Boris Johnson told London Assembly to `get stuffed`
[Published on 12 Sep 2013]
"Boris Johnson has told a London Assembly member to `get stuffed` during an increasingly angry exchange over the impact of fire service cuts. The Mayor of London was being questioned when he lost his cool and fired off the remark to Andrew Dismore."
"`How can cutting fire engines, fire fighters posts not be a reduction in fire cover?` Dismore demanded."
"`Because we're improving cover - As I've said several times,` he replied as the rest of the Assembly groaned."
"It was when Dismore said that the Mayor had `lied to the people of London` that the insult was fired off."
"Mr Johnson was immediately urged to apologise which he did although he couldn't remember the Assembly member's name."
"Fire service plans are looking to close 10 stations and cut over 500 posts in London."
