A few months ago, I heard Ian Hislop, the editor of Private Eye, when asked which party he supported say:
"I support the Vince Cable for Chancellor Party".
The interviewer took it as a bit of a joke- after all there was no such party, was there?
This morning I see in the Independent on Sunday that John Rentoul is suggesting that a lot of voters would like to see Vince Cable as the Chancellor, but he suggests that in order for the voters to get what they want, they should vote Labour.
I thought that was the Alistair Darling for Chancellor Party.
There is indeed a Vince Cable for Chancellor Party- and it is most assuredly not Labour.
More and more people are realising that the Liberal Democrats ARE the Vince Cable for Chancellor Party, and if they actually want the most qualified guy to head the British Finance Ministry, then they should vote for the Liberal Democrats to get him.
You know- I think that Ian Hislop knows this too, even if his interviewer did not.
