Crowdfunded Balloon To Fly In London

The right can play the blimp game also. After raising £59,452  of £75,000 stretch target in a crowdfunding campaign, Yanny Bruere, a “free speech” advocate running the Make London Safe Again campaign (sound familiar?), is planning to fly a blimp of London mayor Sadiq Khan wearing a bikini.

The unsightly balloon is meant to throw shade on Khan’s proposed ban on body shaming television advertisements.

With the success of the satirical Trump balloon depicting him as an orange skinned baby holding a cellphone that was flown during the President’s visit to the UK, the group believes that the public will glom on to its message against the Mayor’s perceived radical left policies.
