Well done Lord Rennard for not saying sorry. I thought at first that he should, just to get the whole thing over with, to partially placate those monstrously transgressed women who may once have had their personal space ‘violated’ by the bloke. But that was wrong. Stick to your guns and tell them to get stuffed. The Met Police found no case to answer when they investigated these allegations. An internal Lib Dem inquiry headed by a QC found similarly, despite Nick Clegg’s hope that it would nail the poor bugger and give him a convenient escape route. Now that the inquiry has said no action should be taken against Rennard, perhaps the women might say sorry to him for dragging him through the mire. But hell will freeze over before that happens. They think they’ve been wronged and no QC will disabuse them of that mistaken idea. Grow up.
