The only tweet you need to read after Nigel Farage ‘hard-Brexit’ condoms go on sale
I’m at Ukip conference, where of course you can buy Nigel Farage condoms.
“For when you have a hard Brexit”

Following the revelation, Labour MP David Lammy said:
It's usually the condom on the ?? not the other way round.https://t.co/PK8TI5QBNT

The weirdest stuff at the UKIP conference
Farage condoms are not the only troubling sight at the UKIP conference. The following looks remarkably like homophobic literature dressed up as ‘health concerns’:

And anyone thinking that would be right. The book tackles topics such as “why homosexuality is a public health issue”, and “the ‘born gay’ myth”.
It doesn’t get any more woke looking at UKIP’s policy agenda. Leader Gerard Batten has suggested Muslim-only prisons and security screenings, among other policies against what he calls the “death cult” of Islam.
Meanwhile, Twitter user TechnicallyRon mocked-up a UKIP conference schedule:

UKIP seems to be fading more and more into the fringes. The party is desperate to remain relevant. But it’s unlikely Farage condoms are going to help revive UKIP… or anyone’s sex life.

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.
