SCOTTISH Labour have been urged to suspend a candidate who liked and shared "dozens and dozens" of "racist" posts on social media.

Wilma Brown, who is running in the Cowdenbeath and Kirkcaldy constituency, has been accused of spreading “conspiracy nonsense” – including posts claiming that Scottish Government aid to Gaza was going to Hamas, and the debunked viral claim that Humza Yousaf said there are “too many white people in Scotland”.

Last month, Brown also liked a racist post telling 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”.

Brown deleted her Twitter/X account after The National reported on the posts.

Now, SNP depute leader Keith Brown has said both Scottish Labour chief Anas Sarwar and Keir Starmer must take action.

"The appalling tweets endorsed by the Labour Party candidate for Cowdenbeath and Kirkcaldy are deeply offensive, racist and completely unacceptable," he said.

"Wilma Brown is clearly unfit to be a candidate at the General Election. Sir Keir Starmer must sack her immediately and explain why she was ever selected given her long and very public history of endorsing deeply offensive comments.

"This is a candidate who Keir Starmer has personally endorsed and visited to campaign alongside. He must explain how this was allowed to happen."

It has also emerged Brown has liked and shared posts suggesting Holyrood should be abolished

Just days ago, she liked a post by The Majority that featured the hashtag #AbolishHolyrood.

She also liked a tweet from ScotNatWatch in March that said: “Holyrood should be brought under special measures by the British Government. It’s a loose cannon.”
