David Cameron’s 'Living within our means' tax speech, Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor, Vince Cable said:
"David Cameron’s vision for the UK economy is just an empty shell.
"The Conservatives’ attempts to make a virtue of having no policies will not convince anyone.
"You cannot simply claim you will make Government more efficient and improve public services without offering any concrete solutions for how you will do it.
"In reality, to reduce taxes and make government more efficient, tough choices about all areas of government spending must be made.
"David Cameron insists on talking about sharing the proceeds of growth, despite the fact that all experts expect growth to fall. What exactly is he planning to share?
"This hotchpotch of vacuous platitudes merely confirms how hopelessly ill-prepared the Conservative party is for power."
