In response to Gary Oliver: £1.75m a year? For that? Time to show ‘People’s Vote’ Lineker the BBC exit, Malcolm Parkin wrote:
Of course, Lineker simply has to be a socialist. You need to be rich to be a good Bible-thumping socialist, and all the high-profile socialists are indeed very rich. Bob Geldof and Midge Ure and Sting and Billy Bragg and Eric Clapton and Glenda Jackson and so on. And the late John Lennon of course, the daddy of them all, singing piously in Imagine about a world that should do without the evil of money.
I wonder if they realise how daft they sound.
