Robert Peston: increasingly bizarre on air

I’m becoming concerned for the sanity of BBC News’s business editor Robert Peston. Propelled into the spotlight on an almost daily basis by the so-called ‘credit crunch”, the poor bloke’s on-screen performances are becoming increasingly bizarre.

Yes, he did well by breaking the Northern Rock scoop, but his once marginal physical Tourette’s has now escalated into full-blown gurning and twitching, punctuated by barks of inappropriate laughter. It’s like watching a marionette being manipulated by the former chief sub-editor of the Hartlepool Mail.
