'Radicalised' Remainers - throw milk shakes.
'Radicalised' Leavers - shoot Jo Cox.

A bit like approx 1 million People's Vote marchers in London - no trouble (and there were people with Brexit means Brexit type placards there).
A few hundred UKIP/Leavers in London - arrests.
 
Throwing fast food at Wotsit party leaders won't alter anyone's opinion.

Those who dislike the leaders will continue to do so, and those who support them will continue to do so.

However, what it might do is illicit sympathy from the 99 percent of the population who couldn't give a toss about politicians one way or the other.

in that respect, the protesters would be better advised to consume their fast food rather than throw it.

He needs to go and look up what "loser's consent" means.
Specially considering he is on record before the referendum saying that if it was close for remain, it wouldn't be finished by a long shot, so what is good for the goose and all that.

Having said that, I think all this milkshake throwing is counterproductive and off putting. Lets address them with arguments, not stoop to their level.
 
There's also a risk of creating a fad for pelting people.

Few of us have a party leader close at hand, so some other poor sap becomes a target.

A few years ago, kids around here took to celebrating the end of their schooling by throwing eggs at each other.

It wasn't long before my local bike shop received reports from a couple of customers who had been egged while using a cycle path.

Throwing eggs, rotten fruit, turnips etc., has been a way of expressing distaste for public figures since the dark ages. Milkshakes are just an update.
