In an interview with LBC Radio this morning Nick Clegg accused Simon Danczuk of “airbrushing” Cyril Smith’s Labour Party past.
John Mann said “This is an outrageous attack on campaigning Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk. Nick Clegg has clearly not read the book Simon Danczuk wrote in which he highlights the role of Labour MP and whip Jack McCann.”
“Nick Clegg should apologise to Simon Danczuk & the people of Rochdale. He should also open up all Lib Dem files on Cyril Smith for public scrutiny, including all files on Lib Dem investigations into Rochdale.”
