The presenters have signed their contracts with a strict clause saying they cannot give their own personal opinion on anything. That's new.

Wootton definitely didn't!

I'd be interested to know if they covered the GB Resistance mob chasing a journalist down the street, not least because the mob seemed to be repeating/snarling/hissing a lot of the talking points I've seen on GB News whenever I tune in.

They did. Viscerally condemned it in no uncertain terms.

Dan Wootton did have some genuinely impressive white supremacy teeth

Still laughing at this. Bravo, Chip, bravo.

[I do think Wootton's is the most entertaining show on GB News, the rest of their output is a bit of a muddled mess.

A TV presenter - Matthew Stadlen has been mocking GB News on twitter and probably elsewhere.
He asked if was a spoof channel and said much the same as the above comment. Berating it at any chance.

The political news editor of GB News, John McAndrew, replied. No it is a start up with all the difficulties entailed.
Thank you for sending your CV in three times for the job of 'presenter'

If that's true that's a good put down.

I did enjoy yesterday when Simon McCoy had to tell off viewers to stop sending in texts from Hugh Janus and Mike Hunt. He probably just made it worse, though.

That's sort of why I find him entertaining. Although I think at some point they will recruit a bigger more seasoned journalist to replace him, as he is incredibly flimsy and lightweight.

I see various big companies have been pressured into withdrawing their advertising because of some stupid little snowflakes.

Or customers, as they call them.

You pay for advertising by number of viewers, so clearly the numbers are on the side of the "woke lefie wankers", that's a lot of wanking. I blame Cummings. Forget about "rivers of blood", rivers of cummings

Oh come on. Most of you are too old to be woke. You'll all be up against the wall when the yoof revolution happens.

It has been mooted that he's cannon fodder, hired to take flak and, indeed, be replaced in fairly swift time.

I just think this would be s more pleasant place if we dialed down the endless tediously predictable anti-woke rants. And when Goodlad starts in on "woke leftie wankers" it just feels nasty and bitter. Take the piss and criticise by all means, but do it with good-natured humour. After all, this is meant to be the British Comedy Guide.
