The former England and Leicester Tigers out-half Andy Goode appeared on Nigel Farage’s show GB News. A lot of people aren’t happy with this and rightfully so as Farage has done serious damage to the UK with being the main mad that got Britain out of Europe.
See some of the comments below and Andy Goode trying to defend himself ..
Ball firmly dropped here. Shame to see rugby on such a vile, bigoted, targeting platform. https://t.co/3zIwaUAX8U

For all the haters and helmets out there we chatted rugby and no politics! Haters will still hate though! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, some have anger issues if you don’t agree with theirs though! https://t.co/3WOXfNUCuT

I read that as Talking the Piss?
Mostly love your chat on rugby. You and Big Jim were a big help to me in lockdown.
However, on politics from what I can gather "our views are not aligned".
Won`t be catching up on your conversation with Jungle Nige. LOL.

Pull the other one mate. He has no more value to any platformed rugby conversation than any other punter down the pub if even. You know as well as us that this is tacit support for the guy who brought the catastrophe of brexit. No one is fooled.
Like chatting about Wimbledon with Enoch Powell, or the Grand National with Oswald Mosley.
Disingenuous of you. Don’t double down on a dreadful error. Spitting ‘helmets and haters’ is sloppy at best . If you are genuinely someone who’ll break bread with Farage I’ll pass on the pod because some things are more important than rugby. They’re called principles.
Very naive to believe you can work with that man, and it not be construed as condoning his politics. After all, all he is a wannabepolitician, and that is what you are giving oxygen to. I won’t unfollow as others have, as I’m not that petty, but for me it is an error of judgment
