Sources inform that Sarah Champion resigned earlier in the month after receiving criticism for writing an article, published in The Sun, in which she rigorously commented on very sensitive issue of sexual grooming, she said that Britain had a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls. Such weight able comments surely does not glorify her position.
But after her dynamic realisation, later she strongly apologised for causing offence and for the extremely poor choice of words in The Sun article and therefore quit her shadow cabinet post in the wake of the controversy.
Mr. Jeremy Bernard Corbyn the British politician who has been the leader of The Labour Party has appointed London MP Dawn Butler as his new shadow woman and equalities minister.
Announcing the new appointment, Mr. Corbyn said:“Dawn is a great champion for women, equality for all and our country’s diverse communities. I look forward to working closely with her to advance our agenda of a truly equal society that works for the many not the few. ”
Dawn Petula Butler is a British Labour Party Politician who has been the member of Parliament for Brent Central since the May 2015 general election. Ms. Butler said that she is honoured to accept the appointment and would like to thank Sarah Champion for all the hard work she has done in the role. She vividly said that Labour would tackle all forms of discrimination and the ways they interact and to that equality is equality, it cannot be picked and chosen. She has always fought for those who feel voiceless and will fight to deliver real equality in the country.
Ms. Butler, the Brent Central MP, served as Jeremy Corbyn’s Shadow Minister for Diverse Communities before resigning in February in order to defy the Labour whip and vote against the triggering of Article 50.
Mr. Corbyn said last week that Ms. Champion had been right to resign from the post because she had been wrong to designate an entire community as the problem of sexual grooming.
She was re-appointed to the post in June following the General Election, in which she significantly increased her majority. Ms. Butler served as MP for Brent Central between 2005 and 2010 before losing her seat to the Liberal Democrats, winning it back in 2015.
She is on the left of the Labour Party and is seen as an ally of Mr. Corbyn. During the election, she regularly introduced Corbyn at rallies, including his first campaign speech in Westminster Central Hall.
Butler even coined the joke that was repeated by some activists that there was one undisputed fact: June always marks the end of May.
