Why A McDonalds Was Forced To Stop Selling Milkshakes
Police have ordered a McDonalds in Scotland to stop selling milkshakes over fears that drunk people would throw them at a political.
Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Part, was holding an event in Edinburgh ahead of next week’s European Elections.
However, Police was concerned that protesters would buy milkshakes from a McDonald's a few hundred meters away with the intention of pouring them on the hardline Brexiteer's head.
"We will not be selling milkshakes or ice creams tonight. This is due to a police request given recent events," a printed sign in the McDonald's window read on Friday.

McDonalds biggest rival Burger King responded saying "Dear people of Scotland. We're selling milkshakes all weekend. Have fun. Love BK #justsaying.’
