Cable vs Satellite

I have long thought that, for all his down-with-the-people appeal, Vince Cable was something of an arse, a populist gadfly. I hadn’t figured that he was this much of an arse. The initial revelations in the Daily Telegraph were embarrassing

Laying Cable – high farce in the coalition

I’m going to quickly summarise the issue of Vince Cable and tuition fees. Are you ready? Vince Cable backs the increase in tuition fees – but possibly only in an official capacity as a co-designer of the policy. In a

How quickly things change in politics…

I just happened to stumble across Chris Huhne’s website. Huhne, of course, is the new Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change in this new, perverse, coalition government. As if to reinforce the duplicity, double standards and u-turns that

The Kennedy Assassination

Poor old Charles Kennedy. Hounded to resignation by a pack of wolves. Who ever would have believed that the Liberal Democrats had such a ruthless streak? So much for their friendly uncle, sandal-wearing image. When push comes to shove, they’re
