The EU Referendum hasn’t been a shining example of British democracy at its finest. Facts have been made second to opinion, both camps have focused on scaremongering and divisive tactics. The whole thing is likely to leave a fairly bitter mood in its wake. But just when you thought things could hit no lower ebb, the Leave and Remain camps take their campaigns to the bedroom – with branded condoms.
Both Students for Britain (a pro-Brexit group linked to Vote Leave) and Students for Europe (a pro-Remain group linked to Britain Stronger in Europe), are distributing branded condoms around UK campuses in an effort to grab those last few votes ahead of polling day.

The condoms have at least given a fairly shattered and miffed electorate a chance to have a little giggle, since they first showed up in February.

According to the majority of polls, the vote is still looking pretty much even going into the vote on Thursday. Perhaps it’s worth keeping a few behind in case of bad news?

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
