A British court ruled on Tuesday that the man who threw a milkshake at Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, will have to pay him compensation for his suit cleaning.
Paul Crowther assaulted Farage on May 20th with a milkshake during a campaign tour for the Brexit Party in Newcastle, England. Crowther was immediately arrested by authorities and then fired from his job as a technical adviser for the telecoms company Sky.
After he pleaded guilty, Judge Bernard Begley ruled that the defendant would pay Farage £350($438) to cover damages to Farage’s suit and a lapel microphone. Crowther will also have to complete 150 hours of unpaid work.
Begley told Crowther, “This was an act of crass stupidity.”
If throwing milkshakes on people whose views they disagree with is the new go-to strategy for unhinged leftists, then we'll all be laughing. At their stupidity.
