London mayor Boris Johnson tells Barnet GLA member Andrew Dismore to 'get stuffed' at City Hall debate
Barnet’s GLA member Andrew Dismore was told to “get stuffed” by the Mayor of London during a heated debate over fire station closures at City Hall.
Boris Johnson blurted the remark as Labour’s Mr Dismore accused him of “lying” over his plans for fire station closures across the capital.
Mayor Johnson plans to shut down ten fire stations, resulting in the loss of 14 fire engines and more than 550 jobs.
Mr Dismore said the mayor had lied to the people of London about the impact the cuts would have.
But Mr Johnson reacted angrily before quickly widrawing the remark, claiming it had “just slipped out”.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union staged a protest outside City Hall before today’s Mayor’s Question Time and Mr Johnson was heckled by firefighters in the public gallery throughout the discussion.
