Gordon Brown today attacked the behaviour of bankers, claiming they had acted outside the values everyday people try to uphold in their daily lives.
The Prime Minister criticised the 'avarice' of the financial sector during an interview with Wall Street financiers in New York this morning.
And he suggested traditional principles such as 'hard work, integrity... being rewarded for hard work' and avoiding 'irresponsible risks' had not been upheld by bankers.
His comments came during a stop-off in the U.S. as he continues a round-the-world trip to garner support for his economic plans ahead of next month's G20 summit.
