    Sarah Champion quits over Sun article on “Pakistani men problem”

    Sarah Champion has quit the shadow cabinet following criticism over her article in The Sun on British-Pakistani men and child sex abuse.

They have not moved to oust Theresa May, hobbling on with an enfeebled PM purely out of a seething expediency.   Commentators on the left have discussed the relative merits of strategic silence during the summer lull in news.
