Vince Cable pointed out at the Lib Dems Scottish conference that whilst the Tories might be apologising now for calling for less scrutiny of banks and the City of London and for not seeing the current financial crisis coming, there is something the Tories don't want people to know. Speaking about "Call me Dave" Cameron, Vince said
"It would have been rather bigger of him if he had also admitted that the Liberal Democrats did see this coming, and we did warn about it,"
Indeed I seem to recall the Tories attempting to ridicule Vince Cable for what he was saying 18 months ago. Still, when your party is essentially funded by hedge funds managers and people with their noses in the trough in the City of London, you cannot expect the Tories to really do anything about it.
