Tommy Robinson covered in milkshake for second time in two days
This is the moment when Tommy Robinson has a milkshake thrown over him for the second time in two days while campaigning for the upcoming European elections. The English Defence League (EDL) founder was on the streets of Warrington, Cheshire, today (May 2) as part of his campaign to become an independent MEP for north-west England. In the video, we can see him dressed in a suit talking to a young man holding a McDonald’s milkshake before the man spills the drink on his head. Then, Robinson appears to throw several punches at the man, who was held in place by supporters. The filmer can be heard saying: “That’s what you get for being a fascist, you f***ing massive prick.” Robinson, real-name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was later filmed sitting in a police car as protesters stood with placards nearby. A spokesperson for Cheshire Police said: “We are aware of an allegation of assault made following an incident in Bridge Street in Warrington this afternoon. We are looking into the circumstances.” The incident came a day after Robinson had a milkshake thrown at him on the campaign trail in Bury, Greater Manchester.
