Nadine Dorries apologies for mixing "two brown" women

Tuesday 05th February 2019 12:30 EST

Nadine Dorries, has apologised for mixing up two British Asian women who both work in politics. The MP for Mid Bedfordshire tweeted a video with Ash Sarkar in it - she's a political journalist at Novara Media.

Ms Sarkar "may be" the prospective candidate for Chingford and Woodford Green, but it was actually Faiza Shaheen in the tweet.

Both women responded to the initial mistake on Twitter whereby Ms Shaheen accused Ms Dorries of thinking all "brown women" look the same.

The tweet has now been deleted from Nadine Dorries' account, but she had shared a video from another account.
