Conference brochure reveals stand position of ‘UK’s version of Fox News’ as well as accrediting S*n
After the scandal yesterday of the decision by Keir Starmer’s Labour to accredit the reviled Murdoch S*n to report from its party conference this weekend while banning left-wing publications, the party has now been exposed giving stand space to the hard right GB News, which is positioned as the UK’s version of the Trumpian US station Fox News.
Labour’s conference brochure reveals that the station has been able to book a double stand:
GB News has been heavily criticised for its programming and for actions such as suspending presenter Guto Harri for taking a knee in solidarity with the England football team’s anti-racist stand, which GB News described as an ‘unacceptable breach of our standards’.
Keir Starmer doesn’t even have the excuse that he’s trying to reach voters who watch the channel – it recently had literally zero viewers and has continued to show tiny viewing figures almost without interruption, leading to the station’s main face Andrew Neil deciding to quit. Meanwhile, Labour is frantically blocking left-wing delegates in a desperate bid to save Starmer’s sidekick David Evans and push through rules to turn members into mere leafletting fodder.
Whether such nonsense is driven by financial desperation, political or intellectual bankruptcy or more likely a mixture of all of them, Labour under Keir Starmer and David Evans is a fish rotting from its head.
