    It’s here at last! Let the blimp wars begin!

    On a more serious note, the excess money raised is going toward the campaign to oust the ‘mayor’ for his dismal record on crime - and indeed his indifference to soaring violent crime in London. Should be a good day!


    Sadiq Khan BIKINI blimp: 29 FOOT balloon will fly over the capital on Saturday

    A 29 FOOT blimp of Sadiq Khan wearing a bikini will be flown in Westminster on Saturday after a campaign was started in response to the London Mayor approving permission for a Trump baby blimp to be flown in July.

    The campaign was started by Yanny Gruere, who is 28 and from London.

    He told the Daily Star Online: “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....

    ...The blimp Mr Khan is wearing a yellow bikini.

    The choice of his clothing is a reference to the mayor's refusal to allow an advert featuring a woman wearing a bikini.

    Mr Gruere said he wants to raise awareness of surging crime rates in the capital since Mr Khan was elected Mayor in 2016.

    The balloon will fly in the same area the Trump blimp flew in July.


    It is also nine feet bigger than the Trump balloon.

    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."

    His dismal record on crime huh?

    Ever been to the UK? Ever tried to understand what the Mayor of London ACTUALLY DOES?

    The UK govt controls policing in the UK. They put up the money for policing and the amount of money they've put into policing since 2010 has dropped massively. Crime has risen everywhere.

    Largest annual crime rise for 10 years

    "Largest crime rise in England and Wales for 10 years"

    This is from a year ago. Same thing happened in the UK the last time the conservatives were in power.

    Police numbers down by 14% since 2009

    "
    Police officer numbers drop by nearly 20,000 since 2009"

    This from 2016

    So, you're blaming the Mayor of London out of pure ignorance.

    One of his powers is "Policing and crime policy, delivered by functional body Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime"

    It has oversight of the Metropolitan police, ie, police of London.

    "Although the office is responsible for strategic oversight of the Metropolitan Police, all operational policing decisions remain the responsibility of the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis. The office lacks the power to appoint or dismiss the commissioner."

    But really, there isn't that much power.

    A tour sounds good.

    Sadiq Khan blimp 'set to tour UK' after fund nears £75k target,' reveals man behind scheme
    upload_2018-8-30_15-49-27.jpeg


    A giant inflatable effigy of Sadiq Khan could be sent on a UK-wide tour after raising an excess of funds ahead of its maiden flight in London.

    Yanny Bruere, who organised the blimp’s creation, told the Standard that he plans to send the huge balloon across the length and breadth of the country using the money he has raised.


    The cost of putting on the stunt this weekend has totalled around £30,000 so far. Mr Bruere hoped to raise £75,000 for the project and has so far amassed close to £60,000...

    Khan......Khan....... sounds familiar.

    Isn't he the same bloke who said that his people indulging in mass murder is all part of living in any large European city and so people should just get fucking used to it?

    That Khan?

    No wonder frigidweirdo likes him.

    He’s not an immature crybaby like Trump, so probably no one will care
