RMT boss Mick Lynch jokes he won’t talk to GB News during press conference: ‘Is Farage here?’

Mick Lynch joked that he wouldn’t speak to GB News during a press conference on Thursday, asking “is Nigel Farage here?” as the reporter asked her question.

The RMT chief was updating the press on a meeting he had with transport secretary Mark Harper when he made the comments.
