As Twitchy reported earlier, Brandon Darby lit up Burger King for what was clearly an endorsement of someone’s throwing a milkshake at Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage. “We’re selling milkshakes all weekend. Have fun,” went the tweet, complete with #justsaying hashtag.

It made the news and made Farage look like a sympathetic figure to many. Plenty argued that throwing a milkshake at a politician with whom you disagree isn’t violence, but where is the line drawn, exactly? What can you throw at someone?

Jonn Elledge, who’s been an assistant editor of The New Statesman since November, figured that “someone god awful” had retweeted him and started an actual written debate over the propriety of throwing things at people.

How about nobody throws stuff? Simple. Hear that, Antifa?
