Vince Cable on Brexit -what does this dreadful man not understand about democracy?

Vince Cable is the man who has famously predicted 14 of the last three recessions. He is the man who, as business secretary, called on the FCA to investigate and prosecute wicked bears who were bringing down a Great British company called Quindell, now being investigated by the Serious Fraud Office. Cable backed the fraudsters then and now he is showing how, as a Liberal Democrat, he has a strange view of what Democracy means.

Cable says that if the referendum result is close and in favour of Brexit, say 51-49 and the turnout is 50% or less, Parliament should and would ignore what the people said and ensure that we stay in the EU after all. Presumably if it is 51-49 the other way on a low turnout, Parliament will "respect the wishes of the people".

Truly this man is a deranged old coot. His grasp of economics would shame the average GCSE student, his backing of the fraudsters behind the largest stock market fraud for 30 years, for which he has never apologised, is a stain on his career and now he shows his utter contempt for democracy.

Mad old Vince gets madder by the day.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Shame on PWC & Numis, Hat tip Jim Mellon and ouzo for a vindicated Lucian Miers

Jim Mellon says he loves listrening to my podcasts and has sent over a very interesting article following the pulled We Work IPO which I discuss at length. The into PureCircle (PURE) which Lucian has called brilliantly, notably here. Yesterday’s shock warning tells us so much about the disgraceful apathy of folks like Numis and PWC when evidence of aggressive accounting was there for all to see over many years. I discuss another company shown to be swmming with no trunks. It will not be the last.
