Police stop McDonald’s from selling milkshakes near Nigel Farage rally

Police stop McDonald’s from selling milkshakes near Nigel Farage rally

"Yaxley-Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson, had the same drink thrown over him just days later at another event", reports CNN.

The Brexiteer, who has seen his party struggle in the polls while former UKIP leader Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party soars ahead, said the only poll that counted was the one on Thursday.

A McDonald's outlet in Edinburgh was reportedly asked by police not to sell milkshakes over fears Nigel Farage protesters would use the products as missiles.

"We will not be selling milkshakes or ice cream tonight", a sign reads in the McDonald's window. "This is due to a police request given recent events".

Farage was due to address the rally later in the day amid fresh scrutiny following a Channel 4 investigation into the sources of funding for his lavish lifestyle.

The MEP quit UKIP and formed the Brexit Party amid growing frustration with the government over their handling of Brexit.


Tommy Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, had a milkshake thrown over his head and shoulders during public campaigning in Warrington, Cheshire - the second time in a week after a similar incident in Greater Manchester.

Apparently, milkshakes are a popular item for violent political demonstrators in Scotland to throw at right-wing politicians with whom they disagree. We're selling milkshakes all weekend.

As news of the McDonald's ban reached other fast food chains, Burger King took advantage of the drama, posting on Twitter, "Dear people of Scotland. Have fun. Love BK #justsaying".

A £4.4m Chelsea home, furniture, utility bills, a auto and driver, personal assistant and an office were among things funded by Mr Banks for the Brexit Party leader in the year following the European Union referendum, the investigation alleges.

It has 35% of the vote, compared with 16% for the Lib Dems, 15% for Labour, 10% for the Greens and 9% for the Conservatives.
