NICK Clegg biographer Jasper Gerard copped it yesterday after talking on the World At One about the Lord Rennard case. Quotes like “this isn’t the Jimmy Savile case revisited” and will we be “dredging up things that Lloyd George did” hit the wrong note – listen HERE to what he said in full. There were calls for him to be deselected from from the election fight he’s only just begun in Maidstone and the Weald. Had things worked out differently, Jasper might actually have been the Lib Dem candidate in Hampstead and Kilburn, rather than over in Kent. The whispers were once strong that he was more than a little interested in following in Ed Fordham’s footsteps. In a high profile constituency like ours, he would certainly have made good copy for journalists with even half an eye on the race.
