Andrew Neil’s GB News is hiring staff including presenters, editors, producers and others. Let’s take a look at how the political balance of GB News is progressing.
Name: Gloria Del Piero
Curriculum Vitae: In 2016 former right-wing Labour MP and Brexiteer Del Piero tried to encourage The Sun readers to join the party in an attempt to unseat Jeremy Corbyn as leader. She failed to vote in favour of her party’s motion to withdraw UK military support for Saudi Arabia’s war crimes in Yemen, and she failed to vote against the Social Murder policy of David Cameron’s Tory government. After giving up as an MP Del Peiro worked at Murdoch’s online “radio” channel Times Radio.
Name: Mercy Muroki
Curriculum Vitae: The Sun columnist and a product of Ian Duncan-Smith’s hard-right Centre For Social Justice Muroki is a keen supporter of Social Murder intent of Universal Credit. Appointed by Tory government to Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities she contributed to its discredited report published in March (2021).
Name: Liam Hannigan
Role: Economics and Business Editor
Curriculum Vitae: Groomed by extremist libertarian and enemy of democracy Andrei Illarionov in Moscow in the 1990s Hannigan promotes, with relentless mendacity, economic policies that seek maximum concentration of wealth in the hands of a few via world-wide exploitation and removal of government, and thus democracy, from management of that exploitation. Hannigan’s skill is translation of nefarious aims into usable language for politicians and for broadcasters and newspapers. Wilful unbounded misrepresentation of the effects of Brexit, a tool to turn the UK into a theme park for market gamblers, tax dodgers and charter cities, was (since before the referendum) and continues to be one of Hannigan’s favoured occupations. Broadcasters yes-platform him frequently because they mistake manufactured pseudo-eloquence for insight.
Name: Alexandra Phillips
Curriculum Vitae: Former Head of Media for UKIP and former The Brexit Party MEP Phillips’ two claims to fame are 1) she wrote a supportive article on Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers Of Blood’ speech: “Before we vilify Enoch Powell based upon our own comparisons and corroborations, let us first acknowledge that the primary victim of the dubbed ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech has, in fact, been Powell himself,” and 2) she was employed by data-mining and election manipulator Cambridge Analytica in the Kenyan presidential election but denied doing so, including accusing broadcaster Channel 4 of libel – “I’ve never been employed by Cambridge Analytica in my life. That’s libellous.” – before retracting her denial when Channel 4 produced a recording of Phillips wherein she had said she worked for them.
Name: Tom Harwood
Role: Political Correspondent
Curriculum Vitae: Nurtured at £18,000 per annum The Perse School extremist libertarian Harwood’s modus crassendi is to exude vile bigotry with childish mocking stunts and provocation. He worked at vile extreme-right propaganda organisations Students For Liberty, Guido Fawkes and Turning Point UK before becoming a Telegraph columnist. Harwood never attempts to pretend to have knowledge of any issue about which he bloviates.
Name: Dan Wootton
Curriculum Vitae: Showbiz gossip journalist Wootton is a bog standard beneficiary of Rupert Murdoch’s twist of the Peter Principle whereby salacity and studious stupidity are key literary assets to assist progress up the News International journalistic ladder. Aping behaviour of single-figure follower twitter trolls Wootton maintains his career by using petulant abuse, random insults and feigndignation aimed at celebrities and he feeds off their responses. Women are disproportionately targetted by him.
Name: Neil Oliver
Curriculum Vitae: Screaming incoherent unionist Oliver described support for Scottish independence as “cancerous.” His ‘Paean To Britain’ essay echoed the style of Jean Genet’s onanistic ‘Our Lady Of The Flowers.’ A Farage in a 1970s bass-player’s wig he said the wearing of Covid masks “is like communism” and declared that people who exhibit responsibility to their and others’ health are merely scared of “authority.”
Name: Andrew Doyle
Curriculum Vitae: Too cowardly and not literate enough to be able to express his political views lucidly and openly Doyle hides behind childlike attempts at humour and invented banal personas. A former teacher at £34,000 per annum Royal Hospital School Doyle was aghast that some private schools support anti-racism education. He admitted his disdain for Black Lives Matter is partly due to its anti-capitalist stance. He enjoys assuming working-class people are ignorant and incapable of critical analysis.
Name: Michelle Dewberry
Curriculum Vitae: Former The Brexit Party parliamentary candidate Dewberry won reality TV show The Apprentice in 2006.
Name: Alastair Stewart
Curriculum Vitae: Veteran newsreader Stewart, famed for his enjoyment of several alcoholic beverages before going for a drive, is a prolific and persistent troll on social media. His behaviour includes personal abuse with particular emphasis on casting doubt on the intelligence of his targets. He was sacked by ITN after he sent a barrage of public social media messages to one person that led directly to that person being a victim of sustained abuse from other posters who supported Stewart’s attack.
Name: Colin Brazier
Curriculum Vitae: Veteran newsreader Brazier’s single foray into political activism is a campaign for larger families in Britain. Having added six children to the population, while a recipient of a good salary at Sky News, Brazier asked the government to be “pro-natalist.” In an article for Koch-financed Unherd Brazier did not elucidate his economic rationale for larger families but he did excuse Boris Johnson’s possible preference for avoiding increases in immigration: “Nuanced pro-natalism might also allow Boris to spike nativist guns (if that is, you believe that relying on ever increasing numbers of migrant workers stokes populism.)” Brazier spoke of “a woman’s ability to achieve her stated fertility ambitions” and of how women “feel pressured into going back to work after having a baby.”
Name: Christian Mitchell
Role: Executive Producer
Curriculum Vitae: His stated highlight of his career Mitchell was “proud to have made UK radio history in securing the first ever radio interview with a sitting US President, Donald Trump.” His claim of being “first” was false.
Name: Inaya Folarin Iman
Curriculum Vitae: Founding Director of far-right pressure group Free Speech Union, alongside professional extremist libertarians Douglas Murray and Toby Young, Iman tried to coerce students into supporting far-right ideology by inviting them to join a project called Free Speech Champions; those who expressed an interest were sent videos supporting the rights of Nazis.
Name: Anna Riley
Role: Reporter (Yorkshire)
Curriculum Vitae: When employed at Hull Live website (part of Hull Daily Mail, owned by Reach) as not a news reporter Riley published an article that focussed on a social media comment from Hull Labour councillor Aneesa Akbar wherein the councillor mentioned the racism of the late Prince Philip. Riley’s piece was presented as outrage reaction and included an alleged quote from an unnamed “constituent.” As a consequence Akbar was hounded off social media. Hull Labour said “Hull Labour Group fully supports Cllr Akbar and is dismayed by Hull Live’s misleading and inflammatory reporting of a private Facebook comment about institutional racism and the platform it continues to give to appalling personal abuse.”
