Boris Johnson's October trade mission to China was just another trip "for Boris and his boys club to make deals with the super-rich for the super-rich", Baroness Jenny Jones has said.
Mr Johnson's trip to China in October cost over £65,000 as the Mayor attempted to attract fresh investment to the capital.
"This is yet another trip for Boris and his boys club to make deals with the super-rich for the super-rich," Baroness Jenny Jones, Green member of the London Assembly, told HuffPostUK.
"The Mayor has encouraged Chinese businessmen to buy up homes and even a chunk of Crystal Palace Park, widening the power and wealth gap between the wealthiest and the vast majority of Londoners.”
A spokesperson for the Mayor defended the cost of the trip, claiming London has benefited from numerous investment deals as a result.
