The UK's biggest ever investigation of sex trafficking failed to find a single person who had forced anybody into prostitution in spite of hundreds of raids on sex workers in a six-month campaign by government departments, specialist agencies and every police force in the country.
The whole article (in the fucking Graun, one of the biggest promoters of this ludicrosity!!) is well worth a read. Especially when you read a very senior copper saying shit like this:
The head of the UK Human Trafficking Centre, Grahame Maxwell, who is chief constable of North Yorkshire, acknowledged the importance of the figures: "The facts speak for themselves. I'm not trying to argue with them in any shape or form," he said.
He said he had commissioned fresh research from regional intelligence units to try to get a clearer picture of the scale of sex trafficking. "What we're trying to do is to get it gently back to some reality here," he said.
"It's not where you go down on every street corner in every street in Britain, and there's a trafficked individual.
"There are more people trafficked for labour exploitation than there are for sexual exploitation. We need to redress the balance here. People just seem to grab figures from the air."
No fucking shit, er, Sherlock.
But while Timmy is pissing himself from schadenfreude, I'm less amused. How much police (and other) resource has been wasted on the aggrandizement of Harridan Harmperson's fucking ego and self-righteous identity politics? How many actual crimes were not solved because the politicised police force was one a-fucking-gain spending its time appeasing the bloated egos of politicians?
How much actual blood is on your hands, Harriet Harman and Jacqui Smith? How many people will spend their lives worse off because of your grandstanding?
Really: this has been a monstrous waste of critical resources for no benefit to the country. If you had any decency, you would resign and go live far away from your shame. But because you are New Labour politicians, you will not contemplate such a thing. Instead, you will move on to your next "initiative", trumpeting your shameless, moral "self-righteousness" while you steal from the taxpayer and hector us some more.
I hope you all rot, painfully, to death. And that your children burn you in effigy every day thereafter.
