It seems like only thirty seconds ago (it’s been two days) since Nigel Farage was last embroiled in turmoil due to an errant milkshake but here we are again.
As you’re no doubt aware milkshakes have been the primary protestor missile for several weeks now after activist and MEP candidate Tommy Robinson was struck by a milkshake in [insert place.
Copycats quickly followed and they’re now pretty much a constant on all Brexit Party campaigns. What a time to be alive, eh?
This time Farage was apparently campaigning in Kent when a group of hooded men were seen carrying what appeared to be milkshakes within close distance of the bus.
Let’s stress the word appeared here, it’s entirely possible that they were just men having a delicious frappucino or morning mocha.
Anyhow, a freak out ensued. Bus driver Michael Botton told Kent Live:
There were a couple of guys standing with milkshakes, they were going to throw them over him...
...But the police are there, we’ve spotted them and now Nigel isn’t getting off the bus.
According to Will Rider, a Kent Live reporter at the scene the Brexit Party leader did leave the bus after a short while but didn’t stay for very long.
He was stuck on the bus for ages and wouldn't come off.
”Eventually he did come off but he only stepped about a metre away and chatted to some supporters. He got back on the bus very quickly.
“In all the other places he stopped off and walked down the high street.
The internet, of course, got straight to it and did its thing
Others just straight up didn't believe it
There have been several similar incidents with Tommy Robinson again and Carl Benjamin. Last weekend a McDonald’s in Scotland were asked to stop selling milkshakes when the Brexit Party were in town.
