25000 Elisabeth Fritzls in the UK alone
The act of bring someone to the UK is expensive, the competition in prostitution is fierce. So the numbers don't make any sense. It does not make sense to kidnap girls and bring them to the UK and force them into sex with lots of clients and somehow hope that they won't tell the client to call the police.
It is a fantasy to suggests that 25,000 women are currently prisoners used for sex, like that Austrian girl Elisabeth Fritzl (the girl kept by her father)!
Remember that she had to be kept separate from others to stop her telling. Whereas a prostitute necessarily needs to meet lots of strange men, anyone of whom she can tell!
So the story does not make sense.
If anything this law means that the client *cannot* report suspicions to the police because Jacqui was trying to make it a crime to simply pay. So the person most able to report it, is the person she seeks to lock up. It was somewhere close to moronic thinking.
Chinese workers, most of them have paid to get here, I hear it's $10k a go. The jobs they get are lined up by the local contact to try to earn money. It's the classic travel-to-a-better-life thing that sent Irish migrants to the USA in the early 1900s. Made more difficult because of the job restrictions in the UK.
Some become sex workers, well so do many British girls. Others are luckier and find domestic cleaning jobs or similar, perhaps work for Baroness Scotland. Just because they came, couldn't find a job as a cleaner and ended up selling their pussy, doesn't mean their traffic'd, yet they are counted as traffic'd to make up the numbers.
The "mail-order brides were also victims of trafficking", is just plain insulting! They're not even prostitutes. Do any of these batty women in Labour know how insulting it is to have your wife called a prostitute because she went through a dating agency?
So the numbers are fabricated, and the people behind those numbers, have a hatefilled agenda, usually based on racism, envy, self loathing, or simply see an opportunity to enrich themselves, or empower themselves in the case of law enforcement wilfully misleading people on the real numbers.
