Whittingdale’s supposed great shame was that he’d dated a woman who was a sex worker. He hadn’t known, and he’d chucked her the moment he found out. Maybe he broke up with her because she had misrepresented herself to him. That’s fair enough. But the idea seems to be that it was simply because she was a sex worker. Which would certainly explain why she didn’t tell him.
One moment all whores are sex slaves cowering beneath those who have trafficked them. Next they’re delightfully independent women who should be able to go out on a date without anyone thinking anything of it.
Consistency? That’s just for the little people, not The Guardian.
