Ukippers for EU, Real or Parody?

UKIP STAY

Surely this must be a wind up. Twitter has been abuzz with a new UKIP referendum campaign group, although this one is slightly different: it’s campaigning for Britain to stay in the European Union. The UKIP To Stay campaign’s mission statment reads:

“UKIP to Stay is a social media advocacy group, supporting the faction of UKIP that wish for Britain to remain in the European Union. UKIPTS have a vision of a reformed EU which can carry out the policies of democratically elected parties on a fair, transparent, and united basis”.

Gotta be a joke, right?

Well, according to a recent YouGov poll, 28% of UKIP supporters really do want to stay in the EU.

‘UKIP to Stay’ claim they see “eye to eye with most UKIP supporters on everything except for the EU issue”, expanding on this in their FAQs page:

“UKIP has a lot more to offer than mostly Eurosceptic views. The party’s ideas for the economy, immigration, welfare, taxation, and education all fit with what we believe. We simply differ on one issue”.

So is the campaign real or fake? Vote below:

UPDATE: A UKIP spokesman confirms, shockingly, that it is indeed a spoof. Guido readers were right!
