King Eyes Parting Shot at Bankers Gearing Up for Carney

Bank of England Governor Mervyn King will return to the scene of some of his most acidic public encounters today for the annual occasion that helped define his relationship with Britain’s banking industry.

King will speak for the 10th time at the Mansion House, less than 400 feet from the BOE’s doors in the City of London, as the capital’s financial district is known. His appearance at the event for bankers alongside Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne occurs just days before he cedes his role to former Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney.
