Spot On, Robert Peston!

Here’s a novel idea, let the Public Sector live within its means!

BBC Business Editor, Robert Peston

Robert Peston is the BBC’s Business Editor. I’ve read his Blog and listened to him on the Beeb for many years now. His latest Blog article hits the bulls-eye.

The smart solution would be to somehow depoliticise what’s known as fiscal consolidation, or the process of cutting spending and raising taxes such that the public sector can again live within its means.


A public sector that seeks not to burden society but to benefit it should not be an issue of party politics.

Well said, Mr P.
