Nigel Farage was back on GB News on Wednesday to interview Stanley Johnson about the latest headlines as part of his “Talking Pints” segment.

“What has GB news turned into!…..” one disgruntled viewer replied to the clip of Stanley and Nigel, while a second argued: “Much better than anything else at 7pm at the moment.”
