DEMOCRACY-DENIER SIR Vince Cable has finally quit as leader of the Lib Dems following Prime Minister Theresa May’s shock resignation.
The 76-year-old arch Remoaner has followed in Brexit-betrayer May’s footsteps and quit his role as leader of his own party, adding his last day in the job would be the end of July.
He said: “I will be proud to hand over a bigger, stronger party on July 23rd.”
His announcement came a matter of hours after Mrs May’s, which saw her shed tears on the famous steps of No10, and has since caused a stir among remainers, as die-hard democracy-deniers are flocking to replace him as the next poster boy for anti-patriotic sentiment.
His resignation letter reads: “I said earlier this year that the time would soon come to hand over the leadership of the party to a new generation. That process begins today: I will be proud to hand over a bigger, stronger party on July 23rd.
“If you have friends who would want to vote in the election to choose my successor urge them to join by Friday 7 June. Every new member an help shape our future.
“There are major challenges ahead. One is to win, finally, the battle to stop Brexit. Our campaigning has given hope, now we need to secure a referendum in Parliament, and then win it.”
