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:

We see a referendum as an opportunity to have a proper debate about the future of Britain’s relationship with the EU. No-one under the age of fifty – including the current Foreign Secretary – has had a say on Britain’s membership of the EU. An in-out referendum would give people a vote on the broad issue. We trust the people to make a decision about whether we should stay in or get out. We must flush our opponents out of their bunkers and challenge them to make clear their positions on this fundamental issue for the future of our country.”

From a “fundamental issue” to “horribly irrelevant” in just a few years. A LibDem abandoning their principles once they’ve entered the corridors of power – fancy that…
