Returning to television for the first time since the migrant tweet scandal, Gary Lineker pokes fun at the BBC.


GARY Lineker, returning to TV screens after the migrant tweet row, has poked fun at the BBC.

The 62-year-old host of Match of the Day took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to share his excitement at being allowed to focus solely on football with his followers.


After being suspended from his Match of the Day presenting duties for criticizing Suella Braverman’s migrant boats plan, the BBC’s highest-paid presenter, at £1.35 million per year, is returning to TV.

The former Barcelona forward took to Twitter to criticize the Illegal Migration Bill, which would prevent refugees who arrive in Britain in small boats from settling there.

As he put it in an email, “This is just an immeasurably cruel policy directed at the most vulnerable people in language that is not dissimilar to that used by Germany in the ’30s, and I’m out of order?”

Within 28 days of their detention, the bill mandates that migrants be returned to their home country or a safe third state.
