Vince could have saved the world

I don't understand Politicians. I love the gory exchanges and in depth scandal that are postumously unarchived, but really...not content with fake Sheiks or whistle blowing websites that have received global notoriety or in fact similar instances of "constituents" having simple yet revealing conversations; the Business Secretary goes and blows off his mouth. If it weren't for his slightly slimy demeanour since agreeing to the coalition, I would feel sorry for Cable. But, noting his recent change of politics I have to admit that I don't care now. His stance against Murdoch is a wholly legitimate one, and one that would possibly have saved the world, but being in a position that requires an objective stance on things appears to have went over his head. (as has the power he has recently gained)
Tisk tisk Vince, when will politicians ever learn.
