      This is a stitch up.

      Whilst I wouldn’t put it past their levels of ineptitude, this must surely be a wind up.

      ( deeply hoping it’s not) 🙂 

    2. Bill Fraser says:

      Brilliant, absolutely love it 😀

    3. MajorBloodnok says:

      Whoops!

    4. Elizabeth says:

      ha ha ha brilliant!

    5. Marcia says:

      Took me a few seconds before the penny dropped!

    6. Morag says:

      OK.  Penny finally dropped.  (I’m a bit slow on the uptake….)

      Bwahahahaha!  Please tell me that’s real?  (Though I suppose it’s just a joke,)

    7. Ysabelle says:

      ‘You cock’?

      Seriously, is this a joke? If so,

      KOKUP 

    8. Morag says:

      Ysabelle, I think you’re supposed to leave it for people to figure out for themselves!

    9. Ysabelle says:

      That should read, ‘If not,

      KOKUP’

      #TypographersForIndependence.

    11. Ysabelle says:

      Morag,

      Sorry! But I’d still like to know if it’s for real or not! 

    12. naebd says:

      Obviously not.

    13. Richie says:

      I don’t think this is a joke. I seem to remember something like this on the better together site a while back. Of course I could be horribly wrong. I’ll have a wee look through the web and find out.
      Can you confirm it one way or another Stu? 

    14. Jeannie says:

      Oh…that’s good!

    15. Raineach says:

      Sadly, as actually seen at Ibrox, tho’ the double entendre had not occured to me before

    16. Keith B says:

      No spoof. Ladies, why not try and win a t-shirt that says what you really think about that special someone;

    17. Cameron B says:

       
      The production is so shoddy that it is obviously a spoof.

    18. Richie says:

      Shit, sorry for that messy link Stu. I tried to edit it but it wouldn’t work. It’s similar to Keith B’s post, so none taken if you delete it  🙂

    19. mogabee says:

      Bless ’em…… they aren’t that bright!

    20. Cameron B says:

       
       
      The t-shirts are genuine, but the pic above has been fiddled with. The kerning, or space between the U and the K, has been increased. The background fill (white) is also incomplete. Sorry to be a spoil sport, but either I’m correct or someone in the BT camp will surely be made to stand in the naughty corner for a very long time. Possibly until 2014.

    21. cath says:

      Took a moment for the penny to drop here too but love it. The UKOK slogan is certainly a real BT one. I’m guessing the “thinking of voting no” has been photoshopped on?

    22. Stewart Bremner says:

      @Richie
      I had no idea that on social photo sharing site Blipfoto, the No people had/have a journal. And look – the comments are switched off! It’s almost as if they don’t want to have a conversation.

    23. scottish_skier says:

      I rather liked this flashy [Better Together] number.

      Got the whole red, white and blue thing going for it too! 

    24. Gayle says:

      hahahahaha priceless.

      Man alive, it’s hard to be a satirist these days.

    26. Cameron B says:

       
      I did say sorry for being a spoil sport. 🙂

    27. Luigi says:

      Another BT Kok-up. Classic.

    28. ianbrotherhood says:

      Don’t know why (maybe the colours) but it reminds me of seeing a guy in the shopping mall wearing an enormous Rangers top with ‘We Don’t Do Walking Away’ embossed in the proper lettering – must’ve cost a fortune. But it was on the back of the shirt, so the only time anyone would ever see it? When he was walking away.

    29. Matt says:

      “Man alive, it’s hard to be a satirist these days.”

      Bit of Poe’s Law in action there.

    30. Davy says:

      Its ahm, its kind of ?, its an interesting effort.

      (what a bunch of dunderheads.)

    31. TYRAN says:

      U DARLING

    32. Jeannie says:

      @KeithB
      I never thought I’d be looking forward so much to seeing people running around in Better Together t-shirts. That’s priceless.

    33. Aucheorn says:

      From the No site

      Better Together are offering our supporters the chance to win one of 50 limited edition UKOK T-shirts.
       
      After that just email us at info [at] bettertogether [dot] net to be entered in to the draw for a fabulous UKOK T-Shirt

    34. AnneDon says:

      Normally, the UK is over the OK, so I hadn’t noticed the comic possibilities. Nice, though!

    35. cath says:

      “Limited edition of 50” Is that the number of their actual supporters?

    36. Matt says:

      So after months of waiting, we finally have it – the positive case for the Union!

      It’s not a particularly enthusiastic case, but it is a positive case nonetheless: The UK is okay. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible either, it’s just okay. And it’s £1 a year cheaper, which is also okay.

    37. Real or not its still funny,needs sharing give everybody a laugh,and it took me a few minutes to get it.

    38. Jeannie says:

      @Matt
      Love it!

    39. TYRAN says:

      “How flattering. The British Tourism Authority’s new UKOK campaign uses exactly the same slogan that won our Rebranding Britain competition last May.”

      “How extraordinary. But it could just go to show that there’s not too many ideas out there.” (Jan 2002)

    40. Holebender says:

      Oh dear, so it’s not even an original logo, it’s a rip off of a ripped off logo!

    41. Cameron B says:

       
      That is pretty much standard practice within the graphic design community. Not often as blatant as this example, but it should come as no surprise given the BT unwillingness to play by the EC’s rules and their propensity to tell the voting public whatever whapers they deem appropriate to their scare agenda.

    42. Holebender says:

      Didn’t they also rip off the music for their first video? Seems like a lot of copyright infringements going on. Is that what they mean by better together?
