The clapped out politician who represents the increasingly isolated and out of touch Liberal Democrats has sparked fury after a speech he made at his party's spring party conference in Southport. The Lib Dem leader said too many older people who voted Leave longed for a world where "faces were white".
The Liberal Democrats are actively campaigning for a second referendum on the final Brexit deal which goes against all of the advice given during the referendum.
Cable said: "I've myself been on a journey. I confess that my own initial reaction to the referendum was to think maybe there was little choice but to pursue Brexit. I thought, you know, the public had voted to be poorer - well, that was their right.What changed my mind was the evidence that Brexit had overwhelmingly been the choice of the older generation. 75% of under 25s voted to remain. But 70% of over 65s voted for Brexit."
Many have pointed out the blatant inaccuracies of his statement in that of the 17.4 million people who voted to Leave the EU it was a wide spectrum of people of all ages and races and represents highly lazy political thinking on his part.
Sir Vince also took a swipe at his own party's lack of diversity it has a far worse proportion of non-white MPs and candidates than Labour or the Conservatives in the last elections, he thundered: "Looking around the auditorium, we are very, very white. We must prioritise making our party more ethnically diverse."
