Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Police asked Scotland McDonald’s to stop selling milkshakes near Brexit leader’s rally after recent dairy-throwing incidents”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Police told a McDonald’s near Edinburgh, Scotland, to not sell milkshakes on Friday evening over concerns that they would be thrown at Brexit leader Nigel Farage who was speaking nearby.
A sign appeared in the window of a McDonald’s just a few hundred feet from where Farage was speaking. It read, “We will not be selling milkshakes or ice cream tonight. This is due to a police request given recent events.”
Scott Macdonald, online coordinator for the Scottish Socialist Party posted a photo of the sign, writing “The McDonald’s next for the Farage demo. Someone clearly got wind.”
A McDonald’s spokesperson confirmed to The Guardian that they stopped the sale of milkshake and McFlurry products on Friday evening.
Another far-right campaigner, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon a.k.a. Tommy Robinson, had milkshakes thrown on him twice in two days earlier this month. And right-wing activist Carl Benjamin was also targeted last week by two men who tried to douse him with a milkshake but missed.

Dear people of Scotland.— Burger King (@BurgerKingUK) May 18, 2019
We’re selling milkshakes all weekend.
