Others suggested TalkRADIO scoop him up: “I hope @talkRADIO can afford him,'” and someone else added: “@Nigel_Farage move over to @talkRADIO.”
However, some were very pleased with the news.
“This is absolutely the right thing to do. His racist dog-whistling should have no place on a mainstream platform. Fantastic news. Now do Ferrari,” someone remarked.
Another added: “Excellent news – I am glad LBC have seen sense and will not be giving airtime to the hate he peddles.”
A twitter user remarked: “Full-time politicians shouldn‘t be hosting talk radio shows anyway. It gives them free air time and a platform with no-one to challenge them. The practice needs to stop. Put trained journalists back behind the microphone.”
