A PICTURE of a banner bearing the repeated initials of the anti-immigration, Brexit-backing United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) has gone viral in Malaysia and the Philippines for a comical language mistake…

Looks like a Frother with Tourette's made that banner.

Funny, like it, but doesn't this class as political?

I don't think talking about a banner really counts as political. If you were to say something about the actual exit that would be political.

Seems more marketing than politics. It would have looked better with a space between each 'UKIP' even without the rude word confusion!

"… but doesn't this class as political?"

You've got to be kidding, how is pointing to a article about how something written in one language can mean something completely different and humorous in another be political?

'British pro-Brexit UKIP banner'
'A PICTURE of a banner bearing the repeated initials of the anti-immigration, Brexit-backing United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP)'
' The banner bears the words "I'm voting UKIP" '

Yes, it's funny. yes, I had a good laugh….

But it's also a political party electioneering which is pretty political…

Yes, but neither the article nor the OP took a stand on or make a value judgement about the politics related to the issue.

War is inherently political, yet the overwhelming majority of people here are able to comment on it without becoming political in their statements.
