No question of being friends with Cameron: Clegg

London: British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg says his relationship with Prime Minister David Cameron is "not a question of being friends" and that they disagree on a lot of things.

"We text each other. It`s not a question of being friends. We get on fine. Because, by definition, we disagree about a lot of things, it`s strangely liberating. You can be straightforward," Clegg says in the December issue of Esquire.

"We`re very candid. You have to be. You`re constantly making compromises. I don`t think either of us are personalities who, when we go into the office, need to look for friends," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

"I`m lucky, I`ve got lots of friends. I`m not hunting for friends," Clegg says.
