Vince Spending More Money on Spin

Business Secretary and obvious shoo-in for the next LibDem leader Vince Cable is on the lookout for a new spinner. His department is advertising for new comms man and are offering a generous £80,000 per year to the successful candidate. Apparently “personal credibility, political nous and sound judgement will be essential“. Someone should tell Vince…

    Having met with B*lly B*wden for a cold beer yesterday evening,he is best qualified for this vacancy.

    Backwoodsman says:

    If you had to nominate the most ghastly limpdim, it really would be a straight fight between the spectacular sleazy repulsiveness of simon hughes and the stupid old marxist tosser vince.
    I suppose its a points decision for vince, because he’s currently in a position where he manages to do more damage than hughes.

  13. 13
    Promises Promises says:

    But this can not be true. Ever since the London bid was won All those in the know said the games would be good for London and even Britain. Though I can’t see how having a supermarket open at 7 on a Sunday night, full of staff and no customers is good for business.

  14. 14
    Incapable Vince says:

    The successful candidate will also need to watch what I do with sensitive personal information.

    This is why we arranged for the 24hour 7 day opening of everything across the nation. It’s to compensate for the poor trading that we really expected in the London area.

    V1le Labour ruined my Country says:

    Vince is dangerous because he has delusions of competency when everyone knows he’s just an over promoted school teacher. I’m disappointed that no-one has found his secret off-shore assets yet!

    Only 12 days 05 hours 20 minutes until the Olympics are over! Yay! says:

    Don’t forget the owner of the face you’d never tire of punching – Chris Huhne.

  21. 21
    Paul Newsnight Mason says:

    Nowt wrong with over-promoted teachers.

  22. 22
    Joss Ayinglike says:

    The successful candidate will also need to remind Mr. Cable that tax isn’t just for ‘little people’.


  23. 23
    Only 12 days 05 hours 14 minutes until the Olympics are over! Yay! says:

    In LimpDim circles, Vince is a man-God. They will say (sotto voce) “He used to work in the private sector, you know. Yes! Yes! He has business experience!

    For Shell. For about 18 months. Nearly 20 years ago (at the same time Shell was having ‘undesirables’ ‘liquidated’).

    The rest of his illustrious 46 year career has been spent farting about doing sod-all in politics, alongside all the other muppets..

    Lord Oldshit is my favourite LibDemon loony.

  26. 26
    Tachybaptus says:

    He’s looking for ‘personal credibility, political nous and sound judgement’ because he doesn’t have any of these himself and wants to borrow them.

    How can you humiliate people who are already non-entities ??

    Vince Cable is looking pretty porky in that photo.

  29. 29
    Cable is a liar and a cheat says:

    Its not just the way he avoided his taxes which stinks, but the way he was given the benefit of discretion as to the size of the penalty – a discretion which HMRC even now swears blind in proceedigs against other taxpayers does not exist.

  35. 35
    Vince says:

    I believe I am a Prophet.

    And a true prophet is never honored in his own homeland

    Ergo – I AM a prophet.

  36. 36
    nellnewman says:

    vince as next libdem leader ++++Laugh++++ He has completely lost all credibility since he’s been a minister in the coalition. Lord I think his understanding of sound economics is even more dire than brown and balls.

    So it would be very fitting for him to take over the libdems when they finally hit rock bottom. No libdem with any political ambition is going to want the job.

  37. 37
    Moussa Koussa says:

    Incomes falling
    House prices nose diving
    Shops empty
    Growth falling
    Diesel prices rising
    Boris inviting Scum hole to Olympics
    Tory councils on the fiddle
    Tory MP’s each still taking 56 overpaid jobs outside of parliamentary work
    More SpAds
    More Cuts
    Debt not falling
    Cabinet of planks
    Most of Dave’s mates on bail

    Not going very well – is it.

    Better than Spain, Italy, Greece, Ireland and Portugal – which is what we would be like now if Labour had got back in. Maybe even worse.

  47. 47
    Anonymous says:

    Who cares about 30% unemployment in Spain and Greece as long as the Euro political elite can continue to draw their very large salaries and expenses and it saves the EU dream and the Euro?

    Unemployment is a price worth paying. Just ask Vince, Nick and the other Libdem loonies. If they were in control that unemployment figure would be here too! We would have the Euro too and bankrupt!

    Yes, but he came here and slagged off the Olympic preparations, then went straight to Jerusalem to kiss Netanyahoo’s arse.

    A proper Anglo-Saxon would have nothing to do with the Christ-killers. Hell, we didn’t have any of the buggers in England at all until William of Normandy imported loads as moneylenders, and even they were kicked out by Edward the First.

    *wipes knob on curtains* is one of mine. I read 15 years ago that rich Arabs, staying in posh hotels, can’t like toilet paper because they use the curtains instead. It was so gross that it stuck in my mind and I recycled it into current form. Course there may be plenty of others who thought up the same thing… ♥

    jgm2 says:

    Joyce played the game in the army for long enough to acquire the affectations of the officer class. A bit like Prescott and his croquet affectation. It seems it was only when he couldn’t advance beyond the rank of major that he decided it was all due to class oppression and wouldn’t entertain the possibility that it was because they realised he was a chippy, dr*unk*en, violent liability.

    How wrong were they eh?

    Hallo Peasants I thought you would pleased to know I have achieved one of mid term goals of driving your disposable income’s down to 2003 levels !!

    This takes a real cranial defect, on my part but I will continue along this path without deviation & with my level of incompetence & arrogance along with being totally detached as to what is really happening in your world, which I could not care about, I will achieve my goal.

    I just know you will want to heap all sorts of praise’s for my success, in heading in this direction back to the ’90’s for your disposable income,
    btw thats the 1890’s !!.

    This will not only keep inflation at bay but will make UK Plc much much more profitable for the 1% than its even been for the last 100 years or more.

    Even the BBC has taken the enlightened step of publishing my achievement on there web site.

    For all who loved Lynyrd Skyntrd in their prime (I went to see them three times including one centre front row time), and who loved Sweet Home Alabama, I bring you this. The Leningrad Cowboys & Red Army Choir singing it. Yes, you read that correctly… If you think this is surreal, wait until you get to 1:48.

    This is serious mind-bending shit. If you don't want to become affected
    by it then *don't watch it*

    The song is so good and my memories of Skynyrd so great that I still find myself singing along to it. This proves I am a really sad bastard. Would like to see them try Freebird, but perhaps, upon more mature thought, not…

    I won’t say enjoy, just listen:

    When the vid completes you see the features of Hughie Thomasson at the top right. Brilliant singer/lead guitarist from the Outlaws, who took over from Ed King, original Skynyrd member, who left after the first three albums and is thereby still alive. He had rejoined in 1987 after the plane crash of the previous year which had claimed the lives of three band members and three crew and seriously injured all the others. Sadly, this is rather a pale version of the song. A better live recording from Wolfgang’s Vault (Bill Graham’s famous stash) is here, recorded three months before that blasted crash:

    …the ultimate irony of “Sweet Home Alabama” is that for so many, the song’s implied put down of Neil Young was NOT meant as criticism but as support of Young’s anti-racism. Thus, for those who think it’s so clever to put down Neil Young using the phrase “Hope Neil Young will remember, a southern man don’t need him around anyhow” little do they realize that they have the meaning backwards. Every day, someone blogs or tweets the “Neil Young putdown” without comprehending that they’ve actually praised him.

    All very interesting stuff , this reading and typing things and the determination of offence . I must admit a few years ago , I was fairly shocked at having , replys that seemed offensive out of nowhere , but some sort of unofficial ettiquet has occured since then although I am not sure what we have seen in the changes in the teen minds it has created are a change for the better , but then they will probebly be moment when I am at the bustop and a group starts up “look theres a bloke reading a book , hey grandad ,you want get with it ” or somthing to that effect . The trouble is , not so much that i dont understand how to get with it , its that I have troubling thoughts about what this sea of immediacy is actually doing , but then again I am on that line of aging where I can remember a world with just the landline and the post (i can even remember telegrams at weddings)

    Circle has run Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Cambridgeshire since February.

    Regional NHS officials monitoring Circle say the company has made a good start, while warning that improvements at the hospital must be sustainable.”

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
