Rennard Statement in Full

Lord Rennard has come out fighting, albeit via a ‘friend’:

Lord Rennard refutes these allegations. He will co-operate with any properly constituted inquiry.

He has been notified of an internal investigatory panel within the Party. The matter must now be regarded as sub judice pending its proceedings and no further statement will be issued in the interim.

He expects others to respect the sub judice principle, and he notes that under the party rules concerned it is for any case made against him to be proved by evidence to the requisite standard. He denies impropriety.

He would reiterate that in 27 years of working for the Liberal Democrats he received no complaint or allegation about his behaviour.

Nor is he aware of any personal complaints being made in the three and a half years since he stood down as chief executive until last week.

 So he’s denying Danny had a word?

Quote of the Day

A senior Brexiter:

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
