Quote of the day 2nd September 2017

"If I'm on the floppy left, to be accused of racism is probably the worst thing you can call me. That fear will motivate me to step away from a lot of topics I'd maybe tackle head on if I didn't have that phobia."

(Sarah Champion in today's Times.

Champion is Labour MP for Rotherham where the independent Jay Report found that there had been failures to deal with child abuse on a very serious scale. She was sacked from Labour's front bench last month for writing a press article which attempted to address some of the very difficult issues in this area.)
