WOMEN voters will wonder if they can trust Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's party after the Liberal Democrats let down their own female members.

The grassroots backlash was as justified as it was predictable when senior peer Lord Rennard was informed he would not be expelled despite an inquiry finding he caused distress to several women by invading their personal space.

He may now play a role in writing the party election manifesto - so the sections on equality and respect in particular will be closely read.

When the claims were first aired, Mr Clegg admitted he and his party had failed women members. Many will feel he and the Lib Dems failed women a second time yesterday.
