Robert Peston

12 Feb 2018

Over the past couple of years we’ve all had moments of asking ourselves: WTF? Now two of Britain’s top political analysts are on hand to help us answer that question.

In his book WTF?, Robert Peston, ITV’s political editor, asks whether it’s possible to make a success of leaving the EU; what lessons should be learned from the Grenfell Tower tragedy; whether robots can be prevented from taking our jobs; and how to fix the widening gap between rich and poor. He talks to Polly Toynbee about what has gone bad, and provides a manifesto for putting at least some of it right.
