Nigel Farage has torn into Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, describing her as the “single-most unpleasant leader I've ever met”.

Speaking on GB News’ Dan Wootton Tonight, Nigel hit out at Scotland’s continuous independence plans.

The former Brexit Party leader said: “They want to keep the pound, but of course be separate from the Bank of England.

“They want to be in NATO but ditch Trident, I mean the whole thing is all over the shop.

“Alex Salmond thinks that his Alba party can provide a real challenge and yet if we’re honest about it, he hasn’t done that well.

“He was a driving force behind making the SNP the biggest party in Scottish politics and yet that vote hasn’t transferred on a personal level.

“Whether that’s a result of the endless accusations, which incidentally he won his court case over, but somehow she’s (Sturgeon) the Queen bee.”

Nigel then delved deeper into his previous encounters with Ms Sturgeon.

He added: “I want to tell you on a personal level, I’ve appeared in national debates with them, been in green rooms with them, been on programmes with them.

“I’ve met leaders from all over the world, I’ve met the Pope, the Dalai Lama, I’ve met the US President, the French President, the German Chancellor, you name it I’ve met them.

“But the single most unpleasant, sour-faced, humourless person of all the people I’ve met among world leaders I’ve met is Nicola Sturgeon bar none.

“It isn’t just that she’s wrong, she’s deeply unpleasant and I also think very hypocritical with it too.”
