Stand By For More Dodgy Statistics On Trafficking!

5 posts in this topic

And not even a mention of prostitution in the article, just a blurred pic of a couple of street girls who, for all we know, are not even here illegally.

Yep, on an article on prostitution and/or trafficking some newspapers/websites always use a pic of streetwalkers. Most sex workers in the UK don't work the street, but the BBC/daily mail/daily record don't care they are happy to keep feeding stereotypes.

These pics are usually stock photos posed by models

From: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-24033310:
"Her proposed Human Trafficking Bill aims to make it illegal to punish people forced to commit crime as a result of their trafficking."

This sounds like a perfect get-out clause for any foreign national caught picking pockets/shoplifting/whatever: "You can't prosecute me, I was forced to do it!"

It's another example of probably quite deliberately confusing the issue in order to gain a little media exposure and surf a wave of moral panic.

After the bbc covered up the abuse of jimmy saville, are they in any position to preach morality?  and we also have another bbc celebrity-stuart hall now serving a prison term for sexual abuse
