A 29 foot giant blimp of Sadiq Khan wearing a yellow 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 Khan yellow bikini blimp comes a month after a similarly huge balloon depicting a spray-tanned Donald Trump in a nappy with a smartphone soared above the capital during his first presidential trip to the UK.
It’s OFFICIAL. The balloon WILL fly. Saturday 09:30am at Parliament Square.

The design of the inflatable – which shows the mayor dressed in a yellow bikini – pokes fun at an early decision in which he banned adverts on the Tube showing a woman in a similar swimsuit.
Yanny Bruere – who describes himself as a “free speech advocate” – has spearheaded a successful campaign to raise money for a 29ft blimp of Mr Khan to hover above Westminster this Saturday.
More than 3,400 people have donated to the cause, which its organiser says is aimed at ensuring the mayor loses his job at the next election in 2020.
The crowdfunding page reads: “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.”
A spokesperson for Sadiq Khan said: “The City Hall ‘city operation’s team’ has spoken with the organisers of this balloon and given permission for them to use the Parliament Square Garden.”
It is thought the balloon will fly over Parliament Square this coming Saturday from 9.30am to 11.30am.
