Sarah Teather’s Accident at Work

Have you had an accident at work? Slipped, tripped or fell into an inappropriate position with a colleague? Sarah Teather has the answer. The silent LibDem has just pocketed a £2,000 donation from Simple Claims, an ambulance-chasing personal injury compensation firm. Apparently “everyone in the workplace, including visitors and members of the public, are at risk”, and Simple Claims are “experts in providing hassle free quick settlements”. Every little helps…

Lord Rennard Mistaken Identity

Friday Caption Contest: LibDem Celebrations Edition

Another LibDem Peer Attacks the Media for Exposing Rennard

Another LibDem peer with his head in the sand; Lord Newby insists he knew nothing of Rennard’s randy ways. The party’s chief whip in the Lords told the Daily Politics the whole nasty matter will soon be dealt with, thank goodness, because “we’ve got a properly appointed detective now”. He might be loathe to admit it but Rennard would never have been held to account if it were not for the self-appointed detectives Clegg and co clearly despise so much. The properly appointed detective is five years too late.

Burstow’s Radio Silence

It is worth noting what Guido had to say about Paul Burstow’s involvement in dealing with the Rennard allegtions back in May 2009:

“Paul Burstow, Chief Whip in the House of Commons, phoned a number of female LibDem PPCs personally to assure them that Chris Rennard would no longer be in charge of their careers. A number of Cowley Street staffers are rejoicing at the departure of of the Chief Executive.  Mostly female staff…”

Burstow has just had a nightmare under pressure from LBC’s Julia Hartley-Brewer:

No answers in a textbook car crash interview. Guido is working on getting the audio…

Knowledge Is Great

Your Souvenir Lord Rennard By-Election Stickers

Guido hopes former by-election supremo Lord Rennard will appreciate his Eastleigh souvenir stickers. Back in 1983 Liberal activists fighting against Peter Tatchell in Bermondsey infamously if unsubtly wore “I’ve been kissed by Peter” badges. It’s only fair randy Rennard gets a taste of his own medicine…

Another LibDem Peer Defends Randy Rennard

Weirdy-beardy Lord Greaves has been at it again on the LibDem forum; smearing one of the women at the centre of the allegations as untrustworthy and a “fundraiser who raised less money than she cost to employ”. Guido hears he’s been referred to the internal investigation on the matter. Now Shirley Williams has come out to bat for Rennard, insisting that “he is a very fine man”. Something is badly wrong when the only LibDem women willing to talk to the press are defending the party sex pest…

Silent Sarah Teather Jokes About Avoiding the Media

Given the very obvious lack of female LibDem MPs coming forward to discuss Lord Rennard on the airwaves, is it really wise for one of them to joke about avoiding the cameras?

Sarah Teather has been located at last: she’s on the way to Eastleigh:

You might not want to do media, Sarah, but Guido suspects others in your party would like you to take the bold step and speak up. What did you know of Lord Rennard’s ways and when? As a female candidate selected to fight a winnable by-election masterminded by the man himself, she would be able to shed some light on the situation. Why so quiet?

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
