Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson was appearing on Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday ahead of next week’s general election. The Remainer told Sky News a “cosy stitch-up” between Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson “changes arithmetic and makes it more difficult” for the Liberal Democrats to win the election. But Ms Swinson was left squirming when Ms Ridge ruthlessly tore apart her argument by explaining she, herself, was in a “cosy stitch-up” with the Green Party.

Addressing her election chances, Ms Swinson said: “What we have seen is a cosy stitch-up between Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson. 

“Obviously that is very worrying to many people who have supported the Conservatives, as Boris Johnson is Nigel Farage’s candidate for Prime Minister.”

But Ms Ridge fired back: “But you have had a cosy stitch-up with the Greens!

“You have been making your own alliances?”
