Yesterday I agreed to go onto Channel 4 7pm news to talk about the economic crisis and the problems with the run away deficit. Late in the afternoon they sounded me out on my views. They probed my thoughts on George Osborne more than on the economy. I told them I would want to move the interview on to the real issues quickly, as there was nothing more to say about George, who had made a good full statement earlier that day.
Shortly afterwards I was told I had been cancelled.
They are becoming like the BBC. They want to run unimportant and non stories, and do not want hard hitting analysis of the real crisis facing our country.
