Barry on Channel 4 News

This week, Barry appeared on Channel 4 news alongside Culture Minister, Karen Bradley to discuss the election and challenge the Conservatives on the contents of their manifesto.


In the interview, Barry called the Conservatives out for making a U-turn on their social care promises. Barry said 'The Conservatives are pitting the old against the young in a race to the bottom that will leave everyone worse off!'

Barry also challenged Karen Bradley on Theresa May's breakfast plan for schools. Under the plan, Theresa May want to spend 6.8p per pupil on breakfast. Barry asked the Minister to tell him how many cornflakes that is. The answer? Not very many!
