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

        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.

          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.

    I couldn’t live with myself if I actually did it, but I don’t half feeling like punching him in the throat.

    Peace & Love

    Oh I do so love pretending to be like the ordinary people. It almost makes me forget for a moment what a complete knobhead I am.

      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?

    How about those Ashcroft polls in Lib Dem seats??

    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?

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

    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.

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

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
