Fed up supermarket customer Ruth Watson started the #Keep Scotland The Brand campaign after repeatedly seeing Scottish products packaged under a Union flag.

Ruth's social media page, Aye, Have a Voice, has grown a large following from other angered Scots who have been sharing their pictures showing the labelling She has complained to supermarkets about the branding, and has been told by one that they have changed the branding to "provide consistency for customers".

Ed Miliband announced a year ago that Labour was in favour of lowering the voting age.

So are the Liberal Democrats, which included votes for 16-year-olds in their 2010 manifesto, but the Conservative Party has historically been opposed.

The enthusiasm with which Scottish teenagers seized their chance to vote in the referendum is proof that the voting age should be lowered to 16 across the UK, Wales’s First Minister argued yesterday.

About 100,000 under-18s – 80 per cent of the eligible total – signed up to vote in the first official political contest in the UK in which the franchise was lowered to 16.Now she hopes supermarkets will reverse this re-branding which Ruth claims is damaging the reputation of Scottish producers.Ruth from Kirriemuir, Angus, said: "I started the hashtag because it seemed like it was time for it."To maintain supply to our customers, we will sometimes stock British produce in our Scottish stores to avoid disappointing customers." Other products that Scottish people have taken offence to being branded as British include haggis, whisky and even the famous painting the Monarch of the Glen.Rab Mackenzie posted a picture of Bell's Whisky covered in red, white and blue labelling and warned: "Remember where your loyalties lie @Bells Whisky #scotref" Sha Wield was angered by an English hotel laying claim to the stag at the centre of the world famous Monarch of the Glen painting."I then realised there was a real response to the movement when the Facebook page reaches quadrupled overnight." And she insists that you do not have to be a supporter of Scottish independence to be against the branding.
