Nish Kumar’s takedown of Stanley Johnson’s Islamophobia will have you cheering

Probably not many people were watching Channel 4’s general election coverage and if this clip is anything to go by, it’s for the best.

It’s the prime minister’s father Stanley Johnson talking about burqas and, well, you’re going to have to watch it for yourself.

His comments generated no shortage of outrage on Twitter, but the best response came on the C4 programme itself, from the great Nish Kumar who said this.

And just a few of the things people were saying about it.

Kumar wasn’t the only one of the panellists to put Johnson entirely in his place. Katherine Ryan will have you cheering too.

And just in case you’re a sucker for this sort of thing, here’s a longer clip of Johnson, Kumar and everyone else.
