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 need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
