Great Scott, why would you push her out of the country?

Bra magnate Michelle Mone has fled her native Scotland, claiming she’s been mercilessly bullied over her support of keeping the country in the United Kingdom.

“There is only so much negativity a person can take and, now I’ve moved out of Scotland, I feel as if a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders,” the Ultimo founder Mone wrote in the Mail on Sunday.

“It’s a free world and people are entitled to give their opinion, but the abuse I have received is typical of the new mood in Scotland where success is not to be applauded any more, but to be attacked.”

In last fall’s referendum on Scottish independence, Mone supported remaining part of the United Kingdom. A majority of her fellow Scots agreed, voting, 55-44, to stay in the UK.

Despite that defeat, nationalists proponents – through their Scottish National Party – have gained a strong foothold. They swept to huge victories in UK parliamentary elections earlier this month.

Mone, 43, called out the SNP for not reigning in radical supporters.

“I was called a ‘c—’, a ‘cow’, a ‘slut’, as well as being told, ‘I’m going to get it’ and ‘We’ll come and get you.’ I was also told they were ‘going to throw me across the border,’ ” Mone wrote.
