Cable in charge of UK broadband

Vince Cable that is - the most popular politician in the country until the General Election, a man who can dance his way round a coalition and Brussels.
He has the fastest average broadband speeds in the UK in his constituency - almost 10Mbps - and is committed to market-based development and support for rural areas (note that unlike our old Labour government which was exclusively an urban party, both Tories and LibDems have huge swathes of rural England, Wales and Scotland).
As a former Shell Chief Economist, he also understands investment, long-term strategy, innovation-based economics and the occasional monopolistic tendency of big business!
This man is a serious heavyweight - but will have to deal with bank lending to SMEs and green business first.
