The Best Twitter Responses To #UKdividend

Danny Alexander of the UK Treasury today announced that everyone in Scotland would be enjoying a £1,400 a year dividend if Scotland decides to stay in the UK. Danny's maths have been embarrassingly called into question after Professor Dunleavy from the London School of Economics who wrote the report that Danny based his sums on denounced the gross manipulation of his report. The Treasury has nonetheless battled on and tried to get a new hashtag trending on Twitter. Unfortunately for them it has backfired spectacularly. Here's some of the best responses so far.
