Boris Johnson Just Said What All Cyclists Secretly Want To Say To Cabbies, And It Wasn’t Pretty…

You may like Boris Johnson or you may not. Either way, most people will admit that the floppy-haired Mayor of London is often pretty good for a laugh.

One thing the politician does have going for him is that he’s a well-known cyclist, but it seems even he’s not above the rage that ensues after a driving dickhead starts mouthing off on the roads.

The video below comes from Friday June 5th, and shows Boris telling a black cab driver what the majority of cyclists will have felt the need to tell a black cab driver at one time or another – “why don’t you fuck off and die – and not in that order”.

The emphatic suggestion from the 51-year-old mayor came after the driver accused him of letting down the black cab industry by failing to control the alternative, ever-popular and distinctly cheaper car-booking app Uber.

The black cab driver can be heard shouting: “you’re one of them mate. That’s what you are. One of them,” before Boris retorts, and draws the imaginative comeback: “Yeah bollocks, I hope you die,” from the cabbie.

The unnamed man who filmed the confrontation on his iPhone joked that Boris looked ‘furious’, saying: “Maybe if he is going to be the next Prime Minister he should calm things down a bit.”

What do we think? Well, given that commuting on a bike is pretty much a never-ending battle against cab drivers, it’s never too troubling for us to see one told to “fuck off” by a cyclist. Whoever that cyclist may be.
