What do you lads think of this? Right wing youth movement, cringeworthy use of memes, roundly mocked by the left. My uni apparently has a chapter, but I've seen no evidence of it existing. Seems very pro-Israel, pro-free market, anti-Corbyn.
Expand all images.

They've become an instant joke.

Just as embarrassing as when I joined the Communist Party of Britain when I was 15.

I still get emails from them.

RE points three and seven: No, I'm terrible at remembering keyboard shortcuts and does the .gs moderation team count?

I think trying to take the name of a recognised, useful charity that already does excellent work is reprehensible - they're a fucking joke.

If they gave a shit about that sort of thing they wouldn't be Tories.

There are loads of Turning Point UK accounts on Twitter and nobody knows which ones are real anymore. It's glorious.

That has been the most hilarious thing to watch, too.

I'm quite happy for both sides to obliterate one-another if at all possible. I remember from my own university days how irritating and orthodox student politics is and the general shit-show of organisations like NUS.

Wouldn't think about joining it if I were you, it'll almost certainly become a black mark on your academic career.

In fairness, the name is a coincidence as the organisation began in the USA.

Doesn't matter - plenty of companies and organisations in the UK and Europe have different names from their US versions, just for this reason.

I doubt they bothered to even google the name before they registered it.

Any campaign relating to the UK politically is going to be targeted immediately now. US conservatives saw it right away. It's funny but it goes deeper than having a laugh.

The NZ shooter cited Turning Point's Candace Owens as one of his inspirations. Maybe Turning Point are more dangerous than I initially gave them credit for.
