Is clegg honest or will he wriggle at all costs
Over several days, Nick Clegg has maintained that he didn’t know about the sex allegations against Lord Rennard, but after three days of denying all knowledge of the allegations, Clegg has finally admitted knowing about "general" allegations. What does that mean? Is it the same sort of general denial that came from Clinton with his famous "I did not have sex with that woman".
Nick Clegg's leadership of the Liberal Democrats, or even as an MP is seriously under question. Even the party's president said it had 'screwed up' the handling of sex assault claims against Lord Rennard.
Clegg hates being put under scrutiny, he gives the impression of being a person apart from the rest, but I want to point out that we are not interested in the Tittle tattle of the sex allegations, what we want to know is, is clegg honest or will he wriggle at all costs to protect his party to the detriment of the electorate, and this is another example where it appear that the answer is yes.
Clegg faces accusations of a ‘classic cover-up’ after he admitted he has known for five years that Lord Rennard faced 'indirect and non-specific' claims of molesting women, though he is now shifting his ground by conceding he was aware of concerns. Why not tell the truth insterad of playing with words. Believe me, the electorate are not as stupid you you think.
