Longhurst last seen at ITV Westcountry, though suspect he's not there any longer. Infamously "fired" from Sky News thanks to an incident involving Owen Jones (who later denied it had anything to do with him after he walked off mid interview though it wasn't the first time and it wouldn't be the last time he did that) in 2016.
I think his walk off was entirely justified, considering what he was confronted with. A shooting in a gay club not a targeted homophobic attack? Just outrageous.
I don't think his walk off it was justified. The others during the discussion (Longhurst and Julia Hartley-Brewer) both acknowledged it was a homophobic attack but were talking about the attack in the broader context of this being another terrorist attack on the western world when Jones intervened.
Jones wanted to push his agenda and was given ample time to speak without interruption, yet when the others spoke he shut them down, talking over them and said "you don't understand because you're not gay" which as a gay man made me shudder.
My personal view is that he walked off because Hartley-Brewer called out his behaviour and put him firmly in check, which left him more visibly seething than the earlier part of the conversation.
