Channel 4 News Political Editor gives his take on the latest news and gossip from the corridors of power in Westminster and beyond.
Gary Gibbon has been Channel 4 News Political Editor since 2005. He gives his take on the latest news and gossip from the corridors of power in Westminster and beyond.
Gary has worked on four general elections for Channel 4 News. His interview with Peter Mandelson in 2001 triggered the Northern Ireland Secretary's second resignation from the Cabinet.
In 2006, he won the Royal Television Society Home News Award with Jon Snow for the scoop on the Attorney General's Legal Advice on Iraq. Gary also revealed details of Blair's pre-War meeting with George Bush n 2008 and won the Political Studies Association Broadcast Journalist of the Year award.
The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has insisted his country is grateful for the support of its Western allies, a sentiment echoed by Rishi Sunak, who said he understood Mr Zelenskyy’s desire to do everything in his power to stop Russia’s war.
“Ukraine’s future is in Nato” – just not quite yet – that is the message from the alliance meeting in Vilnius today.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has pledged to reform education to break what he said were the low expectations holding back working class children.
The Cabinet Office has ruled there was a prima facie breach of the rules by former civil servant Sue Gray – when she failed to declare a conversation she had with the Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer about a potential job.
A group of Boris Johnson’s most vociferous parliamentary supporters have been accused of taking part in a “coordinated campaign” of abuse against the Privileges Committee when it was investigating whether the former Prime Minister lied to the Commons.
Ministers have admitted that their new illegal migration policy will have to deter nearly four in 10 small boat crossings before it saves money for the taxpayer.
It’s not just the workers in Kent he met today that Rishi Sunak needs to reassure about the pressure of rising interest rates.
MPs are in the middle of an unprecedented debate – on whether they should confirm that Boris Johnson – who was still Prime Minister this time last year – deliberately lied to parliament.
Long-awaited, but much more hard hitting than anticipated, the Privileges Committee report condemned Boris Johnson for repeatedly misleading MPs and – despite his protestations to the contrary – undermining the committee itself.
Boris Johnson has called for the resignation of a senior member of the Privileges Committee after allegations were published online that Conservative MP Sir Bernard Jenkin had also attended a party during covid restrictions.
Rishi Sunak says Boris Johnson asked him to bend the rules in order to get peerages for his mates – something which Sunak says he refused to do.
One of the less bizarre things about yesterday was that Boris Johnson made his Parliamentary hairdresser an OBE in his resignation honours list. It’s what he seems to be doing to his own party that is truly startling. Mr Johnson’s resignation has triggered a total of three by-elections – so far.
Rishi Sunak has been holding a press conference in the White House with President Biden.
Our political editor Gary Gibbon talked to the Prime Minister earlier today.
Ongoing support for the people of Ukraine will be on the agenda this evening when Rishi Sunak meets Congressional leaders in Washington. And tomorrow the Prime Minister will have talks with President Biden.
