Boris is a fxxxxxx clown, don’t we know it Nicola

Nicola Sturgeon described Boris Johnson as a "clown" during the pandemic, a series of foul-mouthed messages shown to the COVID inquiry has revealed.

The exchange between the former first minister and her chief of staff Liz Lloyd took place on 31 October 2020 as the then prime minister appeared on TV to announce the second national lockdown.

Ms Sturgeon hit out at the UK government's communications, stating: "This is f****** excruciating - their comms are awful.

"His utter incompetence in every sense is now offending me on behalf of politicians everywhere."

Ms Lloyd said she was "offended" on behalf of special advisers everywhere.

Ms Sturgeon replied: "He is a f****** clown."
