Chuka Umunna"It is appalling that the Conservatives are threatening to review Channel 4's broadcasting remit if they win the general election in a pathetic attempt to cover up for Boris Johnson's own cowardice," Liberal Democrats Shadow Foreign Secretary Chuka Umunna says

"Trying to intimidate the media like this is straight out of Donald Trump's playbook and has no place in an open and inclusive democracy.

"Time and again Johnson has tried to duck scrutiny for his repeated lies and damaging Brexit plans. This election is a chance to deny Boris Johnson the majority he is taking for granted, by voting for the Liberal Democrats so we can take seats off the Tories across the country."
