Best UK radio station for news.

Post by Bald Eagle »

For a good unbiased listen to UK news try talkRADIO. I listen on the net and the don't miss programme is Mike Graham 10.00 to 13.00 UK time. This bloke does not take prisoners!

Yeah, he's good , he used to be on TalkSport (sister station I believe) and he did a late (midnight show) which was brilliant as he could be his mischievous best.

He is definitely NOT unbiased.

Talkradio is primarily pro Brexit and anti Europe in the majority of its journalists nowadays . All the Remainer views are expressed at off-peak hours.

I listen most mornings but have to switch over when these Boris luvvies go too far.

Mike Graham was on Talksport for a few years with various programmes mainly piloting the 24 hr sports station through the night. He did well considering he has very interest or knowledge of sport.

My "go to" station would be James O'brian in the morning on LBC radio. He is very keen to point out the failings of Bojo and his self-serving cronies. He is so outspoken I'm puzzled why he hasn't been given a gagging order for telling the truth.

Indeed so, he is my favourite also, very few stations and personnel left that havn’t been silenced by this bunch of Tory cronies

The thing about James O'Brian is that he won't allow people to make some unsupported statement or repeat some political platitude without trying to get them to explain what they mean. It's not just the Brexit idiots that get grilled but anyone who just parrots clichés ( it's just that the brexiters do that more than anyone else).

The best is when he asks for one positive, definable benefit of Brexit. After 4 1/2 years, still no coherent answer. Great stuff.

Ditto with Mike Graham! The trouble is that he doesn't spout anti Brexit rubbish so that is probably why you lot do not like him. ;) ;) ;)
