The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has told people to stop “bashing” the
super-rich, comparing them to hard-pressed minorities like the homeless,
Irish travellers or ex-gang members.

Mr Johnson accused “everyone from the Archbishop of Canterbury to Nick
Clegg” of bullying the group he defined as “zillionaires” – and said the
most rich of all should receive “automatic knighthoods”.
