Sarah Champion Unresigns From Labour Frontbench

Sarah Champion, who resigned as a shadow minister on 28 June during the Labour coup, has written to Jeremy Corbyn to ask for her job back:

From: Sarah Champion
To: Jeremy Corbyn
Subject: Shadow minister role

Dear Jeremy

I would like to formally retract my resignation and ask to be reinstated to my role as Shadow Home Office minister for preventing abuse and domestic violence with immediate effect.

Kindest regards

Sarah Champion

Will he accept her back into the fold? Guido understands he is minded to say yes…

CONFIRMED: Corbyn accepts her unresignation and reinstates her to the shadow frontbench. LOLabour…

UPDATE: On 29 June Sarah Champion tweeted: “Jeremys position is no longer tenable if we’re to be effective”

Did she see Owen Smith’s polling and change her mind?

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
