Who will Labour choose to follow Gordon Brown?

It seems Gordon Brown is to retire from his career as a member of Parliament at the 2015 general election. This presents a challenging dilemma for the current Labour leadership, which has announced that it wants to take over the selection process for replacement Parliamentary candidates if MPs stand down late. You see, Mr Brown is MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath – in Scotland. Labour is extremely unpopular in Scotland at the moment, where the SNP has whipped up a belief (rightly or wrongly) that the party betrayed the people by…

#CameronMustGo: Thanks for taking the flak, Jack…

… But you really didn’t deserve what you got. For those of you who aren’t in the know, Jack Monroe (she of A Girl Called Jack blog fame) has come under attack from pro-Tory Twitter users after she tweeted, as part of the #CameronMustGo drive, the following: The Huffington Post, reporting on the hashtag drive, told us: “Some tweets directed against Cameron were deemed too far. Guardian cookery writer Jack Monroe faced criticism for a tweet accusing the PM of using the memory of his dead son to further his…

Sincerity in the face of adversity (Mr Cameron, take note)

Do you ever have moments when you think you’ve said something the best way you can, and then someone else comes along and does it better? In this case, the words come from an unexpected source – and from beyond the grave. Last week this blog ran a couple of articles attacking the way David Cameron, in his speech to the Conservative Party conference, used the memory of his late son Ivan to attack the Labour Party’s stance on the National Health Service. Some readers took exception, and it is to…

If you hate Cameron’s treatment of the NHS and disability benefit claimants, share this

Following on from today’s article about David Cameron’s shameless use of his late son to score political points on the NHS and disability benefits, the thought occurred that a 1,500-word article might be a little much for some busy people to take on board. Here’s an image that will hopefully get the point across far more quickly. Please feel free to share it anywhere you feel it may do some good.   Follow me on Twitter: @MidWalesMike Join the Vox Political Facebook page. Vox Political needs your help! If you…

Cameron’s cynical use of his late son is enough to turn anyone’s stomach

A commenter on the Facebook group provoked right-wing wrath after David Cameron’s speech yesterday by posting a photograph of a tearful-looking Samantha Cameron and suggesting that even she was embarrassed that he was using the memory of his late son Ivan – yet again – to support his ever-more-desperate claim to be a supporter of the National Health Service. In the name of balance, Yr Obdt Srvt responded as follows: “Cameron has again and again put the treatment of his child front and centre during discussion of the NHS – a…

POLL: The BIG bribe – Cameron promises tax cuts for 30 million people; the deficit and public services can go hang

Here we are, then – the big offer to bribe the UK’s citizens into voting Conservative, despite the hammering he has given them for the last four and a half years. To persuade you to let him keep hammering you for another five years, David Cameron is offering to: Raise the tax-free personal allowance for the lowest earners from £10,500 to £12,500 Raise the threshold for the 40p rate of income tax from £41,900 to £50,000 He said raising the tax-free allowance would help one million people and cut taxes for…

Betrayed Nation: the speech, the lies, the threat

David Cameron’s speech to the Conservative Party Conference may go down in history as the worst drivel ever coughed up over the public by a British national leader. I was going to write a serious article about it but, on reflection, I have decided to mock and insult him pitilessly, interspersing my disdain with some medicinal doses of cold hard truth – and a few tasty pics from Facebook and Twitter. Where to begin? Let’s go for the biggest groaner. Yet again with your disabled son, Mr Cameron? “When I…
