Dawn Butler has been appointed  as Labour’s  Shadow Women and E qualities Minister

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.
