average time to answer a call was 395 seconds – six and a half minutes.

It seems the Tories have finally put the NHS on its last legs. If you do get through, but you have a serious problem, what are the chances of being treated when fundholding GPs are incentivised to work on the cheapest and easiest problems first, leaving people with more difficult ailments to wait – or go private and have to deal with doctors who don’t have a clue?

Union admits supply chain will be ‘severely disrupted’ as port workers go on strike

Almost 2,000 workers have walked out of their jobs on an eight-day workers’ strike – the latest in a summer of industrial action.

About 1,900 members of Unite, including crane drivers, machine operators and stevedores, are taking part in the first strike to disrupt the port in 31 years, following a more than nine-one vote in favour.

The union is asking for a pay rise in line with inflation – which currently stands at 12.3 per cent. Workers had previously been offered a 7% increase, as well as a £500 lump sum payment.

Strikers have accepted that their action will severely disrupt the supply chain – which has already suffered deep harm because of the Tory Brexit. It seems Conservative government policy is to inflict shortage after shortage upon the people – in the hope that many of us won’t survive it?

‘Nobody is helping’: Barristers vote for ‘indefinite’ strike starting next month

Criminal barristers in England and Wales have voted in favour of an escalation of strike action.

The Criminal Bar Association (CBA), which represents lawyers prosecuting and defending those accused of crimes in England and Wales, said its members had backed a plan to go on strike “on an indefinite basis” from Monday 5 September.

They join rail staff, teachers and civil servants in backing or considering industrial action over the coming months at a time when pay awards are lagging behind the four-decade high rate of inflation.

The CBA has said its members have suffered an average decrease in earnings of 28% since 2006 – when taking inflation into account – and has accused the government of refusing to engage in negotiations “aimed at finding a fair settlement”.

There is a backlog of more than 60,000 cases, with 6,000 having suffered disruption due to this strike action. The victims’ commissioner for England and Wales, Dame Vera Baird QC, said the action was “the latest symptom of a criminal justice system that is severely and recklessly underfunded” and warned that victims of crime will pay the price and continue to suffer while the government allows criminals to go unpunished.

Sharkey says Government to blame for ‘sorry mess’ of sewage on our beaches

The Government’s failure to control the water industry is to blame for the “sorry mess” of sewage pumped into Britain’s beaches, an environmental campaigner has said.

Feargal Sharkey said three decades of poorly regulated profiteering among water companies and a “vacuum of political oversight” had resulted in a state of “extraordinary chaos”.

Reacting to reports that monitors being used for measuring the levels of sewage in the sea are faulty, he warned that beach-goers have no clear picture of the amount of waste in the water they swim in.

Event Duration Monitors (EDMs) used by firms across the UK either did not work for at least 90% of the time or had not been installed at all, the Liberal Democrats have found.

One has to admire Feargal Sharkey, the former pop singer turned environmental campaigner. His is the voice to trust on the ongoing pollution of our waterways that was precipitated by the imbecilic sale of the UK’s water and sewage systems to private owners by Margaret Thatcher in 1989. Sadly there is no political will to bring this nightmare back under control.

Britons facing prospect of higher food prices after US firm rejects offer to save crucial manufacturing plant

Britons are facing the prospect of higher food prices after a US firm rejected an offer to save a crucial manufacturing plant, an MP has warned.

The shutdown of CF Industries’ fertiliser factory in Ince, Cheshire, is all but complete after a UK-based group of investors failed in a rescue bid. Hundreds of jobs have been lost at the facility.

CF produces 60 per cent of Britain’s CO2 supplies as a by-product of agricultural fertiliser. The gas is crucial in packing and preserving fresh food and salads.

Labour MP Justin Madders, whose constituency includes Ince, said the factory closure means CF has a ‘stranglehold over fertiliser prices in the UK’.

There’s an opportunity here for someone. It seems former Army chief Lord Dannatt wanted to buy the plant but CF didn’t want to sell, which indicates that it wanted to push up CO2 prices – understandable, considering it had a government bailout in 2021 so its finances can’t be particularly good. One wonders how much its bosses and shareholders take home in pay and dividends, though.

And if one fertiliser factory can offer CO2 as a by-product, can’t others do the same? There must be a business model that will work.

Amplifier confiscation destroys all Boris Johnson’s work attacking Russia. Here’s how

Politically closer than comfort allows? Boris Johnson and Vladimir Putin.

Oh what a shame. After all his talk about opposing Russia, someone has pointed out that Boris Johnson imitates the repression of that country.

Labour’s Chris Bryant was pointing out that the removal of ‘Stop Brexit Steve’ Bray’s amplifiers, which he used to protest against the UK’s departure from the EU, was reminiscent of the kind of suppression of the people for which Russia used to be famous.

The equipment was taken under a clause of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act that seems to have been written specifically in order to allow Mr Bray’s equipment to be removed.

In the clip you can hear Andrea Leadsom weakly trying to defend the draconian policy – but even she knows she’s on a hiding to nothing.
