No One Seems To Feel Bad About Nigel Farage Getting Hit With A Milkshake

Far-right British politician Nigel Farage received a sticky cold shower on Monday, much to the internet’s collective glee.

The Brexit Party leader was making a campaign stop at Newcastle when a man walked up and hurled a milkshake at him.

In the video, a dripping Farage can be heard grumbling to his security team that he could’ve seen the attack coming “a mile away.”

Paul Crowther, the milkshake-wielder, was immediately arrested. He told the Guardian that it was a banana and salt caramel milkshake and that he had zero regrets.

“I was quite looking forward to it, but I think it went on a better purpose,” Crowther said.

Besides leading the charge to Brexit, Farage has made several appearances on this side of the pond to boost President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. He even became a subject of scrutiny in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
