The odious Dennis MacShane

Re trafficking, sex slavery etc.

His argument seems to be that the Mail published a piece saying that trafficking and sex slavery pretty much doesn\’t exist. But the Mail has also published pieces that say it does.

Therefore MacShane is right and there is lots of trafficking and sex slavery and no, it doesn\’t matter that he just made the numbers up out of thin air.

What he does fail to mention is that the Mail piece is essentially a rewrite of Nick Davies\’ piece from the Guardian (what an American journalist would call a \”cookie cutting\” piece) and makes extensive references to Davies and the research he did.

Research which showed that MacShane\’s numbers of trafficking were indeed simply pulled from his arse.

God the man\’s an odious little shit.

  1. Funny how Barnardo’s pull their paedo bogeyman out of the hat only days after being named-and-shamed in the trafficking of child migrants to Oz.

  2. “And that’s a gravy train that the Barnardo’s chief is desperate to climb aboard…”

    Thousands of teachers are referred to List 99.

    One single school in Humberside may be able to beat the combined UKHTC statistical record re: child exploitation for sex trafficking combined.

    So Barnardos, would appear to be onto something that Poppy/Eaves gave a pass to. I think Poppy/Object were too keen on teacher union coalitioning.

    That kind of rules out child sex trafficking.

    There is presently a vicious smearing affair between the legitimate (global) & the Blair Babe set (UK).

    ( guess who is doing the McPoisoning?)

    What makes you think the Guardian/Observer were not tipped off by abolitionists in the USA?

    Because they were. Real abolitionists didn’t want a fake program, with all the money given to a tiny circle of friends.

    Or pimps getting off scot free and the cleaning lady going to prison.

    Which happened under Pentameter II. The UKHTC is a post office box, it was a spin-doctoring exercise.

    Since when has Jacqui Smith presided over a real initiative? It was a fake thing.

  4. “The ECP did not, for example, claim that there is no sex trafficking.”

    Reverse image of the UKHTC thing.

    If we are pointing the finger at one misinformation campaign, we should do the other as well.

    The Guardian could have run that article in 2008. They’d already been given the data. It was delayed to go with the debate in the House of Lords.

    It only took *one* police ( force area) agency to trip up, for the UKHTC scam to unfold.

    Which happened.

  5. Just a thought- if the current law defines trafficking a prostitute as widely as the guardian article implies- doesn’t that put the Railway company in the dock? (I’m assuming some of these girls take the train to work).
