Re: A giant balloon dubbed "Trump baby"

Has our metropolitan police and the National air control given permission? It's not actually Khan's decision to make. But it looks good for Khan to some people that he has given permission. Personally I can't see that they will get final permission. I can think of worse vile presidential visitors in recent times and hardly a hoohah about it..

Khan likes to get his fingers in all pies. This is so that he can be seen to be "actively" promoting whatever is going on at the time. At "good" outcomes, he likes to be able to pat himself on the back.

As Lord Mayor - personally I think he is a joke.

Re: A giant balloon dubbed "Trump baby"

True, a bit of silliness, but if Trump is so thin-skinned about a novelty blimp flying above his head then he is in the wrong profession...

Permission to fly the Blimp was granted by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan... maybe as a snub to the Trumps, ( inc Jr) for their more than disrespectful tweets about him and his running of the London Mayorship, in one even misinterpreting his words,to mean something else... or Trumps interference in UK politics by his seeming endorsement of by the retweeting of a British Fascist party video giving them a world platform ( worse as no check had been made and it was fake)

Re: A giant balloon dubbed "Trump baby"

The Trump baby blimp is a perfect riposte to the snowflake right

“…That blimp will be the perfect mascot for the mass demonstrations that will form Donald Trump’s welcoming party next week. Trump is hoping to use Britain as a perverse PR exercise, to show that he has indeed made America “great again”, that the country is now respected. Instead images will be broadcast across the globe of thousands of the citizens of America’s closest ally ridiculing the most powerful man on Earth, accompanied by a giant balloon of the president in a nappy…”

https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...inionconnectuk

And...

So, if the Trump state visit goes ahead, I recommend that we view it as an opportunity to show Trump what we are made of, as my colleague Gaby Hinsliff suggested. We are not cowed, we are not reeling, and we are supremely unimpressed by anyone who seeks to divide us at times of tragedy.

What better way to demonstrate this than through a festival of piss-taking, a jubilee of mockery that follows the president wherever he goes? One of the things that shone through on the women’s march was the hilarity of the signs and slogans. Consider that a benchmark to be beaten – I want Trump followed everywhere he goes with an array of cheeky placards and taunts; a chorus of kazoos, a crowd of raised middle fingers and inflatable chodes, and, of course, costumes. (I shall be dressing as a ramp, but if you are looking for other ideas apparently he also dislikes germs.) I want us to take inspiration from the Scousers who at the weekend laughed the EDL out of Liverpool to the strains of the Benny Hill soundtrack.

It’s the perfect strategy; there is nothing that Trump hates more than not being taken seriously, and there is nothing more British than not only resolutely refusing to tug our forelocks before any bully who insults us, but resorting to satire, wit and sarcasm as a mark of our lack of respect.

Re: A giant balloon dubbed "Trump baby"

He might not even mention it but in a couple of years time he might just think about it when signing something that benefits the UK. I think it will bother him myself but he will still say, "it was a great visit" because thats what people do.

Just like "how was your meal Sir"?

If nothing else it will keep that paper hat Owen Jones happy.
