Labour MP quits over her ‘Pakistani rapists’ article

A LABOUR mp who said the country had a ‘problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls’ has resigned from the shadow cabinet.

Sarah Champion yesterday apologised ‘for the offence caused by the extremely poor choice of words in The Sun article on Friday’.

The MP for Rotherham added: ‘I am concerned that my continued position in the shadow cabinet would distract from the crucial issues around child protection which I have campaigned on my entire political career. It is therefore with regret that I tender my resignation as shadow secretary of state for women and equalities.’
