Frankfurt has been persuing this agenda for a number of years with little success, but now it may be able to do so through spuriously crafted regulation.

Losing the City will mean losing a very large source of exmployment and tax revenue so Bottler Brown needs to act like Europe does when it does not like legislation that will mean loss of tax/jobs and ignore it.
