I had to check the OP was from NewsThump:

Tories plot Union flag blitz in Scottish towns to stop independence

SCOTTISH playparks could be plastered with Union flags in an attempt to quell support for independence.

British branding could also be placed on community centres in towns and villages under the UK Government’s plans to prevent a Yes vote.

Spearheaded by Scottish Secretary Alister Jack, the measures will see Holyrood bypassed as Westminster hands money directly to councils and other local bodies in Scotland. But the SNP have warned the promises will amount to real-terms cuts, not cash boosts.

The funding is expected to go towards community centres, local parks, shared spaces projects and other schemes "that make an obvious impact on regenerating a local community", the Telegraph has reported.

"We want people in Scotland to see where the butter comes from," one Cabinet minister told the paper.
