MARTIN Compston slammed ‘conservative Twitter bots’ as he fought back after being criticized for supporting the SNP

The Line of Duty actor, 36, urged voters to back Nicola Sturgeon’s party with both votes at an online rally yesterday

He was slammed by angry trade unionists who claimed he was a hypocrite for supporting the Nats when he often lived in the United States

But the Greenock-born actor – who owns a house in the town of Inverclyde – fought back after receiving a leaflet urging him to vote Conservative

The Conservatives’ call came to him by Party Leader Douglas Ross and Holyrood Leader Ruth Davidson

But Compston said they could do the ‘environment’ a favor if they insisted so badly that he doesn’t live in Scotland

The actor wrote: “I see Twitter Scottish Tory and their rabid bots that an actor would voice an opinion

“In that case, could you do me, the postman and the environment a favor and stop sending me material asking for my vote”

Compston appeared at SNP’s Get Out the Vote virtual rally last night hours before the Line of Duty finale aired

He was joined by several famous Nats supporters, including actor Brian Cox and police writer Val McDermid

“The only way to make sure we re-elect Nicola Sturgeon as Prime Minister is to #BothVotesSNP Make sure you and all your friends get out to vote”

He said: “I think even people who don’t like Nicola Sturgeon, for whatever reason, had to admit that she was by far the most competent ruler of these islands in the face of this crisis.

“And she is the one who, in my opinion, is best placed to help us out of this

“So I really think we are now in a situation where we need the best people, the most competent people, in charge of Scotland To make sure we come out of a better place than we entered “

He added: “Everyone has a right to make up their minds Whether they are southern politicians or amazing charming artists who have moved abroad for whatever reason

“Myself, I have lived all over the world This is the beauty of freedom of expression Everyone has the right to an opinion But what counts are the votes”
