Nice line from a commentator on Question Time:
“When Vince Cable is to the right of Peter Hitchen then the Liberal democrats really are finished.”
I think he’s right.
Vince had a torrid time and looked profoundly uncomfortable. Most of the programme he could not lift his eyes from the table in front of him.
And tonight we learn that his successor as Lib Dem deputy leader is planning to challenge the budget plan to increase VAT.
This is all going to end in tears very soon.
