The number of people being trafficked into the UK for the sex trade or slave labour is rising, figures show, as immigration minister Mark Harper warns there are \”not enough\” prosecutions.
This particular story about trafficking not being a statistically illiterate one. Not that I can see immediately that is. But the whole furore about sex trafficking was indeed one of the most absurd demonstrations of statistical illiteracy we\’ve seen for a long time. Remember Julie Bindel and her \”80% of tarts in London are foreigners therefore 80% of tarts are trafficked\”?
And as the Royals Statistical Society is pointing out, that was, however absurd, enough to get the law changed.
