Election campaign 2015[edit | edit source]
It claims credit for undermining the credibility of Nigel Farage with a series of campaign pledges that are popularly regarded as absurd. It has been described as the weirdest party, while Vice News UK described its members as "heroin-loving piss-takers". In February 2015 it bought the web address www.ukipthanet.co.uk and redirected users to the Al-Zebab homepage where visitors were told to "renounce [their] white skin" and shown a YouTube video of their party political broadcast. It also claims to have scared Farage away from attending any public hustings events.
