A new euphemism

The Guardian reports:
Nick Clegg is facing a fresh dilemma over whether to kick Lord Rennard out of the Liberal Democrats after the peer apologised for possibly encroaching on the personal space of four female activists.
The statement said Rennard recognised that he may have encroached upon "personal space" and would "therefore like to apologise sincerely for any such intrusion and assure them that this would have been inadvertent"
And thus, allegedly, he was an inadvertent personal space encroacher, rather than a common-or-garden creep.
