Sir John Vincent Cable (born 9 May 1943), known as Sir Vince Cable, is a British politician who is the Leader of the Liberal Democrats and the Member of Parliament for Twickenham. He was the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills from 2010 to 2015.
Cable studied Economics at Cambridge and Glasgow, then worked as an economic adviser to the Government of Kenya between 1966-1968 and to the Commonwealth Secretary-General in the 1970s and 1980s. From 1968-1974 he lectured in Economics at Glasgow University. He served as Chief Economist for Shell from 1995-1997. In the 1970s, Cable was active in the Labour Party, becoming a Labour councillor in Glasgow. In 1982, he defected to the newly formed Social Democratic Party, which later amalgamated with the Liberal Party to form the Liberal Democrats, and he stood unsuccessfully for parliament in the general elections of 1970, 1983, 1987, and 1992 before being elected for Twickenham in 1997.
Cable became the Liberal Democrats' Treasury Spokesman in June 2003 and was elected as Deputy Leader in March 2006, serving as Acting Leader for two months in 2007 from Menzies Campbell's resignation until the election of Nick Clegg on 18 December. Cable resigned from both of these positions in May 2010 after becoming Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills in the Cameron–Clegg coalition government.
Following the 2017 snap election and resignation of Tim Farron, Cable stood in the 2017 Liberal Democrats leadership election and was elected unopposed.
