Business Secretary Vince Cable has been keeping a low profile in recent months, but he's coming back with a vengeance as the media silly season kicks in with a speech today slamming the 'rip-off culture' that is ingrained in our banking sytem.

Fronting up a do by consumer group Which? – and likely to be given a standing ovation – Mr Cable will tell the audience that our banks are routinely over-charging us and making excessive profits. Good ol' Vince. He certainly picks his targets.
