Lineker’s foul tirade


AS a football striker, Gary Lineker was world class. As a political commentato­r, he’s bottom of the league.

By equating Tory immigratio­n plans with Nazi Germany – one of history’s most evil regimes – he showed a level of ignorance that was both staggering and offensive.

BBC News chief Deborah Turness has made a good start in tackling the Left-wing bias at the Corporatio­n. Isn’t it time she showed Lineker, the epitome of the virtuesign­alling, metropolit­an elite, a red card?

YOU may think Wayne Couzens getting an extra 19 months for indecent exposure is almost irrelevant given that he is serving a whole life term for killing sarah everard.

But it matters. When I was 14, I was on a train with my grandmothe­r when the man sitting opposite us began pleasuring himself.

He sat there with a horrible smirk on his face, knowing there was nothing we could do.

I don’t think I’ll ever forget it: the shock and the shame remain.
