Last quote by Vince Cable

Given its weakness, the government isn't in a position to bring sanctions against the House of Lords if they defy them. So I would hope that they are tough.feedback

There are numerous topics with which Vince Cable is associated, including Motors, media, and union. Most recently, Vince Cable has been quoted saying: “There were some quite generous tax cuts on capital gains. Why do that? There is actually a very strong case for aligning capital gains tax and income tax, which is a standard sort of tax avoidance. So, we must certainly do that.” in the article Vince Cable plans wealth taxes to win back Labour voters.

Vince Cable quotes

Jul 01 2017 - Northern Ireland

It's a scandal that this is shrouded in secrecy. We must know who the donors are and the fact that the DUP have such a prominent role in British public life means that these obscure transactions can no longer be hidden in Northern Ireland.feedback

Jun 21 2017

They will have to accept they are a minority government which will stay in power with the consent of the other parties in parliament and run a different style of government.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I believe I can, as leader, offer the energy, dedication and drive, as well as experience, to help – with you – to make our party a credible contender for power.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - Labour Party

With the prospect of another election looming large, we must be ready for the fight.feedback

Jun 20 2017

The "political winds are moving in our favour. With 20 years on the national political stage I am passionate as ever about our liberal values. I am ready to commit my energy, enthusiasm and experience to the task of leading the Liberal Democrats through what will be a period of chronic uncertainty.feedback

Jun 20 2017

The party has survived five difficult years of Coalition government and the disadvantage of the current unreformed voting system. We are now growing again and the political winds are moving in our favour.feedback

Jun 09 2017

It was just her misfortune that the Prime Minister decided to call an election when she had only had two years to prove herself in the job.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

The phrase 'Brexit means Brexit' was always a nonsense. The wider national picture is unclear. All I can say is: I and my party very explicitly committed ourselves not to joining a coalition or a pact. But we will be in constructive opposition.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Brexit

I think one of the conclusions which emerges from tonight, from the confusion, is that there is much division in the country, regionally, between generations, and I think we are going to have to learn to talk to each other much more constructively. Issues like personal care and, above all, like Brexit, are going to have to be approached in a consensual, cross-party way.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Brexit

Only the Lib Dems have a positive economic plan, including boosting spending while still achieving a surplus on the current budget. Theresa May keeps insisting that no deal is better than a bad deal, but an extreme Brexit could be disastrous.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Brexit

Since they are ruling out increases in income, corporate tax and VAT, we must assume that there will be an increase in national insurance and in various 'stealth taxes' yet to be specified. Both Labour and the Conservatives are adopting a Brexit strategy that seems explicitly designed to inflict maximum economic damage. The storm clouds are already gathering – we are seeing rising inflation, falling real wages and rising personal debt.feedback

Jun 03 2017

Since they are ruling out increases in income, corporate tax and VAT, we must assume that there will be an increase in national insurance and in various 'stealth taxes' yet to be specified. It undoubtedly raises suspicions.feedback

May 21 2017 - Scottish independence

I'd like to see it go away all the way to the end.feedback

May 14 2017 - Labour Party

We have hung in there and we have recovered and established a base and then there will be serious conversations about where British politics goes and how you create an alternative to the Conservatives which… is centrist, centre-left, pro-business, practical, offering an alternative to what is potentially a very damaging form of Conservatism.feedback

May 14 2017 - Labour Party

I think many of the Labour people are just waiting to see, get this election out of the way, I think frankly you will then have a lot of bloodletting because it is clear that Jeremy Corbyn isn't going to win, he is going to be trounced, the Labour Party's future is in great doubt.feedback

May 14 2017 - British elections 2017

Public-sector workers are facing a double blow at the hands of this Conservative government, with years of pitiful increases to pay combined with a Brexit squeeze caused by soaring inflation. Living standards are falling, prices are rising and nurses are going to food banks – but Theresa May doesn't care.feedback

May 11 2017

We've got used to being cautious these days. We got down to eight, we were in the 60s at one point, there's a big range of outcome.feedback

May 11 2017 - Brexit

The atmosphere amongst supporters is a bit like 1997, it's real enthusiasm. How far that translates into seats I don't know. It's Brexit that's changed my mind. I'm a bit of remainiac, I'm still in shock.feedback

May 11 2017

We got into this through a referendum and the only way of delegitimising the last one is to have another. We are trapped in that cycle.feedback

May 11 2017 - British elections 2017

I had been rather taken in by the straight-forward Theresa May, who I thought meant what she said. I sort of believed the mystique, this is someone who means what they say and doesn't play silly games. … So I was surprised.feedback

May 08 2017

And so I would find it difficult to vote against somebody like that, and I hope that our people around the country are discriminating and think and act in a constructive way.feedback

May 08 2017

There's value is value in a good relationship with people in other parties, and I particularly met a lot of people on the Labour side whose views are very close to mine. I'll just give one example – there's Rupa Huq who's the candidate in Ealing I think. Purely by coincidence I found myself, I think it was on Any Questions or one of those programmes in Warwick a few months ago, and I gave her a lift home back to Ealing. We talked for a couple of hours, and it was very clear that on almost every issue our views were almost identical.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Labour Party

There's a danger that if we don't find some way of working together what will happen [is] the Tories will massively increase their majority. You'll get a lot of right wing head-bangers coming in, you'll get more UKIP MPs, so you know we have to find some way of working together if there is an early election. At election voters can either back Theresa May and strengthen our negotiating hand for Brexit. Or risk the real threat of Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister in charge of our Brexit negotiations, weakening our economy and bringing grave uncertainty to our country.feedback

Apr 29 2017

What is so bizarre, so shocking, is that they are investing in property in other parts of the country. It makes no sense whatsoever. It did very serious damage to some councils. It should have been a warning to all corporate treasurers in local government to not go anywhere near this.feedback

Apr 29 2017

This is not a wise and sensible thing to do. Local authorities have a long and inglorious history of gambling in financial and property markets. When they are massively constrained in what they can do around council tax – and indeed commercial rates – they are trying to prevent even deeper and more damaging cuts by taking these unorthodox measures. In some cases they may succeed, but there is a very high risk of bankrupting their local authorities. It does suggest a certain degree of desperation.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Deutsche Bank

For Britain, the economic weather is arguably worse than it was before the credit crunch. The pound has plummeted, which is driving up prices and trapping consumers in a vicious Brexit squeeze.feedback

Apr 22 2017 - Brexit

Hammond admitted that taxes would have to rise, no doubt due to Theresa May's hard Brexit that could leave anything up to a £100bn Brexit black hole in the public finances. Theresa May should come clean on how she intends to fill the Brexit black hole if she won't increase taxes.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Scottish independence

The cost of defending Fred Goodwin and his associates is shocking. RBS' legal expenditure is obscene in the extreme. The Government should not be allowing a state-backed bank to spend what is therefore majority taxpayer money on defending one of the architects of the credit crunch and financial crisis.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Labour Party

I think it's just way beyond what's possible and I think our differences with him on substantive issues are so great that it's very difficult to see any form of coalition being formed.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Labour Party

No, there is no prospect of us having an electoral deal with the Labour Party but obviously we vote with individuals and with parties on particular issues. On the Europe issue for example our colleagues in Parliament voted with Ken Clarke and obviously there are like-minded Labour MPs and as legislation goes through Parliament, the so-called Repeal Act, our colleagues and hopefully some of us joining them, will be able to work with other parties.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

The government is ardently pursuing bilateral deals with the subcontinent and other non-EU countries – but why not just do business with our neighbours?I still recall the stinging rebuffs I received as a teenager pursuing some beautiful young woman with whom I was besotted: “Can’t you take a hint?” The British government is similarly failing to take the hint that the Indian authorities are not going to succumb to ardent wooing for a bilateral trade deal. A few months ago Theresa May was despatched from Delhi in a rather humiliating manner, and either the message has not yet reached the Treasury or the PM wants to see her chancellor sent packing in a similar way.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I'm sure they will justify it on the basis that they got competitive quotes for their consultants. It does seem rather a lot of money. I'm less concerned about the value of the money of the sale than actually stopping it taking place in conditions where the green purposes of the bank is lost. It's the issues of policy and principle, rather than these consultant's fees.feedback

Mar 11 2017 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

The Germans were incandescent. We think they even had [Angela] Merkel on the phone to persuade GM to reverse its decision.feedback

Mar 11 2017

Of course, we didn't have to deal with Brexit, which has thrown a huge spanner in the works this time around.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Car components have to go backwards and forwards across frontiers and they will require tariffs and checks.feedback

Dec 10 2016

This is yet again a threat to media plurality, choice, just as it was six years ago when I referred this to the competition authorities and it should be investigated.feedback

Oct 28 2016

I can't see how anything other than a customs union arrangement would satisfy the car industry.feedback

Oct 28 2016 - Single market

One of the key factors in keeping General Motors here was the confidence they had that we would stay within the European single market and the customs union.feedback

Dec 09 2011 - Single market

Both sides of the coalition accept, absolutely fundamentally, that our future lies in our very close relationship with Europe. We're members of the Single Market, it's going to stay that way, hundreds of thousands of British jobs, in all sectors of the economy, all parts of the country, depend on the Single Market.feedback

Sep 19 2011

The commission's key findings – to separate retail and casino banking – must be put in place.feedback

Sep 19 2011

We want to explore what is causing it and how it can be addressed.feedback

Sep 19 2011

A lot of responsibility rests on the Bank of England to relax monetary policy further linked to small business lending.feedback
