Why did this not surprise me ! Vince Cable has a massive ego that believes that ‘he can bring down the Government’. The ex Labour Party/SDP/Liberal Democrat sage who predicted seventeen of the the last four recessions has demonstrated the words of Billy Connolly ‘anybody who wants to stand for Parliament, should be automatically banned from standing’.
Vince who currently presides over Mandelsonia, a vast sprawling fiefdom called Business, Innovation & Skills created by the Prince of Darkness has succumbed in six short months living in the dizzing heights of Cabinet Office to bouts of hubris and self importance that would not have shamed Mandelson.
With Mandelson at least you could work yourself into a froth of rage at the incompetence,the waste of vast rafts of public money, the self serving money grubbing. With Cable you just get the depressing feeling of what on earth is this man doing there at the top of the tree when British Industry is desperately trying to pull itself out of the biggest hole in our economic history created by his preferred partners in Government, the Mickey Miliband club. Deficit deniers to a man.
The ‘ Liberal’ Democrats are just not Liberal, they believe in fabianism as much as the next socialist. The LD’s are an old fashioned Social Democrat party who hi- jacked the word Liberal without understanding what it meant.
I was in a bookshop on Sunday, flicking through ‘Decline & Fall’ by Chris Mullin, and latched on to his opinion of Nick Clegg’ the biggest Charlatan of them all’. No wonder the Social democrats have plummeted to 9%, UKIP have 5% and at least believe in something passionately. The two big hitters of the Social Democrats will dump any promise or any principle to achieve office.
Ask the students.
As a Libertarian Liberal, I do not advocate the creation of any new civil service post, but I am willing to make an exception here. The post that I suggest that we revive is an ancient one. That of the slave that follows the Emperor on his triumph, whispering repeatedly.
‘You are but a man, You are but a man, You are but a Man
