Britannia's New Baby Balloon Precedent

There is one aspect of the “Trump Baby” bal­loon busi­ness that the British gov­ern­ment in gen­eral and Mayor Kahn in par­tic­u­lar is miss­ing and/​or ignoring.

One of the things about a for­eign lead­ers ANY for­eign lead­ers, is there is invari­ably a group of peo­ple who are angry with them.

Maybe they are oppres­sive at home, maybe they are block­ing British busi­nesses maybe an indi­vid­ual cit­i­zen was mis­treated, maybe they have the wrong posi­tion on X Y or Z, what­ever the rea­son in a pop­u­la­tion of nearly 70 mil­lion peo­ple it likely isn’t hard to find 1,000 to 10,000 peo­ple who strongly object to any given leader at any given time.

And now those thou­sand to ten thou­sand peo­ple will see the Trump Baby bal­loon fly­ing dur­ing his state visit and then demand some­thing sim­i­lar when the leader they dis­like comes, more­over just as Trump’s ene­mies in Eng­land and the US are happy to fund this insult there will always be ene­mies of any given leader at home or abroad who will be more than happy to pro­vide the fund­ing to do the same and when they are denied the law­suits will be interesting.

Now I’m sure that the gov­ern­ment that is hold­ing Tommy Robin­son for dar­ing to report on a story is not likely to be moved by demands that they be con­sis­tent on free­dom of speech but it will be an embar­rass­ment and will prove once again that Don­ald Trump has the uncanny knack of caus­ing bad peo­ple pre­tend­ing to be hon­est and hon­or­able to show their true col­ors for all the world to see.

The irony of course is with an econ­omy the envy of the world, a mil­i­tary that is pil­ing up suc­cesses and his ene­mies at home mak­ing fools of them­selves, while Trump might tweet about the bal­loon baby (to his advan­tage of course) he doesn’t really give a damn about it. But it will be inter­est­ing to see what hap­pens when a for­eign leader who might actu­ally give a damn about this kind of insult comes to Britain and faces it.

There is still time for Britain to avoid this non­sense but I doubt any­one in Her Majesty’s gov­ern­ment left with the for­ti­tude, insight or the incli­na­tion to do so.

Update: Piers Mor­gan to Mayor Kahn:

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.’

If you believe that, then mil­lions of Niger­ian email spam­mers are dying to make your acquaintance.

There is one aspect of the “Trump Baby” balloon business that the British government in general and Mayor Kahn in particular is missing and/or ignoring.

One of the things about a foreign leaders ANY foreign leaders, is there is invariably a group of people who are angry with them.

Maybe they are oppressive at home, maybe they are blocking British businesses maybe an individual citizen was mistreated, maybe they have the wrong position on X Y or Z, whatever the reason in a population of nearly 70 million people it likely isn’t hard to find 1,000 to 10,000 people who strongly object to any given leader at any given time.

And now those thousand to ten thousand people will see the Trump Baby balloon flying during his state visit and then demand something similar when the leader they dislike comes, moreover just as Trump’s enemies in England and the US are happy to fund this insult there will always be enemies of any given leader at home or abroad who will be more than happy to provide the funding to do the same and when they are denied the lawsuits will be interesting.

Now I’m sure that the government that is holding Tommy Robinson for daring to report on a story is not likely to be moved by demands that they be consistent on freedom of speech but it will be an embarrassment and will prove once again that Donald Trump has the uncanny knack of causing bad people pretending to be honest and honorable to show their true colors for all the world to see.

The irony of course is with an economy the envy of the world, a military that is piling up successes and his enemies at home making fools of themselves, while Trump might tweet about the balloon baby (to his advantage of course) he doesn’t really give a damn about it.  But it will be interesting to see what happens when a foreign leader who might actually give a damn about this kind of insult comes to Britain and faces it.

There is still time for Britain to avoid this nonsense but I doubt anyone in Her Majesty’s  government left with the fortitude, insight or the inclination to do so.

Update:  Piers Morgan to Mayor Kahn:

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.’  

If you believe that, then millions of Nigerian email spammers are dying to make your acquaintance.
