Before this morning, Gisela Allen was just Ukip's candidate for a coucnil seat in Garscadden/Scotstounhill. Now, thanks to comments on the death penalty and working mums, she's an Internet sensation.

The Clydebank Post asked local candidates to set out their proposals should they be elected to seats in the area, ahead of the upcoming council elections.

Gisela Allen set out her beliefs - stressing they were not party policy - and they were swiftly picked up on social media.

Allen wants the death penalty brought back, but with the guillotine instead of hanging.

She also said mums should stay at home to look after babies, rather than return to the workplace. She wants golf courses abolished and a referendum on assisted dying.
