The Governor of the Bank of England, Sir Mervyn King, speaking in his first-ever live television interview to Channel 4 news, said that he did not contribute to Bob Diamond leaving as the boss of Barclays, saying;
"I didn't fire anybody. I had a conversation which I thought would be helpful to them [Barclays] in understanding how concerned the regulators were."
He refused to confirm if he had confidence in Bob Diamond at that time.
