talkRADIO presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer slated European Council president Donald Tusk in her morning monologue, branding him an "arrogant diplomat".

Referencing comments made by Tusk yesterday, Hartley-Brewer said: "Instead they opt for insulting our politicians, insulting our vote leave voters, insulting the very people who pay for their huge salaries, their huge pensions and their huge perks."

Speaking in Brussels, the European Council president condemned those who "promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it", adding that there was a "special place in hell" for them.



Despite her fierce opposition to his remarks, she added that she was "not angry", and wanted to "thank" the EU official.

"I'm not angry with Donald Tusk or his henchmen. I want to thank Donald Tusk," she said. "I want to thank you for reminding me and 17.4 million others exactly why we wanted to leave your corrupt, arrogant feather-nesting little club."

Turning Tusk's comments on their head, she added that the EU was a "special place in hell for arrogant diplomats".

"In 50 days' time we'll be delighted to say goodbye and leave you in your little, special place in hell for arrogant diplomats, paid for by our taxes."
