London Mayor, Sadiq Khan has reacted to the 29ft long blimp depicting himself in a yellow bikini.
Yanny Gruere who started the campaign raised £58,000 in a matter of weeks in response the ‘baby Trump’ balloon which was allowed to fly over parliament square during Trump’s visit to the UK.
The balloon depicts the London Mayor in a yellow bikini and will be used to take a stand against the rising crime in the capital and Mr Khans backing over the Trump Baby blimp.
Gruere said: “I started it because I was irritated that Khan was willing to mock a great ally like the US President- particularly at such an important time as Brexit.
“We thought it would be ironic and humorous if the situation was reversed and Khan had to submit himself to the same mockery in the name of free speech.
“Khan should be focusing on soaring crime levels in London, not point scoring with a great ally.”
Khan has responded to the planned protest which will take place on Saturday, saying: “If people want to spend their Saturday looking at me in a yellow bikini they’re welcome to do so – I don’t really think yellow’s my colour though,”
You’d expect Khan to be angry at this? But it appears not.
He would have been seen as a hypocrite if he did not allow the balloon to fly as it was his offices’ decision to approve the Baby Trump blimp.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he is putting on a brave face though and deep down the London Mayor is absolutely furious.

Mr Gruere tweeted: “It’s OFFICIAL. The balloon WILL fly. Saturday 9.30am at Parliament Square. @SadiqKhan had no choice in the end.”
Joani Walsh tweeted: “Trump Baby crowdfunding ended on £35,000. Bikini Khan still going on £58,000.
“Looks like the British public hates Sadiq Khan even more than the Donald.”
Khan’s we went from bad to worse when news broke that Nigel Farage is considering running against the London Mayor in the 2020 election.
Speaking to the Financial Times, he said: “I have been encouraged to stand by a group of people, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to.
“I haven’t said no to it, I’m thinking about it.
“The Tory party are very actively aware that if I did stand, they would probably come third, and they are afraid of that.”
Could you imagine how good it would be to see Khan kicked out of office by Mr Brexi himself? We’d be jumping for joy. Seeing as more Londoners voted for Brexit than they did electing Sadiq Khan, I think Mr Farage would stand a very could chance of victory.
