The Member of Parliament for Rotherham told the Telegraph she has required enhanced police security since she made her remarks, and that “If a stranger comes up to me I’m wary, which is difficult because my job as an MP is to be in the public domain.”
“Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls,” Champion wrote in her Sun article in 2017.
“For too long we have ignored the race of these abusers and, worse, tried to cover it up. No more. These people are predators and the common denominator is their ethnic heritage.”
Whether or not Champion’s sentiments were “racist” they were evidently too unpalatable for the Labour Party’s hard-left, pro-multiculturalism leadership, who promptly expelled her from the Shadow Cabinet.
The furious reaction to Champion’s more or less uncontestable observation is all the more surprising considering she is by no means a right-winger, let alone ‘far-right’, as her politically correct comments to the Telegraph help underline.
Radical Islamist turned Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz, as head of the Quilliam counter-extremism think tank, has previously published research which he says indicates 84 percent of grooming gang members are Muslims of South Asian descent.
