    Well would you believe it, the irrepressible Nicola Surgeon has reappeared. I had quite forgotten about Ms Sturgeon.

    Suppose she had to gain some attention, but has only succeeded by saying everybody is mad who supports BREXIT.

    Thing is we have a saying down yer in the West Country, "everybody about these parts has gone Bodmin, except thee and me, and I sometimes wonder about thee".

    Nicola Sturgeon brands Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Gove 'MAD-Brexiteers' in SHOCKING interview

    NICOLA STURGEON took a massive swipe at leading Brexit supporters Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Michael Gove during an interview in Brussels, branding them 'mad-Brexiteers'.

    Sturgeon lashes out at Brexiteers for 'peddling myths'

    Nicola Sturgeon, who has threatened to reignite her relentless push for Scottish independence, criticised Brexiteers Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

    The Scottish First Minister headed to Brussels on Monday to meet with the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier.

    During an interview with Politico, Ms Sturgeon took the swipe at the leading Brexiteers.

    She said: “What I am about to say is not necessarily the statement of opinion or how I might like the world to be, it is just a statement of fact.

    “The EU has been pretty clear from day one. There can’t be a ‘pick n mix’ approach, after Brexit the UK is a third country, and it will be dealt with and certain things will follow.

    “You can’t be in the club and ignore all of the founding rules of the club.

    “I don’t think there has ever been a point from the EU’s side where that has not been made clear.

    “But there has been, on the part of some people, the hard Brexiteers, a sort of willful refusal to accept that because they think they can still peddle all the myths they peddled during the referendum campaign."

    She added: “It goes back to the point, two years ago you could possibly be a fantasist and have the moment of truth appearing to be quite far down the road.

    “The moment of truth is now staring people in the face and sooner rather than later that moment of truth has to force a choice on the UK Government.”

    Ms Sturgeon also claimed Westminster was not listening to a range of opinions on Brexit when she targeted Mr Johnson, Mr Gove and Mr Rees-Mogg.

    “One of the problems for the UK Government right now, in my view, is that they are not really listening to anybody apart from the mad-Brexiteers,” she said.

    “For the avoidance of doubt I am talking about people like Boris Johnson, just in case people thought I wasn’t naming names. Jacob Rees-Mogg, Michael Gove, I think we know who we are talking about here.

    “That’s the problem, even though I don’t think these people speak for a majority in there of their support for a hard-Brexit, they are the ones who are being listened too.”

    The Scottish First Minister also claimed the UK was entering a “critical stage” in the next few weeks in Brexit negotiations.

    She said: “To cut to the chase, reality at some point has to bite for the UK.

    “Currently the Government is trying to reconcile a whole plethora of irreconcilable issues. At some point, it has to choose.

    “At the point, it has to choose, I think there is a prospect that choice, because of the dynamic in the House of Commons and the country more generally that choice takes us in the direction of the customs union and single market.”

    Nicola Sturgeon's most outrageous quotes

    The nationalist chief always has plenty to say

    'Men - the colour of their tie is the most difficult decision they have to make every day'


    'Men - the colour of their tie is the most difficult decision they have to make every day'

    Ms Sturgeon’s visit to Brussels comes just days after she launched her economic blueprint for Scottish independence, although voters are still in the dark over the timing of any second referendum.

    Ms Sturgeon said: “People and businesses are desperate for clarity on Brexit but with just months to go before the withdrawal agreement has to be signed the UK Government still cannot agree a position.

    “This damaging uncertainty could come to an immediate end if only the UK Government would put jobs and living standards first and agree to continuing Single Market and Customs Union membership – for Scotland and the whole of the UK.”

    Perhaps Ms Sturgeon needs to go to Bodmin
