Zap! Pow! It's Vince Cable

The other day - Zap! - Vince Cable threatened the unions with new laws if strikes got out of hand.

Today - Pow! - he threatened the banks.

BBC News reports:
Business Secretary Vince Cable has said the government is willing to take "further action with tax on banks" if they do not increase lending to small and medium-sized enterprises.
It has been fashionable to say that Vince looks unhappy being in government. My theory is that he always looks like that and thoroughly enjoys wielding a bit of power.

Is it so hard? They have an agreed lending target. So annual windfall tax should be twice the value of the difference - that should concentrate their minds - job sorted; next!
