Nick Clegg: “Heads Will Need to Roll”

Nick Clegg is about to change his tune on what he knew about Lord Rennard and any cover up. Those drafting his statement might like to look at what he told ITV at the peak of the BBC Savile cover up:

“Clearly what happened on a large scale was people felt so intimidated by fame and power that they didn’t speak up for a long period of time.

Serious questions need to be asked and if after we find out what’s happened it’s clear that people have turned a blind eye or, worse still connived with it then of course they’re going to have to be held to account and heads – if that turns out to be the case – will need to roll.”

Perfect.

    I certainly didn’t know anything. I can’t be clearer than that can I?

    And if I did know anything you would expect me to lie about it as other LibDem MP’s have …. Clegg, Huhne, Laws, ……..

    A culture of bullying says:

    I dared to mention Schrodinger cat’s comment about taking his Treaty of Rome on holiday so that he can quote it at Jonny Foreigner (see http://order-order.com/2013/02/03/read-guido-in-the-sun-today/#comment-1579849), and queried (i) why he constantly drones on about living outside of the UK, and (ii) whether he had left the UK to avoid paying tax.

    He did not take it very well and called me, inter alia:

    “this pathetic, trolling, sub-human mong”

    “pathetic, snivelling, sub-moronic, swivel-eyed, rat-faced, monocular-brained, bat-eared, slab-sided son of a seacook needs his bumps felt”

    “the most gargantuan сunt who ever walked the face of this planet”

    Now to be fair, I have been called much worse in my time but it did seem a little over the top.

    However, this is exactly the sort of bully boy tactics that need to be stamped out.

    I was of course hugely upset and intimidated by his comments and am now a shadow of my former self.

    According to Moodys the main reason we have been downgraded is because of the anticipated slow growth of the global economy .

    Moodys also mention that people like me are not paying taxes but that is put in at the end the downgrade.

    So Clegg has now ‘fessed up to having ‘concerns’ about Rennard dating back to before the last election – so either i) he was turning a nelsonian eye to allegations of sexual harassment or ii) he was lying this morning.

    Bigger picture – this is clearly an attempt to discredit the leadership and replace Clegg with someone who is less offensive to the electorate – with Clegg to quit as an MP and go back to the EU – is Farron a shoo-in or is anyone else in the frame?

    At least Rennard isnt a knob jockey
    A rare thing in the LibDem inner ring
    He has put his arm around a few women , touched the odd leg whilst suggesting a trip to his bedroom
    Hardly makes him a rapist does it ?
    I’ve had women do worse to me and never felt the need tor a trip to da babylon, even if not interested
    A lot of women need a good slap or a staight jacket

    According to the ST her solicitors wrote to the Pollard inquiry with ‘new evidence’ that she telephoned Thompson in December 2011, informing him about the nature of those allegations.

    Thompson says that he never heard any allegations

    Boaden’s evidence does not appear in any of the transcripts, or other evidence, released by the BBC last week.

    Lord Rennard strongly denies the allegations that were first broadcast by Channel 4 News last week. We’ve seen emails that suggest the Lib Dem leader’s staff knew about the allegations four years ago. But today the Business Secretary Vince Cable said neither he nor Nick Clegg knew anything about the story until they were contacted by Channel 4 News.
    Mr Clegg can’t make it onto our programme tonight and no other senior Lib Dems accepted our invitations to appear. But Clegg won’t be able to dodge questions about the scandal when he is campaigning in the Eastleigh by-election this week. And we will be there to keep asking them.

    Some people just will not hear what is said. They can only hear what they want to hear.

    Similarly, they only see what they want to see. Look up “gorilla experiment”. The phrase about the elephant in the room has a real basis. You can not blame them, they just live in their own fantasy land. Any input that does not fit with their desires is filtered out. If you force it, they see it as an attack on their world. People that honestly deny knowing, when they have been clearly told, should be removed from their post due to mental incapacity.

    All humans must exhibit this filtering to different degrees otherwise we would not be able to have a conversation in a crowded room. Yet some can blank people even in a one to one situation, their own world, in their head, is the only real conversation.

    Most will recognise a person with memory loss, but one that can not comprehend the abnormal because it is outside their beliefs are considered “nice”. I always prefer the one that knows they have a problem.

    Inattentional blindness is well known to me. I use it when I am driving and filter out any conversation or a beautiful view which potentially might cause an accident.

    I notice others who turn inattentional blindness to their driving when they are doing “more important” things like talking on their mobile phones.

    Observation is not just a passive thing though. Most people who are successful train themselves to see things which they might not otherwise see. I will mention an easy one which anyone can do: How many people look up at the roofs in their town. There is a wealth of interest up there yet it is mostly ignored as people tend to look only in their horizontal plain.

    So to the topic, something as important as this must be noticed by the leader, otherwise it becomes an existential threat.

    Untrue. Between 65m and 70m but no one really knows. Recent projections suggest we shall overtake Germany in population by 2025 (at earliest) to 2056 (latest) at numbers around that which you mention.

    As I watched cable I could only think one thing – he is deliberately trying to get Clegg by saying he didn’t know when Cable knows that he did know. Get Cleggy on the cover up Vincey gets in.

    As we all know Politicians lack integrity – but the Lib Dems are surely the most two faced of them all.

    There are suggestions circulating that the leadership did too little to investigate a culture of “sex for favours”, in which women candidates or staff who wanted promotion in the party were pressured into sex. The allegation is that when complaints were made they were not taken sufficiently seriously by senior Lib Dems. The Rennard scandal in particular implicates some of the party’s most senior figures and goes right to the door of Nick Clegg.

    All is clarified.

    Apparently it was just a misunderstanding, and any molesting of female-persons was actually carried out by LADY Renhard, who is ready to swear an affidavit to that effect, with her fingers crossed behind her back in case the bastard wants a divorce ten years from now…

    I think I’ve twigged what’s the matter with the productivity, it’s the immigration, people have stopped giving a fuck. Whereas previously people just got along in a sort of tribal environment and got things done now nobody feels they belong and so don’t have the enthusiasm to start anything big.

    Actually that is what is the prevailing attitude to an extent still in Germany. Restricted of course to Eastern Europeans, and not to religion. I suppose your question will merit responses on a more relevant article, exploring the in depth european strategies of parties on on immigration. Until that time please stay on topic a bit more. This is about how parties should react to dodgy old dirty old men accused of indecency and likely to be convicted. The obvious answer I prefer is let the law take its course and let these women please come forward and be heard.

    For the umpteenth time, Teather is a catholic zealot who will be a starring feature at Elton’s wedding that Vince organised by telling Cameron about gay weddings being such a big vote winner. Well they are here in Twickenham. Anyhow Teather has always been a maverick, the sort of Boris of the party, winning votes and minds and writing popular analyses and stories but not leadership material. She’s going down and not in a sleazy way, sadly probably by Labour winning in her Brent seat.

    M'lud says:

    The issue is whether he knew the substance of these allegations, not merely that he had been accused of say being a womaniser or offering a young woman sex, which is the implication of what he has said and made Alexander investigate. There is then the question of why weren’t the police involved and the further question of why it is that some men in Westminster think they can be immune from the police. There’s more than 2 parties now you know and Lib Dems sit in the middle so a woman should come forward and merely move ship if she is telling the truth. No decent reason why not.

    “people intimidated by power and fame etc”

    Understatement of the century, also include brown nosing for steps up the ladder. One of the single biggest issues holding back this country over the past couple of decades (at least). All parties should be careful as they could find that there in a big glasshouse when it comes to people being scared to question/turning a blind eye etc in the past. Sorting this out properly would drive England forwards in all sorts of ways, but I rather suspect that too many people have too many skeletons in this regard. And the establishment will protect itself.

    I was once for example advised that if I pursued certain concerns the boys would stick together. On a related but genuinely separate set of events I read that a chap was imprisoned for sexual misconduct resulting in a teenagers suicide iirc. It is also amazing how our high hied yins can turn their back on you in the street when you go to the police. One even had trouble speaking to me for a while. And all because I followed the rules.

    M'lud says:

    That defence and any other to a clutch of women coming forward with specific allegations would not hold water in any court of law. I hope that such criminal allegations are made if they exist and a proper sentence imposed.

    Zeitgeist in Strawberry Hill (and 1st class passenger!) says:

    It is conceivable that all of this complaints are made by a group of women approached by Rennard and paid by Lab/Con to embellish their accusations.

    There is an election approaching with the Lib Dems notionally ahead before the vote-winning period began. It’s not fair to disgrace the whole party because of one dirty old man.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
