WATCH: Nigel Farage takes on Nick Clegg in EU debate on LBC

Posted on Wednesday, 26 March by

In one of the most eagerly anticipated political battles since the televised debates in 2010, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg will go head-to-head with UKIP poster boy Nigel Farage at 7pm tonight in the first of two debates about whether Britain should stay in the European Union (EU).

Before the duo bring their battle to the BBC next week, LBC Radio are hosting the unlikely debate between Clegg – deputy prime minister – and Farage, UKIP leader and Member of the European Parliament. Both are good talkers, so expect fireworks.

Farage has spent two decades campaigning for Britain to leave the EU and it’s pretty much all that UKIP are known for, while Clegg will present his case that Britain are better off retaining close links with our European neighbours for economic purposes.

The Liberal Democrats’ reputation has plummeted since ‘#IAgreeWithNick’ became a thing at the last General Election and Clegg eyes this debate as the first step to redemption, while Farage and UKIP are enjoying something of a bounce in the polls…will this be their next step to success in 2015?

Tune into the live stream above at 7pm to find out.

Let battle commence!
