Who knew the sinister and malignant Vince Cable was in Zulu.
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Over the centuries the British have saved Europe from the ravages of Napoleon, the Prussians, Hitler and his Nazis, and the Soviet tank armies poised to storm across Europe. Liberty, freedom of speech and democracy are not an accident of history, they came at the point of a bayonet with some guts behind it. The likes of Vince Cable betray all who went before to defend those values with their lives. He breaks The Faith, extinguishes that Torch that was handed on. A man who fought in World War II, who had his leg blown off by a German tank shell, who was then shot as he was medevaced from the battlefield on a stretcher…is Cable saying he is not entitled to vote because he’s ‘old’?
It is a remarkable thing that someone so illiberal and so undemocratic as Vince Cable should be leader, by dint that no one else wanted the job, of the Liberal Democratic party. A man who thinks only people who think like him should be allowed to vote. A man who is fully prepared to tell the grandest of lies, to bend the truth out of all recognition, in order to gull people into voting his way. A man whose use of violent, intemperate language that seeks to demonise and scapegoat a whole class of voters is nothing short of ‘hate speech’ designed to whip up anger, discontent and a backlash against that group. The LibDems, if they were wise, should immediately remove him from the leadership role. The police should certainly step in and investigate Cable for his reckless incitement and his wild claims against Brexit voters, especially in light of the massive intimidation, bullying and threats of violence that Leave voters and politicians are forced to suffer and endure from Remain activists…unrecognised by the BBC of course.
It will be interesting to see how the BBC reacts to Cable’s madness as he rages about McCarthyism, Brexit thought-crime and Brexit Jihadis and the Old ‘shafting the young’. As far as I remember that was only on BBC premises by a BBC employee.
Cable seems to want you to believe that Brexit was only voted for by the over 65’s, there may be a growing number of older people but I hadn’t realised there were 17.4 million over 65. And even if that had been true that’s what’s called Democracy Vincent. You cannot pick and choose those who you want to allow to vote.
So far the BBC has not treated us to one of its interpretations or analyses of his ramblings….just this abridged collection of his worst anti-Brexit comments as is the BBC way so that we get the full-on concentrated bile of his words so that we can fully understand the true horror and folly of Brexit. No doubt the BBC will be smoothing things out for him tomorrow on the Today show…’maybe he’s a bit overstating things but essentially he’s right isn’t he children?’ The same ploy the BBC used to downplay Project fear’s maddest and wildest alarmism.
Battle on Brexiteers….the odds are stacked against you, the game rigged, the goal-posts constantly moved…but eventually they will have to salute you and your victory.
