The Mash's take
Sir Vince Cable has lashed out at hardline Brexit “martyrs” who view economic pain as a price worth paying to break away from Brussels.
Cable, 74, added that the “self-declared martyrs” appeared to be “predominantly elderly”.
“The martyrdom of the old comes cheap, since few have jobs to lose,” he said. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... are_btn_tw" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The Mash's take
VINCE Cable has unveiled plans to appeal to younger voters by saying he is going to vote for Jeremy Corbyn too.
Cable, who became Lib Dem leader after the only challenger was former Wimbledon and Newcastle United boss Joe Kinnear, is hoping the approach will entice a new generation to the tiny party.
At a party event in Dorset, Cable said: “I think Corbyn is ‘the bomb’. Like Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Jet Set Willy.”
He added: “I know it’s pretty uncool for people over 50 to say they vote Lib Dem so getting 16-25 years to vote for us must be totally red hot.
“Which I assume is what young people say about things that are really ‘uncool’.”
Cable added that Theresa May was totally ‘whack’ before doing the devil’s horns sign and attempting to skateboard off the stage.
