When Hashtag’s Go Wrong - #WhyImVotingUkip

UKIP members took to Twitter to share their reasons for voting UKIP in the forthcoming European elections but it wasn’t all rosy in the Great British garden of UKIP.

Twitter has a knack of turning a hashtag into a farce. If you don’t believe me, just ask Susan Boyle. That being said I don’t think Nigel Farage expected the launch of #WhyImVotingUkip to be hijacked by sarcastic Tweeters, electronically hurling the proverbial rotten fruit at the villain in the stocks.  Mind you, he’s ignorant to absolutely everything else, so why not this too?

If only Farage had outsourced his IT to India, perhaps none of this would have ever happened.

Despite the barrage of negative media coverage during the UKIP campaign – Farage's recent gaff on LBC radio blamed on his exhaustion, in which he claimed that if a Romanian family moved next door to someone in London they should rightfully be concerned and the steel band refusing to play at the UKIP Carnival to name but a few, polls show UKIP neck and neck with Labour on 27% of the most recent polls. This has them leading the Conservatives by 4%.

With such a large share of the polls it looks as though the old cliché is being proved true now more than ever before – ‘no publicity is bad publicity’.

Voting in the UK for the 2014 European Parliament election will take place on the 22nd of May.
