Neil's rants on Twitter about "woke warriors" and the "censorious left" don't bode well for GB News' stated aim of impartiality.
As someone who lives far from the so-called "metropolitan elite", the idea that all of us who live a distance from London are "fed up" of things like treating immigrants with dignity, LGBT+ rights and basic decency to everyone leaves a fairly bad taste in my mouth, as does the idea that those are somehow metropolitan values that we don't share. We are not all champing at the bit for a right-wing news channel that moans endlessly about "woke". Most of us have got better things to think about.
This channel seems wholly unnecessary, a response to a "problem" that only the originators of GB News seem able to perceive. I'd say that if someone proposed a left-wing news channel, too.
