NICK Clegg and Nigel Farage have both admitted that they will have firearms at tonight’s televised debate on Europe.
Clegg sneaked onto the set last night and gaffer-taped a Glock 17 to the underside of his podium, while Farage will have a British-made Enfield revolver, as used in World War Two, tucked into his waistband.
Clegg said: “It’s obvious to anyone that this debate will turn ugly, and I’m not going to be the guy bringing a knife to a gunfight.”
Ballistics expert Roy Hobbs said: “Clegg clearly lacks the forearm strength to control the Glock’s powerful recoil, so I wouldn’t advise sitting near the front.
“Meanwhile Farage’s vintage weapon will be all rusty from being kept in his airing cupboard and is almost certain to explode, blowing his stupid face off.”
