You do have to shake your head at the weasel words and double speak in Clegg's statement over the Rennard allegations
In a carefully scripted statement last night, Nick Clegg said that he
had, after all, been aware of "indirect and non-specific concerns". Then
he told the BBC this morning that "no very specific allegations" had been made before last week. He then added that they were "certainly not put to me" and that "no woman spoke out in detail".
