Questions arise for the security of our Prime Minister, who seems to be easily approached by anyone at or inside the parades, in which a Kurdish protester leapt out in front of Boris Johnson’s Jaguar car today as he left the Houses of Parliament, before a security vehicle following behind collided with the Prime Minister’s vehicle.
An activist from a group demonstrating outside Parliament’s gates in Westminster ran towards Mr Johnson’s Jaguar XJ Portfolio V8 LWB Auto this afternoon as his convoy left following Prime Minister’s Questions.Video footage showed how the middle-aged man managed to break through a group of police at the last minute as the car drove out – and was only brought down at the very last minute by an unarmed female officer.

The vehicles then drove off, with a dent visible in the back of Mr Johnson’s £54,000 car.The protester, who had been demonstrating about Turkey’s operation against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq, was taken into the Palace of Westminster by Metropolitan Police officers in the immediate aftermath.
Police officers urged the gathered crowds to stay back and a further police van was on the scene within seconds to help detain the man, who was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and obstructing the highway.
