Jayda Fransen is set to have a very tense meeting with her 50 friends and family after she secured just 46 votes in the Glasgow Southside, James Felton tweeted shortly after her humiliating defeat.
The former Britain First deputy leader saw her attempt to become an MSP in Glasgow end in total failure just hours after she confronted Nicola Sturgeon while out campaigning.
The SNP leader called her a “fascist and a racist” in the stand off, and later spoke out about the incident after election results were announced.
She said: “Yesterday the constituency was targeted by far-right thugs, the far-right thug that led that confrontation got 46 votes, and I am proud that once again that Glasgow Southside has shown the racists and the fascists that they are not welcome in Glasgow Southside, they are not welcome in Glasgow and they are not welcome anywhere in Scotland.
“And let that be a note of unity.”
People on social media were quick to pour scorn on the paltry result, with James Felton saying she is about to have a “very tense meeting with her 50 family and friends”.

Others have been sharing footage of the result announcement, with audible chuckles heard when Fransen’s results were read out:
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
