Julia Hartley-Brewer compared a bougie London borough to Iran, and people are very, very confused.

The broadcaster is known for her strong hot-takes on Twitter, which range from amusing to bizarre, but has she finally gone too far?

Huge crowds of people attending the funeral of assassinated general Qasem Soleimani = town houses and hipster brunch spots, apparently.

People had some questions of their own.

And many took it upon themselves to explain what Islington is really like.

Hopefully that clears that up.
