Lineker Schmineker

I think it might simplify life if it were understood that nothing on Twitter, the Cloaca Magna of postmodernity, is worthy of serious attention. Lineker’s ignorance of history doesn’t appear to detract from his popularity as a football commentator, and his utterances on social media are plainly so palpably ill-informed and ludicrous that they might reasonably be regarded as light entertainment, the kind of vapourings you might hear from a bar fly attempting to put the world to rights at 11.p.m. on a Thursday. Basil Fawlty might be good on Match of the Day
