I was slightly shocked not
to see Robert Peston appear on the BBC 10 o’clock news this week.
I wondered if he had been given some time off following what seemed to be a 24/7 schedule, appearing on every BBC bulletin going.
But according to his blog, he’s actually in China at the moment.
He makes an interesting point regarding the futures of the millions of Chinese workers now unable to secure jobs as a result of the global economic downturn.
Will this turn out to be a “social disaster in the making” as he predicts?
