Vince Cable: Lib Dems are the natural party of business

This morning, Vince Cable launched the Lib Dem Business and Entrepreneurs’ Network. It already has 80 leading figures from the business community, including angel investor Andrew Dixon and Chair of Allied Irish Banks Richard Pym.

He explained why the Lib Dems were the natural party of business:

And showed how the Government is letting business down:

Vince added:

Under my leadership, I will ensure the Liberal Democrats are a strong voice for business and economic common sense.

We will provide a sound and sensible plan to protect our economy, jobs and tax revenue from Brexit.

Labour under Corbyn are intent on bashing business, while the Tories are pursuing an extreme version Brexit that will do permanent damage to our economy.

We will provide a natural home for businesses and entrepreneurs.

We would build on the industrial strategy that we introduced in government, keep Britain at the heart of the single market and pursue ambitious reforms at home that will support businesses and boost growth.

Richard Pym, Chair Allied Irish Banks plc, Co-Chair and Founder Member of LDBEN, stated:

The Conservatives have betrayed business with their wealth-destroying approach to Brexit.  The Labour Party scare business with their anti-capitalism rhetoric.

In contrast the values of modern businesses are liberal values.

Business leaders and entrepreneurs are increasingly backing the Liberal Democrats because the party is now the natural party for business.

  • Great initiative – can we spend a bit more money on the banner next time?

    I thoroughly approve. My business is going quite well recently but it’s such hard work – businesses deserve support (but not unconditionally).

    I’m moving to France over the next four weeks too. I’ll be sad if free movement stops. The Tories can never be the party of business, the youth or the internationalist whilst they are so nationalist. Labour aren’t supportive of businesses either. They give to small businesses with one hand and take from the other.
