Gary Lineker, BBC and Freedom of Speech - **Read OP**

    Having a read today that they're all pulling out of the match of the day show.

    People also cancelling their licence fees whatever that means?

    My view is that he is entitled to his opinion and the BBC are entitled to tell him where to go in breach of policies.

    He can spout his stuff freely but he can't be a representative of an unbiased news source for many.

    Didn't the same happen to the guy who did Top Gear show. Fell foul of the policies and had to move on.

    Don't get why all the woke crowd are trying to have him defended.

    The prime minister is entitled to formulate policy that seems consistent with the public's wishes.

    This is not another immigration thread. It is about the Lineker/BBC

    If anyone does want to continue down the route of discussing refugees/immigration you can expect threadbans
