    Who would throw a milkshake at an 80 year old man?

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...-Party-supporting-army-veteran-MILKSHAKE.html

    Can anyone show me an equivalent act from the other side?

    Can anyone show me that the milkshake throwers are not representative of all remainers?

    What a dignified old man - I am so proud of him.

    On my way home tonight, I saw an audi (what else?) drive through a red light, as an old lady was crossing. The audi beeped at her to shift - but she didn't. She stopped and stood still and waved her stick at the audi, swearing and cursing. God bless her.

    Milkshake throwers / audi drivers = remainers

    Spirited old British lady and ex-soldier = Brexiters.

    Stupid stunt. The old boy should have stuck his walking stick in the thugs' bike wheel. Brave bloke too. Anyone that is prepared to throw themselves out of an aircraft with just a bit of cloth, is nuts.

    As for Audi drivers.....:(

    Ok not sure about the Audi bit being a remainer. However ive noticed on a few facebook groups Tuckered included a significant amount of remainer people very excited about milkshaking anyone now they don't agree with, juvenile pricks.

    Yes, I remember you said exactly the same about the bunch of Brexers attacking the man sat near their queue for the Brexer conference.

    Oh no, my mistake, you didn't.

    bunch of twats.

    Yes, the man that fought for our country, back in the days before we have a union to end war in Europe, didn't get upset about a bit of milkshake. Again, the hot headed fascists like Tommy Robinson and Farage can take a lesson from him.

    Chucking a shake over an elderly man is plain stupid. The person doing it is probably stupid too. And this should remind us all that when you start doing or saying stupid things, like "foreigners get out, we voted Brexit" and "Islam is an evil religion", then stupid people repeat it and then it'll be like Nazi Germany all over again. But where are the men that have the spirit to stand up against it today? The last time Europe was this divided, with so many right wing parties and groups dominating politics and the media, we had a world war.

    People really need to reign it in a bit. Everybody - the likes of Robinson and Farage, and the milkshake throwers too. It might sound melodramatic, but it is a sign that society is in decline. Everybody outside of the UK sees it, few of us do.

    Nice quote from the Hindu Businessline:

    "How could a modern, educated and open society, in which intensive open discourse precedes the exercise of public choice, have got it so wrong? The answer is that Britons were deluded by their popular low brow chauvinistic right wing press."

    What is most concerning is that so few people in the UK realise what a mess we're getting ourselves into - they just say "oh, it'll be OK in the end, we'll be stronger for it!". Maybe stronger, in the way the British steel industry was strengthened by those cost cutting moves in the 1980s....

    Will this do?


    I'll let you get away with asserting, or even suggesting, that they are as soon as you say that Thomas Mair is representative of all leavers.


    You're insane.

    About a week ago I saw a Police van (transit type) drive through a red light (no sirens or flashing lights), just in a queue of other traffic.

    Conclusion?

    "Sympathy"? Some.

    Should they do it? No.

    Even though it is amusing in the case of Farrago to see him on the receiving end of crititicism which he finds hard to just brush off.

    And also ironic in his case given that he has said that if he didn't get the Brexit he wanted he would resort to armed insurrection, and that if people can't get what they want by voting then violence is an option.

    As well as Tommy, Farage and one of our war hero's - an innocent american that was just interviewing both sides also got inducted into the shaker club by a mindless idiot that most likely did not know who he was throwing it at.

    It would be good if politics could be discussed without this kind of violence. I have remainer friends and my mrs even voted Lib dem in the council elections.

    No milkshakes or insults thrown. People can vote for whatever they like for whatever reason they like.
