The latest trend from the UK left is to assault politicians they don’t like by throwing milkshakes on them. One of the victims of said milkshake throwing is Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit party which has taken the UK by storm both in popularity and in the elections.

Nigel Farage noted that the “remainers,” or those who wish to remain in the European Union, have become radicalized and have made normal campaigning impossible.

Paul Crowther thought he was doing something brave and good when he threw his milkshake on Farage, but according to the Daily Caller, the UK courts disagreed. He’s now being forced to cough up some cash to Farage for his crime:

After he pleaded guilty, Judge Bernard Begley ruled that the defendant would pay Farage £350($438) to cover damages to Farage’s suit and a lapel microphone. Crowther will also have to complete 150 hours of unpaid work.

Begley told Crowther, “This was an act of crass stupidity.”

“While members of the public have the democratic right to engage in peaceful protest, it is wholly appropriate to bring charges in any case where such protests cross the line into criminal behavior,” said Chris Atkinson of the crown prosecution service. “In an open democracy, people should be free to conduct legitimate political campaigns without fear of physical assault.”

Crowther’s monetary fines may a bit more difficult to pay thanks tot he fact that he was also fired from his tech adviser job at telecom company Sky.

Despite Crowther’s best attempts at stopping a wave of anti-EU sentiment by wasting a perfectly good milkshake, the Brexit party cleaned house at the elections, garnering more votes than any other party despite being only weeks old.

Apparently, the milkshake throwing trend has become worldwide. Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Republican, had a milkshake thrown on him after a town hall in Pensacola, Florida, according to the Daily Caller.

It should be noted that this is a completely infantile move and does nothing to change the ideas of those who have them, nor does it change the ideas of those who agree. In fact, I’d argue it only strengthens ideological standpoints and causes people to laugh at the person throwing the milkshake over the infantile way of expressing disagreement.

Children throw things when they’re upset and having a tantrum. The grown-up thing to do argue your points, and if your points fail to overcome another person’s points then maybe that’s a sign your points just aren’t that good and you should go work on them.
