Conservative candidate names Ian Smith as his hero

Echoes of Nigel Hastilow from the Sunday Herald:

DAVID CAMERON has been called on to condemn a Scottish Conservative candidate who praised the racist former leader of Rhodesia and defended Enoch Powell.

Philip Lardner, the party's Westminster candidate in North Ayrshire and Arran, named Ian
Smith, who was regarded a white supremacist, as his political hero. He also said that Powell's far-right warnings about immigration had "in a small way come true".
