The disgraced Lib Dem, 67, got dressed up for his appearance in tomorrow night's Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special.

Tory MPs called for him to be dumped from the Cabinet after he was secretly recorded saying he had "declared war" on The Sun's owner Rupert Murdoch.

He was stripped of major powers by furious PM David Cameron but is clinging to his job.

Murdoch gives Vince a good kicking whilst he's down.

I wonder if Dave's got the message.

What a difference a year makes! From the darling of the Liberal Conference to party buffoon with an ego the size of an aircraft carrier, expertly-or deceitfuly; whatevers your poison-massaged by two giggling young ladies.

I think St. Vince should be St. Hidden Agenda. He totally failed to let everybody know before the election about his desire to onshore massive numbers of workers from the Indian subcontinent so I won't be sad to see his sorry globalised ass go.

His reading of the whole credit thing was always overrated; I never forget Brillo doing him over massively over contradictory statements (but I DO forget the link :) )

I always enjoy the hurt look in his eyes as he realises that Brillo has not come to praise him, but bury him. Repeatedly.

Thanks! I forgot he had Stephanie Flanders grinding the stilletto in too.

I think politicians vastly over fear the power of tabloids, all this resigning when a tabloid claims "outrage" etc.

Nobody trusts what they read in tabloids any more than they trust the politicians in the first place. Seems to cancel each other out. These days we know we are universally lied to and are approaching peak cynicism.

Another of Realist Bear's predictions that has gone wildly wrong.

I've been a "St Vince" sceptic ever since HPC touted him as the new economics God, glad my insticts have proven me 100% correct.

He has never been touted as 'the new economics God'. Some saw him as the last hope for a corrupt political system. They were wrong.

Where do we go from here?

The whole matter has been over-played.

Anyone who really wants venal Rupert to enjoy an even greater grip on a media monopoly needs urgently to see a good analyst!

The Sun is an excellent exemplar for Murdoch's hopes for UK satellite broadcasting down to the lowest possible level.

Quite probably, Rupert has been funding Call Me Dave's joke political party in some covert way.

The appropriate sec. state for Industry or similar has always enjoyed a veto power on mergers and take-overs where such create or enlarge any monopoly.

The concerned agency, OFCOM, is about as much use as a one legged man at an **** kicking party: as are the ill-described, OFT.

At least Cable has some formal economics and business exposure: Twee Georgie's sum total of real world expertise, was working for London NHS for a short while keeping records of deaths: and an even shorter spell at Selfridges. Thereafter, he was found a position at Tory HQ as a "Researcher": that wondrous euphemism for waiting in the wings until a safe seat pops up! About the same level as whores are always resting "Models" or "Actresses".

Also let's remember, Cable was THE ONLY front bench politician to repeatedly warn about the rapidly building finance, consumer loan and house market problems.

Not saying he's Crichton: just perhaps the best of a bad bunch.

Where do we go from here?

* David Laws taken down before he got his feet under the table (he was probably too smart for the Tories)

* Vince set up in a 'sting' operation by the Barclay Brothers rag, effectively neutered by Dave and kneecapped by Murdoch

We're only 6 months in and already the only big hitting Libdem still standing is Clegg (I'm discounting real libs like Huhne and Hughes).

Perhaps they'll leave Clegg alone for appearances sake, his political capital is all but exhausted after him and Vince were set up on tuition fees.

Didn't take the right long to turn the coalition effectively into a Tory only govt.

That's where we're going from here...................Unless the libs wake up and do a deal with Ed.

The Sun having supported the Tories before NuLabour and then switching sides to NuLabour since 1997 and then suddenly switching sides back to the Tories before the last election it's likely the Tories are desperate to keep the Sun on board in case of a snap election.

On their past track record it's quite possible they'll switch back again or not or whatever.

jeezus. at what point are the loonie left going to recognise:

(1) hanging on the coattails of a liberal like blair does not make you an election winning machine or red socialism any more acceptable to the public

(2) you lost, because you tried imposing socialism on an electorate that never wanted it, and they saw what a load of shysters you really were

(3) you lost. just incase you hadn't noticed I said it in point 2

(4) Tony Bliar put the boot in afterwards. And you lost.

(5) you lost

(6) you lost

(7) you lost

(8) you lost

+1 - Exactly how I feel. Good riddance Vince.
