Police in Scotland order McDonald’s to stop selling milkshakes for fear they will be dumped on the head of Brexit supporter Nigel Farage.

That, of course, was not Nigel Farage, that was some bloke named Tommy Robinson who is also a far Right politician and apparently one of the first recipients of the now notorious milkshake dunk.

Courtesy of CNN:

Police ordered a McDonald’s in Scotland to stop selling milkshakes over fears people would dunk them over Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage, staff said, after a flurry of incidents have left prominent far-right activists doused in the creamy liquid.

Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party, was holding an event in Edinburgh on Friday ahead of next week’s European elections.
But police were concerned that protesters would buy milkshakes from a McDonald’s a few hundred meters away with the intention of pouring them on the hardline Brexiteer’s head.

A milkshake-dunking movement in Britain began after video went viral earlier this month showing a protester throwing a McDonald’s milkshake over far-right campaigner Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.

Yaxley-Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson, had the same drink thrown over him just days later at different event.
Another protester did the same to Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin, who was sprayed with a milkshake in Salisbury on Sunday, it was confirmed to CNN.

An individual who was present during the incident said that a few residents “tried to engage Carl in debate, but he merely deflected criticism.” They added that Benjamin saw someone with “what could have been a milkshake and goaded them to throw it at him.” They subsequently confirmed that the milkshake was thrown over Benjamin around half an hour later.

Benjamin suffered the same fate last week when he was covered in milkshake and fish and chips during another campaign stop. He is currently being investigated by police over comments speculating about whether he should rape a female MP.

Personally, I think as far as protests go this is fairly benign, though a tad messy to be sure. 

However, considering the damage some of these far-right folks are doing to their country they should be glad that what is thrown at them is not more dangerous.

By the way, where some people saw unnecessary overreach by the police, Burger King saw nothing but sweet, sweet opportunity. 

Are Shamrock Shakes still a thing? Because for some reason I think this would be so much cooler if it involved Shamrock Shakes. 

Update: So apparently Farage has a reason to fear the milkshake.

Man, he looks pathetic.

    U.S. President Donald Trump warned this week that Iran would be met with “great force” if it attacked U.S. interests in the Middle East. At the weekend he tweeted that “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran.”

    a commander of its powerful Revolutionary Guards said this month U.S. assets in the Gulf were now targets. “If (the Americans) make a move, we will hit them in the head,” said Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Guards’ aerospace division.

    What a total waste of a milkshake. I can think of far better things to chuck at him.
