PM's tweet produces Manx frowns

A tweet by the UK prime minister in the run-up to Scotland's independence vote has been countered by the Manx government.

The post from Number Ten includes a map which shows the Isle of Man as part of the United Kingdom and a message from David Cameron saying: 'By staying united we have much more to share and much more to gain'.

A tweet from the Manx government asks for the map to be corrected - as the Isle of Man is not part of the UK.

That post, re-tweeted 300 times, led to a Twitter conversation about the Island's independent status and the Manx pound.

Scots go to the polls on 18th September.
