Lord Rennard on Cyril Smith: “a personal inspiration to me”

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Lib Dems!)


Liberal Democrat peer Lord Rennard once said Liberal MP Cyril Smith – who had his own ‘problems’ with sexual harassment allegations including accusations of child abuse – was a “personal inspiration” to him.

Rennard’s fulsome praise of Smith can be seen here in the comments section of the Liberal Democrat Voice

Yes Chris. I’m sure he was..

Interestingly, also in the same comments section we can see Lib Dem president Tim Farron referring to Smith as an “idol” of his:

Looks like this isn’t the first time senior Liberal Democrats have managed to turn a blind eye to the dodgy activities of one of its leading members.
