Mystery shrouds changes made to controversial UKIP posters in Folkestone after stickers offering alternative slogans were plastered over the originals.
A disgruntled resident has decided to rewrite the messages on them attacking the party's policies on labour and its belief Britain no longer has control over making its own laws.
The posters are part of the party's campaign ahead of the European Elections on May 22.
One of the alterations reads: "Have you tried hating foreigners... We think you'll like it" under a UKIP claim that 75% of laws in Britain are made in Brussels, asking voters "who really runs this country?"
Another replies to UKIP's suggestion EU laws are hitting British workers with "unlimited cheap labour" by saying instead that UKIP is "keeping low paid jobs for British workers".
The party is a long-term opponent to Britain's membership of the European Union and is against British involvement in the European Parliament in Brussels.
The party launched its poster campaign last week and they have been placed in locations across the eastern side of town and around the harbour area.
They are at the bottom of Blackbull Road, the junction between Canterbury Road and Dover Road and opposite The Cube in Tontine Street.
UKIP holds all three Folkestone seats at Kent County Council after elections last year.
