LISTEN: Clegg Shifts Blame Over Child Rape Charge Councillor

Clegg has been busy blaming everyone but himself and his party’s internal structures on LBC this morning. Asked twice about child rape charge councillor Ryan Hope, count the number of times Clegg blames the “local party” for the communication screw up.

Laughing while talking about such a dark case hardly sends the best message either.

Amusingly, Clegg went on to say:

“Of course I am not sitting on any allegations that have yet to come to light, I would never do that.”

Of course, Deputy Prime Minister.

    Politicus says:

    I suspect he is being lawyerly with the verb “to sit”. He is sitting on a chair.

    But I bet his inbox, desk, filing cabinet and other things in his office have many documents warning of LibDem sex pests and he’s done nothing.

    Sue says:

    Clegg really is despicable public school boy scum.

    If it was not for his families European banking banking empire you would not trust him to sweep the streets.

    Truly disgusting that he will not accept responsibility for actions he knew full well about.

    He put his party & his loyalty to his fellow Lib Dem scum bags before the safety of a vulnerable woman.

    In any other profession he would be sacked.

    -Some of the children had been subjected to “truly appalling” abuse, Osbourne was told. “It’s stomach turning,” the Southwark Crown Court judge told him.-

    Yeah, they had to attend the LibDem conference in Glasgow.

    MIKE HANDLECOCK (give me a chance princess) says:

    The military have arrived in the flood zone
    One landrover with two occupants .That should sort it out
    The gov has told the local authorities that they must pay for their services , what a joke
    When we see these tosser MP’s on a jolly to Afghanistan wasting ammunition firing at the desert , while they play with the weapons for the photo shoots , do the mp’s stump up for that ?

    Thought not

    Dave stopped the dredging three years ago because “We” couldn’t afford it

    Now he wants to start dredging the rivers , while they are still flooded

    Forward planning Dave style

I confidently expect an urgent question to IDS to be tabled in Parliament by Labour and lots of lucrative legal cases to be brought against IDS and DWP under the relevant article of HRA…plenty to steam up Cameron’s right wing eurosceptics

    My understanding is that river dredging was terminated in Somerset some 20 years ago and the equipment sold off by the Environment Agency. The current head of the Agency is the HIV positive, gay Lord Smith (according to his CV) held a position in a housing charity before becoming a Labour MP, a Member of the HoL and holding various non-jobs on the boards of the National Theatre, the ASA and various “cultural” committees. He may have some knowledge of the countryside through his membership of the Ramblers’ Association though. Lord Smith says that dredging is not the answer and the Agency’s website implies that dredging causes more severe flooding than neglect. He clearly knows better than the experts.

    A museum in Germany has discovered artefacts from the original excavation at Neanderthal Valley by Johan Karl Fuhlrott that were stored in their store room since the date of the original excavation in 1856.

    Early examination seems to suggest that it is some sort of fibrous envelope or packet containing shreds of some sort of vegetation. The packet has some faded writing which experts have been able to decipher as possibly “Park Drive” Untipped and “Smoking Can Kill You if the Mammoth don’t get you first ?
