Steve Baker calls for Guru-Murthy sacking after accepting apology. What a c… (STRONG LANGUAGE)

Steve Baker: what a- well, I think the description is now best described as rhyming slang for his Tory colleague Jeremy Hunt.

Tory MP Steve Baker has said he hopes Channel 4 sacks journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy after telling him he “appreciates” an apology for being called something very rude, live on air.

The incident occurred after what Guru-Murthy called a “very robust” interview on events in Westminster yesterday.

Suella Braverman resigned as home secretary, chief whip Wendy Morton and her deputy Craig Whittaker reportedly threatened to quit, and it was alleged that Tory MPs were bullied into supporting the government in a vote on fracking that was seen as a mark of confidence in Liz Truss’s government.

After the interview concluded, this happened:

Obviously it shouldn’t have but it did – and Guru-Murthy later reported in a tweet that he had “reached out” to Baker to apologise.

Baker then accepted the apology: “I appreciate you apologising. Thank you,” he wrote.

But Baker then told John Pienaar on Times Radio that he hoped Channel 4 would sack Guru-Murthy.

He said: “If it’s in breach of his code of conduct, I do hope they sack him – it would be a service to the public.”

Accepting an apology for a transgression and then demanding further action over it is exactly the behaviour of the kind of person Guru-Murthy had described, in his description of the MP.

So there it is. Steve Baker – what a … “Jeremy Hunt”.

    having cake and eating it too – wish his aspirations for the country he and his friends have totally ruined in the years since 2010 were as high as his attempt to bully the resignation by media of a decent man.
