Ukip Accidentally Used The “First World Problems” Woman On Its Website

Oh dear. (Via Redditor Batmankoff92 / Huffington Post).

1. So this image was on the official Ukip Northern Ireland site a couple of days ago.

Let’s just put aside the whole “Boarders” thing and also the whole “Justice and equality for victims terrorism” thing for now.

2. Let’s just try to work out where we’ve seen that sad woman before.

Oh, got it. It’s a really well-known (and somewhat problematic) meme!

You can make your own one here.

5. Anyway, it’s been replaced now.

Good job it’s easy to cover up mistakes like that on the Internet.

6. In other news, a Ukip candidate is refusing to apologise for saying comedian Lenny Henry should “emigrate to a black country”.

UKIP candidate says Lenny Henry should go to the Black Country. Wolverhampton?
