DOZENS of people have signed up in two days to quiz Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg in Oxford on Tuesday.

The Oxford Mail is hosting a special meeting that will allow our readers to put their questions direct to the Liberal Democrat leader two days before the council and European parliament elections.

The event is free to attend and will be held at a city centre location from 12.30pm.

You have to apply for a place but anyone of any political persuasion will be welcome to attend. The only vetting will be for security purposes, not political.

A Liberal Democrat spokesman said last night: “Nick is really looking forward to coming to Oxford and answering your questions directly. We are delighted to have had dozens of applications in just the first two days. Space will be limited so we would urge you to apply to be part of the audience as soon as possible.”

Oxford Mail editor Simon O’Neill added: “This will not be some Liberal Democrat rally and we’re expecting Mr Clegg to get some challenging questions from our audience.”

The closing date for applications is Sunday at 6pm.

Audience members will be informed on Monday of the location once they have been accepted. You will need to produce photo ID to get in.

Lord Palmerstone says...

I can't be there but can someone ask him why the Liberals or the SDP or whatever his party is supposed to be don't believe in equal sized constituencies? It surely can't be just about this man's pomposity when his silly plan for the House of Lords was (quite correctly) binned-or can it?
