Tartan terror nut jailed for hitlist.
Adam Busby admitted sending threatening messages by fax to media outlets including the Daily Record.
Prosecuting counsel Paul McDermott told Dublin's anti- terrorist court they were not proceeding with other charges against Busby.
These included having incendiary devices addressed to Labour leader Tony Blair, the Labour Party headquarters in London and to Shadow Scots Secretary George Robertson.
Detective Inspector Peter Maguire told the court a fax used the codeword "Spear''.
It contained a "hitlist'' of targets including Clydebank MP Tony Worthington and three regional councillors.
It warned of attacks on "English colonists" in Scotland.
Busby, a father-of-two, gave his address as Upper Gardiner Street, in Dublin. He was a former soldier with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
The court ordered that the two-year sentence should date from May last year when Busby, of Glasgow, was taken into custody.
Last night, Shadow Scots Secretary George Robertson said: "It seems remarkably lenient given the nature of his threats.
"He deserves much more."
