Independent: Tyrone or not Tyrone: Katie Hopkins called out by Oxford student for snobbery

Last month Cherwell’s Matthew Broomfield interviewed Katie Hopkins, in which the former Apprentice star suggested that Oxford tutors should choose a ‘Cecil’ over a ‘Tyrone’. This prompted one Oxford student called Tyrone (there are no Cecils) to write an open letter to Hopkins, which went semi-viral.

I wrote up the dispute for The Independent.

On Monday morning, Tyrone took Hopkins to task live on Sky News. Against Hopkins – whose bombast I can imagine is overwhelming – he did a sterling job. See the video here.
