[100 word news] – Vince Cable launches leadership bid, and warns public of ‘Brexit iceberg’.

Former business secretary Vince Cable has launched a bid to become leader of the Lib Dems, saying:

‘I am ready to commit my energy, enthusiasm and experience to the task of leading the Liberal Democrats through what will be a period of chronic uncertainty’.

‘With the economy approaching the Brexit iceberg, Liberal Democrats need more than ever to warn of the dangers ahead and the need for a new course’.

‘The Conservatives are in disarray and in retreat’

‘The Labour Party outperformed expectations but complacently believes that ‘one more heave’ will see it into office’.

‘But an economic policy based on offering lots of free things lacks economic credibility, and will be found out. Investing in infrastructure, rather than borrowing for everyday running costs is credible’.

‘There is a big space in British politics which I am determined that we should occupy’.
