Cable Drops His Bomb Prime Minister Neutered

Traditionally a Minister would have walked before accusing his boss of being “very unwise” and risking  “inflaming extremism”, but no such bravery from Vince Cable who has once again fobbed off to a female journalist. Cameron’s speech, to Hampshire Conservatives no less, is undoubtedly a bid boost his parties chances in the locals next month. However there was nothing new in the speech and it is basically the government’s policy. Did Cable tell his old chum Brown he was being very unwise when he said “it is right to talk of immigration and address people’s worries and concerns. Because if we don’t, people will listen to whoever does” a few weeks before the election?

Cable is bound by collective Cabinet responsibility and was already on his final warning for his loose tongue. Cameron’s weakness is exposed by his apparent inability to sack this liability.

            I agree. Right to recall, another general election would be good.

            Cameron needs to sack Cable or his authority is totally undermined. It already makes a mockery of sacking/asking Lord Young to resign.

            Cameron should also instigate the investigation of David Laws, he said he would sort people like Laws out before the election, as did Clegg- but who believes a word he says.

            Cable is intensely irritating, swaggering around as a member of the Government despite being a member of the 3rd place party, one now hated even by its supporters, in place by a mathematical chance and not the will of the electorate.
            True Conservatives have a hard enough time seeing Cameron at the helm without that limp crowd of Liberal plotters and grumblers preening themselves at being “in government”. God, I hate ‘em.

            Sir. The reason you do not have a problem with the language is because we pay for an interpreter. The reason you integrate is because we pay for it. It is not an unreasonable request to ask someone who wishes to settle in this country to be able to speak a reasonable amount of English. Why can’t you just accept that?

There were many kingdoms we united them and left them, they are fighting each are to go on their own way. We didn’t give them democracy, we gave them corrupt governments people are trying to get rid of.

            We gave them railways but then again if they were free they would have built it themselves or bought it from us.

            The Brits were no doubt insensitive to local customs. Did the East African slave trade continue after the Brits abolished it?

            Since independence many of the former countries have reverted to their original form of government. Most of the countries that gained independence went in to a civil war of sorts whilst local power groups went for the control of the country. Racism, nepotism, totalitarianism, corruption, mass murder, genocide and poverty became rife in several ex. British colonies once the unioin flag was hauled down. We didn’t need to teach them that, they already knew.

            I have heard from many people in different countries who believe that the British treat them better then their own post-independent governments.

            You will very rarely see that view expressed on the BBC, however I was both shocked and delighted that an episode of “the tribe” was not censored, and they showed the bit where Bruce Parry went to Borneo to live with the tree people, and they were so besides themselves with happiness that a British TV crew had come to visit them, because they loved British rule. They begged him to go back to Britain and persuade the British to take control of Borneo again, because the Bornean government was far far worse than being ruled by the British.

If you want to see unbelievable poverty, cruelty and corruption try visiting “independent” states like Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.

      I’m not so sure. If Cameron fires Cable, this presents no end of problems for Cleggie not least of which is a loose cannon rolling around, stirring up rebellion amongst the LibDem rank and file (who are as unhappy with the coalition as their Tory counterparts). The LimpDums are headed for electoral disaster next month plus their beloved AV looks like it will be kicked ito touch.

      This plus a rebellious Cable make the autumn’s conference season very dangerous for Clegg and if he gets unseated as LibDem leader there goes the coalition which would leave Cameron with two options: a minority administration or an election.

      Given the unhappiness of his own troops I imagine neither prospect fills Dave with a warm fuzzy feeling.

      Result, there will be much bluster, publicly Cable will be admionished in the stromngest of terms but in reality nothing will change and Vince will be free to continue drawing his ministerial salary while slagging off the administration in which he serves.

        Cable is one of those old, seen-it-all-before, stubborn buggers every organisation has. The ones that are unable to adapt to changing situations and want everything to stay as it was. Cable will always be a bottleneck. Not even a useful maverick. He should be removed.

    There was an old commie called Cable
    Who was sadly not very able
    He would open his gob
    Prove he was a knob
    Then see his P45 on the table

    This sad socialist cock
    Of whom we all mock
    Is terribly vain and unstable
    Meeting a fit lady hack
    His brain goes all slack
    A useful idiot is John Vincent Cable

    Why would Cameron want to add more fuel to Cable’s martyr complex?

    Don’t sack him, just say on the record something along the lines “I note the difficulty Mr. Cable is experiencing adapting from a position of pompous if powerless ineffectualness to shouldering the responsibilities of actually being in government. Allow me to offer him a lifeline; if he is as unhappy as a member of government as he appears to be, I will be happy to accept his resignation should he ever manage to muster the courage to offer it.”

They have to find a way of re-balancing the economy to kick shiftless welfarers off beneifts and into these jobs.

    Then he claims that immigration from the EU is minor.

    Then he talks about reducing the increase in immigration when the requirement is to send home all the foreigners already here.
