Flashback : Cable's Flip Flop Previous

Wounded Vince Cable’s performance on Newsnight last night was classic Cableism. He backtracked, flip-flopped and was forced to accept, live on television, that his hated rival Osborne had been right all along. There was pain in those eyes, you would have to have a heart of stone not to laugh.

He’s the punters favourite to be first to leave the Cabinet, but last night he was painfully walking the collective responibility line. Some have been expressing surprise at his changing of position, but it’s not as if he hasn’t flip-flopped before is it:

Cleggmania saw the beginning of the eclipse of Cable, his role was vastly downgraded to just having his picture on the side of the campaign bus. He may have predicted the eighteen of the last two recessions, but if Vince is such a sage, why didn’t he foresee a situation where he would be reporting to Osborne? If he is such a sage why did he have to wait to be told by the Bank of England that cuts were needed immediately? Let’s hope he’s not relying on his runes to workout how to start cutting £836m from his department.

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
