Peter Oborne goes LibDem

The usually arch-Tory boy Peter Oborne has just posted a piece praising Lib Dem Treasury spokesman Vince Cable.

In it he says;

“So what should we do? One part of the answer is to cherish those politicians who really are honest and decent. It is important that this number includes David Cameron.

Top of the list, however, is the wonderful Lib Dem Treasury spokesman Vince Cable, who claimed next to nothing in allowances, bought no flats, stole no taxpayers’ money and made the daily Tube journey from his home in Twickenham to Westminster. (And, of course, he got it dead right on the economy.) How we need him as our prime minister!”

Has the expenses controversy really taken so much dye out of the wool? How much were we all expecting of these guys?
