Weirdest signs and propaganda attempts

 

So we’ve just about come to the end of the road, as far as the Scottish Independence debacle is concerned, and what a journey it has been. We’ve had some downs (George Galloway getting punched) and some ups (George Galloway getting punched) and we have almost reached the pivotal climax.

If you are anything like me you are probably tired of it all and can’t wait for it to all be over. However there is one thing I will miss and that’s the ridiculous campaigning from both sides. So I, Tommie from Sign Industries, thought I would share some of the weirdest and most wonderful examples of propaganda I have come across whilst online. So enjoy!

Depending on your own personal views this will be hilarious or genuinely unfortunate.

Apparently the Looney tunes are proud nationalists! Who knew?

Comedian Lee Nelson decided to try and appeal to the Scots self-deprecating side with his stunt.

@RealLeeNelson

Is this the actual voting card?

@AlisonMunro19

Understandably this upset quite a lot of pro-independence peoples.

I’m voting yes because he is terrifying.

Salmond has left nothing to chance by remembering to include the French/Scottish section of the vote?

Does this make September 18th our ‘second last chance’?

Separation leads us down a dead end, but devolution is the way forward. I think.

This appears to be severing relations somewhat prematurely.

Apparently the homeless community value independence more than actual money!

And finally this is either a huge attempt at gaining ‘ Yes’ votes or the world’s most elaborate wedding proposal-acceptance ever.
