Alex Phillips, a former Brexit Party MEP has raged against Brits who call GB News “far right”. She made the fiery rant during her afternoon program. She said that she had “point blank refused” to invite guests to her program. She noted that this refusal is what fuels political inequalities and tribalism.
Ms Phillips stated that “Today’s constant barrage identity politics and ridiculous name calling has entered political discourse. It has been concentrated into a series boorish soundbites, inflammatory clickbait and seen the center ground collapse, and all the noise pushed to the edges.
It doesn’t matter if you are left-wing or right-wing. Today, it is almost expected that you choose a side, and then subscribe to one of a list ideologies.
“The terms left, right and center have been made insulting in their own rights, with a creeping cancel culture that means the two supposed combative cabals frequently decide it is perfectly okay to ignore any interaction with the other side.
I should have known. There are many people out there who would like to portray this channel as extreme right. I have invited many potential contributors to the program to offer their contribution. Many refuse to talk to me. This is a self-fulfilling prophecy about political inequalities.

Elle continued, “The right wing is now synonymous with hatred, selfishness and lack of compassion. It also reflects greed and xenophobia.
“Whereas the left wing encourages moral superiority, it is ascribed self-righteousness and snowflake to laziness.
“The toxic titration that is fed by algorithms on social media betrays our human condition as a societal animal. In reality, there are more similarities than differences.
It also feeds into an expectation that loyalty is a prerequisite for our ability to think critically.
One said: “All that I know is that, regardless of their party affiliations, I listen to all the MPs in Parliament and agree with them.”
One added, “Aren’t politicians in this for themselves?” They don’t do the things they claim.”
Another person stated: “We definitely need something new.
“Brexit was not even a wet fart. Never mind an earthquake.”
