Ali Milani: ‘Why I ran to unseat Boris Johnson’ | Real Talk

What inspired a 24-year-old Muslim politician to run against then-Prime Minister Boris Johnson?

In this episode of Real Talk, we chat with Ali Milani, who in 2019 ran as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip against Johnson.

Milani opens up about his decision to run, his experience with Islamophobia inside the Labour Party, and the book he wrote chronicling the campaign.
