John Mason, MSP for Glasgow Shettleston, said: “I will not be speaking up for constituents who want lower taxes, Orange marches, keeping Scotland in the UK.”

An SNP MSP has said that he will refuse to represent constituents who oppose Scottish independence.

John Mason also ruled out “speaking up for” people in Glasgow Shettleston who wanted lower taxes or supported the Orange Order’s right to stage marches. He made the comments in an online row about how often religious marches should take place.

Mr Mason, 62, has been a vocal proponent of reducing the number of loyalist parades after clashes on the streets of Glasgow.

“I am happy to represent every constituent on issues like housing and to discuss all sorts of issues with constituents,” he tweeted. “However, I will not be speaking up for constituents who want lower taxes, Orange marches, keeping Scotland in the UK, etc.”
