There will be no tears - possibly with the exception from his bank manager - at the forced exit of presenter Guto Harri from GB News.
When he decided to take the knee (and God only knows why the programme director didn’t stop him) he knew he was cutting his own throat.
There is no mainstream TV station which would allow its “talent” to take such an extreme political view. Huw Edwards couldn’t do it without fired from the BBC nor could Tom Bradby at ITV.
Harri must have worked out, unless he is dim or too self-involved (both possibilities), there would be repercussions from the audience.
When I last looked the job of a television employee was to increase the ratings not damage them. Although Jon Snow and colleagues at C4 News don’t seem to have received that email.
And damage the audience he certainly did. The ratings, which had been healthy for a start-up in a crowded market, collapsed.
As did Guto Harri’s career. Who on earth would hire Harri now?

Harri is a proud Welshman and he might find work there although he would be the first person I have ever heard of to return to the Principality looking for employment.
My bet is that Nigel Farage’s show starting tonight will be a winner. He is receiving astonishing ratings when doing a 6pm show on LBC. In radio audience collapses at 6pm as people are eating, travelling or turning on the telly.
Unbelievably LBC’s went up. So what did they do? They fired him. Why? You tell me.
Anyway their loss is GB News gain. I wish them well and I will be turning on for the Farage show.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
