Cable resignation rumours denied
Lib Dem peer Baroness Tonge has said that Vince Cable should quit the Governmnet over David Cameron's use of the EU veto. Speaking on BBC Radio 5live, the former MP said Nick Clegg's leadership is in jeopardy if he approved veto.
Earlier today a spokesman for Vince Cable has denied rumours that he is planning to resign over the outcome of the Brussels summit. They told PoliticsHome that the claims were "categorically untrue - Vince has not intention of resigning". The Observer reported this morning that Dr Cable was "furious when he learned what had happened" at the Brussels summit. The paper claims Dr Cable "will speak out aggressively against Cameron's veto; his decision is whether to resign to do so or say so in office, courting his sacking".
