Rennard Statement Word Cloud

Click to enlarge.

“I will not offer an apology to the four women complainants.”

The numbers don’t lie: Rennard doesn’t care about his victims, only about his party. Sorry seems to be the hardest word…

          I couldn’t agree more… Im not a Lib Dem supporter but what they are doing to Rennard is a disgrace to the phrase “innocent until proven guilty!”

          What happened to actually taking someone to trail to determine the veracity of the allegations instead of constant prevarication and cover ups.

    Surely the fact that he looks exactly – and I mean, exactly – like Herr Lipp from the League of Gentlemen should get him some sympathy?

    I agree with Prime Minister David Cameron, jumping on a bandwagon for self promotion regardless of issue, is the right thing to do

    I can’t stand the Limp dims but this is a bit of a lesbian feminist witch hunt (and there are plenty of witches around)

    So Rennard tries it on with some rather ugly women (he must have been very drunk). The Police don’t take any action (if they did then what goes on in most pubs and night clubs every night would be illegal) and if you notice it’s the same media hags(Kathy Newman, Rat face Wark, Maitlis) who keep stirring it up.

    So if I’m not prosecuted for an alleged crime and an internal investigation also finds no case to answer, why am I require dot say sorry?

    Rennard seems to be getting stitched up by the press just as Andrew Mitchell was, this time it’s a bunch of bitter men hating dykes at it.

      But it aint a random casual acquiantance in a pub is it?

      This is abuse of power to try it on with women knowing full well that they’ll be pursuing their own careers and would be very likely to object or complain.

        The point is NOTHING was proven so end of story. funny that the media are concerned over this story yet the BBC is a home to perverts and child molesters and nothing is said.

      Women are being told that all slap and tickle is nasty and men should be reported and if you like a bit of S & T you shouldn’t cos that not being a real woman. This leaves real women then as no more than sterile bitches! The amazing thing is that sex will always rear its head whether you think it ugly or not and no matter how you repress it. In the news today, Joan Bakewell says that women are being demonised and that this sort of behaviour common in the 60′s and 70′s is no longer acceptable. On the same page to the right is a column of sexist stories including one about a man remotely controlling a vibrator in his girls panties!! Didn’t have those in the sixties did we.

    Leaving aside the fat bloke and all of the lasses that he may or may not have tried it on with, the real story here is the joke status of the LibDem party.

    With only 50-odd (odd, geddit?) MPs in the lower house, the party is overwhelmed by all of the LibDumb old farts who have been kicked upstairs over the years. The two major parties have this proportion of MPs v. proportion of peers problem as well, but it’s not as acute. Just as well, otherwise Conservative peers would insist Dave brings back the birch, national service and witch burning.

      Nothing wrong with witch burning. Can we please start with the triumvirate of H . Harman, P.Tonybee and S. Bercow ?

    Lore Rennard is obviously innocent because an independent body set up by the Liberals says so.

    What more is there to get heated about ?

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Independent … of whom?

      If the government or opposition – call in an independent body – to investigate any form of wrongdoing in their day to day business – the only thing the public can be sure of is ‘A Cover Up’.

      e.g. Labour / Unite / Scotland – allowed to cover up their own dirt.
      Conservatives – T Yeo – allowed to cover up their own dirt.
      Lib Dems – david Laws – allowed to cover up their own dirt.

      I could go on with many other examples … but the list would be too long.

    I have inside information on this. Supposedly the guy was sleeping with women and those women then got on in the party. No criminal offence committed – they went tot he CPS. Who’s to say they weren’t using him. Nobody every mentions the specifics do they – if it was then there would be questions marks over every woman who got on in the party – that’s why. Yes he was a naughty boy but so were the girls – they had years to complain – but they didnt because it was leg up in the party.

      I just remembered. According to the CPS the worst allegation was a woman who said he had put his hands up her skirt – but forgot to mention it was at a photoshoot and slag / sorry victim / was smiling to the camera. True.

      Javelin says:

      Yes the worst the CPS found was he put his hand up a woman’s skirt. But it was on a photo shoot and the slag / sorry victim / smiled to the camera. So the CPS told Nick to Clegg off

        Javelin says:

        Guido – can we get hold of the photo?

        As I reckon I’m first to reveal this I claim the right to name it.

    FairTrialsForAll says:

    If the victims are so sure of their victim status, they can hire lawyers and sue for whatever crime they think he’s committed.
    Police and CPS not interested, LibDem-appointed lawyer says no provable case to answer.
    Just going ‘boo-hoo’ does not a victim make.

    Not much hope for Lord grope?

    Trouble is says:

    That ACAS harassment guidance says it’s not what the groper intended but how the gropee felt offended. In an employment situation his ball sack would be on the end of a rusty knife. That’s what the clowns in parliament have sicked onto us. One rule for them….

    Mike Hodges says:

    Does anyone still remember the heady days of “I agree with Nick”? This guy seems to be blessed, or is it cursed, with a party determined to self destruct in the full glare of the media. This year’s EU election results could be the final nail in Nick’s coffin….

    Nemesis says:

    Does anybody know what Rennard has actually done to these ‘credible’ women. Was it wandering hands, little taps on the bottom, hand on knee or sleight of hands near breasts etc. It must have been something sexual for them to complain. Poor women surely the sight of that obese, egg-head alone would make a female recoil. He appears as the adult equivalent of a gross cherub.

    Orangewash says:

    The solution to this problem is obvious, if Lord Rennard does not apologise he should represent the Lib Dems in the House of Lords dressed as Brother Lee Love from the Kenny Everett Show.

    Socialism = Starvation says:

    The Lib Dems have done a job of sitting behind a criminal burden of proof that we are told their party rules require for sanction alleged harassers.

    We are not told what they would have concluded had they applied a civil burden of proof, the same that an Employment Tribunal or County Court hearing into alleged harassment would have applied.

    If any if the alleged victims brought civil claims, and time limits might be against them, then a whole new picture might emerge.

    Rennard is right to say that an apology for something that the Party has not found proven against him is a nonsense, as he would effectively concede the civil case were he to do so, unless he used Parliamentary Privilege.

    Clegg is in the absurd position of asking someone to apologise for something arising from alleged acts of harassment that an enquiry has found not to be made out. The Data Protection Act argument for keeping the report confidential is a nonsense, it could easily be redacted.

    Can’t wait for the next instalment of this farce.

    Surely the words ‘Liberal Democrat’ and the adjective ‘credible’ do not sit together unless one is being sarcastic or naïve?

    Why are these women or anybody else so arrogant to assume that they have a right to have a ‘ CAREER ‘ in politics ,don’t the voters get a say?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
