Both yesterday and today the Daily Telegraph has reported that Gordon Brown is thinking of asking Liberal Democrats, including Vince Cable, to join the government in a major post-European elections reshuffle.
Vince’s response when asked about the story on TV this morning was very robust and clear:
I’m part of the Liberal Democrat team. We’re fighting to maximise our number of votes and seats in upcoming election. I’ve no interest whatever in being co-opted by a Labour government that has become, quite frankly, discredited.
