ANDREW Neil is unemployed after jacking in GB News just three months after he started it. What dickhead job could he do next?
LBC will take any old washed up has-been with an inflammatory opinion, making it perfect for Neil. A further plus point is that he could rant about the evils of the EU from his luxury home in France and no one would know he wasn’t presenting from good old Blighty.
Another graveyard for the jaded or the unhinged, this would make a good home for Neil. Even if he knows nothing about sport, he would have plenty to say about taking the knee, and that would be enough for a twice weekly show.
Neil could follow in the footsteps of broadcasting heavyweights such as Natasha Kaplinsky and John Sergeant by putting on his sequins and giving ballroom dancing a whirl. He’ll have to sacrifice a bit of pride, but he will be used to that after the disaster that is GB News.
Cabinet Minister in Boris Johnson’s government
What job is better suited to an over opinionated blowhard with a penchant for stoking bullshit culture wars than as a minister in the current government? In fact, Neil could take over Prime Minister’s Questions, as he’s way better at public speaking than the current incumbent.
Contributor to GB News
If all else fails, why not remain a contributor to the very channel that you have just resigned from? Which is exactly what Neil is doing. Despite launching GB News, he’ll be glad viewers are now switching off in droves because the embarrassment of playing second fiddle to Nigel Farage must be awful.
Neil is 72, he’s had a long and successful career and he clearly wants to spend all of his time at home abroad. Why doesn’t he just quit broadcasting for good and spend his time privately fuming about the perils of foreign countries while enjoying France’s finest weather, wine and cheese? We’ll all be happier.
