Robert Peston started out as journalist and ended up being the man who pointed out our tumbling fall into recession. Robert revealed that the Northern Rock had approached the Bank of England for emergency help, which set off a long chain of economic events and in turn lead to the economic recession in 2009.
Peston claims that Labour 'glorified the City and put all the Nation's economic eggs into one dangerous basket of fizzy finance.' He also published a book named 'Brown's Britain' which was described as 'a book of unusual political significance.'
Robert Peston is certainly an interesting character, with his scoop on the Northern Rock and controversial outlooks. This is largely reflected in his speaking and his witty persona.
