Vince Cable

Vince Cables stock started soaring the moment the economic situation turned. The once obscure rather grey Liberal Democrat is now well known throughout the land as the politician who makes the most sense. But in the last fortnight he is one of the few to emerge unscathed by the tawdry expenses scandals and therefore one of the few MP's brave enough to stand before us in the TV Studios. You might not want to take him on a stag night in Blackpool but a thoroughly decent chap all the same.
