The 32-yr-old thug who cowardly attacked Nigel Farage yesterday afternoon in Newcastle has been charged for the disgraceful incident.

Paul Crowther, who is a grown man wearing a computer game t-shirt, threw a milkshake all over Nigel Farage as he was democratically campaigning in the city centre.

Asked whether it would change the way Nigel Farage campaigns going forward, Nigel Farage told the Press Association: “I hope not but I am concerned about the sheer level of hatred coming from those who think they’re better than me.

“I just think we’ve reached a point where normal campaigning is becoming very difficult, and that in a democratic society cannot be a good thing.”

“Civilised democracy only works if you’ve got the loser’s consent – you know, you lose the election, you don’t like it, but you accept it because that’s the system.

“Ever since 24 June 2016 we’ve had senior members of the British establishment – including two former prime ministers – literally refusing to accept the result, saying that those that voted Brexit didn’t know what they were voting for – they’re thick, they’re stupid, they’re lazy, they’re racist, they’re working class, they’re fat, they’re horrible.

“And that gives people on the other side of the argument a sense of moral superiority. And if you think you’re better than everybody else that then leads, I’m afraid, to a breakdown, not just in democracy, but in the civilisation that goes with it.

“And I think we’re in a very bad place with this.” It made no impact on the man himself who said “It takes a lot to frighten me.”
