UKIP’s first blunder of the year is… drumroll please… its website looking very weird.
If you log onto to UKIP.org, you can see a blue page with Norwegian tourism adverts like “Direct Tromsø from £72” and newspaper offers like “3 Months Telegraph For £1”.
According to political blog Guido Fawkes, which first spotted the change, UKIP’s domain name doesn’t expire until 2016, but was mysteriously changed yesterday.
There are also claims of the party forgetting to pay its website-hosting fees.
As you’d expect, the boo-boo threw Twitter into a tizzy:
Let’s all club together and buy http://t.co/CuHM6WFbLd then fill it with funny cat videos.

Losing its website not a serious problem for UKIP. They don’t have the internet in the 1950s.
