SHEFFIELD-BORN nightclub owner Peter Stringfellow, aged 72, has indicated he could stand against Nick Clegg in Hallam at the next general election.

He told radio presenter James Whale: “I think ‘why not?’. It has opened my mind to the possibility and the idea of going back to my home city and taking him on would be my first choice. Everybody knows my clubs are full of beautiful girls taking their clothes off. I don’t want to be Hugh Hefner... so a bit later on in life I like the idea of going into politics and I think I could contribute the reality.”

The Deputy Prime Minister twice singled him out as someone who did not deserve state-funded pensioner benefits.
