- Someone threw a milkshake at Nigel Farage as he led his campaign in Newcastle
- Farage demands that the anonymous protester be charged with assault
- Penny Mordaunt gives details of a document release during the weekend
On May 20, Gordon Brown raised suspicions over the legal structure of the funding of Nigel Farage, Brexit party funding and has urged the electoral commission to start an investigation into the matter.
Nigel’s Campaign gone bad
Nigel Farage, the party leader, was campaigning today in Newcastle when a milkshake was thrown at him and now he demands that the person responsible should be charged with assault as he declares that traditional methods of the campaign are no longer working due to the radicalization of the remainers. Farage’s political opponents have condemned the attack.
Nigel Farage says he is confident that his party has used the correct channels for party funding without breaking the law despite the accusations being laid out. However, when he was asked whether he was sure his party hadn’t received funding from donors outside of the UK, he hedged, saying that he was 99% sure, unlike the 100% he had stated earlier when asked whether he was confident his party had followed the party funding rules.
UK government condemns all acts of torture
The defense secretary, Penny Mordaunt, responded to an urgent question about a document released during the weekend. She stated that ministers are allowed to share information from third parties if there is a serious risk of torture and if the ministers agree that potential benefits justify accepting the risk and the legal consequences that may follow.
Penny stated that the UK government stands against torture and does not participate or condone torture for any reason and that the policy is in line with domestic and global law. She also stated that the new document regarding the issue did not bring significant changes though it is under review for the wording.
