Just after the Election, Dr Cable was made President of the Board of Trade and Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills.
Despite these accolades, there wasn’t much smiling going on.
At the subsequent party conference, he said people had accused him of being grumpy because he wasn’t made Chancellor. He said, “what people don’t realise is … this IS my happy face” (to huge applause).
However, as this recently leaked picture reveals, there are clearly different levels of happiness and his visit to Yeovil in August put a proper smile on his face. Happy days.
