Adrian Beecroft labels Vince Cable 'a socialist' after criticism

Prime Minister David Cameron has defended a controversial report by Tory party adviser Adrian Beecroft.

The report, which suggests proposals to make it easier for businesses to sack workers, was dismissed by the Business Secretary Vince Cable as "nonsense".

Now, Mr Beecroft has accused Mr Cable of being a "socialist" who had done very little to support business.
