I don't think it came across as a dig. Neil told it like it was and one can understand why he walked. Think he left on good terms though as he's since contributed with news opinions.
Not sure this one aged particularly well!

Between Neil and the chap who took the knee, I'm assuming GB News would not be so hypocritical as to complain about cancel culture in the future?

Your favourite newspaper seems to think differently! :ROFLMAO:
Andrew Neil vows never to appear on GB News again (msn.com)
Purple on purple....bring out the popcorn! 🥊🥊
Ha, yes. The amicable terms quickly soured.

Given there isn't actually much news as such on GB News, I think it will fail.

Essentially it's just a 24/7 chat show. These things are more effective on radio, in that you don't need to see the people talking as there is nothing to see.

If Uncle Roop's new venture is pretty much the same but just with different hosts, it will end up with the same fate.

What BBC & Sky news gives you is roving reporters relaying updates from the coal face, interspersed with chat. It's more made for TV.

Maybe they're trying News on the cheap? Like you say you need reporters out in the field, An office in Westminster at the very least, I personally think its a shame they've gone down the "Chat" route, Those sort of channels have a home online. You need an alternative view, Even if you disagree with that view but GB News haven't found its niche really just yet.
