GB News chief declares war on Remainers who acted ‘in favour of the EU'


    The claim was made on LinkedIn by Andrew Cole, who created the new channel alongside Mark Schneider. Earlier today GB News announced it will launch at 8pm on Sunday 13th June.

    Andrew Neil, the company’s chair, argued it’s needed as the British media has become “too metropolitan, too southern and too middle-class”.

    Writing on LinkedIn Mr Cole said: “GB News: Over time we will conduct special enquiries to expose those who act in the worst interests of the UK.

    “We will also drive critical campaigns: one could be calling for a public enquiry into certain MPs, members of the Lords and civil servants who acted against the UK and in favour of a foreign entity (the EU) during the Brexit years.

    “Many of our target audience wish to see this enquiry happen.”

    Whilst Britain voted to leave the EU in June 2016, the formal exit didn’t take place until January 2020.

    Brexit was repeatedly delayed in parliament after Mrs May lost her majority at the 2017 general election.

    Many Labour Party, Liberal Democrat and some rebel Conservative MPs attempted to force a re-run of the referendum.

    GB News will be the first major UK news network launched since Sky News in 1989.

    Mr Neil, a former Sunday Times editor who worked for the BBC over 25 years, explained the rational for the new channel in the Daily Express.

    He wrote: “I believe our national conversation has become too metropolitan, too southern and too middle-class.

    “Some journalists and commentators seem too confident that their liberal-left assumptions must surely be shared by every sensible person in the land.

    “But many of those same sensible people are fed up. They feel left out and unheard.

    “There’s a restlessness, a sense that they’re being talked down to; that much of the media no longer reflects their values or shares their concerns.

    “GB News is aimed squarely at those people.”

    Whilst Britain formally left the EU in January 2020 it remained closely tied to the block during the Brexit transition period.

    This lasted until the end of December, when it was replaced with Boris Johnson’s new Brexit deal.

    Until this point the UK remained a member of the European single market and continued to implement many laws made in Brussels.

    Mr Johnson’s deal restored Britain as a fully independent trading nation.
