The Yorkshire Post Says: Sarah Champion should not have felt need to resign for speaking out against grooming gangs

Sarah Champion should not have felt the need to resign from the Labour front bench for speaking out in The Sun newspaper about the grooming gangs known to have systematically sexually abused young children, on occasion to an industrial scale.

The Yorkshire MP was only doing that which Professor Alexis Jay previously identified was sorely lacking from the Rotherham case where the fear of being labelled racist prevented the authorities from being able to confront a glaring yet uncomfortable truth, letting down abuse victims in the process.

It was not the Rotherham MP’s intention to demonise a section of society. Like everyone else, she knows the perpetrators of such vile, degrading crimes represent a tiny proportion of the entire population and are not entirely from one ethnic group. But she, like everyone else, knows too that so many of the sickening cases to come to light in Rotherham, Rochdale and Newcastle have involved men who share a certain profile.

  1. Wouldn’t she have made a far stronger statement for the victims of these people if she had let Corbyn sack her? Sounds to me as though she bottled this, when the push came to the shove.

  2. Champion was niave for writing for a murdoch rag like the scum and its trackrecord of wapping, union bashing, orgreave, hillsbrough and hacking/milly dowler etc

    However she was brave for her comments that were in context for cse grooming in places like rochdale, rotherham, west yorkshire, oxford and bristol who were predomintly from kashmiri community. The victims were also kashmiri who were raped and abused.

    Just as those that failed to alert the public and safeguard young people or turned a blind eye and covered up were white – Same as for paedaphilia for establishment, childrens homes, celebrity and religious were mostly white.
