Still haven’t watched so can’t say if it’s good or bad.
They must be loving the attention it’s getting though. Must be getting them viewers?

'And we've only just begun': Andrew Neil celebrates as his weeknight show on GB News attracts 92,000 viewers - 26% more than BBC News channel and three times audience of Sky.

 

Is this sustainable in the weeks and months to come.

Probably. 

Look at the cult of Trump and how his obvious nonsense was swallowed by the masses. 

We've got a hell of a lot of these types in the UK and the evidence would suggest that regardless of what Johnson and his criminal cabal get up to people think he's a stand up guy doing a great job. 

Andrew Neil and his fellow 'presenters' are just giving the Gammonati what they want to hear.

Apparently Andrew Neil is taking a break over the summer after just 2 weeks of his show on the Men & Motors News channel.

That can't be good news for the station.

Only posting this here as it’s appeared on their website…I’m anti pc etc but is this funny? To anyone? 

https://www.gbnews.uk/news/comedian-andrew-lawrence-shows-cancelled-after-racist-jokes-about-englands-black-players/112341

I’ve never found the guy funny and he’s outed himself as a total ***** during covid (it’s been pretty good for that let’s be honest) but has he bumped his head?

He's never been fully mainstream, i remember when he broke through and was getting slots on Live at the Apollo around a decade ago.

 

He started making edgy right wing comments on social media and its been going on for years. Many of his peers criticised him for it and any chance of mainstream gigs evaporated. 

 

I hadn't seen or heard about him for a while till he piped up in the last 24/48hrs. I suspect he's on the spectrum for some form autism.

I’d actually seen him having a rant a few weeks ago somewhere (can’t remember where) about covid and I honestly thought it was parody. Clearly he’s just an utter cock.

yep, there is a big difference in a comedian being offensive (ala frankie boyle) and being racisit/xenophobic etc. it seems like this boys true colours have appeared and he thought he could use it to raise his profile and maybe get himself some tv work.

From his YouTube clips it looks like he's trying to play a character but it's more than likely they're his own views.

We saw him at an Edinburgh festival live and late show years ago and it was absolutely shite.

He seemed to think he was funny and continued his set completely oblivious that people hated him and were either ignoring him or having private conversations.

He seemed to be in a world of his own. Surprised anyone finds him funny because he genuinely seemed to be learning disabled. It felt like being asked to laugh at mentally disadvantaged person. 

Very uncomfortable experience.

The other comedian who appears to have killed his career is 20-30 tweet a day rant and raver Craig Campbell. 

 

I'm still following him on twitter to see where he goes next in terms of the crazed/sanctimonious/anti-vax rants...

The reason DM readers were offended was one of their presenters took a BLM knee live on air yesterday. Not exactly the best move to appease the viewership of a supposed anti woke/free speech network.

I saw this morning that #craftywank was trending on twitter and it turns out GBeebies poster boy Darren Grimes was allegedly nicknamed crafty wank at school as he got caught knocking one out under his school desk 😳

Right wing Tory MPs have voiced support for taking the knee last day or so. And backed Tyrone Mings criticising Priti Patel.

They can take the knee but it shouldn't be mandated by FA's or Govt. Regards backing Mings, this is just typical backsliding to avoid abuse themselves from social media/msm. They should tell Mings where to go and I bet that is how they actually feel but woke now always wins.

The basic problem GB News and others have in being strongly 'anti-woke' is that can be equated with being pro-racist.

 

I sense a change with the footballers a key staging post in actually accepting that racism is a real thing that affects people.

 

Maybe informing how the likes of GB News presents things.

The R word is banded about like confetti paper and it's meaning is getting lost amidst emojis and hashtags. It's an ever shifting sand of definitions and labels: questioning why BLM and kneeling on why it should have relevance to sport in this country should not be a view subject to attack by Tyrone Mings or wannabe Wolfie Smiths. Who exactly is intolerant here?

"This country" ?  Do you think BLM/blm was set up purely to fight racism in the USA ?

It's an American origin and run movement as is taking the knee before their sporting events in relation to police shootings of blacks. Comparing the ingrained racism in the USA to here or anywhere in wider Europe is totally spurious. Our cops are not even armed ffs. Many are just not happy unless they are showing solidarity, making trouble and complaining which includes blaming everybody but themselves for their predicaments.

As said the definition of that word is broad and ever changing. I can say I have worked with multiple nationality's and backgrounds in financial services since the mid 90s and never seen it overtly in any workplace in fact quite the reverse. The cultures of these places just don't permit it. If it exists at all in the white collar/professional workplace it's suppresed and hidden.

What? It's the UK's number 1 fear mongering "newspaper". Its the "doom & Gloom", "Worst Case Scenario", "Run for the hills" publication designed to warp peoples minds on a daily basis "drip, drip effect" so they agree with everything the right wing tories lie to us about.

You have either never read the Mail or are confusing it with the Guardian and got "right wing Tories" confused with "left wing marxists". I read both and somewhere in between lies something resembling the truth. If you read the Mail you would know it is at least as critical of Boris, with far greater effect, than the Guardian.

 

Anyway it was the Mail which bravely identified the murderers of Stephen Laurence all those years ago with a huge front page story and photograph of the perpetrators, guessing rightly that they wouldn't sue. You might say they were pioneers of Black Lives Matter!

I did, in reference to the Daily Mail. Do keep it on topic and in any case, "fatso Murrell" and the "Bute House Rat" tells me all I need to know about your "balance" to the conversation.
