A street performer stinks in protest at Liz Truss by placing fake poop along a seafront promenade – with the Prime Minister’s name on a flag planted in each of them.
he artist of Mr Browne fame began his protest on the promenade in Southsea, Hampshire, after the post-government mini-budget financial crisis unfolded.
Mr Browne started making the fake dirt – from cornmeal, ketchup and soy sauce – and secretly planted it in key spots along the seafront, drawing smiles and laughter from passers-by.
He told the PA news agency: “After three years of Boris as Prime Minister, I believed things could not get any worse.
“Then Liz Truss showed up and I realized how wrong I was. It was like she jumped out of his butt to bring even more doom and gloom to our land.
“I had to act. What could I do? Write to my local MP? Standing in front of Downing Street with a placard? Buy a spray can and smear my dissatisfaction on the wall?
“No, I decided I had to fight with a weapon few would dare to wield: Poo. Dog poop to be exact.
“I wanted to highlight the shitty situation that Liz Truss left the country in while eliciting a few smiles.
“You heard about a protest song. Well, that’s a protest pong. My friend pointed out that this isn’t fake news, it’s fake poop.
“With a handful of cocktail sticks and a dozen postage-stamp-sized Liz Truss signs, I decided to put a sign with Liz Truss’ name in every single dog poo I found.
“Unfortunately, dog poop was harder to come by than I thought, so I went back to plan B.
“With the support of my 13-year-old daughter, we took matters into our own hands and built a handmade dog poop assembly line.
“My daughter is a natural crafter and sculpted each poo with an artistic flourish using a piping bag.
“My daughter has also started changing the recipe daily — adding a spoonful of cinnamon to give it some flavor, a touch of oregano for texture, or cooking oil to give it a glossy coating.”
Mr Browne’s wife said: “I came down to make breakfast in the morning and found a bunch of brown shit drying on the kitchen counter.
“At first I blamed the cat until my husband informed me they were part of a project he was working on with my daughter.”
Mr Browne added: “We have decided to continue our poo project until Liz Truss crawls back from where she came from.”
One walker said after spotting one of the fake poo: “That’s spot on.”
