The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has given the go-ahead for a giant helium-filled “angry baby” balloon of Donald Trump to fly over the British capital during the US President’s first official visit to the UK next week.
Campaign groups and trade unions are organizing a full schedule of protests to greet Trump when he lands on July 13 and the balloon to fly over Parliament Square here is expected to be the centerpiece. Protesters are also planning a "Stop Trump" march through central London on the same day.
"He is a deeply insecure man, and that is the only leverage we have over him. If we want his attention, we have to do something that humiliates him," said Leo Murray, an environmental campaigner behind the crowd-funded balloon stunt.
He described the inflatable "blimp" as an "obscene mutant clone of the President" and says it will "hold up a huge mirror of truth" to the world. "We want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him," Murray said. Source: The Independent
