Gary Lineker speaks his mind on Qatar

Gary Lineker speaks his mind on Qatar

By Global

Gary Lineker tells us about the burger he shared with David Beckham in a hotel bar in Zurich the night before England was knocked out of the bid to host the 2018 Football world cup.

What happened next, he says, was unbelievable. Qatar - against virtually every single odd - was chosen to host the 2022 tournament. The REST, as they say IS HISTORY. Fast forward 12 years and Gary speaks of his responsibility to tell it like it is when he's out there - even if it annoys his Qatari hosts. We talk gay rights, UK gov response, Elon Musk and yes, even a bit of football.

Alicia Kearns, the new Chair of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, joins us in the second half to talk about the importance of taking a burner phone to the World Cup. And she gives her thoughts on the controversial reinstatement of current Home Secretary Suella Braverman.

And Lewis brings us up to date with the Brazilian eletion result - a knife edge result that sees the 'Trump of the Tropics' removed from power.
