'Boris blimp' at London rally as thousands march against Brexit

Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation two months ago after failing to win parliamentary approval for the exit deal she had negotiated with Brussels and her successor will be announced next week.

The marchers were also holding various banners and placards reading: "Stop Brexit" and "Remain, Reform, Revolt" as well as "We are together for Europe".

Recent figures suggest Mr Johnson's fanbase has expanded since the beginning of the four-week leadership campaign where he has been pitted against current foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt.

The image was a reference to Johnson's infamous claim about European Union funds that would be redirected to the UK's National Health Service (NHS) after Brexit, which critics said was a misuse of statistics.

Boris Johnson, a leadership candidate for Britain's Conservative Party, leaves offices in central in London, Britain, July 19, 2019.

Organisers have arranged for two blimps of Johnson and Brexit party leader Nigel Farage to fly through London with the march - echoing a similar "Trump baby" inflatable effigy of the United States president when he visited in June. The victor of the leadership contest will be announced on Tuesday.

"We would travel up to Northern Ireland and go through a military checkpoint where you had guns pointed at you", Benson said, referring to the 30-year conflict in Northern Ireland known as the Troubles, which formally ended with the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

"It's unsellable as it is at the moment, no Tory party member has been able to sort it out. Put Brexit in the bin, set the bin alight!" he said.

"This should be a democratic campaign, people should make a free decision in a second referendum", Nolan says. Given that I've been in the cabinet since Theresa May came to power, I think the appropriate thing is for me to resign to her'. We get along well.
