Ukip poster:

The UKIP poster is incredibly suggestive. It’s fairly visually captivating, with the striking image of an escalator at the white cliffs of dover. It seems to suggest that while the UK is in the EU that we are helpless to stop people from coming here. This poster seems designed to appeal to people who already disagree with mass immigration, it presents a false dichotomy that immigrants are inherently bad, and that we need to take “control” back. Another quick observation about this poster is it’s, phallic imagery, I doubt UKIP meant for their poster to be linked to this, more vulgar, imagery, but once it’s noticed, you can’t help but think UKIP is implying something a little more, than the surface of their poster would suggest.
