Vince Cable as you have never seen him before

We’re used to seeing Vince outlining his Liberal Democrat vision in typically thoughtful style. Action shots are more likely to be gliding effortlessly across the dance floor in a graceful and flawless foxtrot.

We’re used to seeing Willie Rennie dialling the fun in any photo opportunity up to the maximum level.

When Vince came to Aviemore yesterday to speak at Scottish Conference, he got a taste of photo-ops, Rennie style – and he loved it. He threw himself, quite literally, into the spirit of the occasion when he found himself next to a sign saying “Jump and Smile Adventure Park”

I have to say “Vince Cable does a star jump” is not a sentence I ever thought I’d write, but the evidence is here. He managed to jump higher than Willie, too.

That photo certainly captures the mood at the Conference. I know that federal party visitors were really impressed by our upbeat mood.

Now that I’m home and rested after a whirlwind two days, I’ll fill you in on the news from Aviemore, but in the meantime, just be cheered by this. And if you want to volunteer a caption this Sunday morning, who am I to stop you?
