Former leader of the Liberal Democrats Sir Vince Cable joins It’s Bloody Complicated to share the lessons of his long and varied political life and tell us about his new book, Money and Power.
In uncertain times for progressives of all stripes, not least the Lib Dems, it was great to get Vince's unique perspective.
Vince Cable was MP for Twickenham from 1997 to 2015 and from 2017 to 2019, and as leader of the Liberal Democrats from 2017–19. He served in the Conservative–Lib Dem coalition government as Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills from 2010 to 2015, and as deputy leader of the Lib Dems from 2006 to 2010.
