Controversial and outspoken columnist and reality TV aficionado Katie Hopkins has launched a scathing attack on Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP in a call urging Scotland to vote Conservatives on June 8.

The 42-year-old staunch Tory described Ms Sturgeon as “the Ginger Dwarf from the North” and said Ms Black needs to learn “some useful life skills, like how to talk, write, or use shampoo.”

Hopkins, who first shot to prominence in 2007 when she appeared in reality TV show The Apprentice, appealed to those north of the border: “If you are sick to the back teeth of the Ginger Dwarf from the North spouting her nonsense in Westminster, acting as first minister for Independence, instead of First Minister for Scotland, now is your chance.

Theresa May threw the nation into chaos on Tuesday when she made the shock announcement that a general election is set to take place in just seven weeks’ time – three years ahead of schedule.

Mrs May described how it was the only way to guarantee political stability for the entire nation as Britain prepares to head out of the European Union.

Ms Sturgeon has since said voters in the upcoming council election have a “clear choice” between the SNP and a Conservative party which has become a ” Brexit-at-all-costs machine”.

The SNP leader will join council candidates in Edinburgh to launch the SNP’s manifesto for the May 4 local government election.
