Tommy Robinson, the far-right activist, Islamophobe and former EDL leader is attempting to become a member of the European Parliament in the upcoming EU elections.
Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is hoping to become the MEP for North West England but the early stages of his campaign aren't going according to plan.
A day after he was literally accused of 'spouting s**te' on the streets of Salford, Robinson was in Bury, Greater Manchester trying to attract more voters.
Not only did just a handful of his supporters show up for a speech that he gave in the town centre but someone also threw a strawberry milkshake over the 36-year-old.
Robinson, reported this first on his Telegram account stating at around 1:13 pm:
Had a strawberry milkshake thrown over me by some I dunno, I'd say some Muslim supporter of course. I'm going to Nandos.
This was then tweeted about by the Guardian's Josh Halliday before a video emerged of the beverage being thrown at Robinson and the culprit being chased down a street.
