UK: After activists threw milkshakes over several far right politicians in the past weeks, Nigel Farrage (Brexit Party) was stuck on his election campaign bus earlier today because people turned up with milkshake. The Milkshake actions have also spread to Sweden.

British mainstream media outlet Kent Live reported that Nigel Farrage was “trapped by three young men in balaclavas who ‘were holding milkshakes'” in Rochester, Kent, earlier today. Farrage was told to stay on his election campaign bus. Driver Michael Botton explained: “There are a couple of guys standing over there with milkshakes, they were going to throw them over him.”
Kent Live reporter Will Rider was at the scene and said: “Eventually he did come off but he only stepped about a metre away and chatted to some supporters.” But Rider continued by saying: “He got back on the bus very quickly.” Farrage did not visit a Brexit stall and did not walk through the streets to chat with people like he usually does during the election campaign. So the milkshake actions seem to disrupt his election campaign for the upcomingEU parliament elections. At least a bit.
In the past weeks Farrage and other far right politicians were “milkshaked” several times: Two days ago Nigel Farrage in Newcastle, UK:
Carl Benjamin, a candidate for the far right UKIP party was milkshaked in Salisbury, UK, earlier this week.
The former leader and founder of the fascist English Defence League, Tommy Robinson, is running for the elections as an independent candidate. Robinson was milkshaked several times in the past weeks:
The “Milkshake Challenge” have also spread to Sweden. In Malmö local fascist Dan Park also got a milkshake thrown over him.
The #MilkshakesAgainstFascism incidents spread across the #European continent. The well known nazi street artist Dan Park was milkshaked yesterday by #antifa during a #EUelections2019 event of the racist @AfS_riks in #Malmö #Sweden— Souidos (@Souidos) 21. Mai 2019
