Flip-Flop: Vince Cable on EU Referendum Was For It Before He Was Against

Vince Cable consistently counter-attacks whenever the Tory right bangs on about an EU referendum. Following Dave’s bewildering Sunday Telegraph piece at the weekend, Cable said that talk of a referendum was “horribly irrelevant“. Odd then that back in 2007 before the Eurozone meltdown got going Vince was rather more positive about the idea:
