Vince to take over from Nick

by Stephen Tall on February 10, 2009

Before you get too shocked/excited (delete according to taste) by the news, Jon Craig at Sky News’s Boulton & Co blog gives the background:

Vince revealed at a Parliamentary Press Gallery lunch that he is to stand in for Nick Clegg for “two or three weeks” when the Lib Dem leader takes paternity leave. … Cable expects to stand in for Clegg at at least two Prime Ministers Questions next month in the run-up to Parliament’s Easter recess. … I don’t suppose Gordon Brown will be relaxed about the prospect of facing a few more painful jolts from the electric Cable once again.

Surely he has got to focus on his own business & that? Not as if the economics department is having a few dead months.

It’s Vince’s job – being Deputy Leader means that he’s obliged to step up to the plate when Clegg is away.

Not that any of us are complaining that Vince gets to hammer Brown again!

I agree that Brown should be stamped upon & excluded from polite society.

Have got no complaints if this is successful, I’m just being a bitch & that 🙂
