Vince Cable coming to Solihull

VINCE Cable is to address Solihull and Meriden Liberal Democrats.

The party’s shadow chancellor and deputy leader will be the guest speaker at its annual dinner at the Ramada Jarvis Hotel on Thursday.

He was party leader from October to December 2007 ahead of the election of Nick Clegg.

More than 100 party members are expected to attend, including Lib Dem Solihull MP Lorely Burt.

The local party said in a statement: “Mr Cable has earned respect from all quarters for his commentary throughout the recession, and was voted as the most popular choice for Chancellor of the Exchequer in a national opinion poll.

“Vince will outline his party's prescription for economic recovery and will also deliver a rallying call for local members ahead of Lorely Burt's re-election campaign next year.”
