In 7 General Elections as anchor @Channel4News , after weeks of requests,Theresa May is the first serving PM to refuse me an interview why?

No wonder the young voted so strongly to Remain: they are now about to lose the right to study, live, love, and work in 27 other countries

Thatcher, Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May. For 29 years at I have interviewed the Prime Minister of the day at their party conference - until today. has refused to appear on tonight; unprecedented & disappointing

Were any other country on Earth doing what is being done in Gaza, there would be worldwide uproar

Let's get it clear: No deal does NOT mean we don't leave the EU: it just means we crash out..Oh and by the way: Sony are abandoning their headquarters in the UK and setting up in Holland.
