Your MP probably has gotten that from US right-wingers. But the claim that 
Hitler
was a socialist, seem to me, to be a slightly vulgarized version of the 
claim made
by Friedrich Hayek, in his book The Road to Serfdom, that National Socialism
and Fascism were not reactions to the rise of socialism but rather their 
culmination.
