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.

During the disturbance, Leicester fans were caught on camera singing songs about Gibraltar - as well as chants about the Battle of Britain.
