Cable attacked Labour and the Tory party, saying Jeremy Corbyn was “intent on bashing business and the banks”, while the Conservatives pursued a “damaging hard Brexit”.

He said the Liberal Democrats were campaigning to keep the UK in the Single Market after Brexit.

It comes after Corbyn said it was right that bankers feared the prospect of a Labour government, pledging to fix what he describes as a "broken system".

The Labour leader was responding to concerns raised by Morgan Stanley; the bank has said that a Corbyn government would be worse for investors than a hard Brexit.
