Farage Gets Milkshake Dumped On Him, Internet Points And Laughs

After his arrest, he said he did not regret his actions, adding: "I was quite looking forward to it [the milkshake], but I think it went on a better objective".

"It's a right of protest against people like him".

One person wrote, "On this day, and on each anniversary of this day; I will drink a banana milkshake and think of the way a #Milkshake ran down the suit of Nigel Farage sullying him like he has tried to dirty our democracy, for years".

Laughs can be heard from members of the public as Mr Farage berates his security team for not acting faster to his attacker. Police said a 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault.

The party leads polling ahead of Thursday's (May 23) European elections as it attracts voters disgruntled at the failure of the mainstream parties to deliver Brexit. "The bile and the racism he spouts out in this country is far more damaging than a bit of milkshake to his front", Crowther said.

The company has said until now US accusations it is a security threat have had little impact on sales outside the United States . The block also affects security updates with Huawei devices facing possible issues installing the latest upgrades and bug fixes.

Mr Farage took to Twitter soon after to denounce the milkshake attack and what it meant for public campaigning, blaming the UK Parliament's inability to successfully exit the European Union after the 2016 referendum.

Mr Farage tweeted: "Sadly some remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible".

It seems the milkshake has become the weapon of choice for political demonstrators with political figures in their sights.

Last week, police apparently ordered a McDonald's outlet near a Brexit Party campaign rally to stop selling milkshakes and ice cream, according to the restaurant's staff.

On Saturday, Burger King came under fire after tweeting: "Dear people of Scotland, we're selling milkshakes all weekend". Burger King later sent a follow-up tweet, staying: "We'd never endorse violence - or wasting our delicious milkshakes!" Other right-wing candidates including far-right activist Tommy Robinson have also been pelted with milkshakes during the election campaign.
