A new video has emerged - posted by Twitter user @Logicsrock showing Nurse Claire Austin being harassed whilst in a restaurant.
Ms Austin hit the headlines in May of this year when she asked Nicola Sturgeon some searching questions during a live TV debate. Ms Austin, a nurse, admitted to having to resort to using foodbanks in order to survive.
SNP MP Joanna Cherry apologised for her part in supporting rumours about Ms Austin. Ms Austin was accused of being a "Tory Plant" as well as married to a Tory Councillor! Neither of these were true. You can read the previous article here and see SNP MP Joanna Cherry's apology.
Claire Austin is approached and the intimidating questioning begins: "This is a nice, er, dinner, where's your, er, foodbanks that you were going to? You were lying about going to foodbanks - you are lying - this is a nice swanky dinner in a posh Edinburgh restaurant in St Andrews Square and this woman lied on Question Time. Aye you're lying you're Tory scum. Tory scum".
It goes without saying that the tweet has now been deleted. Here's a copy of it.
