This is probably what will happen.
The issue is that Clegg is an Establishment candidate. If the Pro-EU arguer were non-Establishment like farage is perceived to be, it would be fairly simple to counter his points by arguing that while Brussels politicians are Wankers, so are ours, and what the entire continent needs is more democratic participation, not less.

1. He's good and getting people angry at foreigners
2. Practically everybody hates Nick Clegg
I'm also pretty sure that tuition fees will get into the debate somehow.

It's Clegg who repeatedly (including just now, in his party political broadcast) rattles off the line that three million jobs depend on our EU membership. This is false. It's based on a disingenuous misreading (that assumes, bizarrely, that all our trade with the EU would cease, and not be replaced by anything, in the event of our withdrawal) of a claim made over a decade ago, before the proportion of our trade with the EU shrunk. What's illogical fearmongering, if not that?
