Mick Jagger has dinner with Nick Clegg ahead of Hyde Park gig
Mick Jagger had dinner with the UK's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg last week, ahead of The Rolling Stones' Hyde Park show this weekend.

The frontman and his girlfriend, the designer L'Wren Scott, joined Clegg and his wife, the lawyer Miriam Clegg at La Famiglia restaurant near the King's Road on Thursday night, The Times reports. They were also joined by broadcaster Mariella Frostrup and her husband Jason McCue.

Last year, Jagger pulled out of an event hosted by David Cameron after complaining that he was being used as a "political football". Jagger was due to appear at the Davos Summit and attend a tea party at the Swiss resort as part of a campaign to promote Britain, where he would have appeared alongside other prominent figures from the UK, including the model Lily Cole and the inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

However, he later pulled out of the event, stating: "During my career I have always eschewed party politics and came to Davos as a guest, as I thought it would be stimulating. I have always been interested in economics and world events. I now find myself being used as a political football and there has been a lot of comment about my political allegiances, which are inaccurate. I think it's best I decline the invitation to the key event and curtail my visit."
