Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg is committing his party to abolishing prison sentences for the possession of drugs, including heroin and cocaine.
Cable said he had no knowledge of the 'reprehensible' polls leaked by Lord Oakeshott on Nick Clegg's leadership.
The Liberal Democrat peer is taking a leave of absence from the Lords and resigning from the party, but is he the 'busted flush' some think?
Nick Clegg's role in forming the Coalition government will be at the centre of a one-off drama on Channel 4 in the run-up to next year's election.
The programme, which has been written by playwright James Graham, will follow the Liberal Democrat leader during the 2010 election and the wrangling that followed.

What we try to capture in this drama is the tension, the high stakes, and the frequent farcical and absurd nature of what happens when a power is wrangled, negotiated and fought over like children trading cards in the playground.
The 90-minute film, with the working title Coalition, is the latest in a string of political dramas on the channel.
Abolishing prison sentences for drug possession will free up resources to go after the "Mr Bigs", Justice Secretary Simon Hughes told Good Morning Britain.
Responding to criticism of the Lib Dem manifesto pledge, announced today by party leader Nick Clegg, Mr Hughes said: "the people who simply are picked up for having drugs which they are using themselves...and we don't believe that sending them to prison which costs the state a lot of money...is the answer and we would use the money we save...to concentrate on the 'Mr Bigs', the people who sell drugs, the people who promote the drugs, the people who import the drugs."
A mother whose heroin-addicted son committed suicide told Good Morning Britain a bit of her "wishes" he had gone to prison.
Elizabeth Burton-Phillips, who has written a book about her experience and set up charity DrugFAM, spoke out against Nick Clegg's Lib Dem manifesto pledge, announced today, to abolish prison sentences for drug possession.
Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has explained why his party has pledged to call for drug users to avoid jail if caught in possession of illegal substances.
Nick Clegg has called Boris Johnson a "conventional" politician who "treats his political ambition a bit like he treats his hair."
Clegg said the Mayor of London, who announced his intention to stand at the next General Election, liked to pretend he did not care about his appearance or career - but was actually "fixated" with them.
"The thing about Boris Johnson is despite all the kind of clumsiness and bumbliness, he's actually a really, really ambitious politician," the Deputy Prime Minister said on his regular LBC radio phone in.
"He wants everyone to think that he doesn't really care, but he actually really, really does care."
Some future new members of the EU should be made to wait for more than the current limit of seven years before their citizens gain the right to settle and work in the UK, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said.
And countries like Britain need to be given the right to "put on the brakes" if excessive numbers of migrants arrive after the lifting of so-called "transition controls".
Mr Clegg also said that a loophole allowing early entry for entrepreneurs should be scrapped, to stop immigrants posing as self-employed businessmen to get into the country only to take up low-paid work in restaurants or farms.
Teachers, doctors and social workers will be given extra training to identify and help girls who might be at risk of becoming victims of female genital mutilation (FGM).
The measures will see new guidance for professionals become part of compulsory training in public sector organisations.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will set out a package of measures to tackle FGM at a summit tomorrow.
The plan will involve supporting a small network of "community champions" to encourage volunteers who want to provide help in areas affected by FGM.
Nick Clegg has launched an attack on Prime Minister's Questions, calling the weekly debate a "complete farce" that ordinary people find "totally off-putting".
Speaking on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch programme, the Liberal Democrat leader said: "It's just people... shouting at each other, it's a very concentrated, gladiator, sort of spectacle.
"There are some people who might like it, my own view is most normal people - and most normal people don't follow the ins and outs of politics - find the whole thing totally off-putting," he argued.
The Deputy Prime Minister also made broader criticisms of Parliament, which he said was "stuck in the past".
"Some of the pomp and ceremony is all right but some of it is just so out of date. This is a place which had a 19th-century shooting gallery but didn't have a creche until quite recently," he said.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has poked fun at the Daily Mail by posting a photo on Twitter of what he is wearing today.
What I wore to the office today. Fingers crossed the Mail approves. Hope I don't look too '80s cabin attendant'. http://t.co/bVy7wCkfrG
Mr Clegg said he hoped his attire wasn't too "80s cabin attendant" after the Mail did an article on what promoted female MPs were wearing.
The Mail websiteis well known for commenting on what celebrities and public figures are wearing.
