Yesterday Political Scrapbook reported on how people were playing a prank on UKIP by reserving tickets to their event in Stoke.
It was the first major event for UKIP in Stoke for the upcoming by-election.
And by most standards it was a bit of a disaster.
A screenshot Political Scrapbook took from UKIP’s live-stream of the event shows there were plenty of empty seats.
The screenshot also doesn’t show empty seats further back in the hall. You can see plenty of them on the side.
One commenter on the UKIP Facebook feed wrote:
Not much of a crowd, is that it!
Did they all come in a bus from outside the area?
The UKIP disaster came after they advertised their event online, allowing anyone to reserve the free tickets.
That offer was naturally taken up by plenty of lefties who had no intention of turning up.
UKIP shared a pic of the event from a very narrow angle. Wonder why
