Vince Cable Told Gordon Brown He Did Not Want To...

And so, like the primitive chimpanzee's they are, Labour begin throwing faeces from their cage of electoral purgatory, just as people with obvious and fundamental differences attempt to begin the process of cleaning up after the retarded socialist monkeys have left office

Well put and you're right, it's everywhere, perhaps they have learnt that putting this information out there in this form is cheap, if only they had worried

about costs when they were in office

This is going to go on for the whole of this parliament. The dumb press are incredulous at the whole idea. They can't seem to just accept that no, these people and these parties dont agree on everything. Period. So yes, you're going to find endless stories like this. "What their Andy said to our Susan" etc etc. The only thing that matters is can the end result be coherent and good policy, or something even vaguely close. Its not like Labour have been pulling a blinder for 13 years is it.

Point was made extremely well by Chris Addison on HIGNFY

The idea you can abstract these individual human beings and all their complicated array of views and delusions as either Yellow or Blue lies at the core of so many problems. For more on the stupidity of categorising and abstracting entire groups of people for mental convenience, see various writings of Dawkins.

This is a much too sensible and reasonable post for this forum.

Oddly, Vince Cable, the darling of HPC posters, is in reality, nothing more than a power hungry politician...like all the rest.

Looks like he's got there just in time. He looks to me about an hour away from death at all times.

Politics seems to be a younger persons game nowadays.

Edited to add: Menzies Campbell looks 10 mins away from death at all times.

What school did Vince go to?

Was he in the Loop?

He went to a Nunthorpe Grammar school not public school so probably did not spend his youth getting rogered by his chums in the showers

No way he was going to get a top job.

The class structure of the cabinet has been wound back to the Edwardian era

It's time to grow up and let them get on with it.

It's difficult to see how anyone could fu*ck things up as badly as New Labour.

I feel as if a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I know taxes are going to go up and government spending is going to go down, but I at least feel the government is not determined to suffocate and oppress me.

That's how New Labour made me feel.

...the 'old boy network' has disappeared from much of business, industry, commerce, the armed forces and even the public sector/civil service...and you certainly don't have to go to Eton and Oxbridge to be an entrepreneur ....look on the sunny side...maybe that's the only choice they had....become a politician....would you...?..... :rolleyes:

I totally agree – and hope Cameron and Clegg can make it work. I wish for once people could work together for their country, rather than for their own vested interests. Following a disastrous labour administration, we have a very grave economic situation that must be dealt with quickly and decisively. That is what the focus must be on.

It does no one any good at all when those with vested interests – whether it be the media searching for 'stories' attempting to torpedo the coalition, or politicians thinking of their personal interests – constantly inject negativity into the situation.

Do you remember the Alan Milburn Report 'Into the Professions'?

Money and contacts still count.

Yes but there isn't enough slack in the system anymore to hold back talent because it's from the wrong side of the tracks.

I reckon people are crying out for the genuinely capable.

The suggestion some chinless wonder will obtain preferment over some likely lad that can get stuff done just because said chinless went to the right school is a generation out of date.

But what is genuinely disappointing is what little talent seems to be coming from the proletariat.

Even Shane MacGowan went to the same school as Nick Clegg.

Not monetarily of course :-

In time the public will come to judge Brown and NuLabour once their destruction is laid bare, it's like Greenspan when he retired 4 years ago, everyone lauded him then reality struck :-

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/financialcrisis/7564598/Fed-boss-Greenspan-says-no-one-saw-the-crisis-coming.-Really.html

Mandelson is still out there however, NuLabour will respawn like a hydra.

I will never, ever forgive that odius man for holding the country to ransom while he forced through the NRK bailout via what Harman later called "the court of public opinion" (knowing full well of the stratification of Granite's mortage series, and what this would eventually cost the taxpayer).

A banker turned politician - almost as morally bankrupt as a lawyer turned politician, but not nearly as charming about it.

Oh, worse still, a phrenologist playing at being banker - turned politician then.

A huckster, a charlatan, and someone who'd sell his own Grandmother placebos.
