Inquiry fails to find single trafficker who forced anybody into prostitution

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 failure has been disclosed by a Guardian investigation which also suggests that the scale of and nature of sex trafficking into the UK has been exaggerated by politicians and media.

Current and former ministers have claimed that thousands of women have been imported into the UK and forced to work as sex slaves, but most of these statements were either based on distortions of quoted sources or fabrications without any source at all.

The Guardian

There you have it, straight from the horse's mouth. I have been saying the same thing for years.

Thanks for putting this up, Heretic. I've just now posted on the Guardian.

What I'm wondering is why the sudden surge of honesty from a national newspaper?

My only answer is that, due to many years of diminishing popularity, newspapers are now trying to recover some of their lost readers.

And the serious papers are trying to achieve this by printing facts, rather than by experimenting with new genres of exciting lies.

I'm cautiously optimistic. This is definitely a move in the right direction. But whether it's the beginning of a trend we'll have to wait a few months to see.

It is a surprise that this modern myth has been knocked down. Not that this will stop Harmen from going on about trafficking and the need to 'protect' women. You see facts do not effect a good argument as far as feminists are concerned.

Already Guardian feminist writers are complaining about Nick Davies' excellent (and factual) report.

But this raises an important question. Now that the exploitation of women by men in this area is a proven myth, it is surely time for CELEBRATION by feminists.

But we are seeing the opposite. Why are feminists not breaking open bottles of champaigne?

The answer is clear. Because their primary goal is to attack men. It is not to rescue women that, needless to say, don't need rescuing.

"it is surely time for CELEBRATION by feminists"

A rational person would think so. This confused me for years. I would try to show feminists that the world is not half as bad as they say it is, expecting them to be relieved. Instead they became angry and hostile. It took me a long time to see that feminism is a fascist cult religion, an intellectual parasite. It NEEDS the oppression of women to exist in order to justify its own existence. It gives them power, taxpayers' money, and cushy public-sector sinecures. They have no intention of giving this up. As Neil Hamilton said after his false rape accusation, 'There's gold in them there lies!'

Can I add one thing Heretical that feminism gives. Something that is often overlooked. It gives people and politician an easy and extensive pre-prepared lexicon of arguments.

When I was much younger than I am today and first went to University I rather despised the other students. It seemed to me that they where eager to have other people put ideas into their minds so that they could then have some thoughts. These implanted thoughts then became the mantra of these students.

So it is with feminism it has provided a lot of easy arguments which can be pre-learned and internalised, to then be produced at will in order to win the argument. Remember people like to win arguments even if they are wrong.

So feminism is the new catechism.

So feminism is the new catechism.

Leading psychologist Carl G. Jung has observed that when men lose religion, it gets displaced by mass mentalities. (The psyche's link to religion was central to Jung's work. He fell out with Freud over it.)

Feminism is one such mass mentality. (Nazism, football fanaticism and the paedo panic are other examples.)

The worrying thing is that:

1. The press create such mass mentalities to boost their sales; and

2. Politicians base policy on them to win votes.

For us it boils down to this. We're drowning in a torrent of lies to feed the power ambitions of newspaper magnates and control freaks in government.
