Sajid Javid slams Trevor Noah’s claim of racist ‘backlash’ against Rishi Sunak

Former cabinet minister Sajid Javid has said Trevor Noah is “simply wrong” in claiming Rishi Sunak experienced a racist “backlash” after becoming the UK’s first British-Asian Prime Minister.In a video posted on Twitter from his US satirical news programme The Daily Show, presenter and comedian Noah alleged there were people saying “now the Indians are going to take over Great Britain”.Addressing the accusations, former chancellor and health secretary Mr Javid reshared the clip and wrote: “Simply wrong. A narrative catered to his audience, at a cost of being completely detached from reality.“Britain is the most successful multiracial democracy on earth and proud of this historic achievement.”
