Quote of the Day

The Sun mocks Cable’s “attack” on red tape…

“Way to go, Vince Cable. As the economy flatlines, the Business Secretary saves the day – by cutting regulations on the sale of chocolate liqueurs. ‘This is very radical – we are moving fast,’ declared Mr Cable as he went further by axing rules on fly spray and lowering the age for buying Christmas crackers… Thank goodness the Business Secretary didn’t do anything rash, like tackling the high taxes and red tape destroying enterprise.”

    If Vince Cable can declare the cutting of 130 ineffective regulations, then there must be another 13000 out there.
    He is awful. While I did not like Peter Mandelson’s lack of any ethical content, he certainly had more grasp of business realpolitik in his little finger than Vince has in his whole body.

    Mr Cable – what a joke. Him and Mr Huhne deserve each other. Somewhere else but in our country.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
