He tweets – Accepted Nick Clegg’s offer of a debate, hope the others join in too. Ed’s been particularly quiet…UPDATE TAP – Cameron says he’s too busy! Running scared will not look good.
Farage’s next tweet
#thingsthatDavidCameronmightbedoing as he’s ‘too busy’ to take part in the debates’?
TAP – No doubt there will be many suggestions. I posited that he would be attending so many Satanic child sacrifice rituals. What’s your best idea? He’ll be in for major ridicule, I suspect…..
EARLIER tweet – Just arriving Leicester Square to do @LBC. According to the @LibDems I’m chicken. Find out in half an hour.
Nigel Farage ‘can hardly wait’ to debate EU with Nick CleggMr Farage hopes to top the polls in May’s European electionsUKIP, which wants to leave the EU, hopes to top May’s poll while the Lib Dems say they are “the party of ‘in'”.The Lib Dem leader threw down the gauntlet to Mr Farage on Thursday, saying he was the right person to debate the issue of Europe with the UKIP leader.
‘No choice’In response, Mr Farage said he wanted the Conservative and Labour leaders to join a four-man debate.But, even if they declined, he said he would take on the Lib Dem leader in a head-to-head duel, adding “it’s on”.
UPDATE – Was Clegg told by Cameron he wouldn’t qualify to be included in the main debates any longer after losing deposit at Wythenshawe? Did he then challenge Farage in a fit of peek to put one back over on Cameron and Miliband? Or is there another game going on here? Cameron and Miliband are now saying to Clegg that he could be excluded from main TV debate after agreeing to debate Farage. But his exclusion probably came in front of that moment and this all happened the other way around. Clegg in rage benefiting Farage and giving him the ‘in’ he is looking for.
