The BBC has just put out a statement concerning yesterday's news channels interview with the trader Alessio Rastani.
"We've carried out detailed investigations and can't find any evidence to suggest that the interview with Alessio Rastani was a hoax. He is an independent market trader and one of a range of voices we've had on air to talk about the recession."
The trader told the BBC that he 'goes to bed every night dreaming of another recession"
Not the best way to make friends and influence in the current climate.The corporation has come under fire for airing the remarks and the internet has been ablaze with amazement at the remarks with people believing that the BBC had been the subject of a hoax.
Now that we know that these people really exist,one wonders whether he was actually speaking some sense such as.
The big money and the smart money…they are moving their money away to safer assets and that this economic crisis is like a cancer – if you just wait and wait hoping it’s gonna go away, just like a cancer it’s gonna grow and it’s gonna be too late.
