The Nasty Side Of British Business Calls Vince Cable A “Socialist”

Adrian Beecroft – The Nasty Side Of British Business

I agree, “socialist” is a term of abuse.  Anyone who can seriously suggest this irrational philosophy as a model on which to run a 21st century economy is at least deluded, if not a saboteur.


Adrian Beecroft, founder of the “Wonga” payday loan company describes Vince Cable as a “socialist” and says he is “not fit for office” in the Daily Telegraph today.

But any sort of abuse coming from a man who runs the disgusting, exploitative, shameful “Wonga”  is hypocrisy at its very worst.

Wonga is a despicable business, based on usury and exploitation of poor people. What is does used to be illegal and it still should be.  Morally, Beecroft is a criminal both in intent and action.

If he calls the moderate, independent, Dr Cable a “socialist” then I call him a fascist.  Those of us who would like to see a modern, inclusive, intelligent Tory party reject out of hand any contribution from this man who represents the very worst, nastiest side of British business.

  2. If it set me aside as having different principles than him, I should consider myself honoured to be called a socialist by that predatory loan shark. Cable could have come off much worse by getting the twat’s seal of approval.

    3,000,000% APR anyone? Get it while it’s hot.
