Nigel Farage hit with milkshake during UK election – POLITICO

“A hell of a nuisance”

“We have had enough of a government that bows to big business,” Farage said as he opened his eighth bid to become an MP, this time in a seat that appears eminently winnable. “Large companies will voluntarily employ foreign workers, to the detriment of British workers. We want to put the British back to work.

Crowds gathered outside Farage and even gathered on a bridge in front of the pier to watch him speak. Farage’s long-time communications adviser Gawain Towler placed a speaker on his head to project sound to those watching.

Declaring that the British election is already over – and that Labor should crush the ruling Conservatives – Farage had a message for those wondering what he could achieve as a potential lone voice in the House of Commons: “Send “Me in Parliament for being a damn nuisance,” he said.

“Save Clacton, save Britain,” shouted a Reform representative as Farage finished.

But there was a group at the launch who didn’t like Farage so much – and held up a banner reading ‘Farage is not welcome here’.

Today’s incident was not Farage’s first milkshake. He was milkshaked while campaigning for the Brexit Party in 2019.
