Ukip's tweet of campaigners in the wrong place has become a hilarious meme

Ukip's tweet of campaigners in the wrong place has become a hilarious meme

Ukip didn’t have the best weekend: you might have seen their first blunder of tweeting a picture of campaigners claiming they were in Stoke-on-Trent – when they were actually in Bolton.

Pretty awkward, and people were quick to rinse the party for it. Adding insult to injury the picture became an instant meme, as people used the power of Photoshop to transport Ukip’s so-called People’s Army to more exotic locations…all the while claiming to be Stoke-on-Trent.

If this is Stoke than we definitely haven’t visited the whole town.

This place looks slightly more exotic than Stoke, but who are we to judge?

Is this really Stoke-on-Trent?

And then people veered away from Photoshop and things became altogether too silly for words.

Pro-tip: triple-check that your tweets are correct if you want to avoid being made into a meme.
