AUSTRALIA POLITICS: Yassmin Abdel-Magied Moving to UK to Partake in Aussie Rite of Passage

Controversial activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied has revealed on social media she is moving to London.

The television host, writer and mechanical engineer announced the move on Twitter, posting a picture of herself with the caption:

“#GearingUpForANewAdventure. Folks, it’s been fun, but I’m off to partake in the Aussie rite of passage – I’m moving to London! 💖 #inshallah,” Ms Abdel-Magied wrote in a tweet yesterday afternoon.

Ms Abdel-Magied said in a series of tweets last week she was “re-entering the ring” after being “traumatised” following an Anzac Day Facebook post which prompted a political firestorm.

She wrote on Facebook on April 25 this year: “LEST. WE. FORGET. (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine…).”

Last week, she claimed the fallout from the post — which drew criticism from several senior politicians — had not blown over.

“Staying silent left a vacuum that other voices gleefully filled with hate and vitriol that was deeply racist,” she said.

“If I stay silent, then ‘they’ win. Then others get to define the narrative. Then those with deep institutional power are able to silence … (and) I can’t abide that.”

She also sparked outrage earlier this year when she declared on the ABC’s Q&A program that Islam was “the most feminist religion”.

Her ABC program Australia Wide was scrapped by the ABC in May. The national broadcaster said its decision to remove the show was not due to the backlash over her Anzac Day comments.

ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie also said the tweet had breached the broadcaster’s social media policy but the decision to axe the show was not related to the Facebook post.
