Sir Mick Jagger has taken a cheeky swipe at the mayor of Toronto, Canada over an ongoing drugs scandal. Rob Ford, who was elected to the prestigious post in 2010, is under pressure to quit amid allegations he has been photographed smoking crack cocaine. The scandal has gripped headlines in the region since it blew up earlier this month (May13), and the mischievous Rolling Stones frontman could not resist making a gag about the issue when the band swung into town for a concert on Saturday (25May13). Jagger told the audience, "We're not going to do any jokes tonight about the mayor. It's much too easy a target. It's a big cheap shot. We're going to crack on with the show." Ford has denied any wrongdoing.
