Business Secretary Vince Cable insisted a cap on European Union migrants is “not going to happen” and accused the Tories of being in a “panic” over immigration.

Referring back to previous periods of heightened tensions, including Enoch Powell’s notorious “rivers of blood” speech, he warned politicians they had a responsibility to “give the facts” and not “resort” to populist tactics.

It comes after party leader Nick Clegg pledged to block any fresh attempts to curb EU immigration, insisting “this is where we draw the line”.
