CHANNEL 4 have faced a barrage of criticism online after The National revealed the SNP had been locked out of a flagship Brexit debate on TV tonight.

An inside source claims the broadcaster had pursued Nicola Sturgeon, but editors cut off contact after party bosses questioned who else was to appear on the panel.

If you're wondering who else will be appearing on the show, the answer is obviously ex-leader of UKIP Nigel Farage.

Twitter users are not happy with the decision.

Channel 4 news anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy tried to address the criticism...

...but only raised more questions, such as why wasn't somebody else from the SNP not invited?
