Lord Rennard: What did Nick Clegg know, and when?

I'm interested into why Clegg specifically named Danny Alexander as part of this debacle.

Is Danny's star waning?

Clegg's statement reminded me of Bill Clinton hiding behind semantics. How could he be unaware of it if "his office" asked Danny Alexander to have a word with Lord Rennard? What, specifically, were the "non-specific" allegations? What did he do to investigate and add specificity?

Anyway, it's starting to unravel quite quickly

Let us remind ourselves what the pious St Clegg said:

“Clearly what happened on a large scale was people felt so intimidated by fame and power that they didn’t speak up for a long period of time.

Serious questions need to be asked and if after we find out what’s happened it’s clear that people have turned a blind eye or, worse still connived with it then of course they’re going to have to be held to account and heads – if that turns out to be the case – will need to roll.”
