I'm not sure it's all that funny

Via Timmy, this:

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.

When partner Stefan and me coming to UK with two girls we poor. Now everything fine and good polismen now working for us too.

You pay for good polis and get good polis. Some working now as girls but maybe shemales some. We give nice time free to polis and no arrests, no convictions or torubles.

Nothing remotely funny about this, the least funny part is the response of the Eaves R&D Manager. The standard response, and we will hear much more of this, is "it's very hard to find, so just because a hugely expensive and time-consuming attempt to find trafficking victims didn't find any, that doesn't mean the problem is over-stated". Thus we begin again.
By the way, WTF does Eaves need a R&D manager for? What could she possibly be developing?

"failed to find a single person who had forced anybody into prostitution"

Not right Obo, every week on The Bill there are wimmin' being forced into prostitution by the worst kind of abuser, MEN.

If it was on the telly then it must be right, right?

I rest my case. (Fuck, forgot to tape the XFactor and Corrie...fuck!)

not a total waste of money, I mean , we now have senior policemen saying that its blown out of proportion and such.

it WILL be a waste of money if its persued in some sort of 'I-didnt-like-that-answer-no-go-and-find-me-the-right-one' program.

If the bitch pitched up here that might persuade me to get on a plane back to Blighty. Or paint her with offal and launch her into the water by the nearest shark feeding ground to whichever airport... yeah, better idea.

It's typical socialist selfish world-moulding. As with all of their scare stories, they are only formulated to usher in another of their illiberal pieces of legislation. Eco-taxes - global warming, Smoking ban - passive smoking, Alcohol restrictions - unit abuse and drinking 'epidemic', Obligatory healthy food/veganism - obesity 'epidemic'.

They spend and spend and become increasingly shrill, they scare, fingerwag and release fake science. Yet none of the scares hold any element of truth.

This is a wimmins issue yet Labour's avalanche of propaganda is, as always, completely at odds with the few true experts who haven't been paid for.

Labour's Mary Honeyball has been humiliated on her blog about this particular story by said experts but still won't give in.

Selfish socialist dogma. Pure and simple. It's why I secretly hope there is a hell.
