Source - The Daily Express

Seven politicians, including five party leaders, joined the ITV debate on Sunday evening. Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage left some members of the audience laughing, with others breaking into applause as he clashed with the SNP leader. Responding to the Scottish First Minister, Mr Farage said: “Brexit is going to be a great thing for the country Nicola, it is going to give us independence, I thought you liked independence? “We are going to be a free nation, catch our own fish.” Some members of the audience started laughing as the SNP leader snapped back at Mr Farage. She said: “If Scotland was independent, we wouldn’t be getting dragged out of the European Union against our will.” Mr Farage quickly replied: “You want to be independent? You can’t be independent and be in the EU”. The remark sparked applause from some members of the ITV audience. As he turned on Labour's Richard Burgon, Mr Farage added: “Isn’t the real key here - Labour’s referendum would give us a choice, would it not of Remain, versus Remain?” The Scottish First Minister was quizzing Conservative representative for the evening, Rishi Sunak, over whether the UK could still leave the EU with no deal. The ITV debate was hosted by Julie Etchingham as politicians answered questions from a selected studio audience before debating.
