Surely a Minister for anti-Woke goes round putting people to sleep?
So..... maybe blocking flues to cause Carbon-monoxide poisoning ?
Or more benignly, just droning on in some long speech about the evils of unisex toilets till we all nod off.....
I assume #gbNews will host her .... oh! Reality precedes satire - she does, with here lovely hubbie
Saturday Morning with Esther and Phillip
Satire is indeed dead
The #TV #show #host was #suspended by the #rightwing #channel in September after a #sexist #rant by #LaurenceFox – who was also #suspended and later #fired – aimed at #journalist #AvaEvans was #broadcast #live on #air, while Wootton #smiled and #laughed.
For those not from the UK,
#GBnews is their version of
#Foxnews so when it comes to reporting on Israel's massacre of Palestinian civilians the coverage has been very one sided. For some insane reason their host #EstherMcvey, a British 'Laura Ingram' type, invited social media personality and comedian #Goub on her show. It's a pleasure to watch as he calls her out on all her western media BS.
Not surprisingly GBNews has apparently not aired the interview.
Cosplay Vicar Calvin Robinson hanging out with the Fash at the Cenotaph?
Those GB News boys pop up in the most expected of places.
"One of the owners of GB News runs a hedge fund that has a major financial stake in more than 100 oil and gas firms, DeSmog can reveal."
"Johnson asked scientists about ‘special hairdryer to kill Covid’"
This sort of thing will go down a treat on GBeebies.
Der ehemalige Premierminister Boris #Johnson wird ab 2024 für den Nachrichtensender #GBNews arbeiten: https://derchotv.de/2023/10/29/ehemaliger-britischer-premierminister-johnson-kommentiert-ab-2024-fuer-gb-news/
Does it? I thought the #gbNews core audience are somewhere to the right of Genghis Khan, and regard the #vacuumOfIntegrity as a useful idiot but a bit of a pinko given how much largesse he spread about rather indiscriminately during the pandemic......?
Or is he hired to give #sunak a hard time?
Civil Service Chief Simon Case accuses #Johnson at the height of #Covid of “Trump-Bolsonaro levels of mad and dangerous”. And #GBNews have just signed this 'madman' & #liar up, shows contempt 4 their audience, deep questions of truth & morality 4 GBNEWS to answer. https://tinyurl.com/3ytrxxkt #RejoinEU #ToryCriminalsUnfitToGovern
Well, it had to happen:
Seems like the perfect match of presenter (programme maker) & channel (outlet).
On both sides the celebration of bulls*t is a defining trait...
Will be interesting to see how Johnson is able to use this platform to drive the media agenda in the 'mainstream' press... my guess is, like Farage, they will be unable to resist giving him the 'oxygen of publicity' which he craves.
More from the land of unsurprising news:
Just looking at the channel’s roster of presenters: Farage, Rees-Mogg, Anderson, Davies, McVey, Fox (suspended), Wootton (suspended), and now BoJo the Clown. What was that expression of Hillary Clinton’s? Ah yes, “a basket of deplorables”.
Yeah - really good at breaking stuff..... but you have to be barking to watch #GBNews so I think he is safer there than anywhere else (like the Commons or a TV/radio station than sane but impressionable people listen to)
Presumably he has now drained the well of Republican suckers happy to pay a fortune for some ramblng after dinner speech.....
A lavatorial platform for things that won't flush
In news of the weird…
In a video posted on a GB News social media account, Johnson said he was going to be sharing his “unvarnished views” on the TV channel.
#vacuumOfIntegrity joins far right populist gobshop
Ofcom says GB news is not impartial, but how can that be true? It has every kind of wingnut going.
Home to odd Tory MPs and conspiracy theorists, the channel is a broad church – except when it comes to those who follow the rules
Calvin's a gift (#grift, surely?) that just keeps on giving. Apparently he's back from Disney in Florida and now he's off to a church in Norway. While he keeps plugging his crowdfunding shtick. Because the English ones don't want him. You've gotta be pretty bad for C of E to chuck you out.
#Laurence Fox has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit criminal damage to ULEZ cameras! 😳
Fox, who is the leader of the Reclaim Party, said in a social media video shared earlier today that his home was being searched by police officers.
Just before 10.45am, the party posted on Twitter, saying: "Live now @LozzaFox is having his house searched by the police."
"Five GB News Men Accused of Sexual Impropriety as Channel Engulfed by Wootton-Fox Misogyny Storm"
Includes station chief Angelos Frangopoulos, who expressed outrage at the behaviour of Laurence Fox.
It came out, live on air, that he was being paid and she wasn't. Sky apologised and offered her £75, the standard fee for such an appearance. Then they offered to increase it to £200, the same as they'd paid him.
As amusing as it is to know that GBeebies is having some issues with its presenters and keeps having to suspend them for being exactly the sorts of people they knew them to be when they were hired, I'd love to be able to hit the BBC News site without seeing quite so many stories about it. BBC News is crying out for a "Please just show me news that's actually important" button.
Also available at knockdown prices:
“Oliver’s Barmy: The Unravelling of Neil Oliver”
“Grimes Against Humanity”
“A. Bridgen: Too Far”
Wootton, Fox and now Robinson out of #GBNews.
Cancelled by the station that denounces cancel culture....
Now I'm waiting for Neil Oliver to accuse Neil Oliver of being a member of a shadowy secret global cabal which is conspiring with Neil Oliver against Neil Oliver. Neil Oliver will appear on GB News later to expose Neil Oliver's evil plan to steal Neil Oliver's free speech rights.
That's fake vicar Calvin Robinson been suspended from GB News, he tried taking a stand and said he wouldn't appear in "solidarity with Wootton" so they zapped him. :Limmy_DeeDee: GB News will replace Wootton's programme with something more in line with their viewers tastes (pictured).
Throughly enjoying watching the goings-on at #GBNews and the hilarious, frustrated bewilderment of those involved about being fired for exactly the same disgusting crap they were hired to produce in the first place.
If I were in charge of #GBNews (and please, in the unlikely event that this happens, please fucking smother me in my sleep), I would be looking for any excuse to get rid of this peculiar little cabal of kooks, crooks, cunts and clerics, who no-one in their right mind would want to work with, and who show up your ideology for the public schoolboy edgelord nonsense that it is.

#GBNews #danwootton #laurencefox #misogyny
Always revealing more of himself that he realises, Farage frames this as an example of "extraordinary... arrogance" because someone had the affrontery to ignore him.
The ensuing narcissistic injury speaks for itself. But what other aggrieved banking customers have a platform on #GBNews and a government doing their bidding?
You know, the bank whose share price has gone through the floor because of Farage being an entitled wanker.
Funny thing, that.
FOLLOW THE MONEY.
On holiday in UK for a few days. Visiting a few friends in different parts. Sitting in a kitchen this evening and #GBN #GBNews is on. What hell is this? It is shockingly bad. They are looking for things to scare people about. No ethics. Zero. It would be funny if it wasn't so angry and emotive. This does not bode well people.
There was a fella #laurencefox on earlier- terrifyingly snide. Unpleasant in the extreme.

I got a #GBNews video suggested from Google via an RSS feed for Google News.
I watched 2 minutes. It was 2 minutes of hate. That anyone watches this stuff and has views reinforced, they must be fucking idiots.

This means, despite calling itself GB News, it can get around the impartiality rules that others are expected to follow.
I just signed the petition calling on Ofcom to make sure their rules are able to hold ALL news channels to account - and properly enforce them on GB News . Will you sign too?
The article claims "Stop Funding Hate didn’t respond to my request for further explanation" - yet we can find no record of any such request🤔 https://archive.ph/2022.10.28-132232/https://www.telegraph.co.uk/tv/0/plot-against-gb-news-cancelled-launched/
