The Door Locker Revealed
Telegraph Put Specific Allegations To Clegg’s Oates in April 2010

Yesterday Clegg told us: “my office only received concerns indirectly and anonymously”. We now know they were detailed, specific allegations. The Telegraph have just upped the Rennard ante, revealing the specific allegations they put to the LibDem election head of comms Jonny Oates back in April 2010. Oates is now Clegg’s Chief of Staff. The lawyers eventually sat on the story after the strength of the denials, but the four out of the five allegations now emerge:

To which Oates responded:

oates

The obvious question arises: without putting the specific allegations to Clegg, how could Oates have issued this denial to the Telegraph? Yesterday Clegg insisted only “indirect and non-specific concerns” had been raised with his office, back in 2008. This correspondence proves detailed allegations were presented to a senior aide, and judging by the response evidently him, in 2010. That is not what Clegg told us yesterday…

    I thoroughly approve of this Lord Rennard

    In this day and age, where buggery, thuggery and skulduggery have become the norm

    I find it refreshing and healthy that a senior politician continues the age-old male tradition of “groping” (for lacking of a more elegant word”)

    As Conficius said, 2,500 odd years ago, (sorry for the poor translation) go forth and grope and the world will be yours…

    With 1.5 billion Chinese now, he seems to have been proved right…

    Just make things crystal clear we thought we should point out that our message is not that you should not let up in dealing with your debts. It is that you have not been dealing with your debt level at all and that, as a result, your entire economy has got dodgier.

    Please do something about it before we have to put you in the bargain basement with Greece.

    Yours faithfully

    So we have the Tories setting one group in society against another (decent hard working people v those without jobs presumably not being decent, changed to, strivers v skivers etc), while seemingly not really understanding how the profit motive actually works (see Panorama and the economists warnings to them about this beforehand). Politicising the police and restricting press freedoms too far, all of which could easily generate social unrest and lead to very dark days ahead as the lessons of history seem to have been forgotten.

    The Lib Dems proving themselves to be just as bad as the rest of them yet again.

    Labour not having any policies beyond I think saying that they will continue the Tory cuts.

    Heaven help us. With more voter apathy the more extremist and minority parties are going to have a field day come election time.

  115. 115

    Thats what happens when you change too much at once, people choose to tighten their belts – while others are forced to. Lower consumer spending = less protits for shops = less tax collected = less jobs in the suply chains and services.

    Also no cuts tell that to those who are told that they are fit for work when days away from death, or those who can press a button once, but not twice, or those who now have to find more council tax from somewhere, or all those policemen and nurses who lost their jobs, or the soldiers, and so on and so forth.

    Also just becuse money that would otherwise have been paid to the vulnerable in society in benefits is now being paid to private companies to enable them to pay big dividends or huge wages to their directors etc, does not mean that there are no cuts. It only means that our government have arguably squandered public money.

    What was it the metro said a few days back government spends 5bn or something to get 20 people back into long term work. Cant help but wonder if PPE degrees should really be PPE and accounting degrees.

    There are big cuts that are hurting the vulnerable. The total spend may be up but that is because more people are out of work, the governments economic policies have failed and money has been diverted away from the vulnerable to the private sector. It is not, in my mind, a sign of competence nor the fault of labour. Labour did get us in this mess but the current government are making it far worse than it needs to be.

    But what the flipping heck do I know. I only have an economics degree, professional accounting qualifications, been unemployed, self employed, in the global professions,and a carer.

    Simon Highes wiki

    “Referring to his change from previous denials about his sexuality and recent Liberal Democrat difficulties he said, “I hope that any colleague in any party at any time who might not have been entirely honest for good reason or who may have made a mistake is accepted back at the right time.” and also “I gave a reply that wasn’t untrue but was clearly misleading. I apologise.” He confirmed to PinkNews that he is bisexual”

    So he does not count…

    A proven repeated lioar already…

    This was all to do with the Pindown practice which was being run.

    No need to remind that Harman was advocate for P.I.E.

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.”
