Labour Candidate Who Spoke Out About Abuse Deselected

Readers will remember Amina Lone, the Muslim Labour councillor who defended Sarah Champion and spoke out about abuse by some British-Pakistani men. Just days later, Cllr Lone has been barred from re-standing by the Labour Party. They are using a spurious allegation that her attendance record isn’t up to scratch, but at the Manchester Evening News points out this is a highly unusual course of action. Cllr Lone and her allies believe she is being stitched up as punishment for her outspoken campaigning. Certainly seems quite a remarkable coincidence, especially given Lone is highly-rated in sensible Labour circles. The chilling reality of what happens to a young Muslim Labour woman who speaks out…

Muslim Labour Candidate: Champion is Brave Not Racist

As virtue-signalling offence-taking Corbynistas succeed in getting Sarah Champion kicked out of the Shadow Cabinet, worth listening to (non-practicing) Muslim Labour candidate Amina Lone on Newsnight. She says Champion has been “used as a scapegoat” and was “an easy target“. Lone, whose was born to Pakistani parents, says she is “despairing” about Champion’s resignation because these “difficult conversations” need to be had. She says on Twitter:

“I grew up in a Muslim community where these attitudes were common. “White girls are easy” “Nobody cares about them” “They are just slags” “They parents don’t look after them properly” etc were/are still said today. I hear it regularly. Sarah Champion was talking about a particular type of grooming which is carried by men because of their cultural/religious practices. Obvs not all men. She is not a racist but a brave woman speaking out about a politically awkward issue. Labour, bury your heads as much as you like in the black & white purist world you push. The chickens will come home to roost.”

Will any Labour politician dare to speak out about this important issue following Champion’s sacking? This is a dangerous precedent…
