Some Liverpool fans react to Gary Neville ripping into ex-Conservative MP on TV

Posted by

Gary Neville can be a sometimes divisive figure when it comes to his football analysis, though several Liverpool fans were keen to praise the former Manchester United ace for his comments on Good Morning Britain.

The 46-year-old challenged former Conservative MP, Edwina Currie, over her ‘dangerous’ claims with regard to universal credit payments.

The ex-politician controversially claimed that a considerable proportion of universal credit claimants were taking the opportunity to stay at home.

A number of Liverpool fans on the Twittersphere shared their opinions on the former fullback’s comments, praising the pundit for taking a stand.

It’s unfortunate to hear certain opinions – as encapsulated by Currie’s comments – that appear entirely out of touch with reality and based on manufactured stereotypes of sections of the populace.

Though we at the EOTK don’t always see eye to eye with Neville over his analysis of Liverpool, we can certainly appreciate the importance of the Salford City co-owner offering some much-needed balance in the clip in question.
