The EU Referendum takes place on Thursday the 23rd of June 2016. The question that will be asked for those voting is “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”.
We take a look at both campaigns and what kind of visuals have been supporting both the Vote Leave and IN/Remain sides.
The EU Referendum in Pictures:
Within hours, people took to social media had criticised Farage, Twitter users had pointed out the image was almost identical to Nazi propaganda footage of migrants shown in a BBC documentary from 2005.
A string of politicians had criticised and condemned the poster including Nicola Sturgeon and Yvette Cooper. Baroness Warsi previously backed Leave but this morning said that the “hate and xenophobia” of the Leave campaign had gone “too far”.
Unison’s Dave Prentis had this to say about Nigel Farage’s new poster campaign
“This is scaremongering in its most extreme and vile form. Leave campaigners have descended into the gutter with their latest attempt to frighten working people into voting to leave the EU.
“To pretend that migration to the UK is only about people who are not white is to peddle the racism that has no place in a modern, caring society. That’s why Unison has complained about this blatant attempt to incite racial hatred and breach UK race laws.”
The IN/Remain Campaign:
