If you want a good laugh watch the video
The media were all over this with the usual headlines...
A library in Glasgow's southside was put on lockdown for more than an hour as far-right activist Tommy Robinson attempted to confront an MP.
Robinson, who streamed the incident online, told Mr McDonald he was a "coward" as the Glasgow South MP was escorted from the library by police.
This is what the mp said in the Commons using parliamentary privileges - meaning he can say what he wants without the fear of being sued.
surely the fact that a man who is as guilty as he is - on stirring up racial hatred, organising violent, thuggish crimes around the country, setting up the EDL and everything that comes with it - crosses a line.
"And such a person shouldn't be invited to walk amongst us on the parliamentary estate."
Mr McDonald later tweeted his thanks to those who had got in touch with messages of support.
He added: "My staff and I are fine. Thanks must go to @policescotland officers for their professionalism and also @glasgowlife staff at Pollokshaws Library. I’ll keep doing my job on behalf of Southsiders."
Now this is what parts of the media were saying and as usual lying about what actually happened. This is why more and more people do not believe a word the media say.The account of what happened by John Nicolson is embarrassing.An SNP spokesman said: "Far-right activist Tommy Robinson and some of his supporters attempted to disrupt Stewart McDonald MP's constituency surgery today by using intimidating behaviour, which has understandably left those involved feeling shaken by the incident.

Ugly scenes at the @StewartMcDonald Glasgow South constituency surgery today as racist thug Tommy Robinson & a van full of his supporters turned up to harass and intimidate the surgery team. Interesting the profile of those posting abuse about the @policescotland intervention.
Replying to @MrJohnNicolson @StewartMcDonald @policescotland
he was on his own watch the live stream it’s there for all to see, and u wonder why people are turning to the likes of him
Replying to @Donna146167 @StewartMcDonald @policescotland
Nope Donna. That’s untrue. He had a van full of knuckleheids with him. It’s his modus vivendi.
No he didn’t a few people turned up from Glasgow, he had his camera men with him, the people being ignored aren’t exactly all knuckleheads and that comment says it all about why they turned up to support and praise him
You’ll forgive me Donna if I take the Police account more seriously than yours - or anyone who turned up “to praise” the wee racist gnaff.
What has he done or said that is racist john? He went to the library with a microphone and a few questions. Mainly about the label of being called a racist. The word has been weakened by the left. Talk about issues within islam then you are labelled a racist.
You’re a far right activist ‘Harry”. You speak for no one in Glasgow South. And the thugs you defend aren’t welcome.
The people of Glasgow south gave Tommy a great welcome. Look at the response he received. I may be some things, but I'm definelty not a far right activist.
End of conversation
A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: "Around 10.05am on Friday 18 January 2019, officers were asked to assist at Pollokshaws Library in Shawbridge Street, Glasgow.
"Officers attended, however, there were no issues on police arrival and general assistance was provided."
