And people were pretty angry at the message.

A vote for an independent Scotland means hating your children. How much worse can the #bettertogether campaign get?

And they started using the words of the Better Together campaign against itself.

@UK_Together I dearly love my family, and will vote YES. Let's get kids in Scotland out of poverty.

I can't stand half my family and only love those parts of Scotland within a 50ft radius of a Starbucks. But that won't influence how I vote.

And after the debacle of the campaign's last advert, which very quickly turned into a meme (#PatronisingBTLady), supporters of independence started to mock up their own adverts.
