Rennard Statement in Full

Lord Rennard has come out fighting, albeit via a ‘friend':

rennard-logo

Lord Rennard refutes these allegations. He will co-operate with any properly constituted inquiry.

He has been notified of an internal investigatory panel within the Party. The matter must now be regarded as sub judice pending its proceedings and no further statement will be issued in the interim.

He expects others to respect the sub judice principle, and he notes that under the party rules concerned it is for any case made against him to be proved by evidence to the requisite standard. He denies impropriety.

He would reiterate that in 27 years of working for the Liberal Democrats he received no complaint or allegation about his behaviour.

Nor is he aware of any personal complaints being made in the three and a half years since he stood down as chief executive until last week.

 So he’s denying Danny had a word?

    If it is sub judice can we still find him guilty because he is clinically obese, and obviously looks a wrong un?

    These buffoons really are the limit. How can anything be sub-judice when by definition it can only be sub-judice when it is a matter which is pending in a court of law.

    Moodys downgrade, negative rate idea, and this.

    Pound is going to go down anyway. Bo.E needs to be buying gold, which incidentally is back above $1600 / oz now.

    The one to keep an eye on is Gilts. The current talking down the pound one suspects is to keep the current bond prices in line. Ditto with the negative rates.

    The bond market is likely to disintegrate after April, and that will trigger inflation. The UK cannot tax its way out the hole.

    Thousands of BBC journalists and technical staff are to be balloted for strike action over increased workloads, stress, and job losses.

    Broadcasting union Bectu and the National Union of Journalists will ballot members in the coming weeks.

    Earlier this month, many BBC journalists completed a 24-hour strike in a dispute over redundancies.

    The corporation is cutting about 2,000 jobs over five years as part of its Delivering Quality First programme.

    Most redundancies are expected to come as a result of natural wastage and a freeze on recruitment, but the NUJ said 30 compulsory redundancies were being disputed.

    NUJ members went on strike on 18 February after failing to reach an agreement with management over the redeployment of those 30 staff members.

    “Sub judice” is being used here as a convenient figleaf for the truth of the matter, which is that all participants are, or at any rate should be, taking legal advice. Any half-fast brief can tell you, don’t sink any potential case by making statements which will come back to haunt you. And once the lawyers are consulted, and there’s a chance this could reach an actual court of law and not just some twopenny-ha’penny internal tribunal, it all turns into a paraphrase of a famous film Mexican bandit, I ain’t got to give you no stinkin’ answers.

    Maybe Rennard was just after someone to take his speeding points and it was a misunderstanding.

    Lord Toffingham says:

    Please remember these are the people who piloted the Human Rights Act through Parliament; they are pretty shaky on legal principles, being guided only by the view that they and their supporters must have rights that trump those of lesser beings, such as net taxpayers.

    “no further statement will be issued in the interim ”

    The claims made below this sentence by his Lordship look suspiciously like statements to me.

    As no charges have been preferred not court proceedings pending as yet then the matter is NOT sub Judice. What a load of bollox.

    So he is saying that Nick Clegg and Danny Alexander are liars.
    Interesting – I am sure that one day soon they will combine to get their lies in order.

    Pedant says:

    “The matter must now be regarded as sub judice”

    Why? Has he been arrested or charged?

    “in 27 years of working for the Liberal Democrats he received no complaint or allegation about his behaviour”

    But lots of others seemingly did

    ‘He expects others to respect the sub judice principle’

    Yes, it should be respected, if it ever comes to Court.

    Until then, he can stick such a cynical, lame attempt to silence his opponents up his arse.

    These people think that whatever they do IS the law: in Waltham Forest the dodgy Labour Whip Afzal Akram was found by a council disciplinary inquiry to have tried to influence the outcome of planning decisions by leaning on committee members. They remitted the task of sentencing him to….the Labour Party.

    Strange that this surfaces AGAIN just a week before a by election.

    Methinks instigated by a political party with an axe to grind.

    Perhaps the Millbonkers spend all /destroy all/deny/its a load of balls to me anyway band wagon.
    Or
    Maybe payback time from the tories for the limp dens destroying the prospect of another 20 seats in the boundaries question.
    I know where my money is on.

    Despite the increasingly Porcine images of Rennard being dug out of archives, it is quite clear that it is Clegg who is covered in shit. Again.

    He, and all the Limp Dem “leadership” for that matter, are self interested third raters not fit to run a whelk stall

    Cutting 2000 jobs? Great – that should mean a reduction in the tellytax as there will be no salaries, no NI contributions, no expenses claims, no use of electricity and heating in empty offices etc etc to pay for.

    It is common practice that any politician awaiting legal action, does not comment on anything whatsoever that is sub judice. I have not commented on anything for years for that very reason. Boaz.

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.”
