Boris Johnson Heckled By Protesting Cabbies


Mayor of London Boris Johnson has been forced out of the London Assembly chamber after being heckled by protesting taxi drivers.
The cabbies were protesting over a range of issues, including the introduction of electric vehicles and increasing competition from Uber.
Boris Johnson had to leave the chamber and suspend Mayor's Question Time due to the protest, tweeting later: "Vital Londoners see democratic process in action but behaviour of some cabbies at MQTs today undermines that.
"Also shocked that 3 City Hall security staff hurt following suspension of Mayor's Question Time - no excuse for violence."
Footage of the meeting showed Mr Johnson attempting to answer a question but being shouted down by protesters in the public gallery.
