Susanna Reid hits back after being described as a 'remain voting little rich girl'

By now, most of us have seen Nigel Farage's appearance on Good Morning Britain.

Hours after it became clear that the majority of voters had decided it was best for Britain to leave the EU, the UKIP leader told the show's presenters, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, that it was a mistake for the Leave campaign to have claimed that they would divert the millions given to the EU every week to the NHS, as they couldn't guarantee it.

As you might expect given the difference in opinion surrounding the matter, Reid quickly received plenty of tweets on the matter, one of which labelled her a 'remain voting little rich girl'.

Reid responded, following this with another tweet reminding people that journalists have the right to challenge politicians in the same way that voters are entitled to demand facts.
