SENIOR UKIP OFFICIALS HAVE REACTED WITH ANGER TO A RULING BY THE EUROPEAN UNION SIGNAGE COMMITTEE THAT THE ICONIC UKIP LOGO MUST CHANGE TO AN EU APPROVED ONE, AT LEAST UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE UNITED KINGDOM FINALLY LEAVES THE EU.
Frau Professor Doktor Iva Von Buttplugg, the controversial EU spokesperson who previously caused a storm of protest across Great Britain with her statement in January that the EU planned to ban Greenwich Mean Time, made the announcement on Saturday, as UKIP were closing their annual conference in Bournemouth. Ex-leader, Nigel Farage, has not been seen since he went ‘skinny-dipping’ with Arron Banks and so could not be reached for comment.
Frau Buttplugg said, “The current UKIP logo clearly incorporates a British Pound symbol whilst at the same time it remains a fact that UKIP is a European Political Party, sitting in the European Parliament and of the twenty-eight countries currently having membership of the EU, only Britain uses the Pound. Most others use the hugely successful Euro and for that reason, if UKIP wish to continue to use a monetary symbol on their logo, EU rules dictate that the symbol used must be a Euro. Furthermore,” the bureaucrat added, “whereas we have no issue with the yellow used in the logo, the purple must be replaced with EU blue in order to bring UKIP’s new logo completely into line with EU Commission rules.”
Commenting on the ruling a senior member of the Lisa4Leader campaign described the proposed new logo as ‘proper minging’. The campaign team, who were out in force on the pier and promenade, wearing Kiss Lisa Quick hats and knotted handkerchiefs were busy campaigning for a second leadership vote following the failure of their candidate to win by a ‘very slim margin of only about four thousand votes’.
“After all,” said their self-appointed spokesman, “if it’s good enough for Tim Farron (aged 13¾) , then it should be good enough for us.”
That’s politics for you…
