LibDem's Cable 'skewered' - and not before time!

Today's 'Daily Politics Debate' dealt with the three men who might aspire to be Chancellor of the Exchequer after the election (although, as an aside, most seem to accept that Alistair Darling will not remain in that post if by some miracle/disaster Labour win the election).

Darling is not a 'bad man', I think, but he has the misfortune to be saddled with socialist tendencies and, much worse, he has Gordon Brown as his boss. Osborne showed why he will be a good Chancellor - he is normally far too civilised and polite to force his views upon others in debate, but today I'm glad to say he showed some 'teeth' (and his mettle).

Cable - what to say about 'Saint' Vince Cable? I've thought for quite some time (the last few years at least) that Vince Cable is that archetypal LibDeb - duplicitious, lying and generally a pretty deplorable sort. His claims to financial sagacity are pretty laughable, but he is plausible and he has the knack of coming across as a 'serious player', something which he most certainly is not. I'm pleased today that his bumptiouness was exposed rather nicely, brutally even. It was a pleasure to watch! Read an article in today's Spectator 'Coffee House' which encapsulates neatly just how much of a 'blowhard' Cable is, as does this excellent video-clip (courtesy of Guido Fawkes) of Cable floundering and spluttering that anyone should have the lèse majesté to examine LibDem policies forensically:

  1. Yes, nice take. I can't see the Lib Dems continuing on into power.
