A Muslim convert from Willesden threatened to bomb an MP’s house and “show her what it’s like to murder innocents” after she voted in favour of Syria air strikes.
Craig Wallace, 23, of Teignmouth Road, launched a tirade of abuse on Facebook at Tory MP Charlotte Leslie, who represents Bristol North West, on December 3, the day after MPs voted to authorise the air strikes.
Today, Hendon Magistrates’ Court heard he wrote: “I’m going to smash her windows then drop a bomb on her house while she’s tucked up in bed.
“I’m going to find her and show her what it’s like to murder innocents. You dirty pig-f****** w**e.”
Ms Leslie’s father saw the comments online and reported them to police.

Three weeks after he was released he posted the messages on a thread of comments on the UK Truth Movement Facebook page.
Wallace claimed he was “venting his anger” and had not had any sleep because he had been “protesting for two or three days”.
He pleaded guilty to sending threatening communications and was remanded in custody.
He will be sentenced on December 30.
