    Last week Sarah Champion, the Labour Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, wrote an article for the Sun newspaper on the grooming gangs.

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4218648/british-pakistani-men-raping-exploiting-white-girls/

    Her article started with: “BRITAIN has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls.

    There. I said it. Does that make me a racist? Or am I just prepared to call out this horrifying problem for what it is?”

    She has been roundly criticised for it, called a racist by the left, and condemned for discussing the issue.

    She tried to backtrack today by saying that the editors changed some of her wording, but it has since come out that she – and her team – approved the final copy.

    Today Sarah Champion resigned her position.

    There is some speculation she was forced to resign for openly talking about the uncomfortable truth on these grooming gangs, others have suggested her greatest crime was writing for the Sun, either way general opinion is that she was forced out because she decided to highlight this issue.

    Sarah Champion is the MP for Rotherham

      It was confirmed late last night by Jeremy Corbyn’s office that he asked Sarah Champion to stand down.

      He sent this tweet yesterday.

      The irony is that Naz Shah is the MP who called for the deportation of all Jews, and has been vocal in her anti semitism. There is something wrong with their moral compass to condemn an MP speaking out about a problem in her constituency but support an open anti semite.

    How long until Trump is looking for a new Chief of Staff….. Though I don’t think this one will wait to be fired going on these images.

    There’s a reasonable possibility most of Tump’s appointments will be short-term.
    In fact, there’s still a very reasonable possibility even Trump’s appointment will be ? 😳
