Vince to tread the boards

There’s seemingly no end to the Lib Dem deputy leader’s talents – the party’s guest star at Prime Minister’s Questions, appearances on Strictly Come Dancing, and now, to top it all, Our Vince will make his debut appearance at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford next month

with a 45-minute talk about the state of the economy, as well as more general musings about his “life and times”. Afterwards, I’m told, the audience will be given the chance to pose direct questions. “It is rather like a reinvention of the public meeting,” explains [theatre impresario Clive] Conway. “I had thought about approaching him for some time. Then he did his Desert Island Discs show, which was great and everyone was talking about him, so we invited him to do it and he accepted.”

If it goes well, Cable’s talk could be the first of many. Though no firm plans exist as yet, I’m told he is keen to continue once the economy has calmed down and “he’s not so busy”.

  • Oh LFAT you are such a wit!

    Seriously, what a good idea – it offers engagement with the public, without the risks of the whole celebrity/reality nonsense.

    I see a 30-date tour coming on!

    [But don’t mention it to Lembit!]
