WHAT A BALOON: Sadiq Khan ‘Forced’ GLA to approve Trump baby blimp

SADIQ Khan has been accused of forcing the Greater London Authority to approve the controversial Trump blimp during the U.S. President’s Visit to the United Kingdom this summer.

Guido Fawkes revealed that: “The GLA initially rejected the proposal outright, only reversing their decision after a concerted campaign from Sadiq’s closest advisers including his Director of Communications Patrick Hennessey.”

The “Trump Baby” balloon joins demonstrators as they march through Parliament Square in London, as part of the protests against the visit of US President Donald Trump to the UK.

Following the publication of an article in the Guardian by the organiser imploring Sadiq to “Let Trump baby fly”, several of Sadiq Khan’s top team including senior advisers Leah Kreitzman, Nick Bowes and Patrick Hennessey exchange a number of emails where they prepare lines on how to reopen the decision process around approving the blimp.

Numerous emails between Sadiq’s top team show that this was not a simple bureaucratic decision by the GLA but in fact a last-minute reversal of the original decision following a concerted campaign to change it reported Guido.
