17. Hmmm?


Hmmmm.

That article's title has caught me out, I must say... That looks to me more like a list of people who were for and against the concept of Scottish independence, I recognise the two sides well, but I don't think I'd have described anyone on either list as being an "endorsement" and certainly didn't see the term used in any official sense in the UK media, nor the bits of social media that I was looking at at the time. "Supporter" or "critic" is what you would be most likely to see, I think.

The reason I'm asking is that people seem to be curating lists of endorsements for Hillary and I didn't really know why or what it meant. I don't recall anyone doing anything similar over here and wondered if endorsement lists were a more recognised phenomenon in the States and/or had any official or semi-official standing in the eyes of the populace as a means of understanding the candidate/issue.
