Vince Cable rejects Telegraph speculation of deal with Labour

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.
