Vince Cable Gets it Right for Once

I am no fan of Vince Cable.  In a Liberal Democrat Party that is full of opportunists, Vince Cable is opportunist-in-chief.

However, I can't help thinking that his decision to wind in proposed the "no fault dismissals" policy and change it to a proposal that makes it easier for employees to sack underperforming staff is the right one.

A policy that reduces the burden on employers, but prevents the opportunity for exploitation is right - it makes the right balance between reducing business regulation to make UK PLC more competitive and the need to protect workers.

I suspect this will upset some in my party, but there you go.
