Trump Baby to fly over Parliament SquarePage 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
So what do you think of this sort of protest?

Giant 'Trump Baby' could fly over London for president's visit

Plans to fly a giant inflatable figure depicting Donald Trump as a baby over London during the US president's visit have been approved.

Mr Trump is due to meet Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on 13 July.

Campaigners raised almost £18,000 for the helium-filled six-metre high figure, which they said reflects Mr Trump's character as an "angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave permission for the balloon to fly.

The White House has been approached for comment.

On Twitter former UKIP leader Nigel Farage said the plan was "the biggest insult to a sitting US President ever".

Under the plans the inflatable will be allowed to fly for two hours on the morning of Friday 13 July.

Leo Murray, who is behind the crowdfunded idea, said: "[Mr Trump] really seems to hate it when people make fun of him.

"So when he visits the UK on Friday, we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him.

"That's why a group of us have chipped in and raised enough money to have a six-metre high blimp made by a professional inflatables company, to be flown in the skies over Parliament Square during Trump's visit."

Mr Murray said organisers initially "didn't get off to the best start with the mayor's office over this, who originally told us that they didn't recognise Trump Baby as legitimate protest".

However, he said City Hall had "rediscovered its sense of humour - Trump Baby will fly".

A statement on behalf of the London mayor said he "supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms".

Mr Khan's city operations team met organisers and gave them permission to "use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp".

The plan is for the Trump Baby to take off from Parliament Square
More than 10,000 people signed a petition calling for the inflatable to be given permission to fly, activists said.

Mr Khan and Mr Trump have repeatedly clashed on Twitter, including in the aftermath of the London Bridge attack.

Before the figure can take off, campaigners will also need permission from the National Air Traffic Service (NATS) as the project constitutes a "non-standard flight in controlled airspace", a spokesperson said.

Because Parliament Square sits within restricted airspace, additional approvals are also needed from the Metropolitan Police.

Max Wakefield, who is one of the people working on the project, said the group is "confident it will obtain all necessary permits".

He said the initial crowdfunding target was just £1,000, but this was reached within 24 hours.

The extra cash will now be used to send the balloon on a "world tour" and "haunt" Mr Trump wherever he goes, he added.

I wouldn't get too excited about this event as he will probably arrive late, leave early or not show up at all.

A lot of people will show up to take a better look at the balloon and to mock and boo Trump, and in true Trump fashion, he will say that it's the biggest crowd in London's history to greet an American president. Trump can go somewhere, where 10 people show up to see him, and Trump will say it's the biggest crowd in history.

I wouldn't get too excited by any protests held against president the donald on his coming visit over here. London has a population of over 8 million citizens.

Not everyone in the uk is unhappy at his visit. The vast majority couldn't give a fvck. Yes the millenial snowflakes will get 'offended' 'outraged' and have a meltdown on twatter.

I'm thinking our trustafarian middle/upper class anarchists will see it as a chance to fight the polis, bring london to a standstill. Then wreck some shops which will then mean workers losing wages.

How 'radical' is that?

Oh and there is apparently a crowd fund going on to get a sadiq khan blimp made as well................



"A letter of welcome and apology to Donald Trump ahead of his UK visit from the British silent majority
The British have, in the past, played host to some of the worst monsters in modern history.

Some of the British seem to have conveniently forgotten all that in their outrage at your visit, but some of us realise that there is difference between you and them

"Pub renamed Trump Arms for presidential visit

London pub is being renamed The Trump Arms to celebrate the US president’s visit to the UK next week.

The Jameson pub in Hammersmith will host a welcome party serving Donald Trump’s favourite food and drink. A banner bearing the pub’s temporary new name will be hoisted onto the roof in time for Trump’s arrival and will remain there until he leaves.

Guests will be treated to a BBQ with hot dogs and cheeseburgers, reported to be served up at the White House for the President. These will be washed down with Trump-themed****ails. Costumes, music and banners will help create the atmosphere of a Trump campaign rally.

Landlord Damien Smyth said the two-day welcome party was a chance to show POTUS that he had a big fan club in London, despite threats of mass protests. Tickets cost £32.

“There are many Trump supporters around here who will be happy to see it,” said Irish-born Mr Smyth, whose wife Marian is a New Yorker. “I was talking to regulars who are looking forward to the visit and I said ‘Let’s set up The Trump Arms while he is here’.”

Local Patrick Sullivan volunteered to organise the event. He said: “Trump has kick-started the US economy, bombed evil Assad and disarmed North Korea. It is right that such a key ally of Britain gets a warm welcome and that our country sends a clear message that we value the special relationship.”

Trump supporters including former White House aide Steve Bannon, who is likely to be in London, and former Ukip leader Nigel Farage have been invited. However, Mr Smyth said he doubted Trump himself would drop in. “But you never know, I’ve heard he likes a bit of entrepreneurship,” he said. “I will have a pint of stout ready for him in case.”

^ Well said
I fancy that this is another instance of a bunch of lazy, witless 'artists' gaining access to the media &c, mainly because they are better advised, connected, funded etc than the bulk of the UK population. And that these activists are aided by the currently flawed office of the Mayor of London is deplorable. If the real British workers were to have their say, I reckon that they'd welcome President Trump to the U K. And I'd encourage him to retaliate – perhaps by confining his UK visit, say, to Aberdeen and move the US Embassy to there from its new situation in an unfavourable part of London

The crowd fund for the sadiq khan blimp has just about received what it needs.

Lots of londoners dislike khan intensely. And of course the wealthy 'left wing' who make up london labours members that are momentum also dislike khan.

London isn't really anything to do with me but khan does seem like a useless mayor. Lots of virtue signalling going on with our snowflakes.

Apparently president the donald is coming to Edinburgh as well. OUR snowflakes and virtue signalers will protest.

But there is football on so fvck them all............


"To have a giant size Sadiq Khan, "Baby Khan" balloon fly over London to demonstrate our unhappiness with him as our Mayor of London.

In light of the Donald Trump 'Baby Trump' ballon being allowed to fly over London during his visit to the U.K., let's get a 'baby Khan' one and see if FREE SPEECH applies to all and whether or not Mr Khan and the London assembly will also approve this.

Under Sadiq Khan, we have seen crime sky rocket to unprecedented levels. People in London don't feel safe and they aren't safe, 81 murders this year alone! Khan Out.



Any surplus money raised/any unneeded money for the project will be donated to a charitable cause to be decided by the majority of you.

Of course transparency of all money will be available."

It is most amusing to see the liberal press and their snowflake followers thinking the mass of uk citizens are going to rise up against president the donald. The guardian is having a 'kleenex' moment.

Watch any of the protests against trump over here. The vast majority will be white snowflake students. The rapist socialist workers party (look up rape cover up swp) and many other dafties.

Observers of Britain from overseas ought to acquaint themselves with the realities of living in the U K. Visiting Britain as a tourist, or 'academic' won't show them much of the life of the Common People. The hard-pressed real workers, who are some of the finest people in the world, must contend with having to use as historically a disappointing currency as Sterling, taxes so high that they're near fiscal saturation, the obligation (under Criminal Law) to pay an annual fee for the Licence to watch TV, their effective exclusion from professions as cushy as broadcaster or journalist, their conditioning to defer so much to members of the medical profession that they need to kowtow even to their physician's receptionist and their mission of fascination for the Royal Family and soccer. Many see Donald John Trump as their potential saviour

I'm enjoying all the media attention he's getting and reminding people on these stories that he's a sexual predator.
Honestly though? The trump baby is not enough of a protest, he needs egging and a few bricks chucked at his head, a la protests in the 80s.

More mayors need to say this too (well maybe not that last line as the day has passed now):

"I Magid Magid, Lord Mayor & first citizen of this city hereby declare that not only is Donald J Trump a WASTEMAN, but he is also henceforth banned from the great city of Sheffield!

"I further declare July 13th to be Mexico Solidarity Day!"

He's not even coming to London now, according to the news. He's going to play golf in scotland and it'sgonna cost us taxpayers £5 million quid from our already cut back police force. All the knife crime in London? Not as important as trump and his golf apparently.

All of the UK are unhappy about his visit is what I've read. Fake news. He's got plenty of support in a country that voted overwhelmingly to remove themselves from the EU. I see the left in the UK are like the ones in the states that are also delusional about Trump's popularity. We all know how that played out for them☺ #winning

That Donald John Trump has caused the US Embassy in Israel to be re-situated to Jerusalem and, has disparaged Barack Hussein Obama's placement of the one in the U K to an inauspicious part of London, has rendered him capable of re-siting the latter. And to remove it from anywhere in London, at least for the time-being, would send a serious message to his critics, who seem to have control, for now, of the UK media. Therefore, he should consider moving it as far as possible from the rotten town of London, by taking it to, say, as fresh a part of Scotland as Aberdeen or Wick. The remoter latter, which has eminently affordable property prices and its own fine port and airport, might be the better site. That would learn them, no?

Come to think of it, the President, could with a few telephone calls, come to remind certain countries of how well they are funded with US Aid and how much more secure such an arrangement would be if each were each to move its UK embassy to near the American one. Similarly, he could get the US banks &c that are ensconced in the City of London to 're-locate' to such a part of Scotland too. And, within a week knife-crime ridden, muggy London, with its miserable Mayor and all, could be brought to its knees. And wouldn't that give his administration the practice with which to deal similarly with, say, San Francisco, Seattle and, maybe, Austin TX, Everett WA or Portland OR?

Why do you want my country to be brought to it's knees?

Trump has serious issues, he's a racist, misogynist, liar. No idiot like him will bring this country to it's knees. We're liberal and socialist here, although this government we have right now is similar to Trump but not as loud about it although when it is loud it elaborates in way that people can understand what is said and tell them to eff off and get them sacked.

"I see the left in the UK are like the ones in the states that are also delusional about Trump's popularity. We all know how that played out for them"

>>yeah, HRC won the popular vote by millions more

"Chump could get the US banks in the City of London to pick up and move"

>>he should start with Deutschebank, considering his history with them. American banks, well....

"Speculating what will doom President Donald J. Trump has become a Washington parlor game. British betting companies have been putting odds this summer at better than 50-50 that Trump will not last his first term. Las Vegas has odds at up to 33 percent that the president will be gone by year's end. But for an early exit to occur, whether it be from resignation or impeachment, the much ballyhooed Trump base would have to lose its faith. We're wagering that, when the bling and bluster wear thin and when the sugar high from Twitter tirades has worn off, the pitch forks will be out for our celebrity-in-chief. Trump is a genius self-promoter, but he's a terrible businessman. We bet the facts catch up to him. There are early clues from Trump's time at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Candidate Trump boasted frequently that he was an exemplary student at "the world's best business school." Trump was never enrolled, however, in Wharton's prestigious graduate program. Rather, he was a transfer student in its less-renowned undergraduate program, where his academic record remains a mystery.

While some news outlets have reported that Trump graduated first in his class in 1968, there's no evidence for such claims. We only know that Wharton policy will not confirm that fact, that Trump has declined to release his own records and that the commencement program from that year does not list him as graduating with honors.
Who cares? Three years before Trump graduated from Wharton, a student at Yale named Fred Smith got a "C" for a paper challenging the way delivery of parcels worked in the United States. Smith famously went on to start FedEx and revolutionize an entire industry. No one is suggesting that college professors know how to mentor maverick entrepreneurs."


"But what about Trump? He left two years of undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania to stack up bankruptcies and a stellar list of lawsuits over the years — some 3,500, in fact. Donald Trump's success has been as a reality television star. His record as billionaire and real estate guru is murky at best.
As long as he refuses to release his tax returns, we'll never know how much he's worth, or whether his assets even exceed his liabilities. We do know this: His financial disclosures reveal he owes lenders hundreds of millions of dollars, and for years now, it has been nearly impossible for him to get a loan for any of his real estate ventures.
This ought to be a flashing red light for Americans who know what it's like to apply for a bank loan to buy a car or a house or to pay for healthcare or a child's education. Donald Trump is the poster child for "disqualified" and "denied."

"Deutsche Bank is an exception. The big German bank became Trump's lifeline after U.S. lenders turned against him following a string of hotel and casino bankruptcies in the 1990s. Yet, the relationship has hardly been a harmonious one. In 2008, Trump sued Deutsche Bank in order to win the right to delay paying back an earlier loan. After that, Trump and the commercial real estate division of the bank divorced, as the bank's private wealth management unit that services ultra rich and celebrity clientele took over the relationship. Trump still owes Deutsche Bank at least $130 million. It's all a mess, and there's a pattern. Trump's career is that of a businessman whose options have steadily narrowed over the years. The same may apply today to the president's political fortunes.

Irene, Obama was trying to fvck you up and influence your election by saying he would put the UK on the back burner when it came to trade agreements if they left the eu. No one talks about that.


I do think it's bad we're leaving the EU, not just for the jobs that we've already lost and the ones that are going to go elsewhere but because the EU covers a lot of our rights here also, including workers rights. Gov. have to adhere to those if we stay in the EU, once we leave then they won't be accountable any more.
Nobody in the elite world is going to fk us over unless it benefits them to, they're happy with the global economy right now because so many people are already being exploited and of course losing workers rights will benefit them even more.

I honestly don't expect any country to prioritise us anyway but if we had to be self sufficient here we could be, our food would just be less exotic and our electronics probably inferior and more expensive but they'd still work, probably our meat consumption would have to be restricted also but that doesn't bother me either and i think it's a bonus more than anything else. It could even get the ball rolling for true socialism because we wouldn't be able to afford stuff from abroad either or our credit wouldn't be seen a good enough and so people refuse to trade. The only people this affects really are the rich, are they gonna fk themselves? No.

I have literally zero faith in politics. Our conservatives MPs said leaving the EU would mean less immigrants able to come here to steal our jobs and welfare and it would stop NHS tourists, lol, as if that was the reason why they were underfunding these things. They've already brought in measures to stop people who are non-tax payers from using the NHS, immigrants have to pay to use it even if they're working here and paying tax. And that 350 million a week extra we'd get for the NHS has already turned into a 20 million weekly deficit instead. And we have our own Trump type system for illegal immigrants here where the children are removed but are placed in foster care with families instead of camps. Our MPs are totally capable of fking us over without anyone elses help really.
