Hugh Grant calls Priti Patel ‘the worst Home Secretary in British history’

Hugh Grant has called Priti Patel “the worst Home Secretary in British history”.

The actor took to social media to express his displeasure that Patel – who has held the role of Home Secretary since 2019 – posted a photo of long immigration queues at Heathrow Airport, which he described as “disgraceful and inhumane”.

When asked for more details about the photo, Grant replied: “It’s an immigration line. Which is staffed and managed by the Ministry of the Interior. We can’t call Brexiteers fat, but it’s a struggle sometimes.”

Grant has long been critical of the current British government. Earlier this month, it was revealed that Grant was the reason Benny Hill’s theme music was played in a program about Boris Johnson’s resignation, after he tweeted a message to political activist Steve Bray, who is responsible for his musical protests outside the House of Commons known is Westminster.

In January, the actor slammed the government over plans to abolish the license fee that funds the BBC, calling politicians “spit-stained crazy jobs” who “want to destroy” the company.

Then, in February, he showed his support for an anti-Boris Johnson march held in London, and in May ridiculed MPs’ support for Johnson amid the aftermath of Sue Gray’s report.

Last year, Grant accused the government of using the Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity to “enrich” its friends and donors.
