I know I covered this yesterday, but that was very much a copy and paste, with a bit of Photoshop chucked in for good measure. The more my tiny blog head thinks about this story the more I believe Cleggs stance has cornered him into an impossible position. If he did know about Cyril Smith pre Simon Danczuk’s revelations, he is simply a liar. If, as he claims, he didn’t know about the Smith paedo allegations, he is so out of touch with the real world and indeed the liberal half of his own party, what the hell is he doing in the job in the first place. Let’s not forget, Clegg started his political life working for Leon Brittan on the EU gravy train, so it’s not as if he hasn’t been around a bit.
Talking of Leon Brittan, isn’t it rather odd that when you Google Cyril Smith, you get the following suggestions.
OK, I can understand why Simon Danczuk is there, Jeremy Thorpe, well we all remember the “beam up Scottie” jokes, David Steel, knew Uncle Cyril liked a bit of bare bottom boy spanking, Sidney Cooke, that’s easy, prolific paedophile, but I just can’t put my finger on why Nick Cleggs old boss Leon Brittan is there? When Bill Maloney challenged Nick Clegg about Leon Brittan on budget day, Nick couldn’t remember much about that either.
Anyway, back to Clegg, the Cyril Smith story has been around the MSM since his death. Clegg said that he had never heard of any rumours around Sir Cyril’s behaviour despite the allegations being reported in Private Eye in 1979. All very strange.
The other thing that I found odd today, the Mail did a nice bit about Squirming Cleggie, publishing the following image.
The byline mentions Smith, Thorpe,& Steel, but totally ignores former leader Jo Grimond, very sloppy if you ask me. Read more
