Students at Boris Johnson’s former Oxford college have launched a petition which demands that he is barred from campus.

The Balliol College students behind the petition also called for a ban on the display of any portraits of the Prime Minister on the site.

Mr Johnson, who studied Classics at the college, should be stripped of his alumnus privileges “immediately,” the petition states.

The petition calls on the college to publicly condemn the Tory leader for suspending Parliament and stop him from attending any of its events.

Harriet Lester, a Phd student, began the petition with fellow student Andrew MacGowans, after meeting at a protest rally in the city.

"We call upon its members to sign this petition in order to to put pressure on college administration to take definitive action in this matter.".

The Prime Minister studied classics at Balliol College in the 1980s and was also a member of the controversial Bullingdon dining club at the time. »

Olivia Jackson, who performed stunts for Milla Jovovich's character, Alice, says the September 2015 crash was the result of producers "elevating financial considerations over safety.".

She says producers had misled her into believing that their insurance would cover any injuries sustained during filming and resulting losses, but it only paid out $33,000.

"She had already secured the role of stunt double for a leading cast member in Wonder Woman, and didn't need the work.". »
