Vince Cable is 76-years old, a respected economist, former government minister and leader of the U.K.’s Liberal Democrat Party. It’s a sign of the fevered nature of British politics that on Thursday he will unveil a manifesto proclaiming “Bollocks to Brexit.”

Cable is not associated with rowdy street politics but, buoyed by much better than expected results in last week’s local elections, he’s looking to tap into the anger of people who want to remain in the European Union to win their votes in European Parliament elections on May 23.
