Rock manager Malcolm McLaren was threatened by two vicious thugs when he ran for Mayor of London in 2000.

The former SEX PISTOLS svengali, 60, briefly ran for the local government post, but pulled out due to the huge cost of funding his campaign.

McLaren says, "It costs a fortune to do those things.

"Meanwhile, my dustbins (trash cans) were turned over every other day for stuff.

"I went to Sky News for a Sunday programme and two skinheads followed me into the toilets and pinned me against the wall. They said, 'You're not serious about going through with this... I don't think you could be, because an awful lot of serious things could happen if you go any further."
