The comment was followed by a sea of remarks from within her own party and beyond, condemning the shameful tweet.

Stephen Kerr, Scottish Conservative chief whip, said: “The mask has again slipped from the SNP and this is another example of their toxic obsession with division.

“This is abhorrent language from one of the SNP’s most prominent campaigners and a 2021 election candidate, not to mention chair of Glasgow City Council’s education committee.”

Councillor for Linn ward, Euan Blockley, called the comments “Absolutely shameful and pathetic.”

He added: “Glasgow deserves better than narrow minded nationalists.”

Another Councillor, Joanne Stewart, who represents Tilehurst, said: “Disappointing to see hate speech from an SNP Councillor in Scotland.

“Especially when we’re trying to encourage more women to stand as candidates, with disgusting behaviour like this, why would you want to??

“Can’t tag her as she’s a coward and deleted her account.”

Speaking through the SNP Press Office she said: “I have now deleted this tweet about the UK’s results in the Eurovision Song Contest, and apologise for any offence caused.”
