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…
