It wasn’t me

The BBC\'s business guru Robert Peston faced the Treasury Select Committee about his role in the banking crisis last week.

The man who could make an outbreak of flu sound as catastrophic as the Black Death was facing questions over the part he played in the run on Northern Rock in September 2007.

Asked whether he felt he had caused the run on the bank, Peston replied, “I have obviously given a lot of thought to this question, and the answer is no.”

So there you have it.
