Winston Churchill impersonator appears on GB News to mark funeral anniversary
In what is perhaps a sign that they are struggling to book current politicians as guests, GB News summoned the ghost of Winston Churchill in the form of an impersonator and interviewed him as if he was the actual living Churchill.
In a segment to commemorate the anniversary of Churchill's funeral, Anne Diamond and Stephen Dixon interviewed Stan Streather in character as "Winstan Churchill" about how he would fare if he was the prime minister in the present day.
"I was the right man at the right moment. I don't think I could probably survive in the current climate although one would give it a go, of course," Streather/ Churchill said.
Later, breaking character he explained he has "great fondness for the great man" trying to "keep a piece of history alive" and also noted: "When you look like this, there's not a lot else you can do."
On my show tomorrow: Socrates, Genghis Khan, Napoleon Bonaparte, Beethoven, Billy the Kid, Sigmund Freud, Joan of Arc & Abraham Lincoln. They *all* furiously condemn anybody still supporting Boris Johnson.\n(Hi @ed_solomon!)https://twitter.com/brokenbottleboy/status/1487814038964867079\u00a0\u2026
As someone who specialised in Churchill\u2019s relationship with the press over the course of two degrees, I can safely say he\u2019d never have appeared on GB News in any form.https://twitter.com/writesbright/status/1487727272975126528\u00a0\u2026
