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.” Protest pong: Street artist’s mucky campaign against Liz Truss is fake poos
