Clegg ‘Personally Told About Rennard Rumours in 2008′

Clegg only talks about his office hearing the Rennard rumours in his statement: “I am angry and outraged at the suggestion that I would not have acted if these allegations were put to me”. ITV’s Lucy Manning and the Telegraph report that a LibDem raised concerns with Clegg personally in 2008:

“I was at an event with Nick Clegg and said Nick, you need to know that we have print journalists which I believe were, I think the Telegraph were chasing it, the Mail was chasing it and the News of the World was chasing it.

I said I believe there are three papers that are actively pursuing the Rennard story and he knew exactly what I meant, there was no ‘what are you talking about?’

As the party leader he knew exactly what I meant when I said it to him. He said, ‘Thank you very much, I will go and deal with it.’ And again nothing happened.”

Clegg’s clarification of his clarification needs…clarifying.

Clegg’s Conservative Christmas Card

nick-clegg-xmas-card

Nick Clegg’s Christmas Card is the only political leader’s one that is Christmassy. The seasonal collage featuring Father Christmas and a snowman is by 8-year-old Caitlin Costello, who won a competition to feature on the LibDem leader’s card.  Both Ed Miliband’s card and David Cameron’s card are deficient in Christmas aspects. So it is good to see Clegg taking a more conservative line…

Cleggapology: Promising to Keep Promises Again

£250,000 For Dinner With Nick Clegg

While the sky-high union funding of the Labour Party will hardly come as a surprise, Guido was intrigued to note a sizeable donation to the LibDems in today’s latest figures. The largest yellow donation was generously given by a property development company by the name of Brompton Capital Limited. Brompton Capital – owned by millionaire businessman Rumi Verjee, an entrepreneur who made his fortune selling pizza - gave the LibDems £250,000 in the second quarter of 2012. Guido is sure that it is nothing than coincidence that last year Verjee dined with Nick Clegg at the LibDem leader’s posh home in Kent. Hopefully Verjee got more than a Domino’s for his money…

Clegg Car Crash Grinds Coalition to a Halt

The Coalition are forever telling us how they want to get the country moving, but today the LibDems have firmly slammed on the brakes not once, but twice. This morning they conspired to lose the votes of just about anyone who owns a car by suggesting that the 30mph speed limit on residential roads be slashed to 20mph. The  baffling suggestion was dismissed by the AA as being “totally impractical and would impact on driving times and add to costs and delays“.

If that wasn’t enough, Team Clegg then picked a fight with Justine Greening by proposing a motion to oppose Boris’ Thames Estuary airport, or any new runways at any of the London airports. The LibDems have ground the government to a standstill, now they’re doing the same to the country too…

Chart: LibDem Promises Spin Unravels

LibDem MPs have been out in force this afternoon in an attempt to spin themselves as always having kept their side of the Coalition agreement. First Nick Clegg insisted: “my party has held to that contract, even when it meant voting for things that we found difficult. I am proud that we have met our obligations“. Then Simon Hughes chipped in: “We have delivered everything“. Oh really?

Not for the first time, yellow rhetoric is some way off the truth. On Lords reform 91 out of 305 Conservative MPs voted against the bill, or 29.8%. Yet on tuition fees 21 of the 57 LibDem MPs, some 36.8%, rebelled. On trickier decisions, a greater proportion of Tories have kept their promises than LibDems. Who’d have thought it…

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
