During the 2017 General Election campaign, SNP activists in a van pursued and harangued Tory campaigners in Cowie, Scotland. Their foul tirade included comments such as: "Get out of Bannockburn. Get out of Scotland. You're not welcome… Now run away. Get out. This is Tory-free Bannockburn… Every time you turn up on this street, you will be coming after [sic]." The SNP candidate who had been the MP in the relevant constituency, Stirling, was defeated by the Conservative candidate.
