Labour’s equalities spokeswoman was forced to resign yesterday after saying that “Britain has a problem with British-Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls”.
Sarah Champion, MP for Rotherham and shadow equalities minister, was asked to step down by Jeremy Corbyn. She had written a newspaper column drawing attention to inadequate support for victims of child grooming.
It was written after 17 men and a woman — mostly British-born and from Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Iraqi, Indian, Iranian and Turkish communities — were convicted in Newcastle of 90 sex and drug offences including rape, sexual activity with a child, conspiracy to incite prostitution and child trafficking. One gang member said: “All white women are only good for one thing. For men like me to f*** and use like trash.”
