Boris caught on video telling cabbie to “f*ck off and die”

Foulmouthed tirade caught on camera

One of the perils of being a politician is saying something in the heat of the moment that you’ll later regret.

And we think Boris Johnson might be in the regretting phase of that specific peril today after a video emerged of the London mayor telling a black cab driver to “f*ck off and die”.

In the video obtained by the Sun, the cab driver shouts to Boris, who is on his bike: “You’re one of them mate. That’s what you are. One of them.”

To which the mayor responds: “Why don’t you f*ck off and die, why don’t you f*ck off and die – and not in that order.”

The cabbie adds, before driving off: “Yeah b*llocks, I hope you die.”

Black cab drivers have longstanding beef with the mayor who they accuse of letting Uber destroy their trade. Since it launched in London, the app has been responsible for putting hundreds of cabbies out of work, they claim.
