That’s proven then, socialism causes prostitution

“Eating from rubbish bins to survive was no life, so we left. But, now with the pandemic, we are in limbo, we are stuck in Colombia, and hungry again. We have gone from one crisis to another.”

Venezuela’s total economic collapse has fuelled a large-scale, complex and underfunded humanitarian crisis. An estimated 4.5 million Venezuelans have fled a country blighted by unemployment, collapsing utilities, a defunct healthcare system and severe food shortages.

And as refugees, it is women who have been the most vulnerable to labour and sexual exploitation, trafficking and violence.

Would be a useful tagline for Labour, no? Elect Corbyn and the women have to go on the game…..

    Well up to a point m’Lord Copper – it’s even more if you include those rolling fine Havannah cigars on their inviting thighs.

    Mr Lud

    No, sir – they rent out their bodies. Not sell.

    They still have the body afterwards.

    None of that owner-occupier stuff.

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    More to the point it shows that human nature is not a social construct. More men want more sex than women. So men are forced to go out and earn. Women can lie back and make a living.

    God knows there are plenty of men who would sleep with hot Latinas for a living if they could. But for some reason the market is just not there.

    Even when society breaks down and the constraints and regulations society puts on sex come under enormous strain, women can still coast while men must still earn a living. It is like a natural law or something.

  4. I’d no idea desperate Venezuelan ladies were being forced to prostitute themselves. Perhaps we could arrange some sort of special visa so they could come here and earn valuable foreign currency?

  5. So these people make a mess of their own country, dump themselves on someone else, and then whinge that they’re not being supported by the locals or the wicked white Western taxpayer.

    Venezuela is an independent country. This means the Venezuelans have to solve their own problems.

  6. They always stick trafficking in there, don’t they? I know something of what’s going on in CO. There are venezolanas who’ve managed to get themselves across the border but not much further. There are those of them who want to exploit their assets. FFS, that’s hardly front page news. It’s S.America. It’s part of the culture. Venezuela, in happier times, was known for it. According to colombianas, venezolanas are the second most attractive sexy women on the planet. They’re stuck in places there’s little demand. Yep, there are people who will facilitate them getting to Bogata, Cali, Medellin, Cartagena. Even Europe or the States. Paid up front or pay later. There is absolutely no duress about this. Apart from the need to work to eat. Like we all need to. There’s a vast over supply, so the people doing it are picking the most marketable & willing. Is this trafficking? If so, what’s EasyJet doing bringing birds from Newcastle for sun & sex holidays on the Costas? Barclaycard for facilitating it?

  7. I think you’ll find that Corbyn is no longer the Labour leader. But who needs him or indeed Keir Starmer when we have BoJo pretty much destroying the country. He is funding Councils to vandalize road networks to the tune of £2bn, amongst a string of other stupidity.

    “So these people make a mess of their own country, dump themselves on someone else, and then whinge that they’re not being supported by the locals or the wicked white Western taxpayer.”
    If they are under 38 they have not had a chance to vote in a free election in their life, so that is a bit harsh.
    If it was not for the left in the West praising Chavez it would have been easier to get rid of him.

  9. “Venezuela is an independent country. This means the Venezuelans have to solve their own problems.”
    It’s a little more complicated than that, Boganboy. Venezuela is the bit of Gran Colombia ended up having a capital in Caracas. Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Panama… I’d add Bolivia & Peru. They’re basically the same culture. There’s more differences across countries than there are across frontiers. It’s more a case of which ones are run by idiots & which ones aren’t, so much. Which particular idiots are running yours is more by luck than anything else.

  10. I’d say it’s the legacy of the mysticism of the Catholic church. Religion is very strong in S.America. You don’t often come across people who don’t believe God has a direct influence on their lives. There’s a disconnect between cause & effect. They lack the cynicism you need for a healthy democracy. Anyone promising milk ^honey with sufficient charisma is likely to get elected.

  11. “Men are preying on vulnerable families during the pandemic, small girls have been drugged and raped”.

    Take away the bit about the pandemic and where does that sound like?

    The guardian is only too ready to protest about sexual exploitation in Latin America. Rather less so when it takes place in Northern England.

  12. Ian Reid–the 2 b is not new money–the bike bullshit was already planned anyway. Blojob is a car grabbing eco-freak just like Macron –but UK has 37 Million drivers. More than enuf to see off eco-freaks if those votes can be mobilised–I’m joining ev pro-car organisation going

    Is that true in parts of Africa? And can’t get much more natural….

  15. The bike boosting does sound like something would appeal to the sedentary administrative class. A minority, because if they weren’t, nothing in the country would ever get done. Meanwhile those who do the doing do not need a 10 mile bike ride at each end of the hard working day. What a pleasure it’s going to be sitting in traffic jams watching the assholes pedalling by. 🙁

  16. I both drive and cycle. Cycle lanes painted on urban roads are a pain in the arse for motorists and cyclists alike. They cause congestion by narrowing the available road space but they are no use to cyclists either because they are always so badly designed.

  17. Completely O/T, but has anyone seen this?

    https://lockdownsceptics.org/2020/07/29/

    A sample of a thousand people believe that some 6-7% of the population have already died of Covid? The implications are mind boggling wrt “an average”, given for example that most people reading on here (or that we know) are unlikely to be so utterly misinformed. It starts to bring the desperate desire by some for face nappies into context?

    And not just the UK, other countries too?

  18. A sample of a thousand people believe that some 6-7% of the population have already died of Covid?

    To paraphrase the late great George Carlin: Just think how fucking stupid the average Joe in this country is – and then realise that 50% of the people are even more moronic than that!

  19. 7% of UK pop=4.5 million. 9x the orig panic fig of 0.5 million and 10x approx UK casualties in WW2.

    I think that would frighten them but it is probably all just abstract numbers echoing through empty heads.

  20. Ecks

    Notwithstanding the fact that Patrick has it, I think you are broadly right re the notion of empty heads and percentages. But consider also that a large number of people will have correctly replied at the sub 1% level. That means an awful lot of people went in with numbers a whole lot higher than 7% ……

    I haven’t bothered to analyse it, but they give the SD numbers, which I suspect will demonstrate that the “variation” of responses was *quite high*!

  21. Saw something on modern slavery and it included 15 million women in forced marriages in the number.
    Funnily enough no where in the article did it refer to cultural differences being an issue.

  22. Reality check: Do you know 20 people? Have you noticed one stopped breathing recently? Started to smell ripe? Has gone a sort of greenish grey colour? Flies?

    Africa too and UK heading in same direction….
    …by importing them
    The only way to stop the boats is to effect instant returns” a former UK Border Force chief tells LBC how to stop migrant boats coming to the UK
    If the government wanted to stop it, they would. Conclusion = they don’t

    It’s a dispiriting example of our ‘world leading’ education system

    Meanwhile, true figure is a mere 0.06%
    After 9 months, Global deaths are ~650,000 – similar to number who die in UK alone every year
