Keep your head down folks because the toys are flying out of the parliamentary pram today.
Adrian Beecroft (65), (Multi-Millionaire – at the last count he’s worth over £100 million), (ex ‘Dawn Capital’ chairman), (Oxbridge educated) , (Conservative donor through & through) is one of number ten’s frontline millionaire business ‘advisors’. (Surprise, surprise).
Beecroft has said this morning that Vince Cable is nothing more than a ‘Socialist’ (surely a red rag to a yellow rosetted old bull if ever there was one) who ‘appears to do very little for business’ (charmed, I’m sure).
Meaning…. Cable won’t stand idly by whilst multi-millionaire bosses like Beecroft screw employees over by putting in place a legal framework by which workers can be ‘sacked’ without ‘notice’. (aka go back to a Catherine Cookson ‘out on yer ear old son’, sort of business world.
Of course had Cable have been under Beecroft’s employ he would have ‘sacked’ his bald-headed lazy worker without notice.
This is exactly what happens in politics when you have a Conservative Party wanting to rule the roost but have Lib Dem cuckoos sharing the same Downing Street nest.
Of course in an ideal world, Beecroft and his mates would be calling for an election but they know damn well that if they did that they would either end up worse off or back in the same nest with the very same cuckoos (or sharing the nest with Eurosceptic cuckoos that bite).
If you think this ‘Monty Cammo’s Flying Circus’ will rest easy in its ‘marriage of convenience’ bed for another three years, ‘then by the living gawd who made you, you’re a better man than I am, Gunga-Din.’
That’s Kipling, you know!
That’s ‘Rudyard’, not the geezer who makes the cakes!
