They thought it was all over, but turns out it was just beginning.

The Gary Lineker saga took a dramatic extension on Friday after the BBC removed him from the Match of the Day for his perfectly justified criticism of the government’s immigration policy.

Here’s what the BBC had to say about it.

“The BBC have had extensive discussions with Gary and his team over the last few days. We have said that we consider his recent social media activity a violation of our policies.

“The BBC has decided that he will step down from presenting the Match of the Day until we have an agreed and clear position on his use of social media.”

Things escalated further when Lineker’s colleagues Ian Wright and Alan Shearer both said they would not be appearing as a gesture of solidarity with the Match of the Day presenter.

Here’s what Wright had to say.

And clippers.

And then commentators from BBC Sport said they would not be attending either. Here’s what one of them, Steve Wilson, had to say.

It has been quite a day for the BBC after the Guardian reported that it was not airing an episode of David Attenborough’s new flagship series for fear of offending right-wingers.

Which brings us back to Lineker, whose future at the BBC is in limbo. These 23 tweets probably best sum up where we are right now.
