Media catches up with Vince Cable flip flops

It’s nice to see someone in the media finally pointing out the inconsistent nonsense articulated by Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesman (he prefers ‘Shadow Chancellor) Vince Cable.  The Sun has stepped up to the breach where other newspapers choose not to tread, with a piece called ‘Unstable Cable’.

Sadly for The Sun, the paper gives the impression that Cable has only just been exposed as a flip flopping, self important windbag.  It is something political observers in the blogosphere have been pointing out for a considerable time. Even this blog recently pointed out the Fib Dims are making Cable central to their election campaign, because of the cult of personality that has grown up around him due to the easy ride he gets in the press.

But at least Murdoch’s tabloid is finally shattering the illusion of Cable being some kind of economic genius, as it tells its readers:

LIB DEM deputy leader Vince Cable is today exposed as a hopeless “flip-flopper” who cannot make up his mind on what’s best for the economy.

Wobbly Mr Cable – who triumphed with viewers in TV’s Ask The Chancellors debate last week – has been caught out making a series of embarrassing U-turns on key policies.

Better late than never.  The piece is headed with a nice graphic, scanned by ConservativeHome, that gives just one example of the scattergun pronouncements of the supposed economic sage.
