Man charged for throwing milkshake at Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage has been trapped on a bus in Kent because of three young men wearing balaclavas who were "holding milkshakes".

Nigel Farage, the leader of UK Brexit Party and former leader of UKIP party, was reportedly "trapped" inside his campaign bus in Rochester during his trip around Kent County Wednesday.

Crowther, of Throckley, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, will appear before magistrates in North Tyneside on 18 June, police said.

Northumbria Police said Paul Crowther, 32, has been charged with common assault and criminal damage. The divisive Brexit Party leader was hit by a banana-and-salted-caramel milkshake.

Farage, one of the leading figures in the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, was covered in the milkshake at a campaign event for the European Parliament elections in the northern English city of Newcastle.

In another development, the European Parliament said it will investigate Mr Farage over his decision not to declare £450,000 he received in living expenses from the Leave.EU funder Arron Banks after the 2016 referendum. What "milkshaking" is: a recent phenomenon in the United Kingdom of right-wing politicians having the sweet, goopy drink thrown on them in protest.

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

"This is happening because democracy only fuctions in a civilised manner if you have the losers consent", he told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer.

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. This freakish movement of pelting right-wingers with milkshakes went viral earlier this month when a video showed Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (Tommy Robinson) get dunked by a McDonald's milkshake at a campaign event. A spokesman for Theresa May said on a more sombre note that the premier "has been clear that politicians should be able to go about their work and campaign without harassment, intimidation, or abuse".

"We seem to have a group, albeit mercifully small, but a group of totally radicalised Remainers who believe that their point of view is morally superior to the 17.4 million people who voted Brexit".
