Boris Johnson has called on the Chancellor to hand massive financial powers to cities to help “detoxify” British politics.

The mayor of London said Westminster was going through a “very rocky period” and devolution would help to “electrify ” the political scene.

Speaking at the Brookings Institution in Washington DC, Mr Johnson insisted the Treasury had “nothing to fear” from reforms – and insisted such a move would have had the support of Winston Churchill.
