Pay Paul Crowther's fine to Nigel Farage

£2,521 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 263 people in 2 months
Paul Crowther was found guilty today of throwing a milkshake over Nigel Farage. He has been ordered to pay Farage £520. I'd like to help him pay it.

And maybe buy him a milkshake. It would mean a lot.

I have been in direct contact with Paul via private message on Twitter and he is aware of and supports this fundraising. Any funds transferred to him will be sent via BACS and a screenshot him confirming receipt of the payment will be posted here.

I set up this page for Paul Crowther because I felt that the punishment didn’t fit the crime. Throwing a milkshake over someone is, in my opinion, relatively harmless. As a direct consequence of this, Paul has become a target for hate from the far right, has lost his job and now has a criminal record. I vehemently oppose Nigel Farage and his politics, and am absolutely certain that this case was prosecuted to the extent it was because of the identity of the victim, not the nature of the crime.

As a stand up comedian, I very much doubt that an audience member would suffer the same consequences for pouring a drink over me in protest at something I said on stage. Whilst I agree that protestors should act within the law and suffer the consequences if they choose not to, I believe this whole affair has been blown out of proportion, and wanted to show some solidarity.

Should we raise more than the intended target, he and I will agree on a registered charity opposed to racism and hatred to benefit from the surplus funds, almost certainly one that would irritate Mr Farage. Once we hit the target, I plan to invite him to one of my gigs, and I may buy him a pint, or a milkshake.

We need about £5 more to cover the full £520 (currently after fees it's standing at £517). Any surplus will be donated to HOPE not hate Charitable Trust. Registered Companies House (2738367), Charity Commission (1013880). Thanks again everyone.

Wow - target reached in a few hours! Amazing!
I've adjusted the target slightly to make sure Paul gets the full £520 after Go fund Me deduct their fees, and hope to announce which charity will benefit from any surplus within 24 hours. You are all legends. #Milkshake
