Johnson Rejects Safety Concerns Of Fire Safety Panel
Video has emerged of then-London Mayor Boris Johnson defending his cuts to fire services in London before a fire-safety panel of London Assembly Members.
When challenged to explain how cutting fire stations, firefighter positions, fire safety officers could possibly not put the lives of London residents at risk, Johnson at first tries to defend the indefensible by simply asserting that his recklessness works and improves safety.
Then, when challenged further, he tells a Labour AM,
Oh get stuffed.
Johnson was warned from all sides. The Tories were warned from all sides. The failure to take these caution into consideration has been a key cause behind the huge number of building fires across the UK.
