Steve Bray and Lee Anderson clashed on the streets of Westminster again after the Tory MP was revealed to be making £100,000 a year presenting for GB News.
The deputy chair of the Conservative Party was handed his own show alongside the likes of Jacob Rees-Mogg, Esther McVey and Philip Davies on the channel.
He says he will use his new platform to communicate his views to the so-called ‘silent majority’ by speaking up for constituents outside the London bubble, presumably from the GB News studios located in Paddington.
The Tory Deputy Chairman said: “GB News is the true voice of the Great British silent majority.”
He added: “I’m joining the people’s channel to ensure their voice is heard.”
Editorial Director Michael Booker said: “Lee has been a breath of fresh air in Westminster since he was elected, doing something that many politicians are scared to do: talking honestly about what they believe.
“Our viewers and listeners appreciate his common-sense language, something that has been missing from politics for a long time. As the next election will be fought in the Red Wall, Lee’s insights into northern voters will be key.”
Needless to say, Bray wasn’t quite as sympathetic:
