But people have been quick to attack him.

This is absolutely desperate. Embarrassing. Toe-curling. Cringe-worthy. Childish. http://t.co/y5L9LR1of2 - Lloyd Quinan - Clown. #NoThanks

"If you vote No, and you leave them with more of the same, then you’re a bad parent." Former SNP MSP Lloyd Quinan. How dare he? #indyref

That's probably not quite the impression he was looking to make.

Hope @YesEastLothian will condemn former MSP Lloyd Quinan at their meeting in North Berwick saying you are a bad parent if you vote No
