Martin Lewis hits back as he's branded a 'b****nd' over Scottish referendum poll question

While those who lived in Scotland and said it shouldn’t be independent made up 10%.It was a near tie for those living in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, with both yes and no votes at 34%.Some Twitter users were outraged by the idea that the Money Saving Expert would ask people “not living in Scotland” for their opinion on the matter.@Markconner64 wrote: “Why would you ask people not staying in Scotland their opinion? Butt out b****nd.”Martin responded saying it obviously wasn’t an “official referendum”.He wrote: “Cos its just my daily twitter poll, not an official referendum. If it helps put ur mind at rest, don't worry it's not binding. (sic)“Ps I've also asked UK folk questions like who they'd as US president & whether pineapple should be allowed on pizza.They weren't binding either (sadly).”It comes as Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is trying to set another date for Scots to vote for the chance for their country's independence and is currently asking the UK's top court whether the country has the ability to hold a referendum without their permission.Following his reply, Twitter users rushed to Martin’s defence.@Wastefighter pointed out some hypocrisy in the social media user’s profile.He said: “You literally have a Ukraine flag in your profile, so you clearly have an opinion on a Country you don't live in.”They added: “It is possible to have polite discussion, you might find it actually strengthens the independent vote.”@Clairerhiannon wrote: “Martin you have no idea how bitter the whole independence question is in Scotland.
