Monday Morning LibDem Sex Scandal Round Up

The eternally classy Lord Rennard has threatened to go nuclear and leak “where the bodies are buried” in regard to other LibDem sex scandals. As Guido pointed out in the Sun yesterday, we’ve heard Nick Clegg’s excuses before:

“Last year it emerged that Clegg had also ignored two letters sent to him by lawyers representing men who claim they were attacked in the Sixties and Seventies by the late Liberal MP Cyril Smith. Law firm Pannone said: “We have formally written to Nick Clegg’s office on two occasions requesting the chief whips’ files on allegations of abuse at a hostel in Rochdale”. Another case of lost in the post, no doubt.”

Here are the developments in the Mike Hancock scandal this morning:

  • The Sun has revealed Hancock victim “Annie’s” heartbreaking pleas sent to Nick Clegg and the chilling warning the DPM ignored – Guido will post when it’s online.
  • Portsmouth Council LibDem Group have gone into to coalition with Indepedent Councillor Mike Hancock, despite having a majority, so he can keep his job in the council cabinet. This is a direct challenge to Clegg’s authority.
  • The most senior female LibDem on Portsmouth Council has quit in disgust.
  • Portsmouth LibDems are selecting a new candidate for 2015.
  • “Annie” is demanding to meet Nick Clegg for answers on why she was ignored for three years.

Guido has something up his sleeve. Stand back…

    Rennard exploding.

    Not a pretty sight but let it happen!

        In normal circumstances that would be enough to suspend Hancock and possibly bring down the council.

        What hold does Hancock hold over his local and national colleagues? What mechanisms are available to stop a crooked corrupt council?

          Well I think we established yesterday that about 1/6th of the elected LibDem MPs are known to be crooks and perverts.

          What is the chance that a big proportion of the remaining 5/6ths are just as bad but have not been found out yet? And what is the likelihood that they all think it is a bit of a laugh and they have all been swapping stories?

          The fact is that the LibDems have not been under such scrutiny previously, and the scrutiny has already exposed 10 of them. More to come I would guess, unless they force the lid down hard.

          I’m hoping that the whole LibDem party will explode in a deluge of corruption and perversion scandals. I have always said that the only reason anybody joins the LibDems is to indulge in corruption at local level. That is the only motivation for joining the LibDems that makes any kind of sense.

          • FFS says:

            Clegg is a foreigner with a foreign wife that doesn’t give two hoot sfor the UK, would hapily see it over-run with other foreigners and has no real connection with the British people.

            Once all this crap has reached its inevitable conclusion it will be time to change our constitution to ensure that only those that are descendent of third generation Brits can be MPs.

          If you think that E.Balls is struggling with GCSE economics–have a look at this pathetic load of bilge by Owen Jones (age 27 and three quarters). I am simply flabbergasted that a major newspaper would publish this stuff without a few smiley faces dotted around the copy. It look like an “O” Level essay circa 1966 (maybe it is and was copied from his Dad’s old exercise books.



          • FFS says:

            I loved this comment that came after it:

            “Everyone working or not should receive an unconditional income so they can choose to work or not. It would replace all welfare payments and if a person wanted to work they would still receive the unconditional income, but be taxed at 50% on every £1 they earned after it.”

            It really brings home the socialist mindset. It is high time we brought in a kind of national service where everybody has to spend at least 2 years working on a farm so we can bring this kind of mind-numbing bollox to an end.

            If Owen were true to his beliefs he would be busy planting trees because that’s obviously where he believes that money comes from.

            I haven’t seen such rubbish as this since my student days in the seventies.

            The ‘Living Wage’ is seductively attractive because otherwise taxpayers are subsidising either the customers or owners of low wage paying businesses. However, any hike in the minimum wage would increase the marginal cost of labour which might drive some companies out of business and lead other to increase automation meaning that the least productive can’t get jobs.

        I cannot understand what all the fuss is about. I only joined the LibDems from Labour becuase they assured me that Perverts were safe within it’s ranks and many members had constructed safety mechanisms around them through the Freemasons. I know, I am not the only powerful Lib Dem to run a city and it’s planning for decades, to create business relationships with multi millionaire drug dealers (my boys) who can launder their drug profits through providing accommodation for asylum seekers I have arranged to bring in to the city. As for the police in all this, well the answer is to get them in to the same Lodge as me, my political cronies, my boys, senior council officers, specifically the Chief Executive and City Solicitor, who I personally brought in for the self same protection and bingo away we go. Portsmouth is not the only Council to be run this way in this country, I can assure you and if I do not get the whip back I will be joining Randy rennard in full expiosure. Boaz.

        Caught up with it.

        Tullet Prebon Yamane, as Tullet’s were in the late 90s, were / are a good firm, but were direct competition for the major US brokers, EuroBroker’s and Cantor Fitzgerald, especially in the Euro-Dollar markets.

        Very good firm.

        A dazzling insight into how screwed up the Euro project really was at inception could be had if you saw what was going on with the Euro desks at the time. Totally dysfunctional.

        RP Martin used to be a very ‘girly’ outfit, meaning they were reputed to have the most attractive brokers in skirts. Not sure if that is still the case, but if you read the gist of that DM article you will get another bit of insight ;-)

        One of the few professions by the way where being gay or a sexual deviant does not help your career, but being straight and smart does.

        Enjoyed the rotten borough piece you put up.

        Perhaps now a reform act to deal with putrid borough’s is required ?

        Am not sure if there is any sanction other than pitch forks and eventual election for dealing with completely corrupt local councils for example. An unusual and unique circumstance has developed in Portsmouth South which seems to have found a gap in regular moral and ethical decency, as well as the law.

          God! Did they all drink!

          I had noted that they did not take kindly to metrosexuality. :-)

          The dysfunctionality to which you refer washed over the entire banking, insurance and business sectors at that time. There comes a point where you think I can’t be doing with this, I’ll find another way.

          Thanks for that compliment but I actually believe it to be truer as time passes. Nothing as strange as life.

            Believe me, it was never as bad as what was seen on the Euro Desks.

            Total cluster – the tail end of which is now playing out.

            The capacity for alcohol is part of the job spec. What you should note is that they can drink like fish, but still remain straight as a die in thinking. That is the trick.

            Metrosexuality is not generally smiled upon, and quite rightly so – it’s abhorrent.

            Neither are lefty mongs who try to invade trading floors to occupy or make political points. They learned the hard way that one of the sports quite popular in the financial services is boxing. :-)

            Fucking brownshirts in tie-die, the lot of them.


          • The ability to drink and think without the one affecting the other is, thankfully, one I mastered in my late teens by drinking with people considerably older than I was.

            I tend to drink less and think more as I approach my middle ages. :-)

    High time this whole thing went to court. It is in the interests of practically everyone involved, except for the guilty party, that these allegations are heard in open court, and a jury decides the merits of “Annies” complaint.

    You can easily jump to conclusions that those who claim the police will not take the matter to court because this is a stitch-up by the Masons, are in fact correct.

    Yet another example of corruption by those with power against the interests of the ordinary citizen, as if we needed yet another. One wonders what happened to such allegations before the rise of the internet?

            The 4,000 workers at Dagenham are in a much better position than those at Grangemouth as long as they don’t fuck things up for themselves. Of course, with people able to claim £26,000p.a. tax free on bennies they might consider mass lay-offs as nothing more than early retirement and be rather sanguine about not having to work a 40hour week.

      The latest incarnation of socialism is adopting the mantra “No matter how little you work, you will get the same net disposable income as a university graduate doing a 60 hour week”. I think we need another 5 years of Labour in power to demonstrate to our below average intelligence compatriots that this won’t work either.

      Once we have demonstrated to all the people that we have taken out both planks supporting the concept of socialism, Labour will sink into oblivion and then we can get on and run Britain properly.

    Joan Bakewell is on the DP Show. She wants to know where the water is coming from that is flooding the Somerset Levels. Another example of thick labour, and how much does she sponge from the tax payer?
    The water falls down from the sky, it’s called rain and it’s the hydrological cycle.

      I wonder if it is healthy to watch the DP, SP and similar shows. The crashing stupidity of politicos, comedians, journalists and other criminals commenting with a pompous authority on matters that they know ABSOLUTELY nothing about whatsoever just gets my blood pressure doing a Trierweiler.
