Kermit the Frog is against Scottish Independence
He added that Miss Piggy has designs on becoming Queen of Scotland
Asked in an interview in the latest Big Issue whether he supported the union, the green sage and Muppets star said: “Absolutely”.
He added that Miss Piggy has set her sights on replacing Queen Elizabeth as the monarch, despite SNP justice minister Kenny MacAskill’s suggestion that Scots could vote to become a republic following a 'Yes' vote win.
“I understand that Miss Piggy is willing to serve as Queen of Scotland if there is a split. So you may want to guard your castles,” he said.
Asked if David Cameron was pleased to see Kermit lend his support to the Better Together campaign, the Prime Minister's official spokesman told the Huffington Post: “Are you suggesting someone's been pulling strings?”
Kermit’s bid to keep Scotland in the UK follows Eddie Izzard’s 'Scotland, Please Don’t Go' initiative, and Tory MP Rory Stewart’s call for 100,000 Britons to hug Scotland into staying in the union by forming a coast-to-coast human chain along Hadrian’s wall this summer.
How persuasive the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ campaigns are will become clear in September, when Scots will take to the polls for the Scottish Independence referendum.
