Mr Cable was reacting to criticisms levelled at him by Jersey's Chief Minister, Frank Walker, for making 'inaccurate and ill-informed' comments about the way in which the Island's finance industry is regulated. However, Senator Walker is even more annoyed at Mr Cable's latest outburst. 'There are none so deaf as those who do not want to hear,' he said.
Mr Cable. . was uncompromising in his message, saying: 'Rather than react to pompous statements from the Chief Minister, I would simply point out that far more important people than me are preparing to move against offshore tax havens. US President-elect Obama has made clear his intention to do so.'
I suspect Vince Cable sees Sen Walker for exactly what he is.
