The Internet’s Funniest Responses To The Scottish Independence Debate

Scotland decides. People make jokes.

It’s the most exciting night of the year. It’s the STV Scottish independence debate between Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling.

Rules were set out.

Obviously there was a lot of speculation as to who would win this bloody battle.

Unfortunately, STV’s online stream broke so no one outside Scotland could see anything.

But luckily they brought in the right people to sort it out.

Lots of people prepared their drinking games.

(Everyone who played got very drunk.)

The real battle was happening in the world of creased shirts.

There was a bit where Alastair Darling was a bit reluctant to give a yes or no answer.

There was quite a lot of consideration of what currency Scotland would use.

There were an awful lot of anecdotes.

Some of them were about the proliferation of Scottish pandas and the absence of Scottish Tory MPs.

And there was a lot of talk of Plans A, B, C, and D.

Of course, there’s no doubt that a young Alistair Darling might have done better.

Some people had views about the portrayal of the respective campaign leaders, which isn’t all that nice.

There were some people who were very bothered about language.

People got excited about the finale.

And then it was all over, with some incredibly highbrow responses from supporters of both sides.
