Labour MP Rushanara Ali on harassment and abuse she received from a constituent


Well being a woman in power certainly doesn’t insulate you from harassment and abuse.

One Labour MP, Rushanara Ali, lived in constant fear after one of her constituents, Hussain Sha, bombarded her with hundreds of abusive emails, threatening to go to her office with a handgun.

He was sentenced to a three year community order this week. In her first TV interview since, she told me about her ordeal.
