My Beautiful Balloon






My Beautiful Balloon

The balloon making industry is showing a significant upsurge.
After laying off over 200 workers less than a year ago
there has been a turnaround
with retail outlets showing high demand for the product.
The industry believes the Trump Blimp,
floated during the American President’s visit,
followed in recent days
by the proposed floating of the Sadiq Khan bikini clad blimp,
has contributed to the rise in demand.
A trend for bespoke life sized blimps,
not merely for protest,
but for cultural events and big family occasions
such as weddings and baptisms,
has pushed business up by 60%.
The sector is ballooning.

When and where to see the Sadiq Khan balloon and why the blimp shows the mayor in a yellow bikini
