Pelting with foodstuffs is a political protest tradition that dates back at least as far as the Roman Empire.

I’m not saying that Farage is a petulant snowflake but when Peter Mandelson was covered with green custard( he initially thought it was paint), his response was rather more dignified.

Let's be clear: Nigel Farage isn't a politician, he's a fascist and a milkshake isn't a weapon. But violence against the poor through benefits sanction is, violence against refugees through racism is, violence against the vulnerable through vilifying them is.
