Gary Neville says football's racism problem extends to UK politics by Guardian Football

There's not a thing you can disagree with here. As with everything, money trumps everything, including ethics. I'd like to think I would direct a club I owned, managed or played for to walk and leave the game behind.

The FA need to introduce points deductions for this kind of behaviour, fining clubs and banning individuals just doesn't work.

As for the clip itself, let's assume David Jones was being (poorly) directed to say what he said at the end. The reality is, balance isn't required in a debate like this. There's either racism or there isn't. This desire to entertain perceived balance in favour of representing the facts is why we have Brexit, anti-vaxxers and climate change sceptics.

Give us the facts, not opinions.
