Nick Clegg Statement In Full

“The allegations made on Channel 4 concerning Lord Rennard last Thursday were extremely serious and distressing to the women involved. It is critical they are investigated thoroughly and dealt with properly and they will be.

But I would like to make one thing crystal clear. I did not know about these allegations until Channel 4 informed the party of them shortly before they were broadcast. I have today spoken to one of the women in the broadcast who I respect and admire and who confirmed that she had never raised the issue with me.

I am angry and outraged at the suggestion that I would not have acted if these allegations had been put to me. Indeed, when indirect and non-specific concerns about Chris Rennard’s conduct reached my office in 2008, we acted to deal with them.

My Chief of Staff at the time, Danny Alexander, put these concerns to Chris Rennard and warned him that any such behaviour was wholly unacceptable. Chris Rennard categorically denied that he had behaved inappropriately and he continues to do so. He subsequently resigned as Chief Executive on health grounds.

As my office only received concerns indirectly and anonymously, as those involved understandably wanted to maintain their privacy, there was a limit to how we could take this matter forward following Chris Rennard’s resignation. It is incorrect to state that there was any other separate inquiry by my office or anybody in it.

I recognise from the Channel 4 broadcast that there are legitimate concerns that issues raised with the party were not handled as well as they should have been. In particular the suggestion that a complaint was made but was not dealt with as a formal complaint. I am therefore determined that we carry out a thorough investigation into our procedures and how we applied them at the time to ensure we have a full and clear picture of what happened and the lessons that we need to learn. This review will be independently chaired.

A separate investigation into the specific allegations about Lord Rennard will take place under our disciplinary procedure. It is essential that this is carried out with due process and for that reason I cannot provide a running commentary on it. But I am absolutely determined that both these investigations will be carried out thoroughly and comprehensively. These investigations may well reveal flawed procedures, and clearly the women concerned feel they were not properly listened to. But I totally reject the insidious suggestion that my office or I are responsible in any way for a deliberate cover up.

The full truth of what happened and what failed to happen and who said what to whom will be revealed by these investigations.

But in the meantime, I will not stand by and allow my party to be subject to a show trial of innuendo, half-truths and slurs. The important thing is that we respect the women who have come forward and do everything to get to the truth. That is what will now happen.”

If anything this widens the cover-up…

    Broker says:

    No: Definitely do not need Balls in control.

    What will happen is this:

    Bo.E will start buying Gold on open market, it needs to.

    Why ?

    The Gilts (UK Bonds) are not underpinned by anything. They need to be underpinned by something, and faith in sterling is almost as strong as faith in the likes of Clegg and Osborne.

    The massive significance of the sterling drop, and it did drop off a cliff last week and is still falling right now, is that the market has not priced in any of this. Things are going to get hot now.

    Suggestion a few threads back about starting a war to kill the more serious creditors, or perhaps withdrawing from the EU to stimulate a collapse (same thing) is perhaps the best medium term option.

    Government will likely try to tax its way out of this hole which will fail spectacularly.

    But later this year: Civil disturbances, once the weather warms up, and finally some meaningful cuts in public expenditure are priced in.

    There will need to be a change of political leadership in Treasury though as Osborne is now officially an economic mong.

    Will the accused face a trial? Will you have the patience to wait for a trial? Or do you instead demand instant trial by media and character assassination?

    Your lack of patience in the police and victims doing their jobs and coming forward is symptomatic of the unprofessional BBC News style dumbed-down, simplistic instant results broadcasting wholly neglecting revelations as to whether the police are investigating and leaving the story at that. Which is what should happen. Or are you now a conspiracy theorist who believes that trial by media and allegations is the best way to do these things? And that all complainants in every single case tell the truth?

    Rip van Wrinkle says:


    AEP asserts that the Fed may also need to be pushing up the price of gold by mid-2014.

  113. 113
    Broker says:

    The gold market is special as it has a small number of participants, and does not have a lot of liquidity. Brown recall forced the price down significantly when he repeatedly stated he was selling some gold.

    So, the tincy wincy Island as you put it shoved the global price down just with announcing intention to sell.

    Now. The main players in the market are central banks and some rather large funds.

    They will know following this news from Moodys exactly what the Bo.E will need to do next. So, expect the price to be bid up. The price will go up anyway as the Bo.E starts actually purchasing.

    The price of gold is one of the more heavily manipulated. That was evidenced by its friendly smack down a couple of weeks back when there was a massive outflow from SPDR Gold Trust (a gold backed ETF) mainly due to Soros.

    There is talk of the cross of death, where the long term average price has crosses the short term average price, which traditionally for commodities signals that price will continue down. That may happen for a little while, but if the Bo.E has to enter the market to start underpinning Gilts then that trend will be reverse fairly quickly.

    Question is, can be Bo.E purchase in such a way as to keep the short term average where it is ? Likely not as sterling is going to devalue against gold faster than it is against USD.

    This by the way has not factored in what is happening in the futures market (lot of physical being taken out this month from Feb C0MEX…) / German (and other) repatriations.

    The upward pressure on gold price has been increased somewhat by this downgrade.

    i) Bond Vigilante’s are disarmed. The QE has killed them off.

    ii) US doesn’t really have the same problem as everyone else with their debt obligations. As reserve currency they can raise debt ceiling and just print more money. Their only limit on this is how far Ch!na will tolerate. Watch the As!an pivot carefully.

    iii) US does not mind $ tending towards 0 as it needs this in order to recapture some of its lost export markets from Ch!na. Part of their strategy is to become a net energy exporter: See shale gas / oil developments and Keystone pipeline for further details.

    iv) Note: The ‘escape velocity’ terminology is totally meaningless.

    v) The article completely misses the recent Fed Gold audits, and some pertinent corollaries of that.

    The BAE deal which Heyw0od is coercing Cameron to sign will help bring down US government expenditure by introducing some competition for the US Defense contractors.

    Main cost US government cannot drop in real (power) terms is defense budget. That they will reduce in nominal terms through competition and investment in automated weapons / drone technologies etc.

    Biggest risks for US are Europe disintegrating, Ch!na losing patience as creditor and resorting to direct confrontation.

    It seems like the lib dumbs as they have always been are the assholes of politics.
    Cleggover now tries to hand over responsibiliy to Alexander of forestry fame,what an abdication of blame is this.
    Foxy is in the frame as to what he was doing and Cleggover did’td know,well pull the other one.
    All of this says to me that you cant trust a politician of any party to tell it like it is.
    Way back Cromwell marched the politicians out of parliament calling them whoremasterers pimps and prostitues,this now applies to this day.
    When are we going to see another figure such as this who will rid us of the corruption that we see today.
    This country is now in the throes of utter devastation as to what we held dear,and that is an absolute disgrace as to what this country was all about.

    Is Clegg actually stating that Danny Alexander, his chief of staff, did not report back to him on his dealings with Rennard, and give him a blow by blow account?
    If this is so, why did Clegg not question Alexander on this, and get confirmation that appropriate actions were taken?
    As I have been saying for the last 10 years you can give these Westminster people expensive educations, but their universities seem totally incapable of transferring wisdom and of leadership skills.

    He is trying to state that these women did not directly approach him personally.
    On the other hand he keeps talking about procedures.
    Like all Lib Dems he wants his cake and eat it.

    £ was down 7% BEFORE the Moody’s downgrade so most of this is already factored in. I expect the other two rating agencies to join Moody’s. There is a probability that the results of the Italian elections will in a very short time negate this and lower the euro. As for the $ Obama is relying on shale gas not his policies.

    The guy from Sky News really hates Clegg. Wonder why? So biased he’s an embarrassement to newsreaders, no matter what you think of Clegg.

    So just how many people have DIRECT access to the biggest cheese in the place? I know I never did in all my working career even though I managed to climb a good way up the greasy pole. The echelons of flunkies in the way always made certain that certain things only got to get so high – and then got “disappeared”. Squeaky bum time!

    Remember the last time there was a Liberal leadership election it was a straight choice between Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne .

    Nick Clegg – is he trying to prove that he is an even bigger twat than his “Last of the Summer Wine” namesake?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
