Boris Johnson has accused British workers of "sloth" and blamed a culture of "easy gratification" for the UK's economic woes.

Writing in the The Telegraph, for which he earns around £5,000 for each weekly column, Johnson said voters were partly responsible for the country falling behind rival European nations, like Germany.

The Mayor of London said: "We would have to recognise that most of our problems are not caused by "Bwussels", but by chronic British short-termism, inadequate management, sloth, low skills, a culture of easy gratification and under-investment in both human and physical capital and infrastructure."

Britain had failed to measure up to the top performers on the continent for decades, he claimed.
