Though the move has been expected since October, Nick Clegg is due to officially sack Vince Cable as the Lib Dems’ economy spokesman tomorrow, according to Political Scrapbook.

Writing for the Speccie, ex-Lib Dem hack Charlotte Henry notes that Cable’s demotion at the expense of a leadership rival (Danny Alexander) could indicate that ‘Saint Vince’ is a political gonner.

The move, effectively a mini election reshuffle, may leave some wondering why HMT chief secretary Danny Alexander wasn’t already the party’s economics spokesman.

There’s more on Political Scrapbook – give it a visit.
