Nigel Farage has been drenched by a milkshake during a walkabout in Newcastle City Centre.
The Brexit Party leader had to be led away by security as a person was dragged away by a Police Community Support Officer.
Farage fumed at his security staff: “How did you not stop that happening? It’s a complete failure.”
Paul Crowther, 32, from Throckley, Newcastle, said it was a £5.25 Five Guys banana and salted caramel milkshake.
The Tories have suffered a major meltdown in local elections, losing hundreds of seats as furious Brexit supporters turned against Theresa May over her handling of Britain’s departure from the European Union.
The Conservatives had already been braced for a tough night amid frustration at the Prime Minister’s failure to take Britain out of the EU on March 29 as planned.
But in a clear message to politicians to get their act together over Brexit the party had lost more than 400 seats before even half of councils had declared results today.
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn would become prime minister and his party would take over the House of Commons, dealing a crushing blow to the May government should a snap election be held now.
An Electoral Calculus poll commissioned by the Sunday Telegraph has revealed that the Conservatives would be upstaged by Corbyn and Co. in the event of a general election. The incumbent PM Theresa May’s party is set to lose 59 seats in the legislature, which would leave it with 259 seats. The Labour Party is, on the other hand, projected to overtake the Tories by claiming 296 seats.
While that would not give Corbyn the majority needed to form a one-party government, it would be enough for him to rule in a coalition with the Scottish National Party (SNP).
The ‘establishment” will do anything to stop Brexit. May has been a deliberate disaster.
The Conservatives are going to get creamed if and when the next Euro elections happen, of that there’s no question. Their natural constituency won’t easily forgive the party for betraying Brexit in the way that Theresa May and her Cabinet of Remainers have done.
But the bigger question is: what will happen when Conservative voters’ loyalties are tested in a general election?
Jon Snow – Troubled by gatherings of white people.
Jon Snow, star anchor for publicly-owned Channel 4 News, has drawn criticism for appearing to racialise a protest in support of Brexit yesterday, claiming he had “never seen so many white people in one place”.
Snow, himself a white, upper-middle-class son of a Church of England bishop, made the controversial observation while closing out his on-the-ground coverage of a long day of protest against the Government, Members of Parliament, and the European Council coming together to delay Brexit, which was originally scheduled for 11 p.m. on March 29th, but has now been pushed to at least April or May, and may yet be postponed beyond 2019 or cancelled altogether.
Pro-Brexit demonstrators descended on Downing Street after tens of thousands marched to Parliament Square furious over the ‘Brexit betrayal’ of Theresa May’s latest EU Commons defeat.
Police lined the security gates in Whitehall and parliamentary staff were sent home early over fears the huge crowds could turn violent. At least five people have been arrested at the protest so far.
In a face-off with protestors who sang ‘oh Tommy, Tommy, Tommy Robinson’, police flanked the entrance to No10 as several shouted ‘we want our country back’ and ‘we want Brexit’ before turning on a television crew.
Good Lord just ditch her now… May hints she WILL have one last attempt to pass her deal next week after Tory ‘Spartans’ scuppered victory yesterday… but if it’s rejected she could call a third UK election in just four years
As a reader of the New York Times, Cockburn has learnt that all American life is a vast ‘project’ of ‘white supremacy’. As is everything else that the Times, in its infallibly provincial wisdom, disapproves of, and wishes to disinvite from the endless Manhattan dinner party towards which the arc of history is forever bending. So the editors of the Times will print any nonsense about Britain — the British live on mutton and oatmeal! — so long as it confirms their prejudices about Brexit.
‘With nothing meaningful to say about our future, we’ve retreated into the falsehoods of the past, painting over the absence of certainty at our core with a whitewash of poisonous nostalgia,’ an English autoflagellator named Sam Byers wrote on Saturday.
It is time for plain speaking. The stakes are too high for euphemism or obfuscation. Bluntness is required now. And the blunt fact is this: Britain’s parliamentarians are in revolt against the electorate. They are defying the demos. They are pursuing a coup, albeit a bloodless one, against the public. This is what last night’s votes against a no-deal Brexit reveal: that our representatives now refuse to represent us.
Classism is never far below the surface of Remoaner campaigning. That small but influential section of society that has devoted its moral, political and financial energies to stopping Brexit can barely conceal its disgust for the little people who voted Leave. You can see it in their denunciation of Leave voters as ‘low-information’, in their promotion of graphs showing that the uneducated are more likely than the educated to be Brexiteers, in those New European cartoons in which the plebs are always gargoyle-style imbeciles leaping off cliffs or getting fat on ice-cream as the nation goes to shit thanks to their stupid vote.
British officials have revived cold war emergency plans to relocate the royal family should there be riots in London if Britain suffers a disruptive departure from the European Union, two Sunday newspapers have reported.
Violence could erupt on the streets of Britain in the wake of Brexit according to a secret report by European officials.
Senior intelligence officials warned that civil unrest and rioting is almost inevitable and the UK will be left ‘unstable’ for decades.
The EU report also claims there will be independence referendums in both Scotland and Northern Ireland with 18 months of the UK leaving the EU.
Leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg dismissed the reports and told MailOnline ‘it sounds as if EU intelligence is an oxymoron’.
Today is the day Britain turns Remain as more EU-loving youngsters reach voting age and elderly Leavers pass away, a survey has claimed.
The study found that even if nobody changed how they voted in the 2016 referendum, the demographic shift over the last two and a half years will have supposedly changed in Remain’s favour on January 19.
Former YouGov president Peter Kellner conducted the survey for the People’s Vote campaign, which is pushing for a second referendum.
Brexit-supporting Tories have slammed Chancellor Philip “Remainer Phil” Hammond’s comments on MPs blocking a “No Deal” Brexit as “treacherous” and “totally incompetent”.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, long accused of pushing for the weakest possible form of Brexit from within Cabinet and using his role at HM Treasury to stall preparations for an EU exit without a formal agreement on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms, was recorded assuring corporate bosses that MPs would block No Deal in Parliament in a leaked call.
“He seems to have breached collective responsibility of the Cabinet, where the official position is still no deal is better than a bad deal,” complained Brexiteer backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg.
No two ways about it. Brexit has been deliberately sabotaged.
