Ash Sarkar on finding your voice, social media backlash and dream politics
Play • 39 min
This week on She Started It with Angelica Malin, I’m in the studio with Ash Sarkar. Ash is a 27-year old journalist and political activist, serving as a senior editor at Novara Media. She contributes to the Guardian and The Independent, as well as featuring on TV programmes such as Question Time, Good Morning Britain, Sky News and Daily Politics. The Times has described her as "Britain's loudest Corbynista", and Dazed Magazine said she is one of "the voices resetting the political agenda in the UK". Ash shot to fame after footage went viral after she appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain to discuss the Stop Trump march, telling presenter Piers Morgan: “I’m literally a communist, you idiot.” Over the past year she has become one of the country’s leading left-wing political commentators. I chat to Ash about going what it’s like going viral, social media backlash, finding your voice and why her dream housemate in Celebrity Big Brother would be Anthony Joshua.
