Is Cable getting too close to Labour.

That's the question on my lips today and anyone who saw him on telly with Ed Balls would I'm sure agree.

Cable sparked further anger with the Tory Right by agreeing to 'dilute immigration regulations' and block plans to 'make it easier to release dire under performing staff.'

The Business Secretary said that he "is not embarrassed to call himself a person of the centre left."

And he confirmed that he had recently been in contact with many leading figures from Labour including Ed Balls.
