The White Cliffs of Dover are now an iconic image on UKIP’s new billboard, launched on Saturday by UKIP leader, Nigel Farage.
It was unveiled in St Margaret’s Bay and it shows an image of the cliffs with an escalator running through the middle.
It indicates that the control of the port’s borders has been lost.
It reads: “No border, no control.”
UKIP leader, Nigel Farage said: “This is in my view the most powerful image of the entire European election campaign.
“It is designed to bring home to the British public just what membership of the EU means as regards controlling our own borders.
"“The White Cliffs of Dover have always been seen as symbolic of Britain’s island status.
“That status should give us added ability to pick and choose the people who come to live and work in our country.
“But under EU free movement laws we have no serious control whatever.
“No doubt the political establishment will react again in mock outrage and throw a new round of slurs and smears at UKIP and at me.
“We’ve been called every name under the sun in recent weeks.
“But we will not be silenced, and we know that millions of decent British people are on our side and are grateful that we are speaking out.”
Mr Farage tweeted: “Today I officially launched UKIP’s new billboard design in Dover.”
Kent_999s responded to this over the social networking site highlighting that it was in St Margaret’s “three miles” away from Dover.
