    Cool Hand Vince says:

    I have a 50 inch tv slightly burned at edges and lots of carpet for sale

    Tuscan Tony says:

    “Peter Stringfellow is an oasis of clam”

  3. 3
    Hugh Janus says:

    That bumbling old fool Cable also told us last week that we are well-placed to weather the financial storm.

    Now where have I heard that kind of stupid comment before?? And was it not the case that we were subsequently engulfed in a tsunami of debt, inflation and reduced living standards?

    There is clearly no one quite so ridiculous as a politician.

    tube-thumper says:

    they all look the same to me

  5. 5
    Grumpy Old Man says:

    There is no-one so quite so ridiculous as a senile, tit-struck, failed economist politician.

  6. 6
    Grumpy Old Man says:

    Ah, the triumph of 13 years of muli-culturalism allied to 13 years of Edukashunx3 !

    cuse says:

    fair’s fair Guido.

    he’s only saying what his boss, the world-renowned economic genius that is Gideon George Osborne is telling him to say.

    Tuscan Dave says:

    Big Society! Big 55″ TV! Marvellous!

  9. 9
    Ed Milimong's Parasite Party says:

    Don’t spout your western-cultural imperialism here, matey-boy – you’re obviously hideously white.

    Looting and robbing is part of the rich cultural identity of the Tottenham community. Far from criticising it, we should be celebrating it as one of the glorious hallmarks of Multicultural Britain.

    Bemused of Suffolk says:

    What about Chris Huhne?

  11. 11
    Gordon Brown says:

    My genius brought an end to boom and bust.

    And my sale of 395 tonnes of Britain’s gold at the bottom of the market made this country a fortune.

  12. 12
    Grumpy Old Man says:

    Your policies certainly made this Country’s fortune.

  13. 13
    Paul Marks says:

    Every day I find it difficult to come to terms with the idea that “Uncle Vince” Cable is a minister – the man is such a waste of space (so radically wrong headed – about everything).

    If having people like Mr Cable as senior ministers was the price of the deal with the Lib Dems, then David Cameron should have “put Labour back in to bat” i.e. let the Lib/Lab pact (that people like Mr Cable craved) take place.

    As the Liberals and Labour together would not have had a real majority in the House of Commons such a Lib/Lab government would have already collapsed (brought down by some vote or other) and there would now be a majority Conservative government elected cleanly at a general election.

    Mr Cameron was too eager to become Prime Minister – he grasped at the chance without thinking of the true consequences of the deal he was making. If only he had waited he would still, now, be Prime Minister – but at the head of a proper Conservative government.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    What a coincidence! Looting and robbing is also part of the rich cultural inheritance of the Socialist movement in the UK.

  15. 15
    Mad Hattie Harman's curiously cavernous front bottom says:

    Rejoice at the rich multicultural looting experience bequeathed to you by the Parasite Party.

    When the Parasite Party returns to its rightful place – in government – after the next election, the multicultural looting experience will resume with greater enthusiasm than ever before. We shall sweep-away the last vestiges of British pseudo-culture and – using your money – create a new Parasitic Society where every city, town and village becomes indistinguishable from Tottenham.

  16. 16
    Tuscan Tony says:

    Spot on.

  17. 17
    The Scribbler says:

    Cable has more than a few times shown that his statements are all his own, no matter what the consequences.
    Based on this prophetic statement he has proven he is in the wrong job (as we all know) and he should now be made Home Secretary – of Zimbabwe.
    Strange that UK sovereign debt is 80% of our GDP yet the BBC bang on about Spain whose sovereign debt is only just over 60% of their GDP.
    They are drowning in a sea of information at a loss as to how they can manipulate it to suit their agenda, and losing credibility in this inability.
    Using the Guardian, LSE and a few redbricks for their economists and editors is proving an albatros around their necks.

  18. 18
    Tacitus says:

    Hindsight is wonderful.
    Vince and his sandals and beard chums had no leadership ability and an inflated egotistical view of their capabilities. Cameron was conned by them and himself in believing this would change in the shorter term when they had responsibilities and accountability.
    I believe Clegg is doing his best; but Vince and his party are now operating well into their Peter Principle regions, and it is likely that one of them will cause a major crisis in the near future.

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.”
