Deputy PM’s dinner date with Stones star Jagger

Have your say

Sheffield MP and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has been dining with rock and roll royalty.

The Liberal Democrat leader was snapped leaving a London restaurant after having a meal with Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger.

The singer had snubbed a previous request to have dinner with Prime Minister David Cameron because he did not want to be used as a ‘political football’.

A spokesman for Mr Clegg, Sheffield Hallam MP, said: “Nick and his wife Miriam had dinner with Mick Jagger, his partner L’Wren Scott, Mariella Frostrup and her husband Jason McCue.

“It was a private social dinner and was a ‘really enjoyable’ evening.

“It was the first time Nick had met Mick Jagger. Nick is a fan of the Rolling Stones.”

The meal took place at La Famiglia restaurant in King’s Road, Chelsea.

Mr Clegg formed a love of the Stones while at Westminster School.

He has previously told listeners of his LBC radio show he would ‘love to go’ to see the Rolling Stones at Glastonbury, but his busy schedule meant he was unable to attend.

When he turned down dinner with Cameron, Jagger said: “There has been a lot of comment about my political allegiances, which are inaccurate.”
