Andrew Neil gunning for Rashford

So you have none. We took the scenic route but got there eventually
I’m not the one making the accusation that AN is “gunning for” MR. So that’s not how it works. A quick google will bring up a number of quotes that say he’s not involved in the editorial, but I doubt that would suffice for a thread bordering on conspiracy theorist levels 😆

Show us said quotes.

I’ll start with

“Mr Johnson and Mr Neil met to discuss the development yesterday. The source stressed that Mr Johnson would be given complete editorial freedom, but it would be inconceivable that Mr Neil would not be involved in broad editorial decisions”

Any facts or evidence, even anecdotes from the staff, that the Chairman is involved in the editorial of this publication? Let alone involvement in this particular unpublished story. Or is this all just supposition?

I know living in a post facts world of fake news and misinformation is all the rage, but sometimes it’s good to back some stuff up.
The Spectator specialises in taking people down who challenge the narrative that favours the establishment.

There's no argument given in their journalism for public interest as you might see in an investigative exposé. They usually drag the self avowed nonce Rod Little out of his gentlemen's club to knock off a hatchet job.

They've downplayed racist attacks on Rashford and taken him to task for his school dinners campaign. Hatchet jobs. Take downs.

The idea that Andrew Neil, as Chairman of Press Holdings, the company which own GB News and The Spectator as well as being beholden to the wishes of the Barclays brothers, is entirely unaware of the editorial policy is risible.

Your quote is from 2004/05 when he was Chief Exec. Yes. A chief executive role would be heavily involved. He’s Chairman now and denies involvement in editorial.

I’m unaware that the GB News trash is owned by Press Holdings. As far as I know Discovery have a large stake & there are connections to Liberty via the owners of GB News who also have roles at Liberty. I’m not aware of any any connection to the surviving Barclay brother - could be mistaken on any % ownership by Barclay. Let me know.

You're right.

Interesting that the right wing rags give the signal to start attacking Rashford today, and so a certain kind of SMB poster also starts attacking him today.

It's almost like they cant form their own opinion and just do whatever they are told by the hate magazines 🤷‍♂️

This is the SMB marra.
If an OP makes out a thread title that is incorrect, then nothing will get it changed.
Then you get people adding shite/supposition and nonsense following on from such a wrong title thread - just like what has happened in this thread.
Happens all of the time on here.

you can have a pop at bame`s without being racist you know
Not if the only reason you come up with to have a go at him is he is too visible and vocal about raising donations

You mean like their sudden anti Marxism stand although none of them can define what Marxism is, just that it is obviously really bad

Seems strange to want to attack a working class lad who has tried to make sure kids dont go hungry. I wonder if its jealousy from those that attack him?

I think the issue is maybe related to his motives i.e. be seen to help something (that in actual fact didn't need helping) and shouted about it every 5mins to raise his own profile. Plus the shit pen!!
That seems to be the jist
