Structured to follow the arc of a life in politics - from childhood aspirations and first attempts at getting elected, to navigating the back benches, ascending the greasy pole, dealing with detractors, facing crises, and finally escaping - this unique collection weaves together the wittiest, wisest and most acerbic political quotations from the last 2,000 years. Punctuated throughout by candid insights from Sir Vince Cable, this talk is a timeless and entertaining education in the dark arts of politics.Vince Cable is the former Liberal Democrat leader 2017-2019 and was Secretary of State for Business, Innovation, and Skills 2010-2015. Some of his achievements include launching the world's first ever Green Investment Bank that supports young people through apprenticeships and the promotion of socially responsible capitalism. He is currently a visiting professor at the London School of Economics. A Q&A Session will follow.
