Did Boris Threaten Bikers?

1109_boris.jpg Another D-lock in mouth moment from the Mayor yesterday evening, after he was caught on film apparently threatening to axe motorcycle access to bus lanes. Boris was wobbling round a congested Trafalgar Square when he approached a group of bikers from the No to Bike Parking Tax group, who were protesting about roadside parking charges introduced by Westminster council. Clearly irked, a glowering Mayor growls: "Do you want to stay in the bus lanes or not? Then stop this protest". Doing irreparable damage to their toughened reputation, the bikers have released a short video clip of the incident, and claim that the Mayor was using "threatening behaviour" toward them. Watch the video at the BBC.
