According to various websites today, a troupe of Nazi dancing girls and a 16 tonne WWII tank rolled into Margate in Kent, with ‘Springtime for Hitler’ blaring from the turret, to welcome UKIP delegates arriving for their spring party conference.
It turns out that the group were promoting a production of ‘The Producers’ by Mel Brooks, which is on tour in the UK at the moment, but went out of their way to perform one of their dance routines for the UKIP conference attendees.
The show’s producer, Adam Spiegel, is reported as saying:
“We open the UK tour of The Producers next week and Margate seemed a perfect place to start the promotion. I’m disappointed but not entirely surprised to see that Ukip are trying to hitch a publicity ride on the back of the show.”
