Britain is entering a new phase in her history, regaining an independent voice and charting a new path into the 21st Century. This is what we would call an unfrozen moment, a window in time when opportunities for positive change become possible for those with the vision to see the things that might be, and the courage to pursue them.
In times like these, the news media has the opportunity to elevate the national conversation by providing facts, reasoned debate and constructive conversations that can help citizens become better informed and feel heard rather than ignored and overlooked.
We invested in GB News because we hope it will bring something new and fresh to the public conversation. Enabling debates to happen openly and honestly can provide an antidote to division and tribalism and allow the nation to have the conversations it needs to have, to move forward, together. Our sincere hope is that those in leadership across all spheres of society will use this unfrozen moment to help shift the national conversation beyond a focus on who is getting what to who we are becoming.
Legatum believes that GB News will become a trusted news source, not by preaching or instructing the public, but rather by respecting and listening to people, providing valuable content for all and contributing to a more prosperous and inclusive Great Britain. Success will not just be judged by viewing figures or advertising revenue, however important, but something more fundamental – the fact that Britain has once again found her voice.
