Tempers flare at Boris’ Question Time
19th November 2014

Tempers flared during Mayor's question time earlier.

Boris Johnson lost his cool at city hall while being challenged on a proposal to cut funding for youth projects in the capital.

The Labour Assembly member Andrew Dismore was told where to stick his comments on the subject, in an unusual event of Boris Johnson getting hot under the collar. The Mayor was also asked for an update by Lib Dem member Caroline Pidgeon on plans for a cycle super highway. He said that he will only support a solution that will suit the capital’s economy and traffic. Boris also spoke on the London Living Wage, as the office of National Statistics released new figures that show a huge disparity in wages earned across the city.

Unsurprisingly residents Chelsea and Kensington earn the most. More surprisingly, Tower Hamlets came in as the second highest-earning borough. The Mayor supports the wage, however he specified that he doesn’t believe in it being compulsory.
