Vince Cable: Toby Young appointment is completely unsustainable

by Steve Beasant on 7 January, 2018

Following the Prime Minister’s admission this morning that she was unaware of Toby Young’s offensive comments prior to his appointment to the Office for Student’s board, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said:

“Theresa May stood by her new universities regulator, when she should be firing him – his appointment is completely unsustainable. This is a man who has a record of misogyny and backs eugenics, screening out people of supposedly low intelligence.

“This shows bad judgement and, as the Prime Minister effectively admitted, a lack of due diligence. It seems all you need to survive is be a friend of Boris Johnson.”
