A RACIST woman sent MSP Patrick Harvie abusive emails about him and ex-first minister Humza Yousaf.

Maureen Urquhart, 62, made the vile comments between March and April this year.

Urquhart stated that she would shoot Harvie if she had a gun.

She referred to the former Scottish government minister as a "bent shot" and Yousaf as "Humza Useless."

Urquhart referred to Scottish Greens co-convener Lorna Slater as a "useless cohort".

Landlord Urquhart also made vile comments towards Muslims in one of the two emails.

Urqhuart pleaded guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.

The offence was stated to have been racially aggravated.

Urquhart, of Danderhall, Midlothian, was fined £500 by Sheriff Shirley McKenna.

The court heard that Urquhart contacted Mr Harvie by email on March 18.

She said: "You are a horrible twisted bent excuse of a man.

"You are so up Humza Useless a***, all that's left is your smelly wee feet.

"Useless wants this law for all the Muslims to say what they like.

"We are not allowed to say anything and before long with you and Useless we will be wearing hijabs and going to the mosque on Friday afternoon.

"If I had a gun, I would shoot you myself. The quicker you lot are gone, the better for us all.

"If Muslims don't like it, they can go back to where they came from."

Urquhart then went on to send a second abusive email on April 10.

It said: "Morning you twisted little gnaff, noticed you have been unusually quiet.

"You and your other useless cohort she man Slater not forgetting Yousaf probably has shares in these companies lining your own pockets.

"I bet Humza wants to bring more of these people in and we are already a saturated country.

"As far as that bent shot Gray bangs on about our country having an open door for refugees.

"Let you, him and Useless take them in their homes and keep them and spend their own money.

"You always pick on private landlords due to your spiteful eviction."
