There was a time when Paxo was instant stuffing and Pesto was an Italian sauce, usually involving basil. Now, of course, Paxo is the alarmingly languid Newsnight anchor and Pesto is the Business Editor of the BBC, possessor of a troublingly fixed gaze. Some say he has lately become pure energy. Pesto has taken over from Paxo in our imaginations. He is now the national emblem of the end of the world. He also has a blog which, yesterday, sent bank shares though the floor. He works very hard so he must be middle class. But what do we make of Pesto? I am undecided.
Hmmm others have their doubts.
