Nigel Farage (who has a show on GB News where you advertise) used to sing "Gas them All" about Jews.

The most absurd thing about this Alex Belfield & Jeremy Vine thing is not that anyone claiming to be "THE VOICE OF REASON" almost certainly isn't, but that Belfield is labouring under the mistaken belief that Vine, who RTd notorious far-right crank "Peter Snowden", is "a lefty".
Alex Belfield has form. Plenty of form.

The right-wing YouTuber once called a mother of triplets a "slapper" live on air, & recently referred to the women who escaped fines for walking by a reservoir during lockdown as “hotties”.

In 2010, when he was a @BBC local radio dj, he was forced to apologise after he was suspended for making "totally inappropriate" on-air remarks to Look North weather presenter Keeley Donovan.

Can't imagine why the #GBeebies superfans love him.

*HOW MANY ROLLS OF DOWNING ST WALLPAPER?*

UK's richest 1,000 wealth increase since 2009:

571 MILLION💰💰💰

Crony contracts given to Tory donors:

2.4 MILLION 💰💰

Investment in Andrew Neil's #GBeebies:

71,428💰

Average additional annual income from nurse pay rise:

0.4 +👏
The wallpaper cost £840 a roll.

#NHS nurses will receive a pay increase worth less than half a roll of Downing St wallpaper this year – despite their heroics in guiding the country through a deadly pandemic resulting in 150,000 largely avoidable deaths.

#GBeebies investors may be more interested in #INFLUENCE than financial return: £60 MILLION was raised with help from Libertarian billionaires #Cato's John Malone & #Legatum's Christopher Chandler, & hedge funder Paul Marshall who bet big on #Brexit chaos.

#THREAD about Boris Johnson, dead bodies, Brexit, & Andrew Neil's TV Channel & power.

The news is full of claims that last year, Boris Johnson said “No more fucking lockdowns: let the bodies pile high in their thousands”, which our sociopathic Govt dismissed as "comedy gossip".
Boris Johnson, 2017: "I look at Libya... There's a group of UK business people... want to invest in Sirte on the coast... They have got a brilliant vision to turn Sirte into the next Dubai. The only thing they have got to do is clear the dead bodies away!"
The speech was given to the #Legatum Institute (originally registered in Cayman Islands) a well-funded free-market think-tank specializing in disaster #capitalism, which in 2016, jointly sponsored a report called 'The Road to Brexit'. The foreword was penned by Iain Duncan Smith.

Let's take a look at the "impartial" #GBNews presenters who definitely won't in any way be part of a partisan echo-chamber, that definitely won't in any way be just like #FoxNews, & definitely won't in any way seek to divide even further our already dangerously polarized country:
