Vince Cable quotes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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