Sayeeda Warsi on Islamophobia, the changing face of Conservative politics and human rights policy

Sayeeda Warsi was the first Muslim MP to serve in British Cabinet. She resigned in 2014 over the Conservative Party’s policy towards the Isaeli Gaza conflict, and has since been appointed as a life peer in the House of Lords.

She talks to Krishnan about wanting an inquiry into Islamophobia in the Tory Party, why she thinks politics has gone backwards and how a globally adopted human rights policy would change things.
