Tonight’s second Scottish debate ended in anger as UKIP’s David Coburn was accused of being a “disgrace”.
In a discussion in the final moments of the debate, Coburn emphasised that his party would be against anyone who wanted to “break up” the UK.
Sturgeon went on to say she was relieved that she’s not in agreement with UKIP over the UK’s direction.
Coburn had attracted continuous boos and criticism throughout the debate, but it was his repeated mentions of leaving the EU that left audiences annoyed.
His closing comments suggested that 70% of decisions which affect the UK are made by an unelected commission.
Yet Coburn’s comments only brought on more criticism from fellow leaders with Sturgeon accusing him of being “narrow-minded” and “xenophobic”.
Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy also lost his temper at the UKIP MEP for “blaming immigrants who make our country richer”.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson supported Sturgeon’s comments on Coburn and closed the debate by emphasising the possibility of negotiating a better deal with Europe.
