-Update- More highlights from the transcript:
Boris Johnson: I don't think it behoves you or your committee to cast aspersions on the preparations made by the boroughs or by a lot of hardworking people across London
Graham Stringer: I don't want to put words in your mouth. There's been a lot of those already. But can you tell us if you took any action between getting the notice of this snow and the actual snow starting to fall late on Sunday? I don't want absurd answers about trying to repel snowflakes. Did you call people together? There's been some criticism from the people who've already looked at this from the GLA that….
BJ: Well I don't think there have actually. I don’t think there have. You're talking complete tripe
Chair: Would you let Mr Stringer put his question
GS: …that there was poor coordination between boroughs
BJ: Complete tripe. Nonsense. Bollocks. Nonsense
Eric Martlew: Sorry, what was that word?
GS: I would be grateful if you could tell us whether you made any attempts to engage emergency powers, to coordinate the action of the boroughs, to talk to the bus companies, with your strategic role as the leader of transport in Greater London, to ensure that we had the best possible outcome from this event?
BJ: I know what you're trying to do and I understand why you're trying to do it and I respect the narrow, partisan, political reasons why you're trying to do it. The answer is that I did repose complete confidence in my officials and in Transport for London to get the job done and to their best of their ability they did
Peter Soulsby: The fact is, something very exceptional in view of weather conditions was predicted for the capital and you have given us not a single example of anything at all that you did to prepare for it
Boris Johnson: Well I think that's absolute tripe and I'm under obligation to leave
Eric Martlew: Can I ask a partisan question?
BJ: No, because I'm off. (stands up, picks up bag, walks towards exit)
Chair: Mayor, that is unacceptable to walk out in the middle of a question. Would you please let Mr Martlew ask a question
BJ: (returning, still standing) Mr Martlew asked if he can ask a partisan question
Chair: Mayor, I do understand that you have a time limit and I have agreed with that. Mr Martlew, could you ask a quick question and the Mayor will be able to answer?
EM: I understand you're going to leave Mr Hendy to answer the hard questions when you go Mr Mayor but the question is..
BJ: Are you saying none of your colleagues have asked hard questions? I think that's an insult to your colleagues
EM: Before you went to bed, did you make enquiries about what was happening that night? And at what time did you wake up and were you informed there was a major problem?
BJ: Well, as Peter has already said, I think he contacted me shortly after six and I think I replied before 7 o'clock in the morning
EM: So you didn't make enquiries that night to see if there was an issue?
BJ: I observed that it had started to snow
EM: But you didn't make any enquiries?
BJ: Oh for god's sake, goodbye (walks out)
Dear oh dear. Journalists knocking his record and politicians asking him questions? This isn't what he signed up for now was it?
