UKIP’s official website has disappeared from the Internet, with the UKIP.org web address linking to a domain hosting page.
Speculation is rife that the party, currently third in UK popularity polls, simply forgot to renew its domain name.
Adding insult to injury, the current page features an advert asking: “Are you comfortable in your retirement?”
Some were soon suggesting the domain name had already been re-registered by someone else, meaning UKIP can’t get it back.
Vox Political can reveal that this is true:
How professional. And UKIP wants to govern the country.
UPDATE: From Alcopop Records, c.1.30pm – “Sorry guys – the internet has let us down. This morning we legitimately purchased the UKIP website for £200 (confirmation here). However, Go Daddy seem to have given it back to them (no sign of a refund yet). Genuinely gutted. We’ll be back Farage…”
