There have been a lot of tweets etc on the dismal Vince Cable’s slow torture by Paxman on Newsnight last night, primarily around the Lib Dems’ failure to stop the tuition fees coming in (in England and Wales). As Dan Hodges says: Anyone who thinks Vince Cable would be an asset to the Lib Dems as leader needs their head examining. Here is Vince’s odd turn of phrase:
It was not a stunt. It was part of a genuinely felt wish to assist the student population. It was deeper than a stunt.
“deeper than a stunt”??
The Lib Dem’s are the bottom-of-the-barrel equivalent of Donald Rumsfeld’s legendary “known unknowns”.
They are truly reliably unreliable.
