A SCOTTISH Labour candidate who was found to have shared "dozens" of "racist and Islamophobic" tweets has now deleted her account.

Wilma Brown, who is Labour's candidate in Cowdenbeath and Kirkcaldy, has been accused of spreading “conspiracy nonsense” by a resident of the area, Adam le Grice, who has compiled a thread of offensive posts she has liked and retweeted on Twitter/X.

But just an hour after The National posted a story about the tweets, it has been discovered she has removed her Twitter/X account.

Among the tweets she shared, Brown spread serious misinformation claiming money sent to Gaza by the Scottish Government was for Hamas.

One post she shared said Yousaf “meets with Hamas and gives them £1/2 million of OUR money. These religious zealots shouldn’t be anywhere near our government".

Other posts she shared spouted conspiracy theories suggesting Yousaf’s family getting out of Gaza was not “a coincidence”.   

Last month, she also liked a racist post that told an Indian man who was expressing his love for England and its flag “you will NEVER be an Englishman” and “it is not your flag”.

Adam le Grice has insisted the party must “expel” her and find another candidate.

Despite approaching Brown personally, The National is yet to receive any comment from her. Scottish Labour have also been approached for comment.

Brown has also been found to have liked posts claiming trans broadcaster India Willoughby “incited trans activists” to “harass” TV judge Robert Rinder as well as tweets suggesting JK Rowling had “slain” the trans movement.

It comes after Scottish Labour suspended Glasgow councillor Audrey Dempsey, who is at the centre of a storm over her offensive social media posts and her intense focus on “anti-white racism”, which she claims is on the rise.
