Yes, you read that right, Nigel Farage’s UKIP has been voted the most hated brand in the UK by Brits. Anticipate an infinitude of witty Twitter memes and hashtags.
The euro-sceptic party which is always at the centre of controversy even beat Marmite the food spread brand which uses the tag “Love it or hate it” in its marketing ads.
Making it in the same most-hated list as UKIP was budget Irish airline Ryanair, US fast food chains McDonald’s and KFC, alongside high-street coffee shop Starbucks. Whilst party leader Nigel Farage may not welcome the news – however unaffected his many facial expressions may seem – he may not be pleased to learn that online shopping giant Amazon topped the list of most loved brands in the UK. The online shop, normally scorned by critics for its alleged tax-avoidance, was cosily joined by Cadbury and Walkers in the same list.
The survey conducted by advertising agency Isobel comes after a poll published today showed that the Tories have gained a four-point lead in the run-up to the general election – the biggest surge for the party since 2013.
