Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson joins GB News

Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson joins GB News

In a move that ought to surprise nobody, Boris Johnson is joining GB News

Boris Johnson has announced that he will be joining GB News with a presenting role on the channel.

Little over a year ago he was the prime minister before being ousted by mass resignations in his party, and Johnson quit as an MP back in June.

Johnson's resignation ultimately appears to have done little to stop the cavalcade of catastrophe that is the Conservative party in its current form as he was replaced by Liz Truss, who lasted barely a few weeks before she also resigned.

Truss in turn was replaced by Rishi Sunak, the man she beat in the Tory leadership contest, and he's been in office just over a year now.

A look at the polls will tell you it's not been going great for Sunak, and now to add to his problems the Prime Minister he helped usher out of Downing Street is getting a job on the telly.

In a video posted on X, formerly Twitter, GB News released footage of the former PM telling people he was going to be sharing his 'unvarnished views' on their channel.

"Hi folks, Boris Johnson here. I am excited to say that I am shortly going to be joining you on GB News," the former prime minister said in the video.

“I’m going to be giving this remarkable new TV channel my unvarnished views on everything from Russia, China, the war in Ukraine, how we meet all those challenges, to the huge opportunities that lie ahead for us, why I believe our best days are yet to come.

“And why on the whole the people of the world want to see more global Britain, not less."

In his own post on X, Johnson said he was 'very much looking forward to joining GB News'.

The channel has been in need of some new presenters after Laurence Fox was sacked while Dan Wootton was suspended.
