Sayeeda Warsi on Islamophobia, the changing face of Conservative politics and human rights policy
Sayeeda Warsi was the first Muslim woman to serve in British Cabinet. She was appointed to the House of Lords in 2007 and resigned from the Cabinet in 2014 over the Conservative Party's policy towards the Israeli Gaza conflict. 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.
