The event scheduled for tonight (16 January) with Vince Cable has been postponed due to last night’s Brexit vote and the vote of no confidence that is taking place today in Parliament.

Please accept our apologies.

We will be in touch once a new date has been scheduled for this event.

Vince Cable MP will speak about his experience as a cabinet minister dealing with the economic fallout of the financial crash. He is also the author of ‘The Storm’ and ‘After The Storm’, both books about the 2008 world economic crisis. Vince Cable is also an alumni of the Young Fabians.

Vince Cable (@vincecable) is MP for Twickenham since 2017 and Leader of the Liberal Democrats.

Jonathan Hopkin (@jrhopkin) is Associate Professor of Comparative Politics in the LSE Department of Government.

This event is co-hosted by the LSE Department of Government and the Young Fabians Alumni Network.

The Department of Government (@LSEGovernment) is home to some of the most internationally respected experts in politics and government; producing influential research that has a global impact on policy, and delivering world-class teaching to our students.

Please note that Vince Cable's appearance is subject to parliamentary business.
