Rupa Huq, Labour MP for Ealing Central and Acton since 2015 and former shadow crime minister, should consider a career in impersonation.
She did a spectacularly scathing impression of Boris Johnson on live television during a Channel 4 News discussion about the former foreign secretary’s insults of Muslim women.
“Oh, sorry, I just shagged your wife, didn’t realise, ooh!” she roared, to a nervous yet amused Krishnan Guru-Murthy.
Meant to say @Channel4News “The Boris of old was mildly amusing but the loveable rogue act’s worn thin and now he’s dangerously pandering to the far right” but never ended sentence… Thanks @krishgm for stepping in before I tried to throw in some Latin to top it off. pic.twitter.com/zspYrcYg9b

From a nation utterly depressed at the state of modern politics, thank you Rupa, for giving us a few seconds of merriment.
