Labour's candidate for Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, has attacked Boris Johnson for having 35 meetings with bankers and others from the financial services sector between October 2009 and October 2010.

Livingstone says:

These latest figures show that bankers, not the majority of Londoners, are the Mayor' priority.

Really? We can all judge for ourselves as the Mayor's key engagements are listed in the Mayor's report to the London Assembly each month before Mayor's Question Time. Is it not in the interests of Londoner's that he should negotiate sponsorship from Barclays for cycle hire? Or secure donations for the Mayor's Fund for London, which helps disadvantaged youngsters? Or encourage JP Morgan to create 10,000 new jobs in Tower Hamlets?

Would Ken Livingstone like to explain exactly which of these meetings he objects to?
