“London is a shithole.”
My words to Sky News in January of 2018, when host Gamal Fahnbulleh attempted to shame me on national television for supporting President Donald Trump in his alleged statement about “shithole countries.”
Well, I didn’t actually say “London is a shithole,” I said “London’s turning into a shithole under Sadiq Khan.”
Fahnbulleh and his Sky producers were apoplectic. They first dropped my feed half way through the interview, and when I doubled down, they cut the whole thing short.
Actor John Cleese – best known for Monty Python and Fawtly Towers – appears to agree with me.
Yeah, he never said “shithole,” but I reckon he meant it.
