Nick Clegg Should Hire Me As An Adviser

How's this for an explanation of what happened?

"I learned about Lord Rennard's little problem back in 2008 and asked Danny Alexander to have a word with him in private. Shortly afterwards Lord Rennard resigned. I'll leave it to you to imagine what exactly transpired at that meeting.  And, no, we didn't tell the media at the time because we prefer not to wash our dirty linen in public. Who does?"

If you look at the facts as we know them it seems to me that Clegg acted exactly as a leader should- firmly, decisively- even ruthlessly. Why then is he trying to create an impression of shiftiness and lack of grip?
