I am wondering whether or not Vince Cable is the new John Prescott, by which I mean someone who is rolled out annually at the Party Conferences merely to make the right noises amongst all the smoke and mirrors to distract the eye and the heart and to keep the park faithful and the rank and file happy / quiet with a combination of the usual 'right on' rhetoric, sound bites and radical sounding statements.

Yet, once the sound and fury have subsided little or nothing has changed... certainly not the Party policy or Party actions in the corridors of Whitehall. From a Lib Dem leadership point of view this must be worth a punt or two. I mean this worked for years for Tony Blair with New Labour, so there is no earthly reason why it should not work for Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems, who have happily climbed into bed with the Tories.
