“Rennard’s Red Hot Babes”

rennard-logoA LibDem activist alleges that nine women have made claims against Lord Rennard, dating back to 2001. She says she personally told Jo Swinson, Norman Lamb and Ros Scott about the time Rennard propositioned her, and that Clegg “didn’t know how to deal with it and then didn’t deal with it well”.

“At one point someone referred to us as ‘Rennard’s red hot babes'”. On the emails between the Telegraph and Jonny Oates: “I am unsure as to how Nick never heard of that”. She’s not the only one…

    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

      and that’s why we propose punishing people for saving in order to give free money to people who’ve borrowed fecklessly..

      Farmland + shotgun shells should be your ONLY investment class.

      I’d like to remind you George to remove the taxpayer provided subsidy for mp’s dining & wining in their place of work;they make enough extra money via their fiddling the expenses & allowances.

    Time to get out the crosshairs.

    Clegg is caught in the cover-up, his spin and denials are getting out of control. He’s on the run!

    Otherwise I’m sure I’d have been propositioned.

    EU Watch says:

    Looks like there could be military coup / civil war imminent in Greece. (For real, not just stating the obvious)

    The Greek government have contracted Academ! (the rebranded Blackwater, a private merc firm, cross check !raq…) in to protect key government installations including the Parliament.

    Leon!das Chysanthopoul!s is the Greek diplomat who has revealed this.


    ‘The Greek government recently made an agreement with the successor company of Blackwater to hire mercenaries for the protection of Parliament. Parliament, however, in democracies needs no protection.’

    This has been confirmed on Greek Military news site defencenet gr


    (site in Greek, but translates ok in chrome)

        EU Watch says:

        On a deeper analytic level it further demonstrates that the EU has totally failed in Greece.

        The military are being supported at the same level directly by Brussels whilst the country has burned. This is why there has not been a coup already.

        One suspects that this is either going to end soon, or the generals are beginning to shift away from the EU policies themselves.

        Check the history of Greece: The military is the real power which determines who remains in government there. It is a complete perversion of democracy on all levels bringing in a foreign private mercenary firm to protect the Parliament.

        The !taly result is likely to speed things up.

        It would really stir the pot if it came out that similar moves were being made by the Span!sh and Portugu3se governments. ;-)

        Bet it’s not reported on the BBC.
        Wouldn’t want to remind the masses that the EU is an unmitigated disaster.

    Clegg is a dead man walking says:

    Pleeeeeeease, I hope this sees Nick Clegg’s downfall. We haven’t had a big political resignation in a while. Popcorn time.

    Clegg is a dead man walking says:

    It doesn’t take Poirot to work out what happened. Rennard’s victims all came forward to the likes of Swinson et al. They initially said they would deal with it. It was taken to Clegg, Farron and others and they basically said no dice, Rennard’s a fixer, a fundraiser, this can’t go public. As more victims piled up, they decided to quietly move him off the stage “on health grounds”.

    And now it’s come back to haunt them.

    Clegg, Farron and Swinson should all be forced to resign and also resign their seats.

    Guido saying 9 women, BBC are saying 10 women involved.

    I suppose If Sarah Teather is one of them that could account for the confusion.

    Engineer says:

    What’s up with these women? What happened to the well-known phrase, “Piss off, creep”, or even, “Well, thank you for the offer, but no thanks. I’ll leave now, if you don’t mind – or even if you do.”

    As far as I can tell, non of the allegations are of anything more serious than unwanted propositions or inappropriate groping. Both unacceptable, but hardly serious sexual assault or rape.

    Is there more to this than we’ve heard so far?

    (PS – Not standing up for Rennard, who can go hang for all I care. Just don’t understand why the women involved are behaving as if they’ve been gang-raped.)

      + 1. All this `he put his hand on my knee’ & `he invited me back to his room for coffee’ doesn’t amount to much more than amateur hour chatting up. And certainly not propositioning or full-on hitting on someone. In my day you’d have to be caught on the job at work during office hours to even get a warning. But this the party of of Thorpe’, Oaten and Hughes so showing interest in the opposite `kind’ is to be discouraged.

      Wasn’t there something dodgy a few years ago about IDS’s qualifications with links to Italy?

        Yes, it was “inaccurate and misleading”

          Blowing Whistles says:

          Your response therefore leaves open the issue that there were true bits to it all.

          Ergo: You didn’t say totally inaccurate, totally refuted and completly misleading. Ambiguous is what your reply was.

    Given the pregnant silence from senior libdem ladies on this issue will they now be known as the silent service?

    Not a feminst says:

    Is that it. An enitire interview about being asked by some bloke to have a drink in his hotel room????

    And the other allegations about two women being locked in his flat an offered a shag, which was refused and no further allegations of being held against their will made?

    IS THAT IT??


    And this is headline news?


    And these damaged women thought they could cope with the cut and thrust of being MPs??
