NICK FERRARI has berated Nicola Sturgeon for flying over to Brussels to speak with the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier about the UK’s Brexit plans.
The LBC host took aim at the Scottish First Minister and accused her of “meddling” after he suggested she would never become the British Prime Minister.
Speaking to a caller on his radio show on Thursday he pointed out the Tories’ deal with the DUP meant Theresa May did not need the assistance of other parties.
He said: “I take on board a point one of my previous contributors made – you could see a scenario that would horrify some and please others that Jeremy Corbyn could be prime minister of this country.
“You can see that scenario, but it’s not going to happen with Nicola Sturgeon is it? So why is she going?”
The caller insisted support should be “cross-party” with regards to the UK’s EU divorce and that the Prime Minister “needs” support.
But the presenter quipped: “No she doesn’t, that’s the whole point, she doesn’t need their support, that’s what the DUP deal gives her.”
The caller then said the deal was a “waste of a billion pounds” and said Mrs May’s own party was “doubting the Brexit she’s trying to achieve”.
But Ferrari fired back: “Come on let’s be honest… it’s just meddling isn’t it?”
The caller argued it was the Tory leader who wanted “the ideas of other parties” in the first place.
But the outspoken commentator blasted back: “That doesn’t mean they’re racing off to see and give everybody else your ideas, that means ‘can I have your ideas’.”
The criticism comes following the SNP leader’s mission to the Belgian capital, joined by Jeremy Corbyn and Labour’s Welsh first minister Carwyn Jones.
The trio met with Mr Barnier – who previously stated he would not negotiate with Scotland behind Britain’s back.
Following the meeting, Mrs Sturgeon said: “I welcomed the opportunity to discuss Scotland’s priorities with Mr Barnier – in particular, our view that the UK should seek to remain in the single market.
“I outlined to Mr Barnier that our priority is to protect Scotland’s vital economic interests and that the Scottish Government will do all it can to build a consensus against an extreme Brexit outside the single market, which would have potentially catastrophic consequences for jobs, investment and our living standards.”
