Linker has publicly criticized the British government’s plans to stop irregular asylum seekers.

Prominent England footballer Gary Lineker has said he will continue to stand up for the “voiceless” following criticism for his tweets about the British government’s asylum policy.

Linker, who presents the BBC sports programme, described the language in which the plan was drawn up as “not dissimilar to the language used in Germany in the 1930s”.

British Home Secretary Zoella Braverman commented on the reports, saying she felt “disappointed”.

For its part, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) intervened after the reports, saying it had a “frank conversation” with Linger, who works for it, and reassured him of the need for physical neutrality.
