The Scots Nats are engaged in some internal fisty cuffs over whether Castro was a hero of independence or a homophobic “monster“. Comrade Angus MacNeil reckons he was

“a nationalist symbol of regional pride and defiance against the gringo superpower”

SNP MP George Kerevan agrees in bonkers fake newspaper the National:

“There are great lessons to be learned from Castro’s Cuba. He managed to link national identity and national independence with a progressive, socialist project”

But Kerevan has been slapped down by his SNP Westminster colleague Stewart McDonald:

Fellow SNP MP John Nicholson has also laid into Kerevan:

“Castro was a monster. No hero he”
