Vince Cable at his best or... What we shall be missing in the general election campaign
Back in June of last year I wrote that Nick Clegg would be making a mistake if he appointed Danny Alexander as our economic spokesman for the 2015 general election.
He has now made that mistake and I hold by what I wrote six months ago.
The video above (thanks to Nick Thornsby for the link) gives us a glimpse of what we shall be missing. It shows Vince Cable's contribution to the Budget debate in March of last year.
It shows a passage I quoted at the time, describing it as a "master class". You can watch the whole speech - and the many interventions - on Youtube,
