UK: Rap star Dave hits back at Priti Patel interview defending the PM

Dave has continued his attack on “racist” Boris Johnson following the rap star’s politically charged Brit Awards performance.

The 21-year-old accused the prime minister of being a “real racist” at Tuesday night’s awards ceremony, while he also criticised the media’s treatment of the Duchess of Sussex.

The Londoner has now sought to reinforce his claims as he responded to Home Secretary Priti Patel’s condemnation of the rap star’s comments about Mr Johnson as “utter nonsense” and “highly inappropriate”.

In a video posted on Twitter, Dave highlighted a series of Mr Johnson’s past remarks following Ms Patel’s declaration – made to Kay Burley on Sky News – that the prime minister “is not a racist at all”.

These included Mr Johnson’s reference to “flag-waving piccaninnies” in a 2002 article for The Daily Telegraph; and his description of “Aids-ridden choristers” in an article in the same year for The Spectator magazine, following a trip to Uganda.
