Cable Finally Declares £6,000 Clegg Plot Poll Gift

Four days after the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards announced she would be launching an inquiry into Vince Cable’s failure to declare the Lord Oakeshott poll in his constituency as a gift, this entry appears in the Business Secretary’s Register of Interests:

Name of donor: Lord Oakeshott
Address of donor: private
Amount of donation or nature and value if donation in kind: conducting a local opinion poll, value £6,000
Donor status: individual

Tessa Munt has still failed to declare the poll in her constituency. Oops.

    Yes now I have been found out.

    If a survey is carried out in a particular constituency without the agreement of the sitting MP it would not be a donation. We may therefore conclude that Vince Cable knew in advance about the survey and approved it.

    So much for his surprise about what Oakeshott was up to.

    The LibDems are finished, anyway. The LibLabCon is finished.

    Vote UKIP :-D

    Bill Quango MP says:

    How are we supposed to respond to that?

    Do we point out that last week they were convinced that a budget cuts were necessary but that this week they believe more handouts is the answer?

    Or do we just ignore them as usual?

  13. 13
    Not in my name says:

    Nature of donation in kind: Treachery

    Vince Incableable says:

    I don’t recall asking for a poll to provide evidence to show that Nick Clegg must resign and make way for a much older man.

    Handycock says:

    Disgraceful conduct by Cable. A resigning issue in my mind.

    If Cable had any decency he would have to stand down after such a stunning piece of disloyalty and double-dealing.

    Why are they standing behind the bar?

    Stealing drinks, or is it an unnatural pose for the camera?

    Vote Tory for unlimited immigration says:

    To make sure they don’t lose their £500 deposit?

    I’d like to think it “sends a message” to the Tories, but I don’t think Cameron pays the slightest bit of attention to anything or anyone, unless they’re waving £250K under his nose.

    Vote Tory for unlimited immigration says:

    To hide behind when the regular dr!nkers in the pub start throwing beer glasses at them?

    Socialism is theft says:

    England have as much chance of winning the world cup as the Lib Dems have of forming another government coalition.

    Ronnie Biggs says:

    Me and my mates secured a loan some time back (1963) and may of not filled all the paperwork in at that time. If I give the money back, will everything be OK? or do I have to say sorry as well.

    Ann, the poverty stricken accounts clerk says:

    Oh, I think it does – hence the plethora of Tory bigwig visitors to the recent bye-election. UKIP really had them doing nasties in the knickers. And just to remind, the Tories lost 50% of their voter base that day.

    Beware of polls, masquerading as gifts. They might conceal some form of Trojan horse-s**t, intended to curry favour.

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.”
