Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable condemns Donald Trump's 'dreadful' tweet about Parsons Green terror attack

The leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Vince Cable, has condemned Donald Trump's “dreadful” tweet about the Parsons Green terror attack.

Speaking at the Lib Dem party conference, he said Britain had the best security services in the world and the US president was out of line undermining them.

Following the attack on a packed rush-hour Tube on Friday morning, Mr Trump tweeted suggesting that the suspect had been known to police.

He wrote: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be pro active!"

Sir Vince told delegates in Bournemouth: "The one really discordant part of this whole horrible incident was President Trump's tweet.

"If you noticed this dreadful insinuation that somehow or other our security services were falling down on the job without a shred of evidence.

"I happen to know because I was in the Cabinet for five years, I've worked very closely with them, we have, probably, the best security services in the world."

Following the President’s tweet, Mrs May scolded his assertions, saying: " ;I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.

"The police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible."

Scotland Yard shot also down Trump's "unhelpful" comment in a statement, and described the tweets as “pure speculation”.

During his party’s annual conference, Sir Vince said he wants the Lib Dems to be the centre of the fight against "extreme [and] jarring" inequality.

He said he would focus on issues such as affordable housing and funding for further education and universities.

In an article for Lib Dem Voice, Sir Vince said the party "must be about more than Europe", warning other policies were being drowned out by the Brexit debate.

"One of the things I've tried to open as a big, overarching theme is the whole issue around inequalities, which have become absolutely extreme and particularly in the wake of the financial crisis," he told the Press Association.

"There were a whole lot of advantages that older people have that the younger generation don't have, and it's producing some jarring inequalities, a feeling that young people can be worse off than their parents.

"I want to address the whole of that issue, look at affordable housing on a much, much bigger scale, looking at some of the opportunities in education, revisit the issue of how you fund universities and further education.

"I want the Liberal Democrats to be absolutely at the centre of that debate."
