Gunilla Eckberg

I heard that Gunilla Eckberg has been hired to take on the trafficking/Olympics work.

I have googled, but not found any confirmation. Rather depressing I thought.

Met Police Monthly:Promoting changes to prostitution laws

Kit Malthouse met Gunilla Ekberg, Eaves' Policy and Legislative Adviser on Prostitution and Human Trafficking and expert on international human rights. They met to discuss Clause 14 of the Policing and Crime Act that will make buying sexual services illegal, they discussed ways to promote changes to 'customers', enforcing the law and what happens in other countries.

The more one reads the more it becomes obvious that there is truly vast scope for public spending cuts in the UK..... ones that will do no harm to public services.

Not unexpected, but a nice touch all the same.

And here's Malthouse, who clearly has a downer on prostitution in general and carding in particular putting out a December press release full of the standard Poppy Project disinformation:

On the face of it, hiring Gunilla Eckberg would not be the obvious solution if the government genuinely believes that there will be a real problem with trafficked sex slaves at the Olympics - it may just be gesture politics. Instead, their mindset would suggest a very costly international advertising campaign to inform all potential wealthy tourists of their flagship Strict Liability legislation. Potential visitors who may also be sex tourists could then choose not to come but to watch the proceeds on TV instead. That way demand would be reduced and "the problem solved". Unfortunately, of course, if they did that it could have well have a significant impact on the viability of the Olympics and impose yet another cost on the poor taxpayer.
