LibDems Won’t Discipline Rennard

Cathy Newman reports that the LibDems are to take no disciplinary action against Lord Rennard. Worth remembering what Clegg had to say following the Rennard Report last summer:

“It makes sobering reading. It shows that stretching over a 20-year period a series of mistakes were made which left a number of women feeling seriously let down and for that there is absolutely no excuse whatsoever.

The report also shows that the individuals who dealt with their complaints had the right motives, but there weren’t the right processes in place to support the women who’d come forward. And as leader of the Liberal Democrats I take responsibility for that.”

And yet he is doing absolutely nothing about it…

All our Rennard stories can be found hereThe old perv still hasn’t sued Guido for calling him a corrupt sex pest.

UPDATE:

Party president Tim Farron has called on Rennard to apologise. If you’re a LibDem you can harass women again and again and it’s fine so long as you say sorry.

          Lord Wiki of Peedia says:

          In 2002 a tape-recording surfaced of Harold Wilson discussing the scandal and saying: “Look, I saw Jack Straw, he’s very worried if he were mentioned in this context, he thinks he’ll be finished.” This resulted in an inquiry by the BBC programme Newsnight into Jack Straw’s involvement in the Scott affair. According to the diary of Barbara Castle, Secretary of State for Social Security, Wilson had asked her to examine Norman Scott’s security file to see if it contained any indications that he was working as part of a conspiracy against Thorpe. Straw – at that time working as a political advisor for Castle – informed her that when he went to examine Scott’s file, it was missing.

          The journalist Barrie Penrose has alleged that Straw subsequently leaked information from the file to the media. Straw remained silent on that matter, but denied the accusation by Joe Haines that Wilson asked him to read the files for information that could be used to smear Thorpe. At the time, the general view, promoted in particular by Private Eye, was that Wilson was using his position and influence to help and protect Thorpe and not to smear him.

          In a BBC2 documentary on 16 March 2006, Penrose revealed that he pursued or stumbled on the murder allegations in the course of following leads from Harold Wilson, who wanted to prompt an investigation into the role of security services in destabilising his government. The documentary suggested that Wilson’s original perception and intention were to help rather than undermine Thorpe, and repeated an unsupported claim that he was also an intended victim of a right-wing plot by a rogue element in MI5

    There could be an argument made that the Lib Dem women actually welcome the attention and go with it because it is within their liberal beliefs. The few bad apples that complained were perhaps looking for personal gain and aren’t really liberal, so should shut up and leave the party.

    Then there is the argument that the above is all bollocks and the guy is just a filthy pervert who in any other walk of life would be doing hard time on a sex offenders wing by now.

    Doesn’t look very good as at best it would appear that Clegg is trying to shore up and gain support among perhaps the most morally corrupt in the country. But they would be the purest liberals.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
