As we have seen in recent months, the liberal movement has been steadily unraveling — and not just in this country. In Great Britain leftists have become equally unhinged, as the practice of throwing drinks at politicians was attempted to become a normal part of political expression.

At least there has been a dose of sanity introduced to the mix, as the man who threw a milkshake at Nigel Farage has been found guilty.

Paul Crowther was the individual brought in to authorities, and was ruled to pay close to $450 (US) for the cost of cleaning the suit Farage wore, as well as replace the audio equipment he wore that day. While a bit of a token amount, it is made challenging because Crowther has since lost his job, as a result of his actions.

Except, it is not likely he will feel too much of a sting.

Curious to find out however – will the crowd be willing to also perform his 1 full month of community service as well???

The judge was rather stern in his assessment of the whole episode. “This was an act of crass stupidity,” said Judge Bernard Begley. “In an open democracy, people should be free to conduct legitimate political campaigns without fear of physical assault.”

As expected, this light sentence – and the public funding of his fine – leads to a number of Farage opponents not seeing a lesson in all of this. There was plenty of applause still taking place.

One British pundit noted that there seemed to be a bit of divergence on the matter of tossing foodstuffs at politicians. It seems if the target in question is a member of an “approved” party then the judgment, and the media reactions, are quite different.

What is that phrase about “they would not have standards at all”…??? Seems the affliction of fluid morality is not confined to our borders.
