No doubt this will be an another huge own goal for the "Better Together" campaign in Scotland and comes just one day after the SNP revealed that David Camerons recent trip to Scotland coincided with 109 new members for the only party in the UK to have been elected with a majority. And hopefully this will be another nail in the coffin of this rag, just as the WesternFails front page attacking the Welsh language caused an online backlash that has left the paper with a readership of just 1 in 118 people. Although I suspect it's fallen even more but it'll be hard to work out as they've pulled the plug on their ABC circulation monitoring.

So this is why I have signed this petition and urge others to do so. This petition is actually clever, as it not only records that you have declared that the image is not acceptable but it also emails the Independent Press Complaints Commission and the Editor of The Scotsman. This kind of journalism needs to be stamped out. And if we down here can help the Scottish stamp it out now, then the English owned rags down here might think twice before printing something similar when we have our opportunity for self determination.
Edit - If you receive a server connection error then it's because the petition site was getting so much traffic from the various facebook and twitter accounts posting it that it crashed. Try again later.
