London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan allows leftist-wing haters to fly 20-foot “Trump baby” blimp over Parliament during Trump visit. Khan insists people are free to protest and he could not act as a “censor.” But his first order of business as London mayor was to censor bathing suits ads on London transit (in accordance with sharia no law, no doubt).

As London mayor one might think, Londoners and Brits would show a modicum of respect to the very country who saved them from the Nazis. Shame on them.

  • Mayor has come under fire over his approval of ‘Trump blimp’ over London
  • Today he insisted people are free to protest and he could not act as a ‘censor’
  • Piers Morgan said he would not have approved an Obama or Clinton balloon

Sadiq Khan has defended his approval of a giant ‘baby Trump’ blimp which will fly above London during a visit by the US President.

The city’s Mayor has come under fire after his Greater London Authority approved plans by protesters to fly the balloon in the centre of London during a demonstration against Mr Trump’s visit.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan today challenged Mr Khan over the issue, suggesting he had approved it because of personal animosity towards Mr Trump.

Mr Khan insisted there is freedom of speech and freedom to protest in the UK and he could not act as a ‘censor’.

He said: ‘My views are irrelevant. The issue is ‘Do they have freedom to protest, freedom to assemble and should they be allowed to do so? If it’s peaceful and it’s safe they should.’

Morgan asked the mayor if he would have endorsed a giant black baby blimp of Barack Obama in protest during his presidency, or an image depicting Mr Khan as a pig despite that being offensive to Muslims.

Mr Khan said: ‘If it’s peaceful and if it’s safe. Look, I can’t be the censor. It’s not for me to decide what’s in good taste or bad taste.’

The 20ft (6m) high inflatable, dubbed ‘Trump baby’, has been granted permission to rise above Parliament Square Gardens for two hours on Friday morning.

Mr Khan said he supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority, adding that it was not for him to be a ‘censor’.

Mr Khan and the American leader have engaged in a long-running war of words over issues like crime and terrorism.

Morgan said it was ‘utterly ironic and weird’ that there could be bigger protests around Mr Trump’s visit than during trips to the UK by the leaders of countries with questionable human rights records including Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

A rival crowdfunding campaign says it is raising cash for a blimp of Mr Khan to fly over London

It is believed that more than 50,000 take to the streets of the capital to protest against the President’s visit.

Meanwhile, a 200-metre crop circle displaying the words ‘f*** Trump’ in Russian has been mown into a field of wheat near the Prime Minister’s country home of Chequers.

Mr Trump’s schedule will largely keep him out of central London and it seems unlikely that the US president will come close enough to Westminster to see the blimp.

Mr Trump will visit Blenheim Palace, Windsor Castle, Whitfield House and Chequers

He will arrive in the UK on board Air Force One on Thursday afternoon, straight from the Nato summit in Brussels, and will carry out a series of engagements on Friday before heading to Scotland for the weekend.

But Mr Khan said it was important that the UK could be ‘candid’ with the US as a close ally, saying ‘that’s how special relationships work’.

Upwards of 10,000 police officers will be deployed to keep the US commander-in-chief and his wife Melania away from trouble during his visit.

Meanwhile US Navy carrier, the gigantic USS Harry S Truman, has docked in the south coast, where the £70million Osprey aircraft will be stationed on high alert during the trip.

It is understood the he crop circle and was designed by activists to be seen by the US President as he flies by helicopter to Theresa May’s country house.

Photographer Henry Matthews, 33, spotted the enormous crop circle in a field in Stoke Mandeville, Aylesbury, Bucks, and flew a drone at 400ft to take a picture.
