Davies has stood by his call for dental checks.
In an interview with the Guardian – in which he incorrectly states the government are already using the tests – he said: “Should I try to say, ‘If dental tests are causing an issue and the wrist test is accurate, let’s go with the wrist one’?
“I don’t really mind. I can’t really see the analogy with slavery or concentration camps – but if that is the main sticking point here, fine, let’s do wrists. I don’t mind me being tested, by the way.
“No, no, no. Bring it on. If someone thinks this is outrageous, well I’ll be the first to volunteer. Come and X-ray my wrist. Have a look at my teeth. People are saying this is a really intrusive thing to do – well, I don’t feel intruded upon. What’s the problem?”
Lineker succinctly responded to the interview in another tweet.
