Farage ‘Milkshaked’ As Brexit Party Extends Double-Digit Polling Lead

Load WordPress Sites in as fast as 37ms!

With just days to go before voting begins, latest batch of polls are out, and they’ve confirmed that, during the final stretch of the campaign, the Brexit Party has only strengthened its lead in the race to win the UK’s 70 seats in the EU Parliament.

That’s huge news for the newly formed party, which was founded just weeks ago by former UKIP leader and purported ‘Brexit architect’ Nigel Farage. Because the UK elects its 70 MEPs via regional votes, and seats are distributed based on each party’s percentage of the vote in a given region, it looks increasingly likely that Brexit will win at least a plurality of the seats.

The Brexit Party is still well ahead nationally, leading the Lib Dems, Labour, the Greens and the Conservatives.

Support for the Party is particularly intense in Wales.

Meanwhile, both Labour and the Conservatives are taking a beating in the polls, a sign that Britons are apparently using the vote to vent their frustration with the UK’s political establishment.

Farage’s success with the Brexit Party has clearly alarmed remainers who have been secretly hoping the impasse in Parliament would lead to Brexit being cancelled.

Just yesterday, Farage became the latest conservative British politician to be doused with a milkshake.

The ‘milkshaking’ of conservative political figures has become a trend in recent weeks, with the assailants typically accompanying the throw of the milkshake with accusations of fascism or racism.

The trend raised such an uproar that McDonald’s said it would stop selling milkshakes in Scotland at the behest of police while Farage was in town.

Other rival chains seized the opportunity to do some ‘virtue signaling’, and Burger King chimed in to warn the people of Scotland that it would be selling milkshakes.

Unfortunately for BK, a Five Guys milkshake was used by Farage’s assailant – a banana and salted caramel shake, to be exact.
