The Business Secretary has said that taxes must rise to help cut the deficit, whoever is in government after 2015.
Vince Cable claimed the Conservatives' plans to reduce the deficit primarily through spending cuts were "implausible".
I think the plans that he's set out are actually implausible, I don't think they can be realised...whatever government comes in, even a Conservative government, is going to have to increase taxes, for example.
There is going to have to be a better balance, but let's discuss the options and let's have set out before the public and Parliament what the different possibilities are.
The Chancellor must tell voters whether what he's proposing is really a re-think of the role of the state.
For all the criticism of spending reductions under the Coalition, there are actually more cuts to come after 2015.
Could what seems like a lifeline for buyers - the overhaul of the unpopular stamp duty - actually make it harder to land a property?
