Poor GBeebies viewers trying to cancel someone for taking the knee. I thought that was a mean leftie thing?

That channel is a mess.

Never watched it. The irony of its apparent demise isn’t lost on me though from a comedic perspective.

I've seen about 10 minutes of it and it was awful. The premise seems a bit restricted from what I've seen. It's not a news channel, stories aren't reported unless it has a left or right angle. 🤷‍♂️

“ The channel has now said the decision of Guto Harri to make the on-air gesture on Tuesday in solidarity against the racist abuse suffered by English players was “an unacceptable breach of our standards”.

What standards?

'The figures were recorded the day after Harri’s move, which led to widespread fury on social media from GB News viewers who pledged to stop watching the recently launched rightwing current affairs channel, making accusations that it had sold out and gone “woke”, secretly harboured Marxist values, or was in favour of Black Lives Matter.'

And there we have it. The channel right wingers said they wanted for free speech, was actually wanted because they didn't want to see opposing views. Surprise surprise.

Who wanted it?

What happened to "GB News stands four square against racism in all its forms. We do not have a company line on taking the knee."

Well apparently you do if taking the knee is "an unacceptable breach of our standards"

It looks like its being recorded on a 10 year old smart phone, the backdrop is a mishmash and everytime they go out to a roving reporter the line goes dead.

However I've not witnessed any right wing bias, the lefties have been well represented in the bits and pieces I've watched.

I see Andrew Neil has got out already so the future doesn't look too good for GB News.

Can’t see anything in that link where he said it’s wrong to boo the players

Knew you’d be the first to jump to the racist bigots defence though

7 June

When asked about booing of the knee at the Romania match the day before, the Guardian reported the Prime Minister’s official spokesperson as saying: “[The Prime Minister] fully respects the right of those who choose to peacefully protest and make their feelings known.”

In the same interview, the spokesperson said: “On taking the knee, specifically, the Prime Minister is more focused on action rather than gestures.”

11 June

The Prime Minister’s official spokesperson was widely reported as saying: “The Prime Minister wants to see everybody getting behind the team to cheer them on, not boo.”

12 June

The BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg reported on Twitter: “PM said it was ‘totally wrong’ for fans to boo national teams, but he wouldn’t condemn fans who have booed players for taking the knee.”

And other reports said Mr Johnson told Channel 5: “What I certainly don’t think you should do is boo the England team… I disapprove of people booing the England team. I see no reason to do that.”

13 June

During a G7 summit press conference Mr Johnson said: “Everybody should cheer for England,” although he did not condemn people who booed or say whether he would take the knee himself.

14 June

Ms Patel told GB News, when asked about the England football team taking the knee: “I just don’t support people participating in that type of gesture politics, to a certain extent.”

In the same interview, when asked if England fans were right to boo, Ms Patel said: “That’s a choice for them, quite frankly.”

When asked if she would boo, she also said: “I’ve not gone to a football match to even contemplate that.”

3 July

When asked if he would take the knee on LBC, Mr Johnson said: “I don’t believe in gestures, I believe in substance.”

The reason you can't see anything is because you are ja606s resident idiot.

Don’t know if anyone has January comparable numbers? BMCL?

I have no reference on whether 3800 is high or low.

Something seems amiss. According to the link below there are 163,000 hospital beds in the UK.

I'm sure I'm missing something, but 'only' 3800 covid patients in hospital...

i went to the TNS v Glentoran Europa conference match last night

Full house....Crowd told before match to wear masks.....I reckon about 5% of ppl in the stadium had on a mask

Come Monday it's over for many ppl.....mask wearing will stop overnight

There's going to be a big increase in Covid cases for sure
