Yes Campaign in Scotland not quite as popular as they'd like you to think...

Oh dear. More woe from the ‘Yes for Scotland ‘ Campaign.

Their Twitter biography is rather peculiar. Here it is.

Why the health warning? Well it’s because the campaign has been displaying the pictures of ‘supporters’ of the Yes campaign who, it turns out, are not supporters. In fact – they are active opponents of Scottish Independence.

As the wonderful Caron Lindsay, who’s face adorned the front page of the Yes campaign website on Tuesday, put it...

“I mean, I follow lots of people on Twitter that I don’t agree with: Mitt Romney, Larry the Downing Street Cat,  Ed Miliband…..I even follow some people I absolutely can’t stand. That’ll be you, Lewis Hamilton and Daily Mail. Following on Twitter should never be taken as an indication of support.”

And I imagine the slightly odd Twitter biography that is now appearing means they can’t alter the website easily to stop it posting Twitter avatars. Or else they really don’t want their opponents to find out what they are saying, and are trying to stop them following on Twitter.

But that can’t be right. Can it?

  1. Thank you. That was only added to their Twitter profile after we realised what was going on....
