Removal of advertising from GB News ‘shows democracy being undermined’

GBNews published this video item, entitled “Removal of advertising from GB News ‘shows democracy being undermined’” – below is their description.

Democracy in the UK is being undermined by a “small but vocal minority”, the Culture Secretary has said after multiple brands pulled advertising from GB News.

Oliver Dowden has warned that basic democratic values can no longer be taken for granted after the upstart channel saw the withdrawal of advertising from companies such as Ikea, cider firm Kopparberg and Octopus Energy.

GB News political correspondent Tom Harwood says before the station started broadcasting, people had started to say ‘this should not be allowed’.

He added that it would be odd if a government minister did not respond to what the nation is talking about and that Oliver Dowden was right to respond to “an increasingly frantic culture out there in the real country.”
