Veterinary surgeon silences Nigel Farage

Maidstone-based Daniella Dos Santos MRCVS has become quite possibly the first person to render Nigel Farage utterly speechless whilst at the same time drawing welcome attention to the shortfall in veterinary surgeons caused by Brexit.

Daniella, a small animal and exotics vet who works at Parkvets in Kent and also chairs the BVA Ethics and Welfare Advisory Panel, phoned in to Nigel Farage's LBC radio show to point out, amongst other things, a predicted 300% shortfall in veterinary surgeons when we leave the EU.

A video of the skirmish went viral on Twitter, viewed 438,000 times at the time of writing. You can see the full video of the discussion below (starts at 1:22.08)
