Credit Crunch or Monetary Meltdown

Ok, ok! My hands are up!

I know that as a member of the media I have no leg to stand on when complaining about the incessant flood of credit crunch news. I’m the first to admit that my trade is seriously culpable of pouring petrol onto the financial turmoil that we’re in.

That said, the prospect of having to face the nauseating voice of BBC Economics Editor Robert Peston on a daily basis is surely more punishment than any hack deserves! Assuming that I’m not forced to cancel my broadband contract due to rising inflation (4.7 percent! Ridiculous), I’ll be sticking to his blog as my main source of economic revelations.
