Blogger takes down the Heil over Lineker smear


Kudos to Tim Fenton of Zelo Street for this exposure of the Heil’s attitude to celebrities it can’t tame.

I think he’s right to say these rags do their best to hound out of the limelight anybody who is outspokenly opposed to their blinkered right-wing ideology and Gary Lineker, after showing the whole country the attitude we need to have towards refugees, was ripe for a ragging.

Except, of course, that all those involved – except Mr Lineker – have made fools of themselves. Here’s Mr Fenton to explain:

After the Murdoch goons at the Sun were unable to get Lineker sacked for showing compassion towards refugees, that paper and the Mail have been itching for vengeance, and today the Mail’s Sebastian Shakespeare has brought forth a steaming and pungent stack of whoppers to provide it: “How a loved up Gary Lineker and his ex Danielle shocked fellow passengers with their amorous display on-board a British Airways flight”.

There is more: “Lineker, polishing his halo after speaking out to support child refugees in Calais, displayed less than angelic behaviour on a British Airways plane to Italy in the early days of his romance with former wife Danielle Bux … According to fellow passenger Teresa Mahon, who shared the Club Class cabin with the loved-up couple, the former England striker and the Welsh lingerie model were on overly affectionate form during the London to Naples flight”.

This “story” is easy to disprove. We can do this by checking with British Airways what kind of planes they use on their London to Naples service.

Yes, this is alleged to have happened nine years ago, but the type of aircraft being used would have had a similar internal layout. And that layout, Sebastian Shakespeare, does not have a “Club Class cabin”. OH DEAR.

    Oh Please, who cares?!! So what if Gary got canoodly! The only thing the so called journalist (and I use that word loosely) is proving is that Gary is 100% Human, unlike the so called reporter who seems to be from the planet prude, when it suits them.

        Wow it sucked to be her!

        What exactly was the story then? And from nine years ago, if I was employing those reporters, I would sack them and employ decent ones.

    The Daily Fail has done it yet again and failed spectacularly with the help of their favourite lying muck dredger – Sebastian Shakespeare – or is it just his mind that’s a sewer and like most rats down there he’ll take anything that’s available and doesn’t mind what level he has to stoop to.
    Let’s hope a law suit is in the offing.

    It illustrates the depths to which these right wing fanatics will sink in order to try to discredit good people. I didn’t know much about Gary Lineker, prior to these disgusting smears, now I really admire the courageous man who is not afraid to speak his mind.
