+++ Source : LibDems "Uneasy" Over Rennard Expenses +++

Shhh, Don't Tell Anyone We're in StockwellThe Federal Executive of the LibDems is meeting at 5.30 tonight.  Guido hears there are mutterings about the party chief-exec Chris Rennard’s expenses situation (he is a non-voting member of the executive).  He pretends his main residence is in Eastbourne and thus claims for “second home” expenses in London.  He also signs into the attendance register at the Lords on his way to do his day job at the LibDem HQ office in Cowley Street.  Handy extra dosh to pay for all those summer parties he and Lady Rennard throw in their Stockwell home just over the other side of the Thames.

Wonder if they will just ask him not to throw any more parties?

UPDATE : Liberal Vision’s Mark Littlewood is reporting that LibDem Voice’s Alix Mortimer has written to members of the Fed Exec calling for a resolution of the Rennard problem.  The grassroots is calling for him to be brought to book: privately behind closed doors and under point 5 (subsections [a] to [b]) of her blog post. Insurrection is in the air…
