Vince Cable: From Poppleton Road Primary School to Westminster

The Yorkshire Evening Press - York's daily paper - has an interview with one of the city's most famous sons:

It was his performances in the Commons, while interim Lib Dem leader, that shot Cable to national prominence, but the seeds were sown back in York, on the stage of the old Nunthorpe Grammar School.

“One thing at Nunthorpe made the big difference,” he says.

“I was actually a very shy student, but I was given the lead role in Macbeth, and that is where I learned to stand on stage in front of an audience.”
