LibDem Lord Plays Down “Mild Sexual Advances”

As Guido revealed in his Sun column yesterday, one fellow yellow peer has jumped to the defence of randy Rennard. Weirdy-beardy Lord Greaves has been fighting his corner on an internal party message board, suggesting the sex pest allegations were merely “mild sexual advances”.

“Are the allegations true? We will have to wait and see. Meanwhile I suggest people just calm down a bit. Is the alleged behaviour criminal? We don’t know the details of anything that may have happened. But it is hardly an offence for one adult person to make fairly mild sexual advances to another. What matters if whether they are pursued if they are rebuffed…In passing I would note and guess that if the allegations as made are a matter for resignation, perhaps around a half of the male members of the Lords over the age of 50 would probably not be seen again”

Then on a thread titled “Just a devious Beeb/Labour  plot to steal Eastleigh thunder”, Lord Greaves continues:

“Interesting to consider what is “sexual harassment”. Does one proposition constitute sexual harassment? If that is not normally the case (which seems common sense) might it do so in the particular context of the relationship between two people? And once there has been a refusal by the other person, how many more propositions constitute sexual harassment? We only know the identity of two of the complainants, as I understand it. In at least one case, if the event that is alleged too place, I’m surprised the response was not a slap in the face. But why the complaints have been made now is a mystery.”

Guido wonders what the party’s paltry female contingent would make of Greaves’ hands on attitude to dealing with the Rennard crisis. With friends like that…

    If they’re ‘mild sexual advances’ why was it necessary for Beaker to have a word in Rennard’s ear and why was it covered up?

    To be honest. For most of the Adult population what he writes makes perfect sense and is reasonable.

    It is only in the warped minds of the Westminster village and the press that feeds off them that his words could be taken out of context.

    The real scandal here is Nick Clegg suddenly remembering that he did know all along and a person who he sacked for sexual indiscretions in the workplace is retired to the HoL as a thank you for services rendered.

    What exactly should have been done?

    Was there any police complaint? Without a complaint what could be done? However much a dislike Clegg, I see no ability in his position to be judge or jury in a spat between adults in a bar. These are supposedly political people, they are not in anyway vulnerable.

    To even equate this on any level to the cases involving the vulnerable is a further crime against those children.

    We now all know that whistle-blowers are continuously threatened and silenced, but to use the present climate for political gain for actions between adults is disgusting behaviour. This time is for the children that were ignored. The rest will be dealt with when we feel the vulnerable are safe. Those that kill for bonuses are the next on the list, way before any “crime” committed between equal adults.

    There is a time and a place for complaints like these. These women are showing severe lack of control and any empathy for the vulnerable.

    Sir William Wade says:

    In my circle, sticking your hand down the back of a lady’s dress isn’t the usual mode of initiating intimate personal contact. The first move on the gentleman’s part should, I suggest, be one that can be declined without embarrassment to either party. Membership of the Liberal Democrats may however tend to coarsen a man’s manners.

    If the taxi drivers are like the ones around here, the risks are far greater to children than walking. If they want to impose restrictions outside their site then they should think clearly about the implications.

    An unfortunate phrasing. Indeed he must avoid being firm on this issue, and under no circumstance call for a deep penetrating investigation in order to firmly thrust and reveal all.

    Please read my post properly I didnt say they were the only sources I said two main sources are…. That is a correct statement as far as institutions go they are amongst the worst for having a sub culture of noncing . Of course it can also be argued that some of he abuse occuring in families have a root in some of the cases in abusers having been abused themselves by Priests and the like. Im sure many roads lead to Rome.

    FordingtonField, My brother’s favourite chat-up line was “hello love, do fancy going halves on a bastard?” I never understood it, but it worked.

    As for what the Lib Dems are saying, well there is some truth to it. So far as I can figure it out, any act is only considered sexual harassment IF the woman finds the man repulsive. If she finds him to be attractive, then no offence has taken place.

    This spoof video explains it brilliantly:

    Seems to have moved on to Danny Boy who is said to have spoken to Rennard and Rennard who claims no allegations were ever made. One of them is telling porkies!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
