Gary Lineker And The Sun Child Refugee Row Steps Up A Notch With ‘Calls To Fire Him’

The Sun quotes two Tory MPs who question whether Lineker is overstepping the mark by getting involved in the furore.

One, David TC Davies, said: “I hope he apologises. I question if the BBC should be employing him when he seems to be using his fame to push out his rather emotive and controversial views.”

Lineker’s spokesman told The Sun: “He won’t be commenting, especially not to you.”

Some people suggested the paper was being hypocritical with its accusations.
