‘Sexualised’ Leave campaign advert faces outright ban


EU out campaign advert banned

A pro-Brexit advert featuring prominent right-wingers in their underwear is to be banned on grounds of taste and decency.

The ruling follows a flood of complaints about the thirty-second clip, which features a scantily clad Nigel Farage bent over an armchair, sucking his finger.

Viewers are then presented with the message: “Whatever your choice on the 23rd of June, you can be sure it’s what’s underneath that counts”.

The saucy advert is seen as the Leave Campaign’s bid to target rational 18 to 24-year-old university students instead of frothing racists in their 70s.

Further criticism was directed at another clip in which Boris Johnson licks cream off Michael Gove’s erect nipples under a Union Jack.

The Leave campaign has denied it implied sexual activity in any way.

However a sequence in which Iain Duncan Smith is seen fisting a man in a Jean-Claude Juncker mask, accompanied by the slogan “The gloves are off”, was deemed ‘sexually suggestive’ as opposed to flirtatious or playful.

UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, said, “In response to the predictable liberal lefty backlash the replacement advert features the ethnic Priti Patel lying naked and spreadeagled underneath a bust of Winston Churchill.

“It just says, ‘Make sure you tick the right box’.”
