Nigel Farage TRAPPED on Brexit Party bus as he’s targeted by men armed with milkshakes
Mr Farage’s visit to Rochester, Kent, has been distrupted by three young men believed to be ready to attack the Brexit Party’s leader with milkshakes. The trio, dressed in black with their faces covered with balaclavas, were spotted by eagle-eyed supporters at the back of the crowd waiting for Mr Farage to leave his bus.
One concerned Brexit Party’s supporter immediately warned the MEP’s staff, which urged Mr Farage not to get off the bus as a premetive measure to avoid another milkshake shower.
Driver Michael Botton explained: “There are a couple of guys standing over there with milkshakes, they were going to throw them over him.
“But the police are there, we’ve spotted them and now Nigel isn’t getting off the bus.”
A Kent Live reporter, Will Rider, confirmed Mr Farage remained in the bus for a long time after being warned of the danger he was facing.
And when he eventually get off the bus, he stopped only for a very brief period of time to speak with his supporters.
The journalist wrote: “Eventually he did come off but he only stepped about a metre away and chatted to some supporters.
“He got back on the bus very quickly.
“In all the other places he stopped off and walked down the high street.
“There was a Brexit stall on this high street but he didn’t visit it. He’s gone and everyone has left now.”
Mr Farage was thrown over a milkshake on Monday as his campaign trail stopped in Newcastle.
The man believed to be the attacker, 32-year-old Paul Crowther, was branded a “radicalised Eemainer” by Mr Farage, who was left with hus suit coated in milkshake.
He later tweeted: “Sadly some remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible.
“For a civilised democracy to work you need the losers consent, politicians not accepting the referendum result have led us to this.”
He has been charged with common assault and criminal damage relating to the microphones of the Brexit Party leader on Tuesday.
The milkshake attack to Mr Farage followed two similar aggressions perpetrated against Ukip’s Carl Benjamin and ex-English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson earlier this month.
