Boris Johnson vs Angry Cabbie

BORIS Johnson took questions from all comers outside Waitrose in Finchley Road yesterday – including an angry cab driver who wanted us to stop going on about all these cyclists and ask when’s a cyclist going to pay for a cycle lane? When are they going to put their hands in their pockets? Boris ummed that a cyclist’s taxes helped foot the bill.

    Maybe you missed a bit of the proceedings one awkward cabbie asking a question on his favourite gripe was no match for the other 5 or 6 who cheered Boris’s arrrival at the taxi rank or those who honked waved and cheared Boris as they drove past.

    Time for a little balanced reporting don’t you think?

    Kens very dead meat, won’t a tenner on it or will you whimp out of a decent bet?

    C’mon Osser put your money where your pen is!

    Sore Arms: Watch out, you sound more and more like Nigel Rumble every day…

    No bet for me though, you’d have to give me 50-1 on that tenner. Still, you all had money on Chris Philp to win in 2010 didn’t you?


  3. Did somebody ask Boris about the price of a pint of milk???
