Almost 1 million SNP voters are neo-fascists says Labour MP Ian ‘the deerhunter’ Davidson, go get your pal to do your decorating on taxpayer’s money!

Dear All

I live within the Glasgow South West area, the MP for the area is Ian ‘the deerhunter’ Davidson.

He is a Labour MP and a bam.

At the last Westminster election, he stood on the stage of the SECC and said:

“As us Pollokonians say’.

Which is a surprise because he has never lived in Pollok in his entire life; he stays in the trendy west end of Glasgow.

Davidson is the chairman of the Commons Scottish Affairs Select Committee at Westminster.

And with his customary big mouth he has sparked fury by describing the SNP Party as bunch of "neo-fascists".

Labour MP Ian Davidson used the term during a debate on the Scotland Bill, which has cleared the Commons.

In a bizarre rant, he attacked the "narrow, neo-fascism of the nationalists" only to be immediately condemned by SNP MPs who reacted angrily in the Commons chamber.

He told MPs:

"I think we have got to be clear about what the verdict of the Scottish people was. Fifty per cent of people in Scotland did not vote in the election. Of those who did vote, less than half voted for separation”.


"We must remember that there were more people voted for Gordon Brown as prime minister than voted for Alex Salmond to be First Minister. There is clearly a situation where not everything the SNP proposed was accepted because, remember, Alex Salmond called quite clearly for a Yes vote in the AV referendum and was roundly defeated."

As SNP MPs heckled him, Mr Davidson said:

"I notice the way in which efforts have been made to shout me down. That's what's happened traditionally in Scotland when people challenge the nationalists. Those of us who want to challenge the narrow, neo-fascism of the nationalists..."

Stewart Hosie MP (Dundee E) immediately raised a point of order with Commons Speaker John Bercow, complaining:

"That description is absurd and offensive and wrong in every single regard."

Only to find that Bercow wasn’t interested in putting down that slur!

Mr Bercow said:

"My powers do not extend to the covering or reputation of nonsense."

Mr Davidson (Glasgow SW) then said:

"Is it not neo-fascist to attempt to shout down speakers that you disagree with?"

The episode is another example of how angry the British Labour Party in Scotland has become and the nasty reaction to their Holyrood extermination at the hands of the voters.

People vote SNP because the SNP is a public service party.

The Labour Party is a party of the rich.

Yours sincerely

Bitter irony that holyrood passed a bill on sectarianism as the real arena for sectarianism is poltics where snp and labour simply hate each other to an extent that precludes seeing the other side as fellow human beings. This is the real problem Davqisons comment is merely a symptom
