Pro-EU Protest Hoists 'Boris Blimp'

Opponents of Britain’s exit from the EU hoisted a blimp Saturday, portraying Boris Johnson as a crying child.

According to Reuters, they hoisted the 'Boris blimp' while demonstrating outside parliament.

The balloon featured Johnson in a t-shirt emblazoned with a red bus and the figure 350 million pounds.

That refers to his promise of clawing back cash from Brussels to spend on Britain’s state health service instead.
