The #WhyImVotingUkip hashtag was quickly hi-jacked on Twitter and quickly became a stream of gags, memes and piss-takes.
It's unsettling that #WhyImVotingUkip is trending until you see that every tweet that contains the hashtag is actually mocking them.— Summer Ray (@SummerRay) May 6, 2015
If you'll remember this is not the first time this has happened - almost a year to the day the exact same hashtag prompted the same response.

Two polls have Labour and the Tories neck and neck but a third London-focused survey has Ed Miliband's Labour streaking ahead.
TNS has the Conservatives marginally ahead on 33% to Labour's 32%, each down one point. Ukip were on 14%, down one, and the Liberal Democrats on 8%, up one.
The pollster said both main parties are stuck in the margin of error. It said voter turn-out would be around 69% on average, with more voters taking part in Scotland than the rest of the country.Suggest a correction
