"Supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies" eject London Mayor from budget talks
London's Mayor hits out at coalition of Assembly Members who try to win a vote on the budget through dirty tactics
The London Assembly, Britain's capital's chamber of representatives whose job it is to scrutinise London's directly elected Mayor threw away its chance to give Boris Johnson a two hour grilling on his budget decisions this morning.
The mayor, it has been reported, was ejected from the chamber after a vote by Assembly Members to turf him out.
Boris called the gathered Assembly members 'great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies' before he left.
Assembly Members booted the Mayor out when they thought there was a chance of voting down his budget, but a Conservative Assembly Member who missed the start of the meeting turned up in time to deny Labour, the Libera Democrats and the Greens the two thirds majority they needed.
