LONDON — Nigel Farage has been struck by a milkshake wielded by a protestor in Newcastle as he campaigned for the European elections.

The Brexit Party leader was visiting the city ahead of the European elections which take place on Thursday.

He was heard afterwards saying “this is a failure” and asking his security: “How did that happen?”

Several Brexit-supporting candidates for the European elections have been struck by milkshakes in recent weeks, including Carl Benjamin, the far-right UKIP candidate who joked about “raping” Labour MP Jess Phillips.

In the aftermath of the incident, Farage 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.”

The male protestor who threw the milkshake at Farage was arrested by police.
