Google Advertising Link wording?

14 posts in this topic

I have just noticed the Home Office now have a sponsored link on Google. This pops up when you run a search for Escorts - doesn't happen every time.

The sponsored link/banner has the following text;

From 1st of April sex with forced prostitutes will be illegal

It appears either top of the page or to the right-hand side with a link to the relevant homeoffice page.

www.homeoffice.gov.uk/prostitution

The banner/listing does not mention any payment promised or otherwise. So two questions how does everyone feel about the banner being there near their adverts?Well for ladies who have sites listed below this does it make it look as if we are forced?Is the word illegal so close to our info going to put guys off?

And of course the wording, is it misleading?

It's not Labour it's one politician with her own ideas, completely missing the point and getting away with it because we have this recession and pending election to side-track everyone.

After leaving university and before getting a seat in Parliament, HH was the legal officer of the National Council of Civil Liberties. Now, what she does is to try to restrict them. Poacher turned gamekeeper ?

Incidentally, Strawberry, her middle name is Ruth !

So better make sure you don't have sex with a woman who could be, or could have ever accepted money for sex!

IMHO this is dishonest and disgraceful. Typical of HH and the rest of her gang.

Not really, what it doesn't state though is that not having sex with forced prostitutes will also be illegal.

Section 14 (14 Paying for sexual services of a prostitute subjected to force etc.: England and Wales) clearly states that it is irellevant whether sexual services are provided.

Tounge in cheek.

Mebbe someone should do an FOI request to find how much this is costing us?

I'm sure the request will be accepted, but I suspect the answer may be delayed for some inexplicable reason until the 7th May ;)

It's what you get with a politicised civil service.

For several years I have noticed recruiting adverts for the Home Office that offer opportunities to "develop policies and strategies". In my book that is political advisers.

Every book I have read on the British Constitution has stressed that the separation of policy making and execution and administration is one of the essential elements.

ie it for the Minister to propose and the Civil servant to point out why it won't work. But in the last 20 years this has been subverted by political appointments and departments becoming as dedicated as parties to pushing stuff through. Hence so much crap law (in all areas)

The worrying things for me is me are the vagueness of the wording, as, it's not defined what constitutes force. Does having a tax bill to pay, and being threatened with eviction count?

As for the not knowing section, well, that's just unfair, but, it's not unique, sadly.

No that tax should have already been paid on monies earned and is therefore a genuine debt, HMRC follow up via completely legal procedures. Besides HMRC are not saying you must prostitute yourself in order to pay the bill, they have right of appeal and will let you negotiate payment.
