The BBC's financial analyst Robert Peston has been suspended by the BBC after a massive hissy fit was captured live on the 10 o'clock news.
After giving a report about the latest balance of payment figures, Peston was heard to say to a colleague: "Have you seen the f*****g BBC News website? It's absolute sh*te. Where do they get this 'Stephanomics' idea from? She's just a 'kin' hoe if you ask me. I was here first and it should have been 'Pestonomics.' It's just nepotism gone bonkers. Just because she has connections. 'Pestonomics' has a real ring to it. 'Stephanomics' just sucks. Oh sh*t is this mic still on....?"
Speaking to reporters outside his home last night, Peston said: "Errrrrm. This is just. A little local difficulty. Aaaaaaaaaand I fully expect. Errrrrm. To be back on normal aaahhhhhhh duty. Aaaaaaah fairly errrrm ah soon."
Stephanie Flanders commented later: "It's just that I've got tits and he hasn't. When it comes to climbing the career ladder, tits are very handy. Do you want to see them....?"
