Swinson Ducks the Question

Sarah Teather isn’t the only LibDem woman to have gone missing during the Rennard scandal. Guido noted last month and Cathy Newman asks this morning why women’s minister Jo Swinson, who investigated the initial claims, has stayed silent. How many women did she speak to? What did she do with the complaints? As if by perfect timing Swinson popped up on the Today programme this morning. Here’s a new one: when asked about randy Rennard she refused to answer “out of respect” for the accusers. The same ones that claim she told them they had to put up with it if they wanted to get on…

    Aha, busted! She doesn’t want to ask questions about sleazy colleagues. It shows how the Lib Dems are on the run, ducking for cover rather than standing up to support colleagues in trouble.

    Above all we need to expose the Clegg Cover Up, he’s changed his story more often than he’s changed his underpants.

    Maybe all these wimmin limp dem MPs are hiding because we all now know the truth. The shameless bints have all had to shag Rennard themselves to get where they are! That’s the question they’re scared of being asked – “So Sarah Teather, Jo Swinson, et al – just how did you manage to pass the selection process?”

    Blame it on the boogie says:

    Climate change is the most used wishy washy excuse by politicians and planners to dodge an answer or accept fault.

    Modern day flooding in the main is caused by poorly planned urban development, agriculture and someone elses “flood defences” but you can bet your bottom dollar that everyone from the top politician down to the3 council who neglects to unblock the drains will blame a flood, any flood on “climate change”, which used to be global warming, which used to be British weather, which is natural variation of the seasons and the weather.

    I’d hate to be sued, by a Liberal Democrat no less, so I’ll suggest a *possible* skenario… minor minister agrees to soft pedal on complaints in return for assurances on future concessions that will *more* than make up for the temporary letting down of victims. If one of those concessions, perhaps the only one, is a better post for that minister, well, it will allow her to do so much more for women and stuff, so what’s the problem? Doing a deal worked for Clare Short…

    Respect means a proper investigation rather than trying to bury the story and changing your account of events all the time.

    The 10K came from people masquerading behind the name ” bareMInerals” from Soho who seem to like selling expensive cosmetics you do not find in Poundland and use an advertising slogan of “Hello Georgeous” .

    Respect is accusing some one through the correct channels, and not the media. Expressing concern over an issue within an organization, is not an accusation it is an attempt to have a person side-lined by the leaders. Any organization can choose to side-line anyone, just like they can choose to promote anyone.

    Only certain institutions can punish.

    I for one do not want alternate courts in this country. But the use of the media as a kangaroo court is just fuelling demands for the increase in the number of groups allowed to punish.

    The alternate is to admit our justice system is broken, and is worthless to even attempt to use. (That however is a valid, and essential, use of the media)

    Her and that Mel Gizzybonk or whatever are strange cases, they have all the on-screen ease, talent and charisma of a hamster having a furious scorpion inserted into its anus.

    The paragraph above is funnier and more shrewd than the entire Perkins opus combined. In August 2012 she appeared on Tatler’s list of ‘coolest lesbians’. I rest my case.

    They seem to be on TV for the sole reason that they have been on it before. The shite that the BBC is pumping out as prime time comedy right now is just mystifying; if they cleared the decks for new talent from all comers (rather than just achingly trendy lefties) we might have some decent TV made again.

    It’s a shame, the US is making the best TV ever right now such as Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Louie (CK), Mad Men etc.

    We can only do period dramas well. It’s tiresome.

    PS – I am a proud non-license fee payer.

    I watch the US stuff from internet downloads, as it is usually shown on satellite channels at stupid times of day in order that the main channels can be stuffed with ‘will-this-do?’ shite like that produced by Sue Perkins.

    Joseph Kennedy, grandson and namesake of the Ambassador says:

    Mine, too. I shall never forget his generosity in providing low-cost heating fuel for the people of Massachusetts, distributed through my company, of course. And I had the chance to repay this fine benefactor of humanity, through the efforts of my brother Bob Jr the environmental activist (he of the wife dr!ven to suicide), by getting my ex-brother-in-law Governor Andrew Cuomo (he of the uncanny Moe the Bartender resemblance) to outlaw fracking in New York State, even though it would bring thousands upon thousands of jobs to an economically-depressed region and lower fuel costs in the US.

    With due respect to all ladies concerned. If you want to get on in Liberal Politics, then you’ll have to put up with the odd groper groping. Call that political way forward, I call it a liberty.

    Because Mr Brown is milking her plight as part of his UN Global de-education strategy. Have a look at the material he is pushing there and all will become clear.

    It’s not clear if Malala is being paid for this, or herself is truly interested / supportive.
