The MP facing the cost of justice as Rotherham abuse fight goes on
AN ABUSE scandal so shocking she thought she would ‘lose her mind’, a Labour party on which some had turned their backs, and a TV crew in tow have made life for Rotherham’s MP radically different from the job she might have expected when she took over in 2012.
Sarah Champion has told how she has had to battle her own way through the abuse scandal, setting up a victims HQ in her office as girls and women identified in the Jay report turned to her rather than trust again the police or the council.
The move made her a hate figure for some in Rotherham’s Labour party, with many making clear they will not campaign for her on the doorstep, a local election strategy that has been vital to Labour party success for generations.
