His true colours have been shown.

People thought he was an ardent Brexiteer. In reality be appears to be more of a far right neo-nazi than anything else.
He was just trying to please Trump.
A very dangerous. man who should not be getting so much time on TV and radio.

I discovered him on LBC a while ago and couldn't bear to listen. He was clearly using the station as a platform for his own political agenda. Ferrari I used to like but I got fed up with him not letting anyone even finish a sentence, let alone finish making their point.

The BBC gave him 32 slots on Question Time, more than any politician and more than some political parties in the same period.. That's inexcusable.

Surprised LBC had such a divisive figure presenting a radio programme. Don't think it's enhanced their reputation in any way.

I presume it boosted their ratings which increased their advertising income, morality obviously never entered into the equation.

I never neard him on there but did see a video of him being taken in by somebody winding him up on it once. Not really a surprise to me, not so much in Britain to my knowledge, but in certain other countries, US and Oz in particular the use of 'shock jocks' was well installed. I remember in Sydney many years ago a bloke on the local radio (2UE?) called John Laws was outrageous in the things he said which had the desired result of some pretty nasty exchanges, many of which would be illegal today because of racist and sexist language and abuse.
