Vince and Norman, Now and Then

There were some raised eyebrows on the left when Vince Cable was eye-spied laughing merrily on College Green with former Chancellor Norman Lamont.

But this was no one-off encounter. These two go way back and were both President of the Cambridge Union – “We’re all in tails together.”

So it seems not every Tory gives Vince that pained expression.

    Is there more than ONE ???

    Mark Oaten says:

    No, there’s two – lucky me!

    crip says:

    well, I still think Vince should own up to being the basterd father of McDoom. they both are fooked in the head and HATE the Tories because they are not the right kind of mental Fookers like they are.

    Or something.

    My girlfriend hates that I jumps straight into the bath after taking a shit without wiping my arse.

    I suppose I could wait until she gets out though

    Norman rented his house to a prostitute
    Vince prostituted himself for a whiff of power

    tax rises and jobs cuts to pay to third world despots says:

    All the tax increaes and job cuts go to pay foriegn aid!

    foriegn aid, none of which actually makes it to the third world poor, but rather bribes despots who are the puppets of the corporations just like our politicians, in short you just ensured that you pay for the continued bribery of third world despots with your taxes ande jobs for the corporations that run our politicians through such groups as the bilderberg group, one such member is Osborne.

    WTF is the point of international aid?

    More recently Norman and Vince been seen sharing a bottle of hair whitener

    tax rises and jobs cuts to pay to third world despots says:

    it is used to blackmale third world despots using your taxes and jobs so the corporations can continue to rape their resources and keep their people oppressed, much like the way the international bankers got the despots of the third world to take on the unrepayable loans that have kept the third world in poverty, same as what they have just done to the west.

    Its money laundering. Who pays for Prof Prescott? Not the chinks. And Blair? Its easy. Give the money to some foreign despot. They take 75% and promise to pay 25% for lecture fees.

    Allan@Aberdeen says:

    The corporations are owned by the banking groups which, in turn, are owned by the family of which the guy who owns George Osborne is a member. Put like this, the mining corporations are owned by the international banks which own our debt and tell the government what to do. The mining corps are very interested in Afghanistan so if anyone wants to know why our troops are there, that’s why.

    This wouldn’t have happened if McDoom was still PM. He’d have wished them luck.

    I asked Fabio Capello if he thought England would go 4-4-2 today. He said “No, I think they will go 7-4-7, it’s bigger and offers more leg room.”

    So what if these two have known each other for yonks.

    At least they are educated unlike 90% of the population.

    Guido you are beginning to come across like the masses, bitter.

    Here is Vince with his first warfe:

    He must have been listening to the dirty old perverted tramp, Michael Foot, ranting about poking blakes, and decided he wanted to get up to some monkey business.

    Roanld Reagan lives says:

    Thankfully I had never heard of Lyndon La Rouche (very American name) until now.

    He has obviously forgotten about Bhopal in which his evil American chemical company killed 15-16000 Indians and physically and/or mentally harmed up to 500,000 more.

    How tragic that this man should stir up national hatred (when there really isn’t any). He forgets that US Foreign Policy is detested by most of the world.

    People in glass houses should not throw stones.

    Argosy says:

    *YAWN* – another Oxbridge-obsessed thread, Guido. The third this week. Give it a rest.

    Though interestingly, Vince was a Liberal at the time – he was chucked out of the Cambridge Liberals for trying to merge them with Labour, and so joined Labour in ’65. Then the SDP in ’82. Then the Lib Dems in ’88. And is now a minister in a Tory-led government.

    You can always depend on Vince. He’s always inconsistent.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
