DONCASTER – UKIP's party conference is like nothing else. So BuzzFeed News set out to find as many bizarre things within the first 30 minutes of arriving at the conference as we could. Think of it as "Nigel's supermarket sweep".

"There are no racists inside or outside this closet." A true labour of love.

(UPDATE: Everyone loved this so much BuzzFeed News went and interviewed the owner.)

23. This picture of Sharleen Spiteri from Texas on the wall, watching over things.

UPDATE: This picture previously showed Texas' former bassist. He has been in touch asked for his face to be removed from the article as he is "deeply disturbed to see my face associated with UKIP in any way shape or form".

BuzzFeed News is happy to blur his face from this photo and make it clear that this photo of Sharleen Spiteri and the band Texas is merely hanging on the wall of the venue where UKIP conference is being held. There is no indication that Texas are in any way associated with UKIP's policies, nor any sign that Nigel Farage's party is attempting to latch on to the popularity of the "Summer Son" hitmakers.

Because you can say what you want about UKIP but they won't change their mind on this matter.
