Dead cat alert: yesterday’s man talking about Uighurs on a failing news channel is a DISTRACTION

‘Demand better’: That’s what the sign says on the wall behind Vince Cable and that’s what you need to do – demand better than him.

Apparently certain people are making a fuss because former Liberal Democrat minister Vince Cable said the Uighurs haven’t suffered genocide under China.

He did this while having a pint with swivel-eyed goon Nigel Farage on GB News, after publishing an article in The Independent.

Who cares what Cable thinks?

He’s yesterday’s man. So is Farage.

The whole stunt looks like it was cooked up to boost ratings for a failing far-right fake-news channel.

I hope no Vox Political reader is weak-minded enough to let Cable, Farage or GB News lead them by the nose in such a cynical way.

    This is the man who was the economics advisor for one of the oil companies when they were polluting the Niger delta and getting the Nigerian government to wage war on local protesters. If he had no qualms working for a company that did that, he’s not going to have any qualms about lying on behalf of China. There should therefore be absolutely no need for anyone to pay any attention to him whatsoever. Just like his appearance on GB News to tell these untruths are an excellent reason for decent people to avoid the channel like the plague.

    The only Uighurs suffering under China’s re-education programme are the terrorist elements or terrorist enablers (apart from those who lost their jobs because of US bullying sanctions).
    There are people who actually know what is going on in the Xianging province who know what is happening and much of the problem in China with regards coverage of any negative press is from establishment mouth pieces in the pocket of the Corporate Elites and the US who instigate much of the propaganda.
    Vince Cable is a non entity as far as I’m concerned but using his words as a prop to support corrupt presstitutes is not a good look. If the France,UK,US(otherwise known as FUCKUS) was not so Sino and Russo phobic we might actually have a future in the rise of the socialist giants who will eventually leave the US and it’s lap dog Britain far behind.
    This is not one of your finest posts.
    This is one of the best reporting from a favoured source:
    I have others if you really want to know what is actually going on though I doubt you will have any interest, but I can hope.

      I know how you feel about this and am happy to publish your comment as an example of the other point of view on Uighurs – a minority viewpoint. History will show who’s right.

      The point of the article was that the issue was being stirred up to create a bit of unwarranted heat around GB News. Surely you’ll agree that such behaviour is un-called for, no matter what you believe about it?

        I would agree the comment about the dead cat opinion regarding Cable and the equally odious Farage were worth a mention, which is why I “liked” the comment and it was as you say a distraction or perhaps even a head line where otherwise there would have been none – if they are that desperate.
