Sturgeon shamed for Brexit bashing as social media users call for Trump style Twitter ban
Nicola Sturgeon has ‘no option’ but independence says expert
Brexiteers have called on the social media giant to suspend Ms Sturgeon’s account after Mr Trump was permanently banned on Friday after he allegedly breached the website’s rules. It happened on Sunday, when the Scottish First Minister retweeted a threat from James Withers, the CEO of Scotland Food and Drinkk,claiming the first week of Brexit had been “bad”.
Mr Withers wrote: “More messages from food exporters who are finding the door to the EU is now shut.
“Haulage firms won’t take their loads; bureaucratic/IT systems failing.
“A multi-billion pound trade system is being tested for the 1st time, in real time.
“And it’s going wrong Brexit, week 1 was bad. Week 2 will be worse.

“UK Govt’s dismissal of the request from us (& most main business orgs) for a grace period was a critical mistake.
“By this time next week, pressure to revisit that will be even greater. Emergency financial aid may also be necessary.”
Ms Sturgeon shared the thread with her followers, claiming it reflected the “devastating impact” of Britain’s departure from the European Union.
She wrote: “This thread from @scotfoodjames on the real and devastating impact of Brexit on our food exporters is essential reading.”
Brexiteers responded to Ms Sturgeon’s remarks with calls for her to be banned from Twitter.
One user said: “I really think Twitter should do the same with u as they have Donald Trump.”
One user replied: “I’ll second that.”
Another person added: “It’s always an essential read when the narrative agrees with your ranting.”

Other users suggested the First Minister should review her coronavirus lockdown guidelines instead of discussing Brexit.
One commenter said: “Can we focus on, and rectify, the real and devastating effect school closures will have on children and families?
“There is no requirement for councils to provide online teaching. How many parents(mainly mothers) will have to choose between their income and teaching their child?”
Ms Sturgeon has also been facing calls on the social media platform to “resign”.
The leader had already been warned that “the clock is ticking” on her time as SNP leader by a Scottish Conservative councillor.
Tony Miklinski told Express.co.uk that Nicola Sturgeon has had power for more than a decade as part of the SNP Government under her predecessor Alex Salmond and as Scotland’s First Minister.
However, he explained the SNP leader will face challenges from within the party if she continues to changes some key issues in Scotland.
Mr Miklinski said: “She has had the levers of power over all the devolved areas such as education and health for more than a decade. She has tried and failed to make any difference in quality, mostly things have got worse. If she can not turn that around in 13 years, then the issue is who in the SNP wants to replace her.”
