Cable Vs Murdoch

Massive c**k up, the takeover will go through now. He's going to go under a cloud of his own big head. Could it bring down the government, or will Laws return and Cable sit quietly on the benches?

 

 

Another point, Telegraph must have very mixed emotions, strengthening a rival

This shouldn't help Murdoch win, should it ? Its still a legal question of whether its right and proper for that big a monopoly position to exist.

can't quite believe cable has been so indiscreet, what a c**k up. Hope it rips the Lib Dems apart and the Tories struggle to shepherd them into voting for all these crackpot policies.

It looks very bad that they didn't release it though. Makes it looks like they covered it up to keep Cable in a position to block it.

 

Complete c**k-up.

The EU have come back with no objections, OFCOM next. After that it's up to Cable to decide if it goes to competition commission and then up to him to make final decision. he had the power to block it by degree. That is now compromised and so whomever presides over it will pretty much have to take the view of these bodies. Now much more likely to go through

 

My guess is that if Cable leaves on a point of principle, then there would be definite trouble, if he leaves because he cocked up, he's a marginalised figure who could be replaced, maybe by Laws who is of course close to Con political ground.

Well he was in there from the start and is now clean...

 

Cable is clearly important for some Lib backbenchers as a makeweight, but either way his role as that is f***ed, staying and marginalised or out and marginalised. Lib Dems have a big issue, revolt now and they'll be wiped out in an election, they need five years for rehabilitation. Nobody apart from the Tories (who can tap up a fair few big donors) can actually fund an election campaign, Labour are at year zero on policy.

yep, he#s come out of this looking like a hopeless clown. Think back to the period just before the election when the Lib Dems had all these cracking policies and everyone was saying how talented Vince was. Vince is the brains behind these Lib Dems, he'd make an excellent chancellor this lad.

 

He's not 63 by any chance is he?

 

67

Vince Cable fans looking like a right bunch of t***s

 

THE millions of people who said Vince Cable was exactly the sort of politician this country needs were last night looking like a bunch of grade-A t***s.

 

Across Britain, smart-arses who spent all of 2009 telling everyone they knew to pay attention to Mr Cable, were overcome by wave after wave of cold nausea as the wise old Lib Dem MP gifted the British television industry to Rupert Murdoch.

Me. It was the Telegraph for a start who clearly realised they had scored an own goal. Cable f***ed himself up on this one, gift for Murdoch

 

 

True enough. A few fluttered eyelashes and a "what do you really think, daddy?" and the land that we live on is theirs.

you think the tories like having to give positions of power to lib dems....?

Irrelevant to this issue. Telegraph set out to get some Lib Dems on tape disagreeing with Gov policy, which in itself is tittle tattle and easily brushed off with 'There is always discussion and disagreement within government'.

 

It was brushed off until it came out that Cable had f***ed up hugely by revealing he had prejudiced views on a matter he was supposed to be presiding over in an impartial judicial manner. Had it been a News Corp title inducing the opinion out of him, there might be some legs in a conspiracy, but the Telegraph have no interest whatsoever in strengthening the position of News Corps, quite the opposite. Cable f***ed up, entirely of his own making, and has done Murdoch a huge favour into the bargain
