Liberal Democrat leader, Vince Cable, has been reported to the Police over a recent speech with branded leave voters as racist.
Mr Cable was reported to the police by Mr Kurten, a UKIP leadership candidate.
Cable branded leave voters as racist and only wanted to see Britain full of ‘white faces’ after Brexit.
He said in his speech: “Too many (leave voters) were driven by nostalgia, for a world where passports were blue, faces were white and a map was coloured in imperial pink”.
Mr Kurten said: “It is a terrible slur to suggest that Brexit voters were motivated by some kind of racism.
“Brexit is about freedom and democracy, and there are many people like me, who support Brexit but do not have white skin.
“Attempting to link Brexit with having ‘nostalgia for white faces’ is also nonsensical, as cutting immigration from European countries will reduce net migration from countries which have a white majority.”
He went on: “In Vince Cable’s statement h, appears to demonstrate hostility to Brexit voters who are also white.
“It is possible that this is a hate crime as defined by the Crown Prosecution Service guidelines which includes perceived hostility on the basis of a protected characteristic such as race.
“I have reported the incident to the police so they can investigate the matter further.”
I do hope the police take this report seriously.
REMOANER Sir Vince Cable reported to police for ‘OVERSPENDING’ in general election campaign
It has been reported today that one of the United Kingdom’s most high-profile Remoaners and the leader of the Liberal Democrats Sir Vince Cable has been reported to police over allegations of overspending during the last general election campaign.
There is an incredibly stringent set of guidelines of spending rules that need to be following when a candidate is standing for an election on either a parliamentary or local council level, and police will now have to investigate these allegations to see if an offence has been committed.
This news comes after a number of Conservative candidates have been investigated over similar allegations since the end of the 2017 general election campaign.
According to a report in The Express:
Stuart Coster, a co-founder of the People’s Pledge — which campaigned for an EU referendum — has sent a dossier to the Metropolitan police which details what he claims is evidence that the Liberal Democrat leader overspent by at least £4,000 during the general election campaign.
Sir Vince’s spending return during the general election was just £630 below the legal spending limit of £13,517.
However, Mr Coster has claimed that some of the current Liberal Democrat leader’s “personal” costs have been wrongly allocated to national spending.
The People’s Pledge co-founder also claims to have found undeclared leaflets, stickers and stakeboards, and no invoices for office equipment, photography or web services.
Last night a party spokesman denied the allegations and said: “All election spending in Twickenham was within the limits and correctly accounted for.
“This is a vexatious complaint intended to distract attention from the best-attended Lib Dem conference in our history.”
It remains to be seen whether there is any truth in the allegations, or if it is indeed some sort of ‘political game,’ but in any case it will be an unwelcome distraction for Sir Vince who is now dedicating his time to making sure that Brexit doesn’t happen somehow.
In recent weeks, the party has had a very visible ‘reverse Brexit’ persona – the leader himself was spotted at an anti-Brexit rally in London.
