CON­TRO­VER­SIAL Mus­lim au­thor and TV pre­sen­ter Yass­min Ab­del- Magied is mov­ing to Lon­don in or­der to “par­take in the Aussie rite of pas­sage”.

The host of axed ABC TV show Aus­tralia Wide, who courted con­tro­versy with a Face­book post on An­zac Day, took to so­cial me­dia yes­ter­day to de­clare she was leav­ing Aus­tralia for the English cap­i­tal, say­ing: “Folks, it’s been fun, but I’m off to par­take in the Aussie rite of pas­sage – I’m mov­ing to Lon­don!” It comes a week af­ter an ex­ten­sive series of posts in which Ab­del- Magied claimed she had been “trau­ma­tised” by “deeply racist crit­i­cism” of her.

And she also courted con­tro­versy over a dis­agree­ment with politi­cian Jac­qui Lam­bie on ABC TV.
