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.
