Ross' New Cockney Rhyming Slang - Nick Clegg

Hot on the heels of my introduction of Terry Wogan to the world of rhyming slang, I introduce everyone's favourite leader of the Liberal Democrats and deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg. I did think of using his name to refer to a leg, especially in the phrase "he doesn't have a Nick Clegg to stand on", but if it was used to refer to David Cameron being bang out of order then it would just have been confusing.

So Nick Clegg is new rhyming slang for beg, as in the phrase "If I couldn't afford tuition fees I would Nick Clegg, borrow or steal my way to university"

David Cameron demonstrates to Nick Clegg how to nick clegg from Nick Clegg
