Socialist - super Scot? (6)


I believe the answer is:


'socialist' is the definition.
(Fabian is an example)

'super scot?' is the wordplay.
'super' becomes 'fab'.
'scot?' becomes 'ian'.

(Other definitions for fabian that I've seen before include "British socialist" , "Member of a socialist society, founded 1884" , "one joining 10 27 21 [INDEPENDENT LABOUR PARTY] ?" , "Sainted pope" , "who belongs to a left-wing society" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
