Why are women who have lost their babies being investigated for a crime?

Police: why are they wrongly accusing women who have lost their babies of committing crimes?

Women say they have been “traumatised” and left feeling “suicidal” after criminal investigations lasting years in which they were suspected of illegally ending a pregnancy.

It seems they are being victimised for losing their babies after the 24-week window for termination.

Abortions after 24 weeks are only allowed if the woman’s life is in danger, if there is a severe fetal abnormality or if the woman is at risk of grave physical and mental injury.

But of course that does not mean a woman cannot lose her child for natural – and very often tragic – reasons, as the BBC has pointed out:

An unprecedented number of women are being investigated by police on suspicion of illegally ending a pregnancy, the BBC has been told.

Abortion provider MSI says it knows of up to 60 criminal inquiries in England and Wales since 2018, compared with almost zero before.

Some investigations followed natural pregnancy loss, File on 4 found.

Pregnancy loss is investigated only if credible evidence suggests a crime, the National Police Chiefs’ Council says.

Do we believe that comment from the National Police Chiefs’ Council?

We already know that the Metropolitan Police has been found to be institutionally misogynistic. Perhaps the rot has gone further.

This Writer tends to agree with Dr Jonathan Lord of abortion provider MSI, who said: “These women are often vulnerable and in desperate situations.

“They need help, not investigation and punishment.”

Rishi Sunak’s NHS fail in a single social media post

Rishi Sunak in a hospital: he can get in because he can afford to jump the 7+ million-strong queue he and his Tory colleagues have created.

This just about sums up Tory health policy for the last 14 years:

It is as Prem Sikka explained in a speech to the House of Lords (and an article for Left Foot Forward):

The government has reduced access to healthcare.

That was, is and remains the entire point of everything the Tories have done with the National Health Service since 2010 – and is the reason millions have died while awaiting NHS care under their rule.

US government’s hypocrisy over the deaths of journalists in Gaza and elsewhere

Wael Al-Dahdouh: Isrealis murdered this journalist’s family and then shot him. He is still alive, though.

This Site has accumulated a huge amount of information on the genocide in Gaza that I’ve been unable to publish as stories with my own opinion of them – due to time constraints.

Rather than leave them unseen, I’ve decided to publish them – with a caveat that it is up to you to decide what you make of them.

ONS consults on plan to axe data on people who die while homeless. Why hide it?

Frozen: These snow effigies of homeless people were created in 2018 to demonstrate that rough sleepers were freezing to death. Has anything changed since then?

Is this another Tory government bid to hide the effect of its policies on the people of the UK?

It seems the Office for National Statistics is consulting the public on whether to scrap its annual count of the number of people who die while they are homeless.

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

Read the following – and the source article too, if you want more information – and then please take part in the consultation here. It is running until March 5 so please share it with your friends.

Official statistics counting the number of people who die while homeless in England and Wales could be axed despite frontline organisations warning rising homelessness means “now is not the time”.

The ONS count uses death certificates to ascertain whether someone died while homeless alongside modelling to produce an estimate. The most recent count, published in November 2022, found an estimated 741 people died in 2021.

“This proposal does not reflect our view on the seriousness of the issue of deaths of homeless people. However the current homeless deaths statistics have included major caveats around factors including time of death, the definition of homelessness and their alignment with statistics on the total number of homeless people,” an ONS spokesperson said.

“ONS is open to re-establishing these statistics in future, and would value users’ views on their relative importance compared to other health and social care statistics through the consultation currently running.”

The move has faced criticism from frontline homelessness organisations.

Balbir Kaur Chatrik, director of policy and communications at youth homelessness charity Centrepoint, said: “Of the more than 700 deaths in 2021, 31 were under 25, thirteen still teenagers. Youth homelessness has increased significantly since then and we’re worried even more lives will have been lost.

“Statistics alone won’t end homelessness – but without a solid evidence base it will be impossible to tell how far we have to go.”

Again: the ONS consultation on whether it should stop publishing information on people who die while homeless is here until March 5. Please take part and share the link.

Health inequalities ‘caused a million early deaths in England in last decade’

Flowers for the dead: this was for victims of the DWP-led cull of sick and disabled people – just a fraction of the million who died between 2011 and 2019.

The National Health Service – and the government – are supposed to ensure that everybody gets the same level of health care, everywhere in the UK, right?

Explain this:

More than 1 million people in England died prematurely in the decade after 2011 owing to a combination of poverty, austerity and Covid, according to “shocking” research by one of the UK’s leading public health experts.

The figures are revealed in a study by the Institute of Health Equity at University College London led by Sir Michael Marmot. They demonstrate the extent to which stark economic and social inequalities are leading to poorer people dying early from cancer, heart problems and other diseases.

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

Using Office for National Statistics figures, the report’s author, Prof Peter Goldblatt, looked at the life expectancy of people across England who do not live in the wealthiest 10% of areas.

The report, titled Health Inequalities, Lives Cut Short, found that between 2011 and 2019, 1,062,334 people died earlier than they would have done if they lived in areas where the richest 10% of the population reside. A further 151,615 premature deaths were recorded in 2020, although this number was higher than expected because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This next part is particularly disturbing:

Of these deaths, Goldblatt directly attributed 148,000 to austerity measures implemented by the coalition government from 2010 by comparing them with levels seen earlier.

In other words, the Coalition Conservative/Liberal Democrat government of 2010-15 is directly responsible for the deaths of 148,000 people.

When are the arrests going to happen? When will the prosecutions and imprisonments take place?

Yeah, that’s right – they won’t.

And the reason they won’t is that the current UK government is the most corrupt in the history of the nation.

Legendary journalist John Pilger has died

John Pilger: he has passed away but his effect on investigative journalism should last forever.

It’s the last day of a terrible year – and 2023 had one final blow to deal us:

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

This Writer can only agree with and echo the sentiments expressed by Dorset Eye:

We … are in shock.

John was an esteemed journalist who embodied the essence of investigative reporting and activism through his profound commitment to uncovering the truth behind complex global issues. With a career spanning several decades, John carved a niche for himself as a fearless commentator, documentary filmmaker, and author, championing the cause of social justice and exposing the often-hidden realities of power, politics, and human suffering.

Israel has been killing a lot of non-combatants in its Gaza genocide. Here are a few

For a country whose military is said to have been told not to target civilians or workers in the civil infrastructure, Israel certainly seems to have murdered a lot of them.

This article aims to do nothing more than point out a few of them.

Israeli military killed three escaped Hamas hostages while they were waving white flag

Shot by their own side under a white flag (l-r): Alon Shamriz, Samer Talalka and Yotam Haim

This was terrible publicity for the Israeli war machine to start with:

But it only got worse as the victims were named:

For clarity, the deceased were described by the BBC as follows:

Yotam Haim, who was kidnapped from Kibbutz Kfar Aza on 7 October, was a musician who loved animals and cooking Italian food.

Alon Shamriz was also at Kfar Aza at the time of the attack. His family gave permission for him to be named after asking earlier that his identity not be revealed.

Samer Talalka, a Bedouin, was kidnapped from Kibbutz Nir Am. An avid motorcycle enthusiast, he loved to travel in the countryside and spend time with friends.

Even worse, they were shot under a white flag:

An Israeli hostage was waving a makeshift white flag and another called for help in Hebrew when they were shot dead by Israeli soldiers in Gaza who “mistook them for militants”, a military official has said.

A soldier nearby opened fire, the military said, hitting two hostages while the third, who was wounded, managed to escape to a nearby building where other troops heard him crying for help in Hebrew. He was killed by a second soldier before a commander, concerned by the incident, issued a ceasefire order.

Rights groups have said it is almost certainly a violation of international law.

Following news of the deaths, the families of other hostages in Gaza called for an immediate cessation of hostilities and an agreement to secure the release of the rest of the captives saying “every second counts” for those left behind.

One can sympathise with the concerns of the relatives.

It seems clear now that the Israeli military cannot be trusted to follow their own rules of engagement, let alone international law. The remaining 100 or so hostages taken by Hamas (in its own violation of international law) on October 7 are in more danger of being killed by their fellow Israelis than by the so-called Palestinian terrorists who kidnapped them.

But Israeli politicians are most likely to use this tragedy as an excuse to intensify hostilities.

Covid inquiry: Rishi Sunak thought it was all right to let people die

Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak: the Toxic Twins of the UK’s Covid-19 pandemic response.

The man who is now prime minister wanted to “let people die”, according to the Tory government’s chief scientific advisor during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Should the homicidal Rishi Sunak be allowed to continue in office, considering the evidence that he ignored the fundamental duty of every government minister – to safeguard the health and well-being of every single citizen of the United Kingdom?

According to the BBC,

Scientists were not aware of Rishi Sunak’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme until it was announced, Sir Patrick Vallance has said.

Sir Patrick said: “We didn’t see it before it was announced and I think others in the Cabinet Office also said they didn’t see it before it was formulated as policy. So we weren’t involved in the run-up to it.”

He added: “I think it would have been very obvious to anyone that this inevitably would cause an increase in transmission risk, and I think that would have been known by ministers.”

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

Asked about Mr Sunak’s understanding of the risks, Sir Patrick said: “If he was in the meetings, I can’t recall which meetings he was in.

“But I’d be very surprised if any minister didn’t understand that these openings carried risk.”

A diary entry mentioned that at one economics-based meeting Mr Sunak had said “it’s all about handling the scientists, not handling the virus”, without realising that Sir Chris Whitty was in the room.

Mr Johnson’s special adviser, Dominic Cummings, had said: “[Then Chancellor] Rishi [Sunak] thinks just let people die and that’s OK”, according to Sir Patrick’s diary.

Sir Patrick’s diary also said prime minister Boris Johnson was “clearly bamboozled” by the science, as picked up by members of the public:

The verdict is clear – and was delivered by TV scientist Brian Cox:

“The more I hear from the Covid enquiry, the more I think that the PM and the majority of ministers did not have the intellectual tools necessary to understand scientific advice and therefore to be able to weigh it successfully alongside economics, social science etc.

“In my view this can be traced to educational failure – they weren’t taught or didn’t learn the basics of science alongside their chosen disciplines. This also applies the other way round to scientists of course.

“Breadth of knowledge is key, as well as specialisation / expertise, and I don’t think our system delivered that in the 80s and 90s when I (and they) went to University – whether it does that today is an open question. I think we need to be producing more polymaths.”

Well, that’s not going to happen.

We have a government that wants people to be less able to challenge its stupidity – not better-equipped.

The Germans had more right to execute Edith Cavell than Israel to kill this doctor

Killed: Dr Hammam Alloh.

Around 200 medical workers in Gaza have been killed during Israel’s current assault on the enclave, we are told.

Among them is Dr Hammam Alloh, who died caring for patients at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza.

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

A British doctor, Louise Raw, compared his death with that of nurse Edith Cavell during World War One:

But Edith Cavell was arrested and convicted by the Germans for helping allied soldiers escape German-occupied Belgium and enter the neutral Netherlands, which was a war crime according to German law at the time.

Questions have been raised over whether the sentence was legal, but even Miss Cavell agreed that the German authorities had the right to carry out justice over her.

They had more right to do so than Israel has to kill medical staff at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza, in fact – people who have done nothing more than carry out their duty of care to patients there.

Dr Raw is absolutely right to contrast the reactions to Miss Cavell’s death with those to the staff at al-Shifa.

Why was it more objectionable to execute a nurse who was a war criminal than it is to murder medical staff in a facility that it is a war crime to attack?
