Ukip South Thanet are the subject of intense ridicule on Twitter after they confused a well-known Catholic Cathedral in London for a mosque.
It started after the BBC’s Daily Politics show sent reporter Giles Dilnot out with a mood box – an unscientific test with a bin and plastic balls – to the streets of London to see what commuters, visitors and residents made of Nigel Farage.
Ukip South Thanet responded huffily by accusing the BBC of bias for placing the ballot outside a mosque but were left red-faced after it was pointed out to them on Twiiter to be the iconic Westminster Cathedral in Victoria.
The Twitterati responded accordingly and the hashtag #ThingsThatAreNotMosques soon went viral.
