Friday night saw the latest round of televised debates for the general election as members of all of Britain's major political parties attempted to put their case forward.

Although the likes of Boris Johnson, Jeremy Corbyn and Nigel Farage were not there other party leaders, such as Caroline Lucas, Jo Swinson and Nicola Sturgeon were in attendance.

Predictably the debate would turn to the biggest topic of the day, Brexit and yes, Brexit Party chairman Richard Tice had a thing or two to say about leaving the EU.

Towards the end of a statement about what he would say to Donald Trump, when he visits the UK next week, Tice said:

Let's get a quick trade deal done.

Immediately after he finished Sturgeon intervened and jokingly said:

And here's our NHS, is what he would say.

Sturgeon is obviously referring to the reports that suggest that the government are willing to sell the National Health Service to the United States, once Brexit is completed.

A furious Tice hit back, yelling:

Oh nonsense, stop this scaremongering. It's pathetic. Just lying to the British people continuously. It's pathetic.

The Scot wasn't going to take his clap back lightly, and replied by saying:

I think you've got form on that.

Sturgeon's reply was met with laughter and applause from the audience, while Tice was left speechless and gobsmacked at what he had just heard.

This small interaction and Tice's face afterwards, did not go unnoticed on Twitter and they were all here for the shade that Sturgeon was throwing.
