Trinny and Susannah Just Say Naw
Occasionally you wonder, what great stunts or ideas the campaigns have up their sleeves? If there’s a gnawing doubt in your mind dear Yes campaigner that Better Together have some great ideas coming down the line, rest your worries.
Take a seat and enjoy the movie.
If you need a spring in your step this fine morning then realise that the two best ideas the NO campaign have come up with are to pay £1000 to walk round some stones with Rory the Tory (who apparently walks very well on foot) or to be lectured to by Trinny and Susannah.
That’s unfair, there’s actually a stellar lineup of SLEBS here, including a persuasive return for John Barrowman (last seen here).
There’s the ever-present Eddie Izzard, hard man Ross Kemp, Baldrick, and, er, some other folks we didn’t recognise. There’s one Scot in amongst them – Richard Wilson – so big congratulations to BT, that will be a winner with the youth vote. If anyone can help fill in who they all are we’d be grateful and if anyone can de-code the squealing incoherent car-crash of a message, that too would help. This is a campaign that oscillates between dark smear and lite entertainment, with a re-tread of banalities and pleading from fashion advisers about the Olympics and “Team Gee Bee”.
Is that it? Is that really it? Apparently so.
I don’t now what’s more offensive, the idea that we should continue the union because Ross Kemp experienced ‘camaraderie’ in Afghanistan (because of the ‘situation we were in’ – hmmm best not explore that particular travesty too deeply) or the nice woman who doesn’t want to lose “some amazing theatres and fantastic festivals”.
