Harry Potter author in online spat after challenging journalist's claim that 'every trace of ethnic nationalism was expunged from party in 1970s':
JK Rowling is at the centre of a new online row after challenging the claim that there is no longer any anti-English sentiment in the SNP.The Harry Potter author caused a Twitter spat after questioning a statement by a journalist that “every trace of ethnic nationalism was expunged from the party in the 1970s”.
The hugely successful writer, who has been abused repeatedly by so-called “cybernat” trolls for donating £1 million to the Better Together campaign during the referendum, tweeted that it was “quite a claim”.
She asked the writer, Iain Macwhirter, a political commentator for The Herald, a question about the national make-up of those polled:
