Burger King issued a Tweet reminding people they sold milkshakes. I believe they have since apologized for the stupidity.

An elderly veteran was assaulted today when a milkshake was thrown at him. His photo has gone viral.

With regard to the milkshakes, in 2002 Pim Fortuyn Was a Dutch right wing populist who had pies filled with urine thrown at his face. A month later he was shot dead by an activist. So it's possible that milkshake incidents without repercussions or retaliation are dangerous.

Case in point

Don Murray is one of the best and most experienced foreign correspondent/writers around bar none: quite the scathing indictment of May here -

I feel for May. She came into her role, inherited this mess, and tried to make it work. Instead she got pushback from within her own government and even her own party. Brutal.


Can't expect that the next PM will find the job any easier. The EU has already said they will not negotiate the current deal any further. So it's that deal, or a hard exit, or a do-over.

i don't feel sorry for may.  she tried.  she failed. 


let's see what someone else can do.  if it all fails they just hard-exit.  england will suffer for a bit but it'll work out eventually.

My only fear is that nutjob Corbyn and his crew of crazies figure out a way f getting in.


I lived in the UK in the 70's and witnessed first hand the aftermath of Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan and those were choirboys compared to the Corbynista radicals. Its like 200+ of Ben Isitts with real chips on their shoulders.


The Tories really fvcked this up from Cameron to May and BoJo meddling. The economy was on a roll, lots of jobs and people were generally healthy and employed. The big tell was the number of Eu workers in the UK....however over there the local councils have way more power and they were sucking the life out of the tax system with their welfare state ideology so eventually the boat was going to sink....maybe this chaos is a good thing as it will be a wake up call...lets just hope that saner minds prevail and not the crazies

I think most folks in GB and around the world have now long realized that there has to be a do-over.


What the political elite in GB can't quite picture yet is how they get there without destroying many hundreds (if not thousands) of political careers.

Nationalist and populists winning all across Europe today including Italy, Hungary and France where Le Pens party has beat Macrons. It appears the grand coalition of centre right and centre left parties will lose their majority in the EU parliament. In the UK the Tories and labour are way down and Brexit Party appears to be set for first place, we'll see by how much.

With results announced early Monday for all of England and Wales, the Brexit Party had won 28 of the 73 British EU seats up for grabs and almost a third of the votes. The Liberal Democrats took about 20 per cent of the vote and 15 seats – up from only one at the last EU election in 2014.

Labour came third with 10 seats, followed by the Greens with seven. The ruling Conservatives were in fifth place with just three EU seats and under 10 per cent of the vote.





carl benjamin and tommy robinson lost.
