Shock of the week
It's incredibly rare for the Liberal Democrats to ever deliver a good joke - normally they're too busy being total jokes - but the prize this week must go to Vincent Cable, not normally the most dynamic even by Lib Dem standards.

Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"?
