Darren Grimes is joining GB News to host a new weekend show from the new year. Real Britain with Darren Grimes will broadcast at 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays, with the first show airing in January. Congratulations, Darren!
The campaign group Defund the BBC is hosting a debate at Conservative Party Conference on whether the BBC licence should be reformed or scrapped. Speakers include former Secretary of State Rt Hon David Davis MP and Reasoned presenter Darren Grimes.
Successive governments have backed away from confrontation with the BBC at the last minute and the campaign group is looking to ensure that doesn’t happen again.
“The BBC licence is a discriminatory tax which unfairly hits the vulnerable hardest” Campaign Director, Rebecca Ryan says, adding “but it’s also totally archaic and unpolicable. The BBC can only continue to raise funds this way through coercion and threats. It’s time for the BBC to join the 21st century and move onto a voluntary subscription model that covers just BBC content.”
The event takes place on Tuesday October 5th 2021, 4pm, Rylands Suite, Novotel.

In the letter, Grimes notes his concerns “that senior officers in the Metropolitan Police Force appear to be making significant operational decisions on the basis of media commentary and social media posting.”
In launching the complaint, Darren is demanding:

Darren Grimes has beaten the system yet again as the police investigation into whether or not he incited racial hatred by publishing an interview with David Starkey is closed. Keir Starmer will be disappointed…
As Guido reported last week was likely, the Police have formally closed the overzealous and clearly political investigation. In a letter to Grimes, a senior Detective Inspector wrote…
You are no longer required to attend the police station as the decision has been made to close the investigation.
Toby Young of the Free Speech Union, who helped Darren fight back tells Guido:
“I’m delighted for Darren Grimes and David Starkey, but things might have turned out very differently if they hadn’t been members of the Free Speech Union. The police and the CPS need to stop abusing the law to try and regulate speech and debate. It’s not their job to investigate thought crimes.”
They would have got away with were it not for that pesky Free Speech Union…
Responding to the news, Darren said “I am delighted to be free from months, if not years, of yet more legal drama occupying my life.” This should never have happened in the first place. Read the police’s letter to Grimes in full here:
Newsnight kicked up a storm last night after Len McCluskey was broadcast in an interview with the BBC’s Lewis Goodall, saying Peter Mandelson – who has Jewish heritage – should go away and “count his gold”. A classic antisemitic trope. This morning McCluskey apologised. In other words…
