Twitter users have come out in force against journalist Tom Harwood over one of his Eurovision tweets, telling people European countries should be grateful for UK’s Second World War contribution.
Harwood, who previously worked for right-wing political news website Guido Fawkes and as a columnist for the Telegraph, is now a political correspondent for GB News – forecast to be a right-leaning TV channel by the Financial Times.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
