Boris slams BoE over 'moral case' for banking

In an interview with The Times, he argued too few people were defending banking as "a vitally important function doing things that are crucial for enterprise in this city".

Meanwhile, Mr Johson uses his Daily Telegraph piece today to argue David Cameron should be more like Margaret Thatcher and reject calls for an increase to the European Union's budget.
