As we approach May’s local elections, the Government continues to show it is focusing on the wrong things.

For nearly four decades, Channel 4 has created an endless list of brilliant, progressive and world-leading programmes. It is a great British success story, and doesn’t cost the public a penny.

And yet at a time when the Conservative Government should be focused on helping people during the biggest cost of living crisis in decades, with millions of people struggling to pay their bills, the Tories are obsessed with privatising Channel 4.

It’s a shameful decision and many constituents have contacted me to share their anger this week. Labour will fight it.
