Gary Lineker On Have I Got News For You Prompts Keyboard Fury


Gary Lineker has been accused of “mocking the elderly” and “promoting anti-Brexit propaganda” after making a joke while presenting Have I Got News For You.

The footballing legend was hosting the programme, clearly billed for 26 years as a satirical comedy show, when he made a jibe about comments made by Britain’s ambassador to the EU.

He said: “The ambassador to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, has announced a Brexit deal could take 10 years.

“That’s not fair, most of the people who voted for it will be dead by then.”

The Express labelled the joke “dark”.

<strong>The Express's take.</strong>
The Express's take.

Others agreed.

Although this gent was pulled up on his statement.

Lineker himself appeared to have had a lovely time presenting the show.

And he did have a lot of fans.
