Watered down rules led to 'absurd' escape of suspect

Boris Johnson has described the escape of a terror suspect in West London as "absurd". London's Mayor blamed coalition politics for watering down the control order system.

Plainly they are not working in the way we would like them to work in the sense that this guy Mohamed was able to flee in absurd circumstances and there must be questions about whether we should be tougher in the way we administer these things.

If a fellow can get into a burka and evade his invigilators in the way that Mr Mohamed has done, then we clearly need to look at how it is working.

– Boris Johnson, speaking to LBC 97.3
