Earlier today Gary Lineker condemned the Government for posting Brexit “propaganda” after the Treasury shared a video stating duty-free shopping with the EU will be permitted if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. The Treasury posted a Tweet, accompanied by a seven-second video, that said: “Duty-free shopping with the EU is coming back if we leave without a deal. “People travelling to Eu countries will be able to buy beer, spirits, wine and tobacco without duty being applied in the UK.”
But the sports broadcaster condemned the post for “advertising” the benefits of a no deal.
Mr Lineker wrote on Twitter: “This seems like propaganda.
“They’ve also resorted to advertising for cheaper cigarettes in a country where virtually all tobacco advertising is prohibited.”
Brexiteer Kate Andrews has responded to the former professional football, saying she is “tired” of Mr Lineker’s fake outrage at the benefits of a no deal Brexit.
She said: “So tired of people faking outrage – suspect Gary Lineker didn’t consider duty free products to be ‘propaganda’ until he could use it as an anti-Brexit talking point.
“I also wish rich people would stop trying to put up barriers to less rich people buying cheaper goods.”
People responded to Ms Andrews rage by congratulating her for calling Mr Lineker out.
One person wrote: “Well said Kate.”
It was argued in court that the Prime Minister was proroguing Parliament for longer than normal to force through Brexit, blocking opposition MPs from properly debating and scrutinising his plans.
Although an earlier judge in the Court of Session in Edinburgh had rejected their case, an appeal in front of three judges today backed the Remainers.
Gary Lineker tweeted “Well played” with two clapping emojis as he shared the news the Remainers had won the case.
But social media users responded with fury, with one person saying: “Well played, really!!Continuing to stop democracy and further causing damage to the country is well played? We will leave so this is just damaging for no reason.”
Another said: “Well done on applauding people who are blocking a democratic vote.
“If this was a less respectful nation there would be riots because of this.
“If this was Hong Kong, for example, the riots and protests would go on for weeks. Total bulls**** that Brexit is being blocked.”
The Government is set to appeal the case in London’s Supreme Court next week.
