Is Vince Cable on the verge of quitting?

Vince Cable is rumoured to be on the verge of quitting the coalition government after he was rebuked in his comments regarding immigration into the UK. Various spokespeople within number 10 Downing St. have spoken to the press suggesting that comments associated with a Vince Cable regarding the immigration cap not working are incorrect. Since his comments earlier this week Vince Cable has been fairly quiet on the matter and those within the inner circles of government are growing more concerned.

Vince Cable was seen as someone who would bring strength and stability to the UK coalition government although it is believed he was initially after the role of Chancellor of the Exchequer. Indeed it is known that that his relationship with George Osborne is strained to say the least and it would be fair to say that the two parties are not the best of friends. There has already been friction between the two heavyweights of the UK government and this week's comments regarding the immigration issue will not help.

However, Vince Cable seems to have an ally in John Cridland, the deputy director general of the CBI, who would appear to agree with his initial comments regarding the proposed immigration cap.
