The London Mayor and Conservative MP Boris Johnson, has been filmed swearing in a colourful way at a London Taxi Driver.
The altercation took place on the 5th of June.
The driver is heard to say to Boris:
“You’re one of them mate. That’s what you are, one of them”
To which Boris replied
“Why don’t you f##k off and die, why don’t you f##k off and die….but not in that order”
“I don’t suppose that the cabbie went home that night and cried himself to sleep.”
CALM DOWN BORIS!
The onlooker, who filmed the row on his iPhone, said that Boris looked “furious” as he cycled off after the exchange.
The man, who does not want to be named, said: “Maybe if he is going to be the next Prime Minister he should calm things down a bit.”
The video was obtained by the Sun news paper. A source close to the Mayor (hello Angelina) said it’s a lot of fuse about nothing as the driver regularly heckles Boris at City Hall meetings.
The Daily Mail put out an appeal earlier this week to try to get the driver involved in the altercation to come forward.
Surely Boris should be telling Uber to f##k off!
and not a hard working London Taxi driver.
But then was he talking just to just the one driver, or to the whole Trade?
There’s no dressing this up, this was disgusting behaviour from the London Mayor and member of Parliament for Uxbridge.
I was very surprised at the seemingly easy ride afforded Boris by the General Secretary of the LTDA in light of the current struggle the trade is facing at the hands of Boris and TfL.
IS THIS BORISGATE?
If it was right for Andrew Mitchell to resign as chief whip, for calling a police officer a pleb, then how is Boris telling a London Taxi driver to f##k off and die (twice) acceptable?
