Ex-London Mayor Ken Livingstone blasted for holding up tube by ramming his foot in the door


KEN Livingstone has been caught sticking his foot in a tube door holding up the other passengers.

The former London Mayor was then confronted by a furious member of staff, who told him you should know better.

Ken Livingstone puts his foot in it

Mr Livingstone, whose former role saw him in charge of the London Underground, held up a service for two minutes at Willesden Junction in north west London.

In a furious confrontation, he said: You’re trying to push me over. Open and let me get on. Let me get on”.

The exasperated TFL staffer responded: Ken Livingstone you should know better than this.

Red Ken was accused of delaying other people getting to work in a hilarious social media post.

A Twitter user at the scene said: Ken Livingstone decided to hold up our train because he purposely stuck his foot in when the door was blatantly closing.

Now Im going to be late for work.

He absolutely should know better there was a train literally behind waiting at a halt because of his f***ry.

The former leader of the Greater London Council had his face partially covered by a scarf in the video, but was still recognisable.

The video was also posted by Conservative party chairman James Cleverly.

He said: Please do not share this video of Ken Livingstone shouting at a member of TfL staff and delaying people getting to work.

Twitter was quick to make fun of the 74-year-old, with a flurry of jokes about his numerous gaffes and remarks.

One said: Ken puts his foot in it again.

Another joked: One tube worker speaks for a nation.

Mr Livingstone was mayor of London from 2000 to 2008, and quit the Labour Party last year after being accused of anti-Semitism.

After the embarrassing incident, Mr Livingstone said “it happens”.

He continued: “You often get caught by the doors closing on you.

“But I have never in all my life using the Tube not known the driver to immediately open the door.”
