Brexit Party launch the ‘Milkshake Challenge’ to raise awareness about Brexit

Milkshake Challenge

Nigel Farage is asking the public to show support for Brexit by pouring a cold, creamy milkshake over themselves.

Mr Farage was viciously assaulted with a milkshake shortly after a speech in Newcastle on Monday afternoon. 

While the flavour of the beverage has not been released, the Brexit Party leader has been quick to turn a small dry cleaning bill into a massive media coup.

Mr Farage is calling for party members to show their support for Brexit by posting videos of themselves being doused with milkshakes on social media.

Reminiscent of the 2014 ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the Brexit Party hopes, what has been dubbed as The Milkshake Challenge, will raise awareness of Brexit ahead of the European Parliamentary Elections.

Launching the campaign live on the BBC, Brexit Party spokesmen John Fishlove said that there was not enough coverage of Brexit and that the Brexit Party hoped the campaign would go some way toward making the public more aware of Brexit and the issues surrounding Brexit

Discussing the recent horrific attack on Mr Farage, Mr Fishlove explained. 

“It is outrageous that a man like Nigel can be treated this way after all he has done for this country.

“All we are asking is that if you support Nigel and Brexit that you show that support.

“Together, we will show our enemies, that like Sir Winston Churchill, we will stand firm and will not flinch when a pint of melted ice cream, milk and cocoa solids is hurled towards us.

“If you support Brexit, I beg you, go home now and film yourself being drenched by a thick, creamy, vanilla flavoured drink.” 

The campaign has had a strong start with #MilkshakeChallenge trending on Twitter throughout the morning as loyal Brexiteers post their videos. 

Iranian President blocks Trump on Twitter

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has responded to threats from US President Donald Trump by blocking him on Twitter.

“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran,” the 74-year-old US President tweeted on Sunday. “Never threaten the United States again!”

This latest tweet follows weeks of escalating tensions between the two rogue regimes over Iran’s suspension of its commitments under the 2015 international nuclear deal. 

Iran’s Fars news agency reported that Major General Hossein Salami, commander of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, was deeply offended by the tweet but rejected claims made by the Trump administration that that was because he was a “liberal snowflake pussy”.

Sources close to the Major General say he drafted a reply in which he compared Mr Trump to “a maiden aunt whose home was littered with the faeces of many geriatric cats” but refrained from tweeting it following intervention from President Rouhani.

Appearing on the popular breakfast show Good Morning Tehran, President Rouhani said that Iran was leading the fight against trolls and cyber bullies, telling presenter Parsa Mehregan.

“Like many other countries, the Iranian people have benefited from online shopping, funny cat memes and wonderful satirical news sites like The Post Truth Post.

“And I want the Internet to be a safe place for the Iranian people, free from cyber bullies and trolls like Mr Trump.

“That is why I will set an example for the nation and will block Mr Trump on Twitter, Facebook and Insta this morning.

"Remember kids, don't feed the trolls." 

Asked if he had any fears about possible US military action, the Iranian President looked directly into the camera and told viewers.

“Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough.”
