Trafficking and Harman.

A woman whos supposed mission is to rid British computer screens of the evil of human trafficking and the debasement of women by pimps and crinimals by whom we are all controlled it seems.....

Is party to the disbandment of the Human trafficking unit.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/7719662.stm

This unit does real work, they know what real trafficking is and who needs real help.

Yet there she is just days ago calling on fictional characters to zap hard working decent women who choose to earn a living a different way, whilst her party deny the real victims of the dirty end of the industry amuch needed lifeline.

This team has had some landmark cases and it is irresponsible to suddenly withdraw funds at this critical time

Even more galling when one realises that the sum 'saved' is roughly the same as that given to the man-hating radfems over at Poppycock with their stop-it-all agenda, false propaganda and minimal actual effectiveness.

minimal actual effectiveness.

I'd go as far as to say H.H. has shot herself in the foot and actually pointed a large proportion of interested parties from both sides of the poitical devide to come here and see for themselves that we are NOT all run by pimps or criminals, and that Professional independent career escorts do not need her wholesale untargeted "help"

H.H.'s recent tirade has I think had at least some opposite effect than she intended.

Instead of the whole of Parliament coming here for "reseach purposes" :confused: and going away shocked at the amount of pimping trafficking and foreign criminal gangs selling poor innocent farmers daughters

I think many right and fair thinking M.P.'s and researchers have actually seen for themselves there is a professional side to the business, where career women have decided to make a good living without emotional, physical damage and without the involvment of men other than as paying customers of their legitimate business.

Escorting is legal. H.H. wants to remove my right to work legally as I choose. H.H's victorian attitudes to women are an insult to her sex and a two fingered gesture to all independent free thinking women.

This is one instance where prostitutes are not going to lie back and think of england.

Well posted, Helen. I'd just add that the intention of criminalising people who could be potential informers makes the situation even more unacceptable.

TBF this isn't the first time such has happened.. snouts are usually villains, n'est pas? If you stand to go down for a stretch, you will be all the more willing to spill any beans you know.

There was a piece on the lunchtime news. A trafficked girl was interviewed. She said she was held prisoner in a brothel and made to have sex with clients. She said she asked the customers to phone the police, none did and some told her boss that she was trying to escape. It was not clear how the BBC came to interview her.

I can only speak for myself, but if I had the slightest doubt about whether a Working Girl was being held against her will, I would currently call Crime Stoppers, but I would not risk calling the police. If the new law is passed in its present form then I would not even call Crime Stoppers because even though this is an anonymous service, the risk of finding myself being subject to criminal procedings would simply be too great.

HH has joined a long puritan tradition and, as Macaulay observed:

The puritan hated bear baiting, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it gave pleasure to the spectators.

Hattie's attitude to prostitution is exactly the same.

good comments here:

No doubt the Met are simply responding to what they are finding "on the ground". It is doubtful that this unit would even have been set up if lobby groups had not consistently lied about trafficking and sex slavery in particular

This is why Operation Pentameter found a (proportionately) tiny number of victims of sex trafficking, and a large number of those who were found quickly vanished again at the first opportunity. And it is why the Met closed down this unit. They were chasing shadows

Don't forget that to some radical feminists, keeping trafficking in the news is extremely important - after all, it is the trojan horse that the Clause 13 of the Policing and Crime Bill is riding upon. The clause that seeks to criminalise all prostitution under the guise of fighting human trafficking.

It would be helpful (and not just from a PR perspective) if PunterNet could find a way to sponsor such an anti-trafficking unit. It would be clear that people on this site disapprove of trafficking and that people active in combating trafficking welcome our contribution.

That would torpedo HH and look great on Galahad's press release.

I'm not sure you're looking at this from the right angle. The budget for this unit was withdrawn in the wake of pentameter 2, which cost millions to run and achieved, actually, almost nothing. Most of the alleged trafficked girls disappeared and went back to whatever they were doing, unless they had been deported for being here without a visa.

You cannot run an expensive sledgehammer for cracking nuts. According to the anti prostitution brigade the cuntry was full of illegal workers in the sex trade, but how many were found here against their will? One dodgy example.

Sorry, funds better spent elsewhere, management decision.
