Vince Cable reads my blog (maybe)

Following yesterday's blog, about how the Government was steaming ahead on far too many fronts, way too fast, comes confirmation from a Deep Throat-style source: no less than the Business Secretary, Vince Cable.

Here's what he told undercover reports from the Daily Telegraph:

We are trying to do too many things, actually... Some of them are Lib Dem inspired, but a lot of it is Tory inspired. The problem is not that they are Tory inspired, but that they haven’t thought them through. We should be putting a brake on them.

So there you have it - from the horse's mouth. The fact that he now might just have to resign down to the rest of his ill-advised comments is neither here nor there. What I'd say is: if you were serving in a government that you thought hadn't 'thought through' its ideas, would you want to stay?
