Iain Dale Shoots Down Leicester Violence Link To Brexit

Social media has said that Leicester fans fighting with Spanish police is Brexit personified. Iain Dale says that's nonsense.


Social media has turned on Leicester fans after they clashed with police in Madrid, blaming songs about Gibraltar and the fans' attitude on Brexit. Iain Dale won't accept that.

And Iain Dale was quick to shut that down - insisting the scenes were down to alcohol and nothing else.
