Tony Devenish AM branded Sadiq Khan the grinch for cancelling London's world-famous New Year's Eve fireworks display.
Speaking to LBC, Mr Devenish called on the Mayor to rethink his decision, telling him "don't be a grinch, Mr Khan, let's get the Night Tube open, let's get the fireworks going and let's enjoy our wonderful city".
He added: "We are now hopefully through Covid and we're all trying to get back to normal.
"Christmas is a great time to celebrate; we all need to get footfall up in central London, business has obviously really suffered and lots and lots of people work in central London, particularly in West End businesses. "This is a great time to get out and enjoy our city over Christmas and the Mayor has been a real misery guts here."
