Andrew Neil brands GB News a ‘Ukip tribute band’ and says it was a ‘huge mistake’ joining
The Independent says Andrew Neil has described GB News as a “Ukip tribute band” in a scathing new interview.
The presenter was the face of the much-derided right-leaning news channel when it launched earlier this year, but left acrimoniously during in September.
Neil has now described the channel’s launch as a “shambles”, claiming that the broadcaster could “fall into irrelevance and obscurity” unless viewership numbers pick up.
During a recent appearance at Freeview’s Outside the Box event, the former BBC presenter said: “The big mistake I made – and it was a huge mistake, and it did cause pain and aggravation – was that I put my name and face on the tin and yet quickly discovered that I really had no say in what was going into that tin.
