BBC guidelines give constantly Remoaning Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker complete carte blanche to carry on with his anti-Brexit campaign.
They state that BBC staff and freelancers working for BBC News and Current Affairs must not state or reveal publicly how they vote or express support for any political party, express a view for or against any policy which is a matter of current party political debate on subjects such as Brexit.
However, since Lineker works for BBC Sport the guidelines they do not apply to him.
Brexiteer Tory MP David Davies is less than impressed: “He has been given a platform to express his pro-EU, anti-controlled immigration ideology to all and sundry, but is in position of enormous responsibility, and it’s about time he acted as such.”
Although Lineker isn’t technically employed by the BBC he still obviously is in receipt of taxpayers money and this is the real scandal here, the complicity of the BBC in funding an effectively funding a vociferous campaign against Brexit by one of its prominent presenters with OUR MONEY.
